Long term flood recovery intake locations

The Long Term Flood Recovery Group (LTFRG) has organized 5 walk-in intake locations across the county from February 10-22. In order to be notified of available resources, including financial assistance from the LTFRG, residents affected by the flood are required to visit a walk-in center to complete a short interview regarding flood losses and recovery needs.

All information given at the walk-in centers is confidential and will assist designated case managers to help residents connect with available resources. The information will also help to develop a detailed estimate of the total cost for recovery in the community which helps the LTFRG as well as government agencies raise the necessary recovery funds and donations of building materials and supplies.

Interview questions are straightforward and should not require residents to supply any paperwork, although if flood survivors do have a FEMA number, they are asked to bring that with them to the center. Spanish language interpreters will be onsite at the Longmont location every day and will be available at other sites during designated hours. Sites are also wheelchair accessible (with the exception of the Altona Grange site) and appointments can be made for any ASL requirements.

Ham Radio training!!!

In more awesome Mountain Leaders Forum (soon to be InterMountain Alliance) news we’ll be holding 2 training sessions to prepare for the Technicians class of Amateur Radio License. You can attend one or the other (or both, but that’s not necessary). There are online resources as primers (links will be available Sept 30 on this website), the class helps you prepare and BCARES (Boulder County Amateur Radio Emergency Services) will be conducting the classes. Additionally, those who take the classes, take the exam, and are licensed, will be issued a handheld radio to become part of the Mountain Network.

The idea is to build a network of operators so that in an emergency, like wildfire or flood or crippling snowstorm, there are not only lots of eyes on the ground, but that those eyes can effectively communicate with the Sheriff’s Office and Office of Emergency Management (OEM). Not only can we contribute to our safety, but this is a means to get current, correct, updated information from OEM in the case of an emergency. Certainly that was sorely lacking in the Four Mile Fire.

If you’re interested in the training, it will be held Wednesday, 10/19/11 from 7-9PM or Saturday 10/22/11 from 9AM-11AM. Locations to be determined.

Anyone in the six community InterMountain Alliance (Ward, Allenspark, Jamestown, Lyons, Nederland, and Gold Hill)  is eligible to attend. It’s free. The test is $14.

CORRECTION:

The training is 6 hours. The first session will be in Ned at the Community Center 10/22/2011 from 9AM-3PM.

Second session: Gold Hill Fire Barn 10/29/2011, 9AM-3PM.

Please RSVP to Rebecca (459-3543) or Karelle (459-3363) or via the contact page of this website.

 

Solutions for Occupational Safety: First Aid, CPR, AED class

The class, held on 2 Saturdays, was a great success and 3 of our Indian Peaks firefighters, and several general community members received their CPR and First Aid certifications.

We’d love to have SOS and Patti Anderson back for another round of classes, and offer the opportunity to other local communities, so if you’re interested, please contact us and we’ll put you in touch and help set up a class.
