A fire can start anywhere in our community and for any reason, some set on purpose, by accident and a by force of nature. In Pollock Pines we have the American River canyon that poses a very large threat to our community if a fire were to start. The potential winds that could come up through the canyon with a fire could possibly reach Pony Express within hours.
ARE YOU PREPARED FOR A FIRE EVACUATION?
WHEN A FIRE COMES WILL YOU BE PROACTIVE OR REACTIVE?
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program is a nationwide program that educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may effect their area. CERT training includes basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and urban rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations.
During a major disaster local authorities may be overwhelmed. CERT members are trained to assist others in their neighborhood or workplace when professional responders are not immediately available to help. Their skills can help save and sustain lives until help arrives.
CERT can also assist with non-emergency community events. CERT members have been used to distribute disaster education material, provide standby medical aid and direct traffic at parades, community cleanup and other events.
In El Dorado County CERT training is coordinated through the Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services (OES). For more information contact Deputy Jordan Thomson (530) 621-7660, .
Pollock Pines CERT was formed in Oct. 2006. Our meetings are held at the Pollock Pines Camino Community Center the third Saturday of the month at 9:00 am. Visitors are welcome. Contact Bob Todd at for more information.
Our monthly community breakfasts have ended for the school year. They will resume in September.
Sierra Ridge School and the Pollock Pines-Camino Rotary Club offer a service club to the 7th and 8th grade students. Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12-18.
Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance. Interact provides the opportunity to make new friends, improve our community, develop leadership skills and make a difference in the world. At the same time the students are having fun and receiving recognition for their service.
Interact clubs are self-governing making it possible to choose and carry out service projects that students care about. Some projects for this club include the monthly Community Breakfast (the second Saturday’s from September to May), making Water Purifying Indicators for use in third world areas, doing a project that benefits the school such as cleaning up the cross country track and donating 10 refurbished bikes to children at Pinewood School.
The Community Breakfasts are the the club's major fundraisers. The breakfast sales usually pay the expenses and the donations received allow the club the do community and world projects. Last year the club donated $55.00 to the Rotary PolioPlus project to eradicate Polio, and they donated $150 to the S/R Athletics Department for new basketballs and volleyballs and donated $300.00 to the Music Department that will be used in 2014-2015 for new music. (Over 50% of the school participates in the music programs.)
They provided service to the school to help monitor the Cross County Meet in the fall as well as helping with Benefit dinners and many other service projects.
With more than 250,000 Interactors in over 120 countries and geographical areas, Interact is a worldwide phenomenon that began in 1960.
Interact has been active at Sierra Ridge for the past four years and has received awards in 2011 from Rotary District 5190 being designated the “Rising Star Club”, in 2012 for International Service with the making of the Water Purifying Indicators and in 2013 for Fundraising. The club has brought in special speakers to Sierra Ridge School and to the club to enrich the Interact experience.
