Wildfires - Home Safety
Presented by Eric Perkins, Protection Unit Forester, Forest Grove District
Eric will speak about the Scoggins Creek Fire and will show a slideshow about this serious fire. Eric supervises the seasonal fire crews, dispatcher, and three Stewardship Foresters. The Stewardship Foresters help private landowners and enforce Oregon’s Forest Practice Laws. Eric will also talk about home defensibility and give ideas and techniques on how to make your home more fire safe with regards to wildfires. The Scoggins Creek Fire was close to our CPO 15 area; we can all learn how to stay safer.
Texting While Driving
Presented by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office
Learn some of the latest scientific findings on the impact that technology has on attention and focus. We are all tempted to answer that phone or return a message while driving. Deputy Christensen with the Sheriff’s Office will present compelling reasons why we just cannot take this risk.
