Glad to find this topic. I'm in Broken Arrow. I have a question for all of you in Oklahoma. I've got a few brand new green members. I need your thoughts and opinions, not just my own. I have to do some training investigations to get the new members aquainted and experienced with using the equipment and protocols. Where you do recommend I take them for the first 3-4 training hits?
I was thinking to start small with them. A cemetery, and also using my own home or one of theirs for a "spoof" home investigation. To get them familiar. Some of the members have experience so the new members can definately watch and learn but I want to know what you all think.
I think a spoof "residential investigation" is a good idea, it never hurts to see how new members will react in situations with "home owners". It's a whole different ballgame compared to abandoned locations.
I'm not too familiar with the area around broken arrow, so i don't have any good suggestions for other places.
