NCHH30 Throwback Thursday

Week 33: January 12, 2023

by Christopher Bloom

NCHH turned THIRTY this year, so we’re celebrating with a new “Throwback Thursday” photo each week.

With frigid weather and harsh winter storms battering the country, we’re reminded of this throwback to April 2013 featuring NCHH’s Sherry Dixon and Amanda Reddy, along with Bill Menrath (University of Cincinnati) and Sherry’s nephew Brian vacationing in sunny Tobago. Sherry was already a certified rescue scuba diver, but Amanda and Bill both earned their scuba certifications while on the island. We wish we were there this month!

But seriously, winter weather is no laughing matter—that’s why NCHH created a new toolkit last year called Emergency Preparedness and Response: Extreme Cold. The toolkit contains over 25 new or established resources related weathering cold temperatures safely, and we think you’ll be impressed at how comprehensive it is. Check it out when you have a few minutes.

See You Next Week

We hope that you’ve enjoyed this throwback in honor of our 30th anniversary. Remember that we’ll post a new throwback every Thursday morning at 9:04 a.m. on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter through May 25, 2023. If you’ve missed a previous post, you can always reminisce with us via our NCHH30 gallery.
