Skinner brings disaster program to hometown

Formidable Footprint to be offered for Sturbridge groups Oct. 29

October 13, 2011
STURBRIDGE — Community volunteers, neighborhood groups and faith-based organizations will soon have an opportunity to participate in an exercise that allows them to work together during an online disaster simulation.

The Stoneybrook Group, a Sturbridge-based company owned by Ric Skinner, has co-developed a national series of unique online disaster exercises with the Disaster Resistant Communities Group, of Tallahassee, Fla. This non-commercial exercise series is known as Formidable Footprint, and it is free to participants.

On Saturday, Oct. 29, a Formidable Footprint tornado exercise will be available for various groups and organizations in Sturbridge.

"This exercise will allow teams to assess their skills and capabilities and identify where there are strengths that need to be maintained and weaknesses that need to be strengthened," Skinner said.
