Operation Snowflake

On February 4, 2007 we hosted Operation Snowflake in the City of Aurora.  Operation Snowflake was a simulation of a major snow storm for metropolitan Citizen Corps units.  It was in development for about three months and mostly under the radar, but on December 22, 2006 a major snow storm in Colorado collapsed roofs at Aurora’s Hoffman Heights Shopping Center and that brought a lot of attention to Operation Snowflake, resulting in much media coverage:

The exercise was attended by CERT, ARES and CAP and supported by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and Cunningham Fire Protection District.  We are grateful for the extensive media coverage to get the word about the program out.
