When emergencies happen, seconds count and soon, Morenci will have a contingent of extra helpers who could make the difference between life and death.

The Greenlee County Sheriff’s Office and the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Office have teamed up to start the GEAR Up program. During an occasional 55-minute class, volunteer instructors/first responders will teach Morenci High School freshmen CPR and light first aid. They’ll also introduce them to such concepts as disaster preparedness, fire safety and suppression, basic search and rescue, home planning, disaster preparedness and triage.
