Agenda/Meeting Minutes

  • Rollcall and check-ins including Lynn, Tricia, Irene, and Greg
  • Last month’s 2/23/2022 Meeting Minutes – Portland Hayhurst Neighborhood Emergency Team (hayhurstnet.com) have been approved by all attendees.
  • Reviewed the trifold and reached agreement. Click here for details.
  • Greg held meeting with Cameron confirmed consultation session with neighborhood group on Saturday, April 2, 2022 from 10am to 11 introducing Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) program in general to give everyone an understanding of how NET/CERT helps our community when the time comes, and general QnA regarding the following materials:
  • A big congratulations to Irene for completing the PBEM certification training! We are very grateful to have formal new member that has been dedicated and actively involved for a long time join the team. Irene passed on some open questions from the training that we should address:
    • Need address of members to help strategize locations from homes to staging area for impact assessment
    • Considering the BEECN residing in Gabriel Park, we like to additionally reconsider a toolbox unit at VHUMC to centrally store critical inventory needed; for now, here’s a link to the spreadsheet noting the inventory that each member has to offer. A Google Doc Spreadsheet (click here) noting the cache of what each member owns. Maplewood has achieved getting the school to use the staging area, so it would be worth re-evaluate approaching VHUMC using some property space for storage. See action items.
  • Tricia facilitated a group review of the current Hayhurst Operations Plan (click here) to identify changes needed to align it with the trifold approved above.
    • Page 6: first paragraph remove. Correct the 1, 2, 2, 3 incorrect numbering. Remove the “5 person team”. Be sure to leave last sentence.
    • Page 7: The Chain of Command (COC) is as follows: Go generic and leave names out of the ops plan. Take second and third paragraph out.
    • Page 8: members have supply caches at their homes.
    • Page 9: needs a resource list update
    • Being that Alpenrose Dairy is no longer an option, we need to determine a secondary staging area for Hayhurst Neighborhood. Greg will approach the other church off Cameron to consider the possibility.
    • Page 10: remove italicized material, update hours.
    • Page 11: verify the contact information.
  • Action Items –
    • Lynn agreed to talk to the minister Bo about using space for unit, reconvene using the space for face-to-face monthly meetings, security code, etc.
    • Tricia will send the trifold (click here for materials) to Kandy @ Maplewood NET.
    • Greg will approach Maplewood to request a joint meeting next month to discuss May 7th April 22nd w/ to plan deployment exercise.
