Tahoe SAFE Alliance's Crisis Intervention Training is an intensive 68-hour course being held on a combination of Tuesday and Thursdays evenings, 6-9 p.m. and three Saturdays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Trainees must attend all sessions, to be conducted at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center in Incline Village.
