West Side Fire District

Fire District 3
It is now week three of Wildfire Awareness Month in Oregon! #WAM This week is all about fire-prone plants, such as juniper, cypress, and arborvitae varieties. Did you know that decades of research from NFPA’s Wildfire and Firewise USA Programs have shown that both the house and the landscape adjacent to it play a critical role in the structure surviving a wildfire? A wildfire can transfer from ignited vegetation to an ignited home though radiation, convection, or embers/firebrands.

To better prepare your home, use fire-resistant plants, which include:

West Side Fire District

On Thursday the Hood River County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police and local Fire/EMS responders conducted a lockdown and evacuation drill at HRVHS in coordination with school officials. Following the evacuation, School Resource Deputy Ives of HRCSO led an assembly to talk about safety and how the students can play their part.

1) Access control: All visitors and late-arriving students should enter through the main entrance. All other doors are locked for a reason.
2) If you see something, say something: Students are usually the first to know if a peer is having a difficult time or if threats are being made.
3) No bullying allowed: Students are in control of the campus culture and have the ability to put a stop to bullying.
4) Be a friend: Students should never allow a student to be lonely even as they are surrounded by people.

HRCSO, the Hood River County School District, and all local first responders place a high priority on school safety, and have worked closely on school safety drills throughout the school year. A big shout out to the students of HRVHS who did an amazing job!
