Doug Corder Each table had a spoke person to stand and present summary of table discussion to the entire group. I learned that more than one table and more than 1 Advisory Board had the same basic search or request for information; emergency contact, local support contact, neighborhood contacts with information in one resource location.

The Karen Logsdon leaders of emergency planning here are in regular contact and meetings with the city. The issue of evacuation of the disabled individual living alone, in a catastrophic event, is a challenge for all. Not sure how a city can implement a successful solution, even here in Mary's Woods, without private able-bodied neighbors' active involvement 8/30/2023 MarysWoods independent living community continues its efforts on becoming an official Karen Logsdon LO Neighborhood Association. Currently exploring best ways to accomplish this, including combining with neighborhood groups. Goals for assuring residents are safe and/or rescued in the advent of a major emergency continue to be developed and refined. Communication with the city of LO is ongoing, as well as Fire Department More effort will now be directed towards Prep LO, now that it is trying again to organize and be more effective 8/22/2023 On August 22nd, I worked with Maria to submit a funding application to Lake Oswego Leesie van Roon Rotary for$600. This money would be used to provide 2 gallons of shelf stable water to MOW recipients, along with emergency materials. If funding is granted I will work to find volunteers to deliver. As of 9/5/23 we have not heard if funding is available but anticipate hearing after monthly Rotary Board meeting. 8/24/2023 On August 24th, I attended the Mayor's Roundtable discussion for Emergency Leesie van Roon Preparedness. Leaders from Police, Fire, City Manager departments and other City staff were on hand to explain what the approach and plan is for various emergency situations. Radio communication groups and PREP LO leaders were on hand as well. Reports were made by some Neighborhood Association members about their efforts and needs. I spoke about our concerns, and informed them about 50+work to get information packets out to MOW clientele. LAKE OSWEGO 50+ADVISORY BOARD 2 9/5/2023 In August, Maria Bigelow was able to source emergency materials, including"HELP/OK" Leesie van Roon signs for distribution to MOW clients. These materials are FEMA produced and cover Wildfire, Earthquake and Winter Storm preparedness tips. Yay, Maria! 9/1 1/2023 Viewed a webinar that included presentations from various parts of FEMA. Steven Unger Talk with Jan Castle from PrepLO, had a fairly long phone call about PrepLO past, present and future. Most of PrepLO's activities focused on homeowners rather than apartment dwellers. PrepLO is debating what to do next; current leadership would prefer to retire from running the organization.Talked a bit about the concept having a bi-annual Zoom call to help education and organize all the preparation stake holders.Jan suggested that I speak next with Carole Ockert of the Neighborhood Alliance and Megan Phelan of the City of Lake Oswego. 9/14/2023 September 14th. Attended Emergency Preparedness Fair. Betty Holladay Discussed with PGE rep the fact that city residents can sign up for list held by PGE if they have impairments and would need assistance during long term power outages. Applied for CERT Training and accepted on August 30, 2023 for CERT training this fall. 10/1 6/2023 Continuing the weekly CERT training. I met another woman from Mtn Park who informed Betty Holladay me of her condo's efforts in emergency planning. I'd like to find more CERT volunteers. I finally drafted and sent a letter to the Mountain Park HOA Board President asking about emergency planning for Mountain Park. I did find out from the Fire Dept via our CERT trainer that Mtn Park has 3 boxes of emergency materials allocated to it. 10/17/2023 Sent an email to Lake Oswego Rotary and the gentleman handling grant money for the Leesie van Roon group, Matt Mathias, asking if our request had been approved. I have never had a response to our original proposal/request and wanted to get a firm "No" if nothing else. I have had no response to my last email. I would assume that we have been declined for the $600 request for gallon water bottles. I will look into submitting another request after the first of the new year. Let's consider sending out the HELP signs and emergency materials with the MOW deliveries before Thanksgiving. I can draft an accompanying letter that tells clients what they are receiving if everyone believes it to be helpful. 1 1/8/2023 Completed CERT Training and received my certificate this past Monday on Nov 6th. Betty Holladay Attended Prep LO reorganizational meeting at City Hall led by Jan Castle on 11/2.
