News Release from: Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office
CCSO: *UPDATE* SEARCH FOR LOST SKIER NEAR MIRROR LAKE
Posted: March 31st, 2013 9:37 PM

Update

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is sad to report at approximately 7:15 pm the body of a male skier believed to be the subject we have been looking for was located. The subject was found submerged in a creek near Highway 26 west of the Ski Bowl Resort.

The Medical Examiner's Office will conduct a death investigation. All inquires regarding their investigation and the subject's identity will be directed to their office. The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office will assist with the investigation and the Sheriff's Office Dive Team will be assisting with the recovery effort.

Searchers learned that a group of experienced skiers left the boundary of Ski Bowl's west side last night. The group gathered at a hut that is just outside the boundary. Investigators learned from a member of the group that alcohol was being consumed and the subject appeared intoxicated.

The subject decided to head down the mountain alone but became disorientated when he left. He had been in contact with a member of the group via cell phone but was still unable to find his way.


*****


On March 31, 2013 at approximately 11:00 am, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office was contacted regarding a lost male on Mt Hood, Oregon. Search and Rescue Coordinators from the Sheriff's Office are currently organizing search efforts for the 23 year-old male.

He was last seen yesterday, March 30th at approximately 9:00 pm near Mirror Lake. Prior to this, the subject had left the group he was with to ski down the mountain. The group made plans to meet up later but the subject did not show up.

The subject was last seen by campers at Mirror Lake but they had only been in contact with him from across the lake. The campers attempted to direct him to their location but he never arrived.

The subject was not prepared to stay overnight to our knowledge and had been equipped for skiing. It is believed he had been consuming alcohol prior to setting off alone.

At this point Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, Mountain Wave Search and Rescue, American Medical Response Reach and Treat Team and the Oregon National Guard equipped with a Helicopter are currently searching the area. The plan is for the search to continue through the night.

The deputies have not been in direct contact with the subject's family so his name will not be released at this time. If media intends to go to the area please contact the public information officer directly.

Vacant Beaverton home heavily damaged by fire

News Release from: Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue
VACANT BEAVERTON HOME HEAVILY DAMAGED BY FIRE

TVF&R firefighters were dispatched at 7:28 PM to reports of black smoke coming from a home at 2000 McCamley Road in Beaverton. The first arriving crew reported heavy fire coming from several sides of the house. An immediate challenge was difficult access due to the flag lot configuration of the property. Additional crews stretched hose lines through the yards of adjacent homes in order to access all sides of the structure.

While there were reports that the house was vacant, firefighters initiated a search to be certain. In addition to heavy black smoke, the search was complicated by evidence of construction activity, including areas where the flooring had been removed with lose plywood left in its place. The home has a daylight basement beneath the construction area, so there were safety concerns. Despite this, the search was completed and no one was found.

With the closest home just 25 feet away, neighbors were very concerned about the blaze spreading. Quick action by firefighters contained the fire and it was fully controlled in 20 minutes. There were no injuries.

The home is estimated at 2500 square feet and is heavily damaged. The fire investigation process will begin later this evening; there is no information about a possible cause at this time.

The truck's driver, MOWAFAK ALI, age 39, from SE Portland, was not injured. He was cited by OSP for Careless Driving.

Update

On March 30, 2013 at 10:02 am, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office's rescue efforts were successful in locating Mary Owen. Ms. Owen was spotted by a helicopter flown by the Oregon National Guard that joined the search this morning. Ms. Owen was hoisted into the helicopter and due to her injuries she was taken directly to Emmanuel Hospital in Portland, OR. Ms. Owen was alert but had frostbite and a possible fratured ankle.

Ms. Owen's family had just arrived at the command post after the news was confirmed she had been located. The friends and family were updated on what took place and her condition before leaving for the hospital. They were able to meet with and speak with some of the searchers and thank them for their help.

The search and rescue teams involved in this rescue effort were Mountain Wave Search and Rescue, Portland Mountain Rescue, Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, Eugene Mountain Rescue, Corvallis Mountain Rescue, Hood River Crag Rats, American Medical Response, Hood River County Sheriff's Office, Oregon National Guard and US Air Force Pararescue Specialist. Most of these organizations are non-profit and are staffed with volunteers. Timberline Ski Resort also assisted with the efforts of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

This situation had a happy ending and we would like to remind people when enjoying the outdoors, it is always a good idea to let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return.

*******


Update

The search for Mary Owen will continue in the morning. Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Coordinators are currently making plans and arrangements for trained search and rescue teams from around the area to search first thing in the morning. Currently the search teams are being brought down from the mountain before dark for their safety.

Some of the search teams planned for tomorrow include Portland Mountain Rescue, Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, Hood River Crag Rats, Corvallis Mountain Rescue, Lane Mountain Rescue, US Air Force Pararescue Specialists and a helicopter from the Oregon National Guard. The teams will be organized in a coordinated effort to find Mary Owen or clues to where she may be.

We would also like to emphasize we are not requesting help from the general public for this search. This is due to the many hazards associated with this type of environment such as avalanches. The teams responding are trained professionals.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who may have seen Ms. Owen since Saturday to please call the Sheriff's Office non-emergency phone number at 503-655-8211 with the information. Additionally, you may email Sergeant Sean Collinson directly at seancol@co.clackamas.or.us. Information from the public will be critical in assisting the Sheriff's Office with finding Ms. Owen.

The Public Information Officer will be available in the morning near the staging area at Timberline Lodge after the morning briefing scheduled for 6:00 am.

******

Please reference Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Case #13-9578.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is requesting the public's assistance with locating a missing female believed to be hiking somewhere on Mt. Hood.

On Thursday, March 28th, 2013, at about 8:15 pm the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received a call about a missing female. The Newberg Police Department requested the Sheriff's Office assistance with locating Mary Owen, 23 years old. Ms. Owen was last heard from on Sunday night when she sent an email to a friend stating she was going hiking on Mt. Hood.

At about 9:00 pm, the manager at Timberline Lodge checked the parking lot at the request of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and found her vehicle, a white 1998 Toyota 4-Runner parked in the lot. Sheriff's Office Deputies checked the vehicle and saw evidence that it had been sitting at that location for some time.

A subsequent investigation has led the Sheriff's Office to believe that Ms. Owen may have gone off by hiking by herself. Ms. Owen's backpack is still in her vehicle so she may be short on supplies. She is an experienced hiker who has in the past hiked the Pacific Coast Trail from Mexico to Canada.

Ms. Owen is believed to have been wearing the green "beanie" style hat as seen in the attached image. The second attachment shows Ms. Owen with her backpack. The final attached file is a collage of pictures of Ms. Owen. Other than the mentioned hat, it is not known what clothing Ms. Owen may have been wearing.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who may have seen Ms. Owen since Saturday to please call the Sheriff's Office non-emergency phone number at 503-655-8211 with the information. Additionally, you may email Sergeant Sean Collinson directly at seancol@co.clackamas.or.us.

Search and Rescue Crews are currently organizing a search but information from the public will be critical in assisting the Sheriff's Office with finding Ms. Owen.

Please reference Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Case #13-9578.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is requesting the public's assistance with locating a missing female believed to be hiking somewhere on Mt. Hood.

On Thursday, March 28th, 2013, at about 8:15 pm the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received a call about a missing female. The Newberg Police Department requested the Sheriff's Office assistance with locating Mary Owen, 23 years old. Ms. Owen was last heard from on Sunday night when she sent an email to a friend stating she was going hiking on Mt. Hood.

At about 9:00 pm, the manager at Timberline Lodge checked the parking lot at the request of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office and found her vehicle, a white 1998 Toyota 4-Runner parked in the lot. Sheriff's Office Deputies checked the vehicle and saw evidence that it had been sitting at that location for some time.

A subsequent investigation has led the Sheriff's Office to believe that Ms. Owen may have gone off by hiking by herself. Ms. Owen's backpack is still in her vehicle so she may be short on supplies. She is an experienced hiker who has in the past hiked the Pacific Coast Trail from Mexico to Canada.

Ms. Owen is believed to have been wearing the green "beanie" style hat as seen in the attached image. The second attachment shows Ms. Owen with her backpack. The final attached file is a collage of pictures of Ms. Owen. Other than the mentioned hat, it is not known what clothing Ms. Owen may have been wearing.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who may have seen Ms. Owen since Saturday to please call the Sheriff's Office non-emergency phone number at 503-655-8211 with the information. Additionally, you may email Sergeant Sean Collinson directly at seancol@co.clackamas.or.us.

Search and Rescue Crews are currently organizing a search but information from the public will be critical in assisting the Sheriff's Office with finding Ms. Owen.

Please reference Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Case #13-9578.

Hillsboro Man Injured in Kitchen Fire

News Release from: Hillsboro Fire and Rescue
HILLSBORO MAN INJURED IN KITCHEN FIRE
Posted: March 29th, 2013 3:14 PM

One man received significant burn injuries in a kitchen fire this morning in Hillsboro. Just before 10:30am Hillsboro Fire & Rescue was dispatched by Washington County 9-1-1 to a commercial fire at the Lions Gate Apartments in Hillsboro. When firefighters from Hillsboro Fire & Rescue arrived they found an extinguished kitchen fire in one of the apartments and a resident with burn injuries. The resident, a male in his 30's was transported by Metro West Ambulance for treatment.

Hillsboro fire investigator John Rinier determined that the fire was caused by a pot of cooking oil left unattended on the stove. As the flaming pot was being moved from the stove, the oil spilled on the floor and nearby cabinets catching them on fire. The burns to the resident were caused by contact with the burning oil. The injured man's wife used their fire extinguisher to put out the fire on the floor and cabinets. Damage to the kitchen is estimated at $5,000.


Hillsboro Fire & Rescue reminds everyone that most residential fires start in the kitchen. Unattended cooking is the most frequent cause of those fires.
When cooking on the stove top; avoid distractions, stay in the kitchen and stand by your pan.
If a pot on the stove does catch on fire, covering the pan with a lid is the safest way to put it out.

Three month trial of more efficient SUV medical rescue response begins Monday in Vancouver, WA

News Release from: City of Vancouver
THREE MONTH TRIAL OF MORE EFFICIENT SUV MEDICAL RESCUE RESPONSE BEGINS MONDAY IN VANCOUVER, WA
Posted: March 29th, 2013 2:19 PM
Photo/sound file: http://www.flashalertnewswire.net/images/news/2013-03/144/62957/Fire_SUV.jpg (Vancouver Fire's)

MEDIA PHOTO OPPORTUNITY: A formal rollout of the innovative new program will be held at Fire Station 5 (7110 NE 63rd Street) at 1 p.m. on Monday April 1.


Vancouver Fire Department (VFD) will begin to pilot an innovative new response to medical calls on April 1. The three month trial includes the use of more efficient SUV's staffed by a Paramedic and an Emergency Medical Technician in response to lower priority medical calls instead of a fire truck and full crew.

Fire Chief Joe Molina worked collaboratively with firefighter's union leadership and fire department staff to develop the new pilot project based on recommendations from a citizen committee report published last fall.

"The Citizen Resource Team took six months to review Fire and EMS operations and put a lot of work and thought into their recommendations for possible changes to how we operate," Molina said. "At least four of the recommendations addressed our medical response mission and we wanted to pilot some of the ideas as quickly as possible."

Recommended changes included stopping fire department response to non-emergency calls, utilizing smaller vehicles to respond to low priority medical calls, and reevaluating the effectiveness of staffing and scheduling options that better match the emergency call load.

"This SUV pilot - designated Rescue One and Rescue Two - will change how we deliver services and allow us to implement all four recommendations of the community panel. At the same time, we will carefully evaluate the impact of this test pilot on all of our emergency services" Molina said. "A goal is to keep fire engines available for life-threatening emergencies and fires. With this change, we think we can improve our response times to those time-critical events," Molina said.

VFD responds to more than 20,000 calls a year - well over half of those calls are requests for medical assistance. "People call us for everything from a cardiac arrest to minor medical problems," said Jay Getsfrid, EMS Officer. "We use a dispatch system that prioritizes the calls but we traditionally sent the same equipment, no matter what the problem - a fire truck's larger crew - because that was all that was available. The smaller SUV vehicle adds a new tool."

Fire Department staff worked with the county's Medical Program Director, Lynn Wittwer, M.D., to evaluate the seriousness of each call type and identify events that could be included in the trial or even handled by an ambulance without a fire department response. "We looked at each call type individually and assessed the frequency of interventions being required or of a person needing to be transported with lights and sirens to the hospital," Getsfrid explained. "We identified calls that were not life threatening and that could be handled differently."

"We are working hand in hand with our Medical Director and the ambulance company to mesh resources, share data, and evaluate whether the program is accomplishing its purpose or if something needs to be adjusted," Molina said. The program will be monitored daily and data will be evaluated weekly.

Chief Molina said that he hopes this trial will lead to a more effective and efficient response for high and low priority calls. "We are a committed member of the emergency service community and recognize our role in improving the system. We are approaching this carefully, but feel like we have an opportunity to fundamentally change the way we respond to calls within our service area," Molina said.

The new Rescue units will be in service ten hours a day during peak hours of call load, four days a week, and will be mobile during these hours throughout the City of Vancouver and Fire District 5.

The Fire and EMS reassessment is one of a series of departmental reengineering processes underway at the City of Vancouver under City Manager Eric Holmes.

Suspicious powder received at Two Rivers Correctional Institution determined not hazardous

News Release from: Oregon Dept. of Corrections
SUSPICIOUS POWDER RECEIVED AT TWO RIVERS CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION DETERMINED NOT HAZARDOUS
Posted: March 29th, 2013 1:35 PM

Emergency responders determined that a white powdery substance received Friday morning in an envelope at the Two Rivers Correctional Institution (TRCI) mail room was not hazardous. Oregon State Police (OSP) is investigating to determine if the envelope and powder content is associated with any crime.

On March 29, 2013, at approximately 10:30 a.m., the TRCI mail room reported receiving the envelope with the unknown substance. The mail room area was secured and the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal's Hazardous Materials Unit and the Umatilla Fire Department responded to evaluate the powder for any hazardous substances. No employees reported any adverse reactions.

The mail room is located inside the administration building, where 18 to 20 staff members normally work each day. Four staff members were in the mail room at the time the substance was found. The institution is operating as normal.

TRCI is a medium and minimum security facility in Umatilla that houses approximately 1,800 men in custody. It provides a range of correctional services and programs, including education, treatment programs, pre-release and transitional services, and work opportunities. TRCI opened in March 2000.

On Thursday, March 28th, 2013, at about 8:15 pm the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received a call about a missing female.

Tsunami Debris Dilemma: Invasive Species Coming From Afar with Samuel Chan, Ph.D, Oregon State University
There are plenty of invasive species that already have a foot-hold in Oregon - Himalayan blackberries, Scotch broom, and zebra mussels to name a few - but Oregon's coastal communities are facing an unexpected threat from afar. The devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March 2011 not only damaged the immediate surroundings but also released more than five million tons of debris, approximately 30% (~1.5 million tons) of which is likely to still be afloat. The first remnants have already arrived: a large floating dock, torn loose by the tsunami from the fishing port of Misawa, Japan, appeared on Agate beach in Newport on June 5, 2012 after a 15-month journey on the Pacific Ocean currents.

Sex in Play: From Dolls to Sports, Sexualized Culture Affects Youth with Elizabeth Daniels and Aurora Sherman, assistant professors of psychology at OSU-Bend and OSU-Corvallis

Sex may sell everything from magazines to perfume, but the effects of pervasive sexuality in marketing and consumer products go far beyond the cash register. In 2007, the American Psychological Association released a report -- APA Report on the Sexualization of Girls -- on the impacts of media displays of women as sexual objects. Aurora Sherman and Elizabeth Daniels speak about their research in the consequences of sexualization for child development. They suggest that it takes media savvy and strong role models to promote healthy development in the face of what the APA calls "the massive exposure to portrayals that sexualize women and girls and teach girls that women are sexual objects."

GRESHAM, Ore. - The City invites residents to join in April activities to celebrate National Arbor Day, Gresham's fifth year as a designated Tree City USA community, and our new official City tree, the Hogan cedar.

Educational tree tags will be displayed throughout the city April 7 through 26 as part of a campaign to demonstrate the value of urban trees. The trees will be tagged with the dollar amount it gives back to the community in environmental and socio-economic benefits over the next 15 years. Watch for tagged trees in public spaces, including historic downtown, Gresham, City Hall and at the Gresham Post Office.

The first of two national Arbor Day events is on Wednesday, April 10, 1:30 p.m. at Hogan Cedars Elementary School, 17770 S.E. Fleming Ave. The event will include a Hogan cedar planting event and the reading the Arbor Day Proclamation.

In recognition of the City's 108-year history and new official City tree, we're planting 108 Hogan cedars at an Arbor Day event on April 26, 10:00 a.m. at Gresham Butte Saddle Trail with volunteers from the Youth Conservation Crew at Mt. Hood Community College. The event will also include a brief ceremony to unveil a Hogan Cedar Interpretive Panel.
