Any recovery from something this big will take time. Because of this, I know that we will also be looking at new ways that our Southern Oregon Chapter can support the safety and health of our community in light of this devastating week. Feel free to contact me with ideas you may have going forward about how our members and chapter can support our community and make improvements. Remember, we are safety professionals, and it is time for us to help. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. My sincere appreciation goes out to our brave fire fighters, law enforcement, and public works teams across our region.
