Behind the scenes, a statewide avalanche center like the CAIC needs support from beyond: Brian Rodine of the Friends of CAIC explains on TDP how the non-profit builds avalanche awareness.
Episode 105 of TDP features an interview with Brian Rodine of the Friends of the CAIC. Rodine is the organization’s marketing and events director and trailhead program manager. According to their website, “The Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center is a 501(c)3 organization that was created to support the CAIC, while contributing to avalanche awareness and education throughout Colorado. Since 2014 we have invested just over $2.4 million into avalanche safety. This money has funded Know Before You Go, developed avalanche safety videos and signage, created outreach for new and existing users, built new web and mobile applications, and supported the CAIC’s forecast operations.”
Rodine speaks to the TDP crew face-to-face, which might not seem like such a big deal. But as we exit from our masked-up world, it is.
