Special Reunion for Lebanon Family and Firefighters (Photo)

SPECIAL REUNION FOR LEBANON FAMILY AND FIREFIGHTERS (PHOTO)


News Release from Lebanon Fire District
Posted on FlashAlert: October 15th, 2018 2:03 PM
Downloadable file: Captions notes in press release.

The members of Lebanon Fire District’s C-Shift had a very special visit on Friday afternoon. Cidni O’Brien, 12, was playing in a soccer game at Lebanon’s Cheadle Lake Park on Saturday April 21st when she began to feel sick. After scoring a goal she told her step-father Tim Faulconer, who was officiating the game, that she wasn’t feeling well. Tim recommended she go see her coach, who took her out of the game to rest.

What followed was a traumatic experience for Cidni, her family, and the fans gathered at the game. Cidni sat down on the sideline and then rolled over onto the ground, unresponsive. Bystanders didn’t know if at the time, but Cidni was suffering a cardiac arrest which had stopped her heart. Cidni’s mother Nikki is a registered nurse at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital, and as she sat across the field she watched her daughter slump to the ground. As the coach called out for help, Nikki Faulconer raced across the field to assess her daughter who was unconscious, not breathing, and had no pulse. Nikki immediately began CPR while bystanders called 911.

Firefighters and paramedics from the Lebanon Fire District were in house at Station 34, located less than a quarter mile from the soccer fields. They were dispatched at 2:36 pm and arrived on scene in just 37 seconds. Crews then had to navigate through dozens of soccer players and fans to find the actual scene of the emergency. Once with Cidni, medics quickly initiated Advanced Life Support care which included intravenous access, defibrillation, and cardiac monitoring. Medics also performed a Rapid Sequence Intubation, in which a patient is chemically paralyzed for the placement of an endotracheal tube which allowed responders to breathe for Cidni.

Cidni was transported to Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital where she was further stabilized before being flown to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland two hours later. Following the incident, the grim reality of the situation began to set in on the fire and EMS crews. “Almost every responder on that call was a parent.” noted LFD Division Chief Jason Bolen. “Serious pediatric calls normally involve a heightened level of stress, and in this case Cidni was very close in age to a number of our own kids which really hits home once the call is over.” First responders went through a Critical Incident Stress Debriefing with LFD Chaplain Brian Gosser following the call, which is typical for incidents with serious emotional impact on responders.

In the days following her flight to Portland Cidni was diagnosed with a rare heart defect called anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery, or AAOCA. The defect restricts blood flow to the heart and ultimately led to her cardiac arrest. Cidni underwent open heart surgery on April 30 to correct the defect, but the risk for arrhythmia and another possible cardiac arrest will remain. That risk meant that Cidni would need to have an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) near her at all times, and AED’s come with a significant price tag. Cidni’s pediatrician, Dr. Dana Kosmala, reached out to the Lebanon Fire District to ask about a loaner AED while the family figured out how to navigate the purchase of their own unit. “When Dr. Kosmala called me to ask if LFD could loan out an AED for a few weeks I thought, we can do better than that!”, said Chief Bolen. Bolen contacted LFD Lieutenant Russell Duerr who serves on the board of LFCAIRS, the Lebanon Firefighters Community Assistance and Initial Relief Service.

LFCAIRS is a non-profit organization which raises funds through donations and fundraising activities to support victims of house fires, traumatic circumstances, or catastrophic loss. “When I received the request from Chief Bolen I knew this was something that LFCAIRS could provide for this Lebanon family that would really help them out during a really difficult time.” said Lieutenant Duerr. In the matter of a few days the new AED was ordered and delivered to Cidni by Dr. Kosmala’s office. 

In the months since her incident Cidni has been focusing on her recovery and trying to get back into the normal routine of family life. While her condition may now limit her competitive sports participation, she looks forward to exchanging that for a horse someday.

It’s not often that responders get to follow up with their patients after the call. In most cases, responders will never know what happened to their patients once leaving the emergency room. That’s why last Friday was so special for the LFD crews when Cidni and her family walked through the doors at Fire Station 31. There were lots of smiles, stories, and even a few tears of joy. Both Nikki and Tim and the Lebanon Fire District continue to advocate for CPR instruction and how to use an AED in the event of another incident like Cidni’s. The fire district offers CPR/AED classes on a regular basis, and the Faulconers hope to see an AED installed at the soccer fields at Cheadle Lake Park.

“The stars really aligned that day so that Cidni had the best care possible from the moment she collapsed until she had her surgery.” notes LFD Battalion Chief Nick Tyler, who was the shift officer working on that April day. “It was a very special moment for us as responders to see her today, smiling and healthy!”.

A family friend has set up a Go Fund Me account for Cidni’s medical expenses. To view or donate, visit: https://www.gofundme.com/cidni039s-life-flight-fund

TRAFFIC #ALERT: MAJOR CRASH TEAM INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY ON SE 82ND AVE -- ONE PERSON INJURED


News Release from Portland Police Bureau
Posted on FlashAlert: October 15th, 2018 1:57 PM
On Monday, October 15, 2018, at 11:09 a.m., East Precinct and Traffic Division officers responded to the report of a crash in the 7300 block of Southeast 82nd Avenue.

When officers and emergency medical personnel arrived on scene they located an adult female lying on the ground. The injured woman was provided emergency medical aid and transported by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of what were believed to be serious life-threatening injuries.

Based on the severity of the woman's injuries, the Portland Police Bureau Traffic Division's Major Crash Team has responded to assume the investigation. Criminalists with the Forensic Evidence Division are also responding to assist with the investigation.

The investigation is in its early stages and at this time officers believe the driver of a Honda Pilot drove south on Southeast 82nd Avenue as the bicyclist traveled east on Southeast Henderson Street. The bicyclist and Honda collided at the intersection of Southeast 82nd Avenue and Southeast Henderson Street. The driver of the Honda remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators. There have been no citations issued or arrests made at this time.

During this investigation Southeast 82nd Avenue will be closed between Southeast Henderson Street and Southeast Flavel Street.

The Portland Police Bureau is committed to working with our partners in government and the community to create safer streets and work towards reducing, and eventually eliminating, traffic fatalities as part of Vision Zero.

Red Cross to Move to New Salem Facility

RED CROSS TO MOVE TO NEW SALEM FACILITY


News Release from American Red Cross - Cascades Region
Posted on FlashAlert: October 15th, 2018 11:17 AM
Downloadable file: News Release - Red Cross to Move to New Salem Facility

All Red Cross services, including disaster relief and blood donation services, will be available at one facility in Salem.

                                                                       

SALEM, Ore., October 15, 2018 – The American Red Cross offices in the Willamette Valley are moving to a new location, providing all Red Cross services under one roof in Salem. Red Cross disaster relief services, service to the armed forces and biomedical services will relocate from their current offices, on Orchard Heights Road and Cottage Street respectively, to a new combined facility, located at 1860 Hawthorne Avenue Northeast in Salem. The move is set to occur in early 2019.

“Locating all vital Red Cross services under one roof is priority for the organization,” said Cara Sloman, Regional Disaster Officer for the Red Cross Cascades Region. “There will be no disruption to Red Cross services during the transition, and we believe the relocation will only enhance our ability to best serve the community.”

Red Cross services were needed in 2017, perhaps more than ever, to respond to a record number of disasters in this region and beyond. In 2017, the Red Cross responded to more than 770 disasters like home fires, floods and wildfires; and helped more than 1,200 families and deployed responders nearly 370 times to disaster relief operations. 

Since its inception in 1881, and its start in Oregon in 1917, the American Red Cross has been dedicated to providing compassionate care to those in need. Its network of dedicated volunteers, employees and generous donors share a mission of preventing and alleviating suffering here at home and around the world through five key service areas: Disaster Cycle Services, Service to the Armed Forces, Blood Services, Preparedness Health and Safety Services and International Services. For more information on local Red Cross programs and services, visit www.redcross.org/Cascades or read our blog at www.redcrossblog.org.

About the American Red Cross
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office will host the 4th Annual "Drive with a Cop" on Saturday, Oct. 20 at Portland International Raceway (1940 N Victory Blvd, Portland, OR 97217) from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event takes place during National Teen Driver Safety Week. 

Media outlets are invited to attend. To set up interviews at Drive with a Cop, contact Event Coordinator Kim Lippert at 503-413-1762 or klippert@clackamas.us

"Car crashes are a leading killer of young people nationwide," said Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts. "This is our opportunity to make a difference and help save lives." 

At "Drive with a Cop" teen drivers will receive top notch training from law enforcement officers statewide who are also trained driving instructors. Teens will learn how to handle their car in all kinds of conditions and take part in a variety of activities outside the car to learn about the dangers of driving distracted or impaired.

The event also employs virtual reality, "Impaired Goggles" simulating intoxication, and other tech aimed at teaching young people about the dangers of driving impaired and distracted. There will also be a "Crash Reconstruction" presentation with CCSO forensic crash analyst Deputy Bryon O'Neil.

Teens will also hear from speakers impacted by car crashes, including Carrie Higgins, who lost her daughter Maddi in a high-speed car crash on June 8, 2014. Higgins has become a safe teen driving advocate -- and tells her story in hopes of empowering other teens to make good decisions while driving and as a passenger in the car.

Canby Fire responds to our first Chimney Fire as temperatures drop (Photo)

CANBY FIRE RESPONDS TO OUR FIRST CHIMNEY FIRE AS TEMPERATURES DROP (PHOTO)


News Release from Canby Fire Dist.
Posted on FlashAlert: October 15th, 2018 9:26 AM
Downloadable file: IMG_0842[1].JPG

Last night Oct 14th Canby Fire responded to a chimney fire on Castro rd in rural Canby. When firefighters arrived there was not only a chimney fire but the cedar shake roof had also caught on fire causing substantial damage.  

Please read the following tips to know when you have a chimney fire and how to avoid one 

One question we often get from homeowners concerned about chimney fires is “How can I tell if my chimney is on fire.” We normally respond with these important indicators provided by the Chimney Safety Institute of America: 

Loud cracking and popping noise 
Flames shooting from your chimney 
Low, loud rumbling noise that sounds like a freight train or airplane overhead 
A lot of dense smoke 
An intense, hot smell 

If you’re in doubt about whether your chimney is on fire, dial 911 immediately. There are products on the market that claim to help extinguish a chimney fire by sucking out oxygen. 

We can’t vouch for the effectiveness of these products, nor do we think a fire raging in your chimney is the time to test them out. Dialing 911 is always your safest move. 

Preventing a Chimney Fire 

Now that we’ve explained some of the warning signs of a chimney fire, here are a few simple tips you can use to prevent one from starting in your home. 

Hire a professional and certified chimney sweep to inspect and clean your chimney annually. 

Cleaning your chimney is not a DIY job. There is little margin for error with the consequences putting you and your family at risk. 

Only burn dry or cured wood. Burning wet or uncured wood leads to more creosote buildup in your flue. It’s that creosote buildup that usually leads to the ignition of a chimney fire. 

Don’t burn garbage in your fireplace. Not only does garbage contain chemicals that are dangerous to inhale, it can also lead to more dangerous buildup of combustible materials in your chimney. 

Keep your fireplace clean. Never start a fire on top of a bed of coals or ash for a previous fire. Doing so can cause the fire to burn even hotter than normal, sparking a chimney fire. 

Install a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector close to your fireplace.

Oregon Recreation Trails Advisory Council presents Doug Newman Award at Oregon Trails Summit (Photo)

OREGON RECREATION TRAILS ADVISORY COUNCIL PRESENTS DOUG NEWMAN AWARD AT OREGON TRAILS SUMMIT (PHOTO)


News Release from Oregon Parks and Recreation Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: October 15th, 2018 9:05 AM
Downloadable file: Bruce Ronning (left) and Lauralee Svendsgaard, ORTAC chair

SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Recreation Trails Advisory Council (ORTAC) presented the annual Doug Newman Memorial Award to Bruce Ronning at the 2018 Oregon Trails Summit Oct. 5.

Bruce Ronning is from Deschutes County and began his recreational career at the City of Eugene Parks Department. Bruce worked in their Outdoor Programs section, helping many Oregonians learn to ski, paddle, hike and bike.

During his career, Bruce served on several committees overseen by Oregon Parks and Recreation Department: ORTAC, the Recreational Trails Program advisory committee, the Local Government Grant Program advisory committee, and review committees for development of Oregon’s Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) and the Oregon Statewide Recreation Trails Plan.

Bruce retired from public service after 24 years with the Bend Park and Recreation District. During his tenure Bruce served as the Outdoor Programs Manager, Long Range Planner, and finally as the Director of Planning and Development. During that time 65 miles of the 95-mile Bend Urban Trails Plan were developed.

The Doug Newman Memorial Award recognizes an Oregonian whose efforts have inspired, benefitted and contributed to the trails and trail users of Oregon. The award pays tribute to Doug Newman, an avid outdoorsman, author and writer for the Eugene Register-Guard. He also worked extensively with the University of Oregon Outdoors Program. Diagnosed with polio as a child, Newman died in 1992.

ORTAC was established by the Legislature in 1971 to advise OPRD and its partners in the development and promotion of high quality non-motorized trail systems throughout Oregon. The Council is made up of seven volunteer members appointed by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission to represent the five Oregon congressional districts. The Council meets four times annually in different locations across the state.

For more information about the Doug Newman award or ORTAC, contact Jodi Bellefeuille at jodi.bellefeuille@oregon.gov or 503-986-0716.

***Correction-The previous release stated that "No one was found inside and injuries were reported". It has been corrected to say "No one was found inside and no injuries were reported" This was a typo.***

10/14/2018-This Morning at 5:40 AM Portland Fire & Rescue crews were called to a house on the 2000 block of SW Moss St. On arrival firefighters noted heavy fire throughout the 1.5 story structure. Reports from neighbors indicated that the structure is currently vacant, however it's still important for crews to check for people trapped inside. Crews worked to extinguish the fire, while other's vented the dangerous fire gases by cutting a hole in the roof.

A large amount furniture and other belongings slowed the entry of fire crews. They stated that it appeared that the house was being used for storage. Firefighters made their way inside only to be pulled back by fire commanders as fire burning in the attic increased. This was made more dangerous by the fact that furniture and other heavy items were kept in the attic space. After crews knocked down the attic fire they were able to continue attacking the fire from inside.

No one was found inside the house and no injuries were reported. The fire was extinguished and an investigator was called to the scene to determine the cause of the fire. Cause and damage estimates will be added to this release when they are available.

PF&R asks that you take care when collecting and storing items. If it is difficult to move through your home normally, it will be much worse during an emergency. The dust and smoke from a fire or earthquake will make it much harder to breath, see and escape! Help us to keep you safe!

On 10/13/2018 at 6:53 PM Lebanon Fire District responded to a house fire at 1960 South 9 th St. in Lebanon.  Upon arrival of the Battalion Chief the home was found to have fire in the structure with smoke and flames visible at the back of the house.  Engines and other apparatus from Lebanon responded to the scene but were hampered in their suppression efforts due to multiple propane tanks venting and ammunition that was involved in the fire. After it was safe to enter, crews  got a quick knock down on the exterior of the home, working to the inside of the home where the fire was extinguished completely.

It took seven fire apparatus and twenty firefighters to extinguish the blaze.  The cause of the fire was a generator used to supply electrical equipment located at the rear of the home. The occupants of the home were alerted to the fire by neighbors that saw the blaze and acted quickly to help the occupants get out.  There were no injuries reported.

Albany Fire assisted Lebanon by standing by while Lebanon’s crews were extinguishing the fire.

On Saturday, October 13, 2018, a demonstration, counter-demonstration and an unpermitted march occurred in Downtown Portland. The protest events and march were held on sidewalks and roadways in the Downtown Portland area over the course of approximately three hours.

Prior to the start of the event, liaison officers attempted to communicate with both groups to help facilitate a safe environment for everyone involved.

During today's event, officers observed people in possession of hard-knuckled gloves, firearms, batons and knives. Officers also observed people use pepper spray. At this time, the Police Bureau is not aware of any weapons that were seized during today's demonstration, counter-demonstration and march.

The Police Bureau is aware that people were assaulted during today's demonstration at an incident in the 400 block of Southwest Washington Street. On scene Portland Fire and Rescue emergency medical technicians provided emergency medical aid to four people during the march. However, the Police Bureau is unaware of anyone being transported by ambulance to area hospitals with injuries as a result of the assaults.

At this time, the Police Bureau is aware that the following riot control agents and less lethal impact munitions were used by officers in response to an assault in progress:
