City seeks input on ADA transition plan

The city of Los Altos is soliciting citizens’ input on a plan to improve programs and facilities for those with disabilities.

The city council is scheduled to consider adoption of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan at its April 8 meeting. Work on the federally mandated self-evaluation and transition plan kicked off approximately a year ago.

The plan requires the city to conduct a wide-ranging review of ADA accessibility needs and requirements for its existing policies, facilities, programs and services.

Residents are invited to comment on the plan at the council meeting scheduled 7 p.m. April 8 at Los Altos City Hall’s Community Meeting Chambers at 1 N. San Antonio Road.

A draft of the ADA Transition Plan is available for review at losaltosca.gov.

Public safety seminar includes workshops

Women from high school age through 35 are invited to learn more about career opportunities with the fire service at the Santa Clara County Fire Department’s inaugural Public Safety Women’s Career Day Symposium, scheduled 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the McCormack Training Center, 485 W. Sunnyoaks Ave., Campbell.

Capt. Deborah Stocksick will open the event with a general presentation on the fire service.

Workshops will include an opportunity for participants to extend a hose line into a smoke-filled structure, test “Jaws of Life” equipment, climb a 75-foot ladder and learn about fitness testing.
