Are you interested in leadership and trail work? Why not consider becoming a Friends’ volunteer Crew Leader. The role of the Crew Leader is to ensure volunteer participants have a safe and enjoyable Trail Care experience, while managing the technical tasks of a particular project.
As Crew Leader, it is required that you have some trail building/maintenance experience, and basic first aid certification. First aid full course and re-certification training is offered by Alberta Parks in March. To ensure volunteer Crew Leaders are well prepared to lead volunteer groups, we provide an annual one-day Crew Leader training which consists of:
Indoor Session: Review the role and responsibility, risk management, first aid protocols, paper-work logistics, volunteer tracking and trail day event reporting. This is a good opportunity to meet other crew leaders and hear more about our plans for the upcoming trail season. Crew leaders will receive a Crew Leader Manual that includes information related to the above outlined topics covered during the training in addition to information about trail anatomy, maintenance, construction and tools.
Field Session: Training is facilitated by a professional trail builder who will review tool safety, trail anatomy, and additional field safety practices.
Crew Leader Training dates are being determined and will be sometime in May.
