 Dangers of Texting While Driving

A Washington County Sheriff’s Office Deputy and a Program Educator from the Department of Land Use and Transportation presented compelling reasons why we just cannot take this risk.

CPO 15 learned 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. If you want to know more evidence, listen to a rebroadcast of a Diane Rehms Show from December 26, 2014, with an interview by Matt Richtel who wrote A Deadly Wanderingthedianerehnshow.org/audio/#/shows2014-12-26/matt_richtel_a_deadly_wandering_rebroadcast/00.00

Earthquake Preparedness - Quake Up!
Two historic disasters hold lessons for the Pacific Northwest as we get ready for the coming Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake. Sig Unander tells the dramatic stories of how San Francisco was destroyed in 1906 and Tokyo survived the huge 2011 episode in Japan. What can Oregon learn to help us face the threat here? Unander, an author and filmmaker, lives in Cornelius.

CPO leaders Peggy Harris and Stan Houseman will join Unander to preview the upcoming countywide Quake Up! Earthquake Preparedness Fair on Saturday, October 10th from 9 am-1:30 pm in downtown Hillsboro at the Saturday Farmers’ Market. This family-friendly, free event will help you take simple steps to prepare. Government agencies, the American Red Cross, and the CPO Program are collaborating to provide hands-on exhibits, informational tools, presentations, and a drawing for preparedness giveaways.
