Oak Lodge invites public to drinking-water drill
Oak Lodge Community Emergency Response Team volunteers, in conjunction with the Oak Lodge Water Services and Clackamas Fire districts, will practice distributing drinking water to the public.
As part of this exercise, OLCERT volunteer Jane Cilvetti said citizens will practice bulk-water distribution at a central area, water purification using portable filters, and traffic and communications management.
"It's estimated to take 10 to 15 minutes of your time, and no one will need to park or exit their vehicle," Cilvetti said.
This activity will take place from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at the rear of the Concord School property, 3811 S.E. Concord Road. Members of the public are asked to help by bringing a clean, empty container to be filled with potable water.
Enter the site on Southeast Spaulding Avenue, located off Oatfield Road. Participants also will receive a new 1-gallon water container that folds flat, and literature to assist in preparing at home for natural or human-caused emergency situations.
