Granby welcomes two new businesses

Two new businesses offering services in drug testing/collections and safety training have opened their doors in downtown Granby. Easy Screening, Inc. and Technical Support Services are now up and running at 247 E. Agate Ave., located next door (to the west) of Budget Tackle.

Cherene Black operates Easy Screening, Inc. Her business conducts workplace drug testing and physicals. Black also can offer training and consultation in other areas, such as substance abuse assessments, mental health services and referral services.

“We are mobile specialists in providing products and services related to Department of Transportation Safety Regulation compliance. We also offer services for compliance for drug-free workplace businesses,” Black said.

“We are experts in managing your workplace drug testing with an interest in providing services at a lower cost and higher efficiency,” she said. “We come to your workplace – office, field site or roadside.”

Black, who is an advanced practice nurse and a clinical nurse specialist, can also provide Department of Transportation driver medical exams and pre-employment physicals.

“I do it at a considerable savings,” she said, usually 60-70 percent less than the same physicals offered in a medical clinic.

Black also provides mental health services including psychiatric evaluations, counseling and substance abuse assessments and referrals.

Black has lived in Grand County since 2001 and her business can be reached by calling 970-887-3177 or e-mail at or visit the website at

Technical Support Services, which operates out of the same office, is owned and operated by Donna and Steve Johnson. Their business offers professional safety training with instructors certified through Medic First Aid and (ASHI) American Health and Safety Institute.

They offer classes for groups or individuals in Medic First Aid, basic CPR (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation) and first aid for adults, pediatric CPR and first aid for children, infants and adults. Instruction is also offered in “care plus” CPR and AED for adults, children and infants, oxygen first aid for emergencies and instruction on how to deal with blood borne pathogens.

Instruction is available either in the office in Granby or at other locations, depending on the needs of the customers.

The company also offers two classes in the field of wilderness emergency care, offering sessions in basic wilderness emergency care and wilderness first aid.

They also offer babysitter training.

Steve Johnson began his medical training in 1980 as a U.S. Navy hospital corpsman and combat medic for the U.S. Marine Corps. He has additional training as a member of the national registry of EMTs, Colorado state firefighter and more.

Donna Johnson began her emergency response training as an extradition specialist in Florida and Tennessee. She has worked as a deputy sheriff and state correctional officer. She continued with further training to earn the title of certified instructor and instructor trainer for Medic First Aid.
