More information about earthquake activity can be found on the apps “QuakeFeed,” or  “QuakeWatch.

 

Please do not feed the wildlife

Please do not feed any of the wildlife we have here in Charbonneau.  This includes:

Geese, Ducks, Squirrels, Chipmunks, Deer, Coyotes, Skunks and any other wild animal you might come across in our neighborhood.

Wild animals that are fed by humans can lose their fear of people and become aggressive when they don’t get food as expected.

While it is fun to watch the wildlife in our neighborhood, please remember they are wild and designed to find their own food.  So please enjoy them but don’t feed them!

CPR and AED Training available to CHOA members

Please note that representatives from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue provided basic CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and use of our new AED (Automated External Defibrillator) on August 30 located in Rec Hall C.  10 of your neighbors attended.  We would like to offer this class again if there is an interest from other neighbors.

Also- please note that there is an app- PulsePoint that lists all of the AEDs in Oregon.  Please download so you always know where there nearest AED is located.

Here is a basic overview of the training for CPR:

Before Giving CPR
1  Check the scene and the person. Check to make sure the scene is safe, tap the person on the shoulder to see if they’re OK, and look for signs of rhythmic, normal breathing.
2  Call 911 for assistance. If there’s no response from the victim when asked if he or she is OK, call 911, or ask a bystander to call for help.

3  Begin compressions. If the person is unresponsive, perform hands-only CPR.

How to Perform Hands-Only CPR
1  Kneel beside the person who needs help.
2  Place the heel of one hand on the center of the chest.
3  Place the heel of the other hand on top of the first
hand, then lace your fingers together.
4  Position your body so that your shoulders are directly over your hands, and keep your arms straight.
5  Push hard, push fast. Use your body weight to help you administer compressions that are at least 2 inches deep and delivered at a rate of at least 100 compressions per minute. (Just be sure to let chest rise completely between compressions.)
6  Keep pushing. Continue hands-only CPR until you see obvious signs of life, like breathing, another trained responder or EMS professional can take over, you’re too exhausted to continue, an AED becomes available, or the scene becomes unsafe.

Here you can see your neighbors practicing CPR and using the AED. The AED walks you through the process. All you have to do is follow its directions.

Please let us know if you would like training in CPR and the use of the AED and we will schedule additional training sessions.

New Poolside Chair Lift in Charbonneau

Please see note below from the Charbonneau Country Club regarding the new Poolside Chair Lift:

“Charbonneau County Club (CCC) recently installed a poolside motorized chair lift at the swimming pool located on the corner of French Prairie Road  and Arbor Lake Drive near the east entrance to Charbonneau.  This was in response to a request from a homeowner whose granddaughter uses a wheelchair.    As far as CCC knows, this is the only pool in Charbonneau, with the exception of SpringRidge.

CCC would like to offer the use of this pool to those residents with need who would enjoy the benefit of thi amenity.  If you have a homeowner who cannot use your neighborhood pool because a disability requires a motorized pool lift, please contact CCC office and we will make arrangements for use of the pool at the east entrance.

Please have interested residents contact Susie at Susie@charbonneaucountryclub.com for more information.

Thank you,

Tony Holt, CCC President”

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.”
