Changes to Crowd Manager Program Requirements
As of May 12, 2020 the requirements for use of crowd managers at events will change. Crowd managers will now be required for indoor events with greater than 500 attendees (down from 1000). The ratio remains the same, 1 crowd manager for every 250 attendees.
For outdoor events, the number is 1000 attendees with the same 1:250 ratio.

Spring Safety Tips
As spring approaches, please remember the following safety tips:
As you set your clocks forward, check your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms. Make sure they work, change the batteries, replace if needed.
When spring cleaning, read and observe the warning labels on cleaning products. Do not mix products, and ensure you are in a well ventilated area.
Make sure your lawn mowers, tractors, weed eaters etc. are all in good working condition, and have them serviced if needed.
