CPO 15 Meeting

Safety is on the agenda! Presentations from Forest Grove District Protection Unit on how to keep your home safe from wildfires and the Sheriff's Office on texting while driving.

AGENDA

. . .

 

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.

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 Wandering. thedianerehnshow.org/audio/#/shows2014-12-26/matt_richtel_a_deadly_wandering_rebroadcast/00.00
