CHOA now has an AED (automated external defibrillator) at Pool C on Lafayette Dr.

 

Please note that CHOA now has an AED (automated external defibrillator) at Pool C located on Lafayette Dr  right off the Red Course #5 Fairway.  You should be able to use your Pool key to enter the pool area

What is an AED?

According to the Red Cross website:

“An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly. If not treated within minutes, it quickly leads to death. Most SCAs result from ventricular fibrillation (VF). VF is a rapid and unsynchronized heart rhythm that originates in the heart’s lower chambers (the ventricles). The heart must be “defibrillated” quickly, because a victim’s chance of surviving drops by seven to 10 percent for every minute a normal heartbeat isn’t restored.

Why are AEDs important?

AEDs make it possible for more people to respond to a medical emergency where defibrillation is required. Because AEDs are portable, they can be used by nonmedical people (lay-rescuers). They can be made part of emergency response programs that also include rapid use of 9-1-1 and prompt delivery of cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). All three of these activities are vital to improving survival from SCA.

 How does an AED work?

A built-in computer checks a victim’s heart rhythm through adhesive electrodes. The computer calculates whether defibrillation is needed. If it is, a recorded voice prompts the rescuer to press the shock button on the AED. This shock momentarily stuns the heart and stops all activity. It gives the heart the chance to resume beating effectively. Audible prompts guide the user through the process. AEDs advise a shock only for ventricular fibrillation or another life-threatening condition called pulseless ventricular tachycardia.

Who can use an AED?

Non-medical personnel such as police, fire service personnel, flight attendants, security guards and other lay rescuers who have been trained in CPR can use AEDs. Although formal training in the use of an AED is not required, it is recommended to help the rescuer increase their comfort and level of confidence. However, AEDs are intended for use by the general public. Most AEDs use audible voice prompts to guide the user through the process.

Are AEDs safe to use?

AEDs are safe to use by anyone.”

If there is a tree on your property that you would like cut down or trimmed, let Steve Chinn know

Steve asked me to let everyone know that CTS is going to be in the neighborhood next Friday, June 23rd.  CTS is the company that does a lot of the tree removal for us in Charbonneau.

Some of you have already asked Steve about a tree on your property already, if you did Steve will make sure that CTS gets over to your place and gives you a bid.  If the bid sounds good to you, CTS will let you know when they will get by to cut/trim your tree.  Once they have completed all jobs in the neighborhood, CTS will send one bill to Ann Higgins and then Ann will mail you a bill for the price that you agreed to pay for your tree/trees.

If you have a tree on your property that you would like to have trimmed or cut down, and you havenot told anyone, please let Steve know ASAP, he will add you to the list of homes so that CTS can come to your place to give you a bid.   CTS will then send the bid they quoted to you to Ann, (same as the paragraph above) and Ann will mail you a bill after all work by CTS has been done.

This is just an offer from CTS to hopefully save you some money, if you don’t like their bid, of course you can tell them no.

 

Please direct any Questions to Steve, by email or phone =  Office: 503-682-0234 ,Email: schinno@gmail.com

Save the Date: June 20th 6:30 Preventive Water Damage Program Presentation

Water damage claims are the most frequent home insurance claim in Charbonneau.  Many can be avoided.  Here are some examples of recent water damage that owners had to deal with:

 

  1. Ice maker water line burst during the night.  The next morning the owners’ new hardwood floors were all buckled and completely destroyed.  It was a nightmare for the owner to get a good contractor to come out and replace her floors and cost many thousands of dollars.

 

  1. The drain hose on a washing machine failed and an entire load of bleach water dumped onto the floor destroying the floor.

 

  1. A hot water tank located in the attic failed and water damaged the ceiling and leaked onto and damaged beautiful antique furniture.

Fairway Drive Work Delayed one week (City of Wilsonville replacement of sewers and storm drains)

You probably already guessed …. The Fairway Dr/Boones Bend Rd has been delayed a week.  I spoke with Zachary (Civil Engineer for the project) today and he stated that they are having a meeting on Thursday and there will more complete information on Friday on the Website http://www.ci.wilsonville.or.us/651/Charbonneau-High-Priority-Utility-Repair  New Start date Monday April 24th

 

Some of you may have received  letters from the city describing  the next area of Charbonneau to be included in the sewer, water and storm drain projects. This April through August the city will be replacing sewers and some storm drains. The project which effects CHOA will be starting on Boones Bend at its first intersection with French Prairie down to Fairway, then up Fairway to 8065 SW Fairway Dr.

Since Boones Bend and Fairway Dr are well traveled roads I thought it would be good to let everyone know about the coming construction.

Construction will start April 17th, there will  likely be no access to Fairway Dr from the French Prairie 1st entrance into Charbonneau, think about taking the 2nd entrance to Charbonneau if you need to visit anyone on Fairway Dr, especially between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm from April 17th April 24th through August 2017.

There may be a shortage of guest parking during the day on some of Fairway Dr and Boones Bend as those who live on Fairway may need to use the guest parking areas during construction.
