Tip of the Week For the week of June 17, 2024 Encountering Bears in Your Community Recently, there has been an increase in bear encounters in Oregon communities. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) urges Oregonians to respect nature and do their part to ensure wildlife, including black bears, and people coexist. A bear's strongest sense is smell. This means everything from trash cans to grill drippings can bring them to your property. Bears also have a great memory when it comes to food, which allows them to remember where they have previously found food sources, including trash. Female bears will pass this knowledge down to their young. Because of this great memory and knowledge sharing, intentionally or accidentally feeding bears can negatively affect multiple generations of bears. In addition to bringing unwanted visitors, feeding bears (intentionally or accidentally) can be harmful. Wildlife have specialized diets that coincide with seasonal changes. Food provided by humans can negatively impact their health, lead to conflict and safety issues with people, and in some cases, have fatal consequences for animals. For the sake of Oregon's wildlife and their health, do not feed them. Living responsibly with black bears is possible and it's up to everyone to do their part to keep people safe and bears wild. Below are some tips to help keep your community and local black bears safer. ๐Ÿป Never feed or approach bears. Feeding bears, intentionally or unintentionally, will cause them to associate people with food. It is also against the law in Oregon (ORS 496.730). ๐Ÿป Secure food, garbage and recycling. Ensure your trash and dumpsters are secure by using commercially available garbage cans, metal bars over dumpsters, fully enclosed trash storage, or by storing garbage inside. Take trash out immediately before pick-up, not the night before. Wash garbage cans with bleach to reduce their smell. Food waste is one of the strongest attractants for black bears and allowing bears access could qualify as illegal feeding if appropriate steps are not taken to prevent the issue. ๐Ÿป Remove bird feeders in bear habitat when bears are active. Birds have plenty of naturally available food sources during all seasons which is why some species migrate in winter. Bears can be food rewarded from bird seed and suet in feeders leading to habituation and food conditioning, destroyed birdfeeders, and public safety concerns. ๐Ÿป Never leave pet food outdoors. This practice can easily attract bears and other wildlife, putting both pets and wildlife at risk. ๐Ÿป Clean and store grills after each use. ๐Ÿป Alert neighbors and ODFW to unusual bear activity such as continued sightings during daylight hours, lack of wariness around people or pets, etc. A community effort is vital to keep your neighborhood and wildlife safe. One person who feeds or attracts bears, intentionally or not, increases the risk for the entire neighborhood.

Tip of the Week For the Week of June 10, 2024 Outdoor Grilling Safety Grilling season is here and there's nothing like grilling outdoors on nice day. A BBQ or grilling party can be the perfect thing to celebrate grads and dads or bring the neighborhood together. There are many different types of grills and some unique tips for each. For your next cookout, use these tips from the National Fire Protection Association. ๐Ÿ” Propane and charcoal grills should ONLY be used outdoors. They should be placed well away from the home, deck railings, and overhanging tree branches. ๐ŸŒญ Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grilling area. This helps prevent grills from being knocked over and helps prevent burns and other injuries. ๐Ÿ” Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grill and trays below the grill. ๐ŸŒญ Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it. ๐Ÿ” Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using your grill each year. You can do this by applying a light soap and water solution to the outside of the hose. If there is a leak, the gas will cause it to release bubbles. If your grill has a gas leak, turn off the grill. If the leak does not stop, get it serviced by a professional before using it again. ๐ŸŒญ If you smell gas while you're cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do NOT move the grill. ๐Ÿ” If you use starter fluid with your charcoal grill, use only charcoal starter fluid; always keep it out of the reach of children and pets and keep it away from heat sources. ๐ŸŒญ When you are finished grilling, let the charcoals cool completely before disposing of them in a metal container. Do not put hot coals in your garbage bin or another container. This can start a fire. ๐Ÿ” Most importantly: NEVER leave your grill unattended.

Tip of the Week For the week of June 3, 2024 Pet Preparedness June is National Pet Preparedness month and is the perfect time to review your emergency plans for your furry, scaley, and feathery family members. Keep your pets and livestock prepared for emergencies by taking these steps: ๐Ÿ„ Create and practice your emergency plan for pets and livestock. ๐Ÿšจ Take inventory of and replace expired emergency supplies such as pet food, medications, and water. โš ๏ธ Stay informed of local hazards and emergencies. Take appropriate steps to keep your animals safe and be prepared to evacuate them with your household. Plan for Pets ๐ŸฑTake animals with you if you need to evacuate. Only as a last resort should animals be left behind. ๐Ÿถ Create a plan with neighbors, friends, or relatives to evacuate your pet if you are not able to do so. ๐Ÿฑ Animals may run away or hide during an emergency. If your area is in a level one or higher evacuation warning, put your petโ€™s collar or harness on and keep them in a secure room. Doing this will allow you to grab them quickly if you need to evacuate. ๐Ÿถ Many emergency shelters cannot accept animals. Before disaster strikes, find out which hotels/shelters allow animals or which friends outside of the area will be able to help. ๐Ÿฑ Be sure ID tags are on collars and consider a microchip. ๐Ÿถ Keep your dogโ€™s license (legally required) and catโ€™s license (recommended) updated. This help animals get reunited with their families faster. ๐Ÿฑ Keep your petsโ€™ vaccinations and ID tags up to date. Keep a copy of these documents in your familyโ€™s Go Bag. ๐Ÿถ Prepare a pet emergency kit with leashes, collars, portable carriers, water, food, medications, sanitation materials, immunization records, first-aid kit, and photos to prove ownership. ๐Ÿฑ Donโ€™t leave pets in vehicles, tethered, or crated without you. ๐Ÿถ If you have to leave your animals at home, keep them inside a secure area. Leave at least a 10-day supply of dry food and water. Put signs on windows and doors indicating the number and type of animals inside and your contact information. ๐Ÿฑ Be aware that your petโ€™s behavior may change after a crisis. They may become more aggressive or self-protective. Plan for Livestock ๐Ÿฎ If your area is in a level 2 or higher evacuation warning, evacuate with your livestock immediately. Begin preparing your livestock for transport in a level 1 evacuation warning. This will give you more time to safely secure your animals and get trailers or other equipment on the road before it is too late. ๐Ÿด Post emergency contact numbers on barns and/or pasture fences. ๐Ÿฎ Write your phone number on your stock with a permanent marker if you must release them. ๐Ÿด Have a supply of feed at a separate location. ๐Ÿฎ Involve family and neighbors in an evacuation plan. ๐Ÿด Make a kit with leads, halters, first aid, quieting hoods, water, photos, and a copy of your ownership papers.

Tip of the Week For the Week of May 27, 2024 Safety Tips for Runners The Newport Marathon is just around the corner, so we can expect to see local and guest runners hitting the road on June 1st. Motorists should use extra caution, not only during special events like this, but throughout the year. Whether you are a well-seasoned runner or just beginning your running hobby, there are some things you should consider to keep yourself safe while running. The time of day and weather impact not only how you feel on your run but can also be more dangerous depending on the situation. Before heading out on your next run, consider these tips. Before the Run ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Run with another person or a group. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Let someone know when and where you are running and when you will return. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Carry ID and a cell phone. Consider adding a small card with an emergency contact and any allergies or known medical conditions. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Take a whistle with you. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Dress for the weather and running conditions. Wear layers and sturdy shoes. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Wear reflective clothing or gear regardless of the time of day. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Use caution if you wear headphones or anything that distracts you. Be aware of cars passing by, animals you may encounter, and other hazards on your route. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Vary the route and the time of day that you run. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ If you run at night, remember to wear a headlamp and a flashing red light on your back. Consider additional reflective gear. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Remember to stretch! Stretching before running and regular flexibility and strength training help prevent injuries. During the Run ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Run against traffic so that you can observe the approach of automobiles. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ When possible, run on sidewalks or designated trails/pedestrian paths. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Remember to hydrate. Runnerโ€™s belts and vests make it easier to carry water and snacks. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Keep an eye on the temperature and how your body feels. If you start to overheat, feel dizzy, or otherwise unwell, take a break in the shade and drink water. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Stay alert. When in doubt, follow your intuition. If something seems suspicious, do not panic, but run in a different direction. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Do not approach a car to give directions. If you feel you must respond, do it while moving. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Run in familiar areas. Note the location of neighbors or open businesses along the route. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ When in doubt call for help. For an emergency, call 911. Non-emergency dispatch can be reached at 541-265-0777, or call a friend and keep them on the phone until you feel safe again.

As Mental Health Awareness Month wraps up, we want to emphasize the importance of reaching out and reducing stigma in our community. Here are some ways you can make a lasting impact when it comes to mental health: ๐Ÿ“ข Have an open dialogue without judgment. This helps reduce stigma and can help loved ones get the support they need to recover. โœจ Remember mental health is a broad topic. It covers emotional and psychological well-being, substance use, and mental disorders. ๐Ÿซ‚ Reach out when you have a concern or notice a change in someone. Often times we ask those that are struggling to reach out, but we know that mental health disorders and stigma can isolate people, making it difficult to ask for help. This is one reason you should check in instead of waiting for them to reach out. Your connection may make all the difference. ๐Ÿ’ซ Remember there are many support options for you and loved ones. Friends, family, and professionals can offer different levels of support and resources. โ˜Ž๏ธ Keep these hotlines handy for you or a loved one โ˜Ž๏ธ ๐Ÿ’™ Lincoln County Crisis Line: English and Espaรฑol: 1-866-266-0288 ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Veterans Crisis Line: English: 1-800-273-8255 Press 1 Espaรฑol: 1-800-273-8255 Press 2 ๐Ÿ’œ National Suicide Prevention Hotline: English: 800-273-8255 Espaรฑol: 1-888-628-9454 ๐Ÿ˜Ž Youthline: English and Espaรฑol: 877-968-8491 ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ The Trevor Project (LGBTQ+ Support): English: 1-866-488-7386 ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€โšง๏ธ National Trans Suicide Hotline: English: 1-877-565-8860 Press 1 Espaรฑol: 1-877-565-8860 Press 2
