Clackamas Fire gets ready to 'ShakeOut' - 10/16/19

OREGON CITY, Ore. – On Thursday, Oct. 17, 2019 at 10:17 a.m., Clackamas Fire will partner with the Alliance Charter Academy to practice what to do in the event of an earthquake. The training, as part of the statewide “Great Oregon ShakeOut” effort, will focus on the steps students and staff can take in the initial moments of an earthquake.

The knowledge of what to do during an earthquake is equally as important as practicing the process of reuniting parents and students in the hours that follow. Thursday’s drill will take the additional steps to practice this reunification process, as if it were real.  Clackamas Fire’s Emergency Management Team has coordinated this exercise to emphasize the importance of knowing what to do and what steps to take, should an earthquake occur in our region.

Help us spread the word about the importance of knowing what to do if an earthquake occurs by taking part in the Great Oregon ShakeOut. More information and resources to educate your family and friends can be found at www.shakeout.org.

This exercise is closed to the public, but members of the media are invited to attend.

WHEN: Oct. 17, 2019 at 10:17-11:00 a.m.

WHERE: Alliance Charter Academy

16075 Front Ave.

Oregon City, OR 97045

MEDIA OPPORTUNITY: Clackamas Fire reunites cardiac arrest survivors and rescuers (Photo) - 10/04/19

Clackamas Fire District #1 will hold its eighth Chain of Survival Celebration and challenge coin presentation on Monday, Oct. 7, 2019 at Providence Willamette Falls Community Center (519 15th St., Oregon City, OR 97045) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The celebration will honor 13 cardiac arrest survivors and recognize the individuals involved in saving their lives. The phrase “chain of survival” was coined to describe a series of events that if strung together and performed in a timely manner, greatly improves the chances of survival from sudden cardiac arrest in an out of hospital setting.

A cardiac arrest save is made possible by identifying a medical emergency, taking immediate action by calling 9-1-1, a bystander administers Hands-Only CPR, defibrillation with an AED (if available), advanced life support by first responders, post cardiac arrest care by the hospital, and as a result - the ‘chain’ is unbroken.

The survivors have been given a second chance at life, thanks in part to the quick and selfless actions of bystanders, their loved ones, and trained professionals. The celebration is an opportunity to reunite survivors with their rescuers, demonstrate the importance in how the steps in the chain increases survival, and to celebrate life.

The media is invited to attend. To set up interviews with survivors at the event, please contact Public Information Officer Capt. Brandon Paxton.
