USACE park rangers train for self defense

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District Success Lake park ranger Nicole Arbelo uses training pepper spray on San Francisco District Lake Mendocino park ranger Wayne Shull during annual training for the Corps’ South Pacific Division park rangers here, March 16, 2011. The mandatory training serves more than 100 park rangers from Corps districts in the southwestern United States. “The training they receive here this week helps them to assist each other in all types of situations,” said Jon Friedman, senior district ranger for the Corps’ Sacramento District and the lead pepper spray instructor for the division. “These rangers are like family to each other, and knowing how to use these tactics and tools helps them to defend themselves and their brothers and sisters on the job.” Corps park rangers must complete certification training annually to carry pepper spray for self defense.
