Copper Mountain Fire Chief Gary Curmode is serving as the liaison agency representative for the Vail Valley Foundation (VVF) in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. His job is to assist VVF with information to disseminate to other members of the EOC. Likewise, if the EOC receives important information that may affect the VVF in the field and the ski venues, either directly or indirectly, he expedites this information to them.
In Gary’s words, “it is a privilege to work with the caliber of people in both the VVF and the EOC. They are first class!” The Copper Mountain Fire Department is located 19 miles east of Vail on Interstate 70.
