MINTURN ” SteamMaster Restoration and Cleaning is sponsoring 500 bike helmets for area kids. Vail Valley Medical Center’s chapter of ThinkFirst, an international organization teaching kids to be safe in their daily lives, gives free bike helmets to youngsters. The helmets are properly fitted to each child at school presentations and local events.

“ThinkFirst not only wants kids to wear bike helmets, but to wear them properly fitted,” says ThinkFirst Director Kim Greene. “Wearing a bike helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by as much as 85 percent.”

ThinkFirst approached SteamMaster to sponsor the helmets as a way to help reduce helmet costs, since it gives away hundreds of helmets every year.

“SteamMaster is proud to donate to a worthy cause such as this,” Steammaster co-owner Gary Gilman said. “This program has helped save lives.”

EAGLE ” Human Resources Plus an outsourcing and consulting company, recently announced that co-owners Hollis Dempsey and Rebecca Sobek have obtained their Senior Professional Human Resource recertification from the Society of Human Resource Management, the world’s largest professional association devoted to human resource management. Of the group’s 250,000 members, only 17 percent hold the distinction of the certification of Senior Professional Human Resource.

“We have a made a long-term career commitment of being an expert in our field and bringing measurable results to our clients and customers,” Dempsey said.

“Currently the world of human resources is on the fast track of changes both at the federal and state level so it is imperative that we stay abreast of these sweeping changes,” Sobek said.
