Thank You To All Who Volunteered On 08/26!

Patrollers and CSVs:

Thank you for the generous donation of your time to help keep the Castro safe on Saturday. We had a total of 28 volunteers who put on the safety vest during the day for a visible safety presence and the willingness to step into the few situations that needed attention.
The one serious event of the day was the medical emergency involving the man who passed out in front of Twin Peaks bar. Our EMT volunteer Greg Albrecht was able to immediately attend to the victim’s needs and the Patrol teams were able to form a protective cordon around the scene and then escort the SFFD first responders and ambulance crew into and out of the area quickly.
For those of you who worked the early shift, please know that the teams who stayed in the Castro in the afternoon and evening received compliments on your behalf. Some of these came from organizers of the myriad of other groups that were part of the event (we worked with 24 community organizers in the 2 weeks leading up to Saturday), but most of the praise came from random strangers who saw your good work and recognized our distinctive uniforms.
There are a few photos of various volunteers here:
Invitation to Join CCOP
We want to remind the SCVs of our upcoming training workshop for new Castro Patrol volunteers. The 60th training event will take place on Saturday, September 16 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Invite friends to join as well. Seats are limited, but if you try to register after the number is exceeded, send me an e-mail and we will “force” an extra seat into the system. (Just in case we are overwhelmed with requests, we might need to ask you to wait until the next training day on November 7.)
To reserve your seat (and read more details about becoming a Patroller), follow this link:
