Carle Chronicle: It's hazmat month

March has begun and so has hazmat training. Hazma (hazardous materials) training is usually a three-day course, but Angie Siegel, our science teacher, has taken the time out of her busy schedule to teach the course from March 5 through 13. The extra time will help our students get a better grasp on this very adult course.

The course helps students in the future who want to pursue a career in firefighting, trucking, law enforcement, toxicology or paramedic services.

Lakeshore Fire Chief Willy Sapeta let students experience what it’s like to wear real protective gear. They got to dress in a self-contained breathing apparatus and learned to decontaminate an infected area without putting themselves, others, the environment or anything else in danger.

Crystal Engelking said, “Imagine the panic and confusion of where to go, what to do and how to stay safe when a dangerous chemical is spilled in a city or anywhere. I’ll be one of the few people who knows how to control hazardous situations because of this excellent opportunity I have in hazmat.”

On March 7 there was a student-staff luncheon. The students who got to enjoy home-cooked chicken chili with our staff was Crystal Engelking, Brianna Dorner, Christina Orr, Holly Bray, Matthew Tipton, Tiffany Robinson, Mike Galli and Natosha Hill. The cooks were Pat Hand, Skyler Freeman, Melanie Ferriera, Natosha Hill, Jacob Gonzales, Cecile Girk and Holly Bray.

Our culinary students also got to go to Napa Valley Cooking School for a field trip. They got to have a look at this possible college choice.

We would like to thank Janelle Benefiel, Tony Bouscal and Gwen Benefiel for letting us use their beautiful Cobb Mountain property on Saturday, March 10, to have a super fun paintball game.

Thanks for reading!
