Emergency Preparedness Meeting – June 22, 2016

Location : Oakridge Park Senior Apartment, Community Room
Date:          June 22, 2016
Time:         7:00 – 8:45 pm

Meeting Overview
Play the Triage Game with Waluga NA E.P. coordinators.
Participation allows individuals to see the effects of their decisions from a broader perspective. Triaging/treating patients, managing resources, communication challenges, and directing operations are all part of the “team oriented play process.”
After a major disaster there are three priorities to consider:
1. Life Safety
2. Instant Stabilization
3. Property Conservation
Incident command leaders must learn how to manage distractions and usually are able to handle 3-5 tasks effectively.
Steve Dehart, Facilitator, EMS Coordinator, Lake Oswego Fire Department

Meeting Highlights
Amateur Radio Emergency Service
In the event of a catastrophic disaster when the infrastructure in Lake Oswego (LO) and in Waluga Neighborhood is so severely damaged is the only way we have to communicate with our neighbors and the “outside world” is with two- way radios? Alas! There is another type of radio service available where the operators will be doing double duty to insure that the City has reliable back up communication system. Lake Oswego is fortunate to have an active amateur radio emergency service program. One licensed member is our own E.P. coordinator in Trillium Woods, Chris Battista. He will be sharing with us the basics of the radios, the amateur radio services in LO and explain how this service will be vital to our neighborhood during a disaster.
