“What is a ‘sustainable community,’ anyway?” you may ask.
At Pringle Creek Community, it is a place where the three pillars of sustainability, Environment, Economy, and Community are all equally embraced and nurtured so that those living in the future will experience the same, if not better, quality of life as we experience today. What does that have to do with emergency management?
A resilient community of people is similar to a resilient ‘community’ in the Jefferson Wilderness. It is diverse in talent, specialization, age, and knowledge. It is also aware of the strengths and weaknesses of its neighbors so that when a disaster strikes it knows where to look for strength and reinforcement and is able to quickly assist the weak. At Pringle Creek Community, our ‘community’ extends beyond our borders into the greater Salem area. We continually strive to understand and engage with our neighbors, to share our strengths with those around us. We also understand that in the event of an emergency, we will get involved with those around us to repair, heal, and rebuild. In the process of preparing for an emergency, we have the opportunity to get to know our neighbors better. A win-win situation!
That is why we’re hosting the workshop on Emergency Preparedness Tuesday, June 16th at 6:00 p.m. We look forward to learning from Roger Stevenson, Emergency Preparedness Manager with the City of Salem with all of you! Join us and get prepared for whatever may strike!
