Denver Water's Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is a 10-member volunteer committee that advises Denver Water staff and the Board of Water Commissioners on a variety of issues while encouraging and coordinating public participation in the organization's policy-making process. The committee was created as a result of the 1979 Foothills Agreement that, among other terms of the agreement, required Denver Water to form a citizens group charged with representing public interests in specific categories of stakeholder groups, including one representative from a Denver Water distributor.
You and your family can help your community plan for and recover after a disaster.
- Get to know your neighbors, in case of emergency. Neighbors are often immediate support following a disaster.
- Learn a life safety skill and know what to do when someone is hurt by taking a CPR and first aid class
Between school, sports and social lives, chances are, you won’t be with your kids if a disaster happens.
Ready.gov/kids has the educational tools and information to make the conversation easy. When the time comes, chances are, they’ll feel prepared, not scared. So, talk with your family today.
By planning and taking action in advance, everyone can be prepared, no matter where or when disaster strikes.
- Know your community’s risks and what you would do when they occur.
- Sign up for emergency alerts so that during an emergency, you receive life-saving information from your state and local municipality.
Prepare financially for disasters, now. Saving money and having insurance are the best financial defenses against disasters.
- Create a budget that includes a savings plan so you can be ready for the unexpected.
- Set aside money for an emergency fund to cover disaster costs you may incur including hotel stay, food, gas, and insurance deductibles.
- Have cash in your emergency supply kit to be ready for an extended power outage when there may be limited access to ATMs and credit cards.
Lake Estes Marina manager Annie Hanson sent us some great photos taken yesterday by Jim Ward
of two little Tiger Muskies, and a couple of birds of prey enjoying lunch.
Here's what happens when you ask a couple of local golfers if they would mind posing for a photo
for the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District website...
That's a little more like what I had in mind!
