ECHPOA MEETING MINUTES OF JANUARY 4, 2012
Meeting was called to order by President Felix Beall at 7:07 P.M. Felix introduced Brian Foltz, Park County Emergency Manager, who gave a presentation on personal preparedness: what to do in case of a evacuation, what to do survive for several days if you are snowed in or if your power is off, etc. We should be prepared for a period of 3-5 days: food, water (5 gal. per day minimum), personal sanitary items, medications, etc. for self and family. If you have to evacuate–you should put the following in your car: personal files, photos (know where these things are) clothing, things of value, etc. If evacuated, leave a note on your door telling where you went. Be sure to do mitigation to your property to cut down the possibility of fires. In case of an emergency and you are alone with no transportation to get out, dial 911 and they will send someone to get you. Regarding horses, there is a horse rescue operation that will come after them. Mr. Foltz teaches classes on Citizen Emergency Response Training and makes presentations to various organizations.
