Biz group participates in de-escalation trainingFeb 23, 2017 By Andrea Novotny, Staff Writer
Fremont County Leadership participants completed the deescalation unit of the course Feb. 16 at the Central Wyoming College.
The program, managed by the Lander and Riverton chambers of commerce, focuses on training professionals and giving participants the opportunity to network and learn about how various organizations throughout Fremont County function. Some participate on an individual basis, while others participate through their company. Jennifer Lamb, participating through the Nature Conservancy, said she took the course to learn about different organizations in the county and to engage more fully as a citizen.
"It's a good way to get a really good perspective on how the county ticks," she said. "I think it's really broadened my understanding of what it takes to operate a municipality. You wouldn't get an opportunity to really look through their lens unless you have an opportunity like we had today." There are 16 participants in this year's class.
