Vehicle strikes another pushing it into Building (Photo) - 06/13/18

Clackamas Fire responded today to 12100 SE Stevens Ct. in Happy Valley for a reported vehicle into a building. On arrival they found a non occupied truck that had been struck from the rear and pushed into the structure. It was reported that the driver of the other vehicle mistook the gas for the brake. There was one patient that was exiting the eye clinic at the time and was struck and injured. That individual was quickly extricated and transported to OHSU via ambulance for further care. Clackamas Fire wants to remind everyone that drives to check your surroundings before backing.

Clackamas Fire District #1’s first annual “Vest Up! Always Wear your Life Jacket!” month-long campaign begins June 1, 2018 – July 1, 2018. In collaboration with “Meg’s Moments” for Life Jackets Inc., the life jacket campaign will collect new, adult and children sized life jackets that are U.S. Coast Guard approved.

New, adult and children sized life jackets can be dropped off at any Clackamas Fire District #1 fire station and division offices during the month of June. The collected donations will be given to: “Meg’s Moments” for Life Jackets Inc. to distribute for a free life jacket giveaway at Barton Park, 19009 SE Barton Park Road, Boring, OR, on the Clackamas River on Saturday, July 7, 2018 at 9:00 a.m.

“Meg’s Moments” is a non-profit organization created in honor of Meagan O’Meara Clark, who drowned while rafting on the Clackamas River on July 5, 2013. Meagan was 26-years-old and was not wearing a life jacket at the time of the incident. Each year on the anniversary of O’Meara Clark’s passing, Meg’s Moments for Life Jackets gives away free life jackets at Barton Park in the hopes of saving lives and preventing drownings. Last year, “Meg’s Moments” gave out over 600 life jackets and over 1,600 life jackets in the last four years.

The goals for “Meg’s Moments” are to bring awareness of the importance of wearing a life jacket and to provide water safety information. Their mission statement is, “Turning Tragedy into Triumph, One Life Jacket at a time, Starting with You.” They do not want any other family to go through the loss of losing a loved one from not wearing a life jacket.
