CHOA to participate in the Great Shakeout Drill Thursday October 17th

On Thursday, 10/17, at 10:17AM, CHOA and all of Charbonneau will be participating in the Great Oregon ShakeOut drill!  Why is it important to do a Drop, Cover, and Hold On drill? The Oregon Office of Emergency Management reminds us: “To react quickly you must practice often. You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake, before strong shaking knocks you down–or drops something on you. Practicing helps you be ready to respond.

Homeowner Associations participating in the drill will hand out free raffle tickets to residents taking part! Each HOA will have prizes to award!   REMEMBER: In any disaster, your most immediate source of help are the people living around you!   Additional information is available in the clubhouse.

Your CHOA Emergency Preparedness Team will be bringing around materials for our participation and we hope EVERYONE will be involved!

Reminder- September is Emergency Preparedness Month


Please don’t throw away your copy of the September Boones Ferry Messenger from the City of Wilsonville.  All of page 5 contains important information from FEMA and other sources about getting your home ready for an emergency.  Everything in those articles complements what your own CHOA Emergency Preparedness Team is developing to help in the event of an emergency that leaves Charbonneau isolated for a day or more.  Doing some preparation will ready us for the state-wide practice drill, The Great Oregon Shakeout, which takes place October 17, 2019, at 10-17 in the morning.  Let’s all “be prepared.”    

Please note new additions to CHOA Emergency Preparedness Team
