Videos document emergency response to West Salt Creek Landslide

Mesa County this week released a series of videos documenting the emergency response to the May 25, 2014, landslide on the Grand Mesa.

The videos were produced to help others who may need to respond to a large-scale natural disaster.

“It is our hope that the lessons learned from the West Salt Creek Landslide response can help others when responding to disasters in their communities,” said Pete Baier, Mesa County’s Public Works Director. “We also feel one way to honor the memory of the three men who died in the West Salt Creek Landslide is to pass on the knowledge and lessons learned.”

The shortest video can be viewed on Mesa County’s YouTube channel (click here). The other three videos will be used at conferences, training seminars, and internally to teach others about the emergency response.
