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.”

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.

 

To identify problems before they happen, the board is working with our insurance agent and a local plumber to offer optionalinspections of our plumbing systems.  Come to an informational meeting and enjoy a nice glass of wine and a variety of meats and cheeses on Wednesday, June 20th at 6:30 pm at Rec Hall C, on Lafayette Dr.

Check Your Disaster Preparedness Kit for a possible leak of Waterless gel

At our Annual meeting on Monday 4/24, Eric Hoem and Mike Tewell set up a great display of Earthquake information and disaster supplies.  Eric was showing his Quake-Ready Kit to a person interested and found that one of the packets had been leaking.  The small bottles of antiseptic hand cleaner had leaked into the zip bag it was in and destroyed several components, including the First Aid booklet, waterproof matches, and packaged hand wipes, and covering the rest with hand cleaner goo.
Eric contacted Lee Montalvo, the supplier, and he is mailing replacement items to Eric for his kit.  Because of this discovery Eric thought any folks who have purchased a Quake-Ready Kit should think about checking the contents of their kits.  For anyone finding a problem the contact information for the Quake-Ready kit is: Lee Montalvo, 360-791-7746 and lee@quakereadykit.com.
