The Prescott Chamber of Commerce is designed to provide you with a significant amount of information about our beautiful, idyllic community. We call Prescott “Everybody’s Hometown” because most people find something here that reminds them of where they grew up. To many, it is the historic County Courthouse, tree-lined plaza and surrounding shops in the downtown area. To others, it is the overall small-town charm and hospitality. People are friendly here, and you’ll notice it no matter where you are in our community.
The Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce promotes advancing a strong business climate and vibrant economy by being an advocate for business and a catalyst for community and economic development in the greater Flagstaff region.

It is the mission of the Coconino Humane Association to operate a humane and caring shelter that will give aid to unwanted, abandoned, and mistreated animals in Flagstaff and across northern Arizona. It is our goal to investigate cruelty and take appropriate action, to disseminate information of humane treatment of animals, and wherever possible to foster humane education throughout the northern Arizona area. We pride ourselves on being a voice for dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals in Coconino County.
Early in 1972 a small group of interested citizens of Prescott, Arizona met to form a society for the prevention of cruelty to animals. They named their new organization the Yavapai County Humane Society and on March 27th of that year incorporated under the laws of the State of Arizona. Lou Silverstein was one of the original founding members of the Yavapai Humane Society and first signature on the papers of incorporation.

Prescott Moose Lodge # 319 will be offering a non-certified, hands-only CPR/AED and basic first aid training event on Saturday, February 13, at the Moose Family Center, 6501 E. 6th St. Prescott Valley, AZ 86314.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the public can learn how to perform hands-only CPR and assist a person who has experienced a sudden cardiac arrest. In just five minutes, anyone age 8 or older can learn a skill they hope to never use: cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR.
Hands-only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by individuals who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting, such as at home, at work, or in a park.
The first aid training will cover scene safety, visual examination, shock, fainting, nose bleed, bone injuries, burns, poisoning, bites & stings, and recognition of heart attack and stroke.
Local paramedics and emergency medical technicians will teach hands-only CPR, the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) which may restart the heart, and basic first aid.
