OCTOBER 22 FALL CERT CLASS

  • Do you want to learn how to take care of you and your family in an emergency? Florence CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) has several openings for its upcoming fall class starting Monday, October 22, 2007 at 6:00 p.m. at the Siuslaw Valley Fire Station (26th & Hwy 101). There are a total of six sessions in the training series. Pre-registration is required for the class with a $25.00 registration fee. You can sign-up at the main Florence Fire Station Monday-Friday 9-5. If you have any questions, please call Anne Machalek at 902-8008. The class is well worth your time and effort. It will better educate and prepare you in case of a disaster such as an earthquake, tsunami, wind storm or other such event.

OCTOBER 26 GREENTREES IS HOSTING A TSUNAMI EVACUATION EXERCISE

  • This exercise will be coordinated with the 11:00 AM test of the emergency siren test which is the last Friday of October. The scenario for this drill will be to call the Florence Police Chief at the time of the sirens requesting assistance from patrol cars to both regulate traffic on Rhododendron Drive and to pass through the West side of Greentrees to announce the need to evacuate to the Recreation Hall on the East side of Rhododendron. Following the evacuation CERT members would enter the West side doing a sweep for victims or residents unable to evacuate without assistance. They would then call for transport to assist with these evacuations. The exercise would be followed by a free soup and chili lunch for everyone taking part in the evacuation drill. If you, as a CERT volunteer, would like to participate in this exercise, please call or email Ken Stone at 997-9481 or Email at krstone@yahoo.com
