Pollock Pines Fire Safe Council

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?

Prepare with this Pre-Evacuation Checklist.

WHEN A FIRE COMES WILL YOU BE PROACTIVE OR REACTIVE?

CERT

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.

Interact Community Breakfast

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.

Check this flyer for our breakfast dates and menu.

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  and assisting Rotary with projects such as Breakfast with Santa.

With more than 250,000 Interactors in over 120 countries and geographical areas, Interact is a worldwide phenomenon that began in 1960.

At Sierra Ridge, Mrs Little serves as the Faculty Adviser and Mrs. Carol Abbanat the Rotarian Adviser.

Meetings are held during the lunch periods Tuesdays twice a the month. All meetings are open to any interested student and there is no financial requirement to join the Interact Club.

Interact has been active at Sierra Ridge for the past seven years and has received awards in 2012 “Rising Star Club” , 2013 year for International Service with the making of the Water Purifying Indicators and 2014 for outstanding use of fund-raising. In 2016-2017 the Club was awarded the Outstanding Middle School Award at the Rotary District Conference. The club has brought in special speakers to Sierra Ridge School and to the club to enrich the Interact experience.

We hope you will consider Interact for the 2017-2018  school year.
