Rain Barrels FREE #AltusOK

Free rain barrels are coming to Altus July 29 at 6 p.m., according to Lloyd Colston, Altus Emergency Management Director.

In a partnership with the Coca-Cola Company in Wichita Falls, 100 of the free barrels will be at the Southwest Technology Center, 711 W Tamarack here.  They will be available to Jackson County residents.

While the rain barrels are free, the quantity is limited, according to Colston.  Area residents are encouraged to bring a pickup and an item to show they reside in the County.  A utility bill, a driving license, or a government document, ex. tax or correspondence will be adequate.

Jackson County remains in a severe drought.  While this is an improvement from previous weeks and extreme to severe drought designations, Altus residents have been encouraged to conserve water for months.

"The partnership with the Coca-Cola Company is greatly appreciated," said Colston.  Area stores such as Atwoods and  Fox's Building Supply carry the barrels but the demand has been great.

The entire community ... businesses, residents, and government ... is in this drought together.  "The cooperation is outstanding,"  said Colston

For more information about Emergency Management, persons may call Wayne Cain, Jackson County Emergency Management at 580.482.0229 while Colston may be called using the Call Me form located at the right..

NRT/CDC PROTECT EMERGENCY WORKERS #OKfire #AltusOK

Dear Emergency Management Directors,

We would like to introduce the U.S. National Response Team (NRT) Emergency Responders Health Monitoring and Surveillance (ERHMS) system, coordinated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). We are sending this to you because we know you share our mission to protect American workers. The ERHMS system provides guidelines for protecting emergency responders involved in various types of emergencies and settings and can be used by anyone involved with the deployment and protection of emergency workers.

The attached Portable Document Format (PDF) flyer provides information pertaining to ERHMS and FREE training courses that are now available online. ERHMS training courses include the following:

·         Emergency Responder Health Monitoring and Surveillance (ERHMS) System

o   Provides the necessary tools for implementing health monitoring and surveillance of emergency response workers.
o   Outlines important procedures for pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment.
o   Offers continuing education credits for those who complete the course. Credits include: CEU/CE; CHES; CME; CNE Contact Hours; Pharmacist Contact Hours; and AAVSB/RACE.
o   All emergency response coordinators are encouraged to take this course.

·         Emergency Responder Health Monitoring and Surveillance (ERHMS) System: Leadership Training

o   Introduces the ERHMS system to leaders in organizations responsible for planning and executing incident response activities.
o   Optimizes the health and safety of response, remediation, recovery, and volunteer workers.
o   The intended audience includes local, regional, state, tribal, and federal personnel who are responsible for the occupational safety and health of responders.
o   Offers 0.1 continuing education units for completing the course. 

We hope that you take advantage of the valuable information provided and participate in the training course offerings. We encourage you to visit the ERHMS website at: http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/erhms/.

Please pass this information on to others you know aiding in emergency preparedness and response.

Thank you for your service.

Sincerely,
Michelle Martin
