Five new LOSS Team volunteers were trained on Friday, August 25, 2017, and will be part of the Four County suicide response efforts. The new volunteers include Joyce Klear of Bryan, Richard Sheets of Defiance, Kathro Yoder of Defiance, Jan Lindsay of Archbold, and Karen VonDeylen of Malinta (pictured below). Tonie Long of the Four County ADAMhs Board, trained the volunteers on the impact of suicide on families and communities, the history of the LOSS Team, and the Four County LOSS Team response protocol. The day-long training included information on crime scene etiquette, which was provided by Sergeant Bryan Coger of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department.
