How the SBA Helps Veterans

Three Business Resources for Veterans

May is Military Appreciation Month. Each year, the SBA serves over 200,000 veterans, service-disabled veterans and military spouses across the United States and at military installations around the globe.

To veterans: You served our country, now let the SBA serve you. The following are three ways the SBA serves veterans:

1. Boots to Business is a two-step entrepreneurial program offered by the SBA on military installations around the world as a training track of the Department of Defense (DOD) Transition Assistance Program (TAP).

2. Boots to Business: Reboot extends the entrepreneurship training offered in TAP on military installations to veterans of all eras and their spouses.

3. Veteran Business Outreach Center (VBOC) provides entrepreneurial development services such as business training, counseling and mentoring for eligible veterans owning or considering starting a small business.

The Boeing Co. is looking to hire its next wave of workers during a series of five job fairs around the Puget Sound region and in Yakima.

The aerospace giant says it is seeking thousands of applicants – starting Thursday – for open positions in non-management manufacturing fields.

Specifically, Boeing says it is looking for veterans who have recently separated from the military or recent graduates of academic manufacturing programs, including high school and community college programs.
Current examples of open positions include assemblers, hand finishers, functional testers, painters and many more. The company wants people with experience or training in construction, automotive mechanic, auto body repair, electrical, precision machining, welding, aircraft mechanic, and other like manufacturing programs.
The five job fairs will allow applicants to create online profiles, apply for open positions and speak with human resources personnel.

SPD Officers Use Naloxone, CPR to Revive man

Published on May 23, 2017
Police responded to a report of a man down in the 1500 block of 9th Avenue just before midnight and were quickly flagged down by a woman. The woman pointed officers to a man lying on the sidewalk, and said he had recently used heroin.

Officer Jared Levitt and Sergeant Dave Hockett saw the 40-year-old man was struggling to breathe and gave him a dose of nasal naloxone and began CPR a short time later.

SFD medics arrived and took over treatment of the man, who regained consciousness and was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

This incident marks the 16th time officers have used Naloxone since Seattle police began carrying it in mid-March. The case will become part of the ongoing study conducted by the University of Washington into SPD’s use of Naloxone for a possible department-wide deployment.

As a reminder, Washington law provides immunity from criminal drug possession charges for anyone seeking medical aid for themselves or someone else experiencing an overdose.
