Great Oregon Shakeout

Please Participate in This Year’s “Great Oregon Shakeout” Emergency Drill

Thursday, October 15, 2020 at Exactly 10:15 a.m.

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:15 a.m. on 10/15/20—just as they would if hit by a monster earthquake.

As extra incentive, you can win a 3.5 gallon stackable water storage container by taking part. Your neighborhood Emergency Preparedness captains have delivered household instructions, including a HELP/OK sign with a double raffle ticket attached. Fill out your name and phone number, keep the other side of the ticket and on SHAKE OUT DAY place the HELP/OK sign on your garage door with the ticket attached.
                                                            How do YOU participate?
Double check your own emergency supplies of water, food, and other essentials. Then on Thursday, October 15, set your alarm for 10:15AM and when it goes off:

DROP – TO YOUR HANDS AND KNEES, PREFERABLY UNDER SOMETHING STURDY

COVER – THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD & NECK WITH ONE ARM

HOLD ON – IN CASE THE THING YOU ARE UNDER MOVES

                                                            WHAT TO DO NEXT

1. Check on everyone in your home, are they OK?
2. Protect your head, feet & hands from broken glass & fallen debris. Time to check on where your hard hat, work gloves and sturdy shoes are stored!
3. Make sure you know where your gas meter is and how to turn it off, if necessary.
4. Make sure you know where the main water shut off to your home is located and how to turn it off.
5. Place your HELP/OK sign outside with raffle ticket where it can be seen from the   street.
6. Put your fire extinguisher at the end of your driveway.
7. Then shelter in place.

Your Emergency Preparedness Team will come by to see if you participated in the drill by placing your HELP/OK sign. They will collect your raffle ticket from the sign and enter it in the raffle for the Waterbrick prizes.

Neighborhood Watch – Volunteers Needed!

Please note that CHOA is considering creating a Neighborhood Watch program.  Several HOAs in Charbonneau already have them.  Since we have volunteers for the Board and the Emergency Preparedness program, we are seeking volunteers to lead a Neighborhood Watch program if there is enough interest in our community.

 If you are interested in leading or volunteering as a member of a Neighborhood Watch Committee, please let us know by the end of August.

 If interested, please contact Barry Hendrix at hbconsulting@gmail.com or 503-754-0322.

 Thanks!

Karen Siegel – CHOA Landscape Chair

I am happy to let you know that once again we will be spreading bark dust along the street frontages in CHOA.  Rexius will begin the project the week of July 20.  They will be blowing dark hemlock bark in planting areas along the street fronts.

If you  have questions, please contact me or Steve Chinn.

RV Yard entrance blocked for Sewer Project

The Project Manager for the sewer project provided an update that the RV Yard entrance will not be blocked the rest of this week or next week. If there are short, periodic blocks, vehicles will still be able to pass through.

However, from Monday, July 6th through the end of the day on Tuesday, July 7th, the entrance will be blocked.

We will pass along any information we receive as it pertains to this situation.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

thank you ~

Reminder- Feeding of Wild birds or animals except Hummingbirds is Prohibited in CHOA

As you know, we have seen an increase in the number of wild animals in Charbonneau- there have been recent reports and sightings of  Skunks, Raccoons, Rats and Mice.  Also, the local Squirrel population is getting larger.  They like to chew on the sprinkler heads which can destroy them and then we have to spend CHOA funds to replace the sprinkler heads.

In order to try to stem this trend, we want to help eliminate as much of their food sources as possible.  Therefore, we are asking that each CHOA neighbor refrain from feeding any animals and/or birds anywhere in CHOA or around your home except for Hummingbirds.  This includes inside your courtyard also.

In addition, please feed your pets indoors only and don’t leave them unsupervised outside.

Thanks in advance for your help here to make CHOA a safer neighborhood.
