Think Employee VTO

Think Network Technologies loves to give back to the community. One of the ways that we give back is by having our employees get out there and volunteer! Recently, our very own Kenneth Horne utilized his Volunteer Time Off (VTO) to help out at the Hesperus Ski Swap.

If you know Kenneth then you know that he absolutely loves to SKI! That’s why this was the perfect way for him to use his VTO by helping the good folks over at Hesperus Ski Patrol at their 53rd annual Hesperus Ski Swap.

He spent the whole day (8am – 5pm) loading and unloading, stocking, checking in the public, organizing and everything else except for sales. Kenneth enjoyed using his first VTO for something that he truly enjoys and for a very worthy cause.

Hesperus Ski Patrol (HSP), a member of the National Ski Patrol (NSP) has been promoting safe skiing practices and EMS (Emergency Medical Service) Services at Ski Hesperus for over fifty years.  As an all volunteer organization, their patrollers participate due to their passion to provide emergency response at the highest level.  Their EMS qualifications range from OEC (Outdoor Emergency Care), an EMS certification regulated by the NSP, EMT’s, Paramedics, RN’s, RNP’s, and MD’s.

Hesperus Ski Patrol also has more that 150 years of Avalanche Instruction Experience.  Avalanche Awareness will introduce

students to:

*Avalanche Triggers

*Route Selection

*Hazard Recognition/ Terrain Analysis

*Stability Testing

*Rescue Techniques

*Beacon Operation

*Strategic Shoveling

*Emergency Survival

*Snow Pack & Snow Pits


Thank you Hesperus Ski Patrol for everything you do and thanks to Kenneth for volunteering and helping them out.
