Oakmont preparedness meeting

The Oakmont Emergency Preparedness Committee (OEPC) invites all Oakmont residents to attend its next general meeting on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 2 p.m. at the Berger Center. A panel discussion will take place to inform residents as to the role of the OEPC during a major emergency in Oakmont and what they can expect. There will be time for questions and answers.

OEPC Board Members will explain their individual roles. Dr. Les Holve will talk about his responsibilities as medical director and his recent successful recruitment of new volunteers from the medical field; Pat Barclay will discuss how the three recreational centers will serve as emergency operations centers and first-aid stations during a major emergency; Sue Hattendorf will explain the COPE (Citizens Organized to Prepare for Emergencies) program; Tony Lukes will talk about the importance of having Zone Communicators to gather information from the COPE Leaders at the neighborhood level and relay it to the Zone Coordinator at the Operations Center; and Mike Noble will explain the role of the ham radio operators who will dispatch important information to the proper authority outside of Oakmont.

The mission of the OEPC is, “To care for the ambulatory, administer first aid, and make arrangements to evacuate those more seriously injured”. For information about OEPC, and to volunteer, call Al Thomas, chair, at 538-1319, Dr. Les Holve at 539-6840 or Sue Hattendorf at 539-2543.
