Responding to Extreme Heat For the Disabled
Disability Rights of Oregon warns that extreme weather can be threat to people living it disabilities.  Use these links to learn more about the risks and respond to them.

From more information visit: https://www.droregon.org/extreme-heat-resources

Disability Rights of Oregon provides tips to help the disabled to stay safe and healthy

Drink a lot of water!

Many people don’t realize how much faster they get dehydrated when the heat is so intense. Some people have disabilities that may keep them from realizing how dehydrated they are. Avoid alcohol and energy drinks, as they can actually dehydrate you further.

The coolest place in your home

Find the coolest place to be in your home. Downstairs will usually be cooler than upstairs. Shadier places will be cooler than sunny places. Consider pulling curtains over windows facing the sun.

If you don’t have a home with air-conditioning, consider going to a public place with air conditioning, like a library, shopping center, theater, or other public building. Many public buildings around the state are open as cooling centers.

Make backup plan

Make a backup plan to stay cool. Make a plan for what to do if your home gets too hot. Even if you have air-conditioning, have a plan for what to do if the power goes out. Cooling centers and other public buildings are a good alternative.

Check the temperature in your home regularly

If you’re staying in a home without air-conditioning, use a thermometer or your thermostat to check the temperature in your home regularly. Some people who have disabilities and some people who are older have difficulty telling when their home has gotten too hot. As the temperature climbs, consider using a cooling center or other air-conditioned place for relief.

Beware parked cars!

Do not sit in a parked car, do not leave children in a parked car, and do not leave service animals, emotional support animals, or pets in a parked car! In intense heat and sunlight, it is not safe to stay in a parked car for any period of time, except with the engine on and the air-conditioning running.

The hottest part of the day

In Oregon, the hottest part of the day is usually between noon and evening. Take special care to stay cool and limit your activity during that time. If you choose to be active, early morning and late evening may be better times to be active. Letting in cool air overnight can help keep your home from overheating.

Check in with your network

If you live alone, check in with family, friends, neighbors, and other supports regularly throughout the weekend.

Extreme Heat Can Make Asphalt Dangerous to animals and people!

Even under normal, temperatures can heat asphalt surfaces to and cause contact burns on the feet of animals and people. At only 87 Degrees, asphalt can heat to 143 Degrees Fahrenheit! But at 125 Degrees, skin can be destroyed in 60 seconds. Take steps to protect your animals feet and your own and to avoid heat stroke. Avoid walking during the hottest parts of the day, and make sure your dogs and other animals have access to shade and clean water.

COVID-19 Vaccine Access Information

Información de acceso a la vacuna COVID-19

English & Espanol

As of April 19, 2021, all Oregonians over 16 are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
**This is a big day for the state. Many thanks to the folks on the front lines who are running vaccination sites and working so hard to get as many people as possible vaccinated.
See below for information on getting scheduled for a vaccine.
Accelerated Access to COVID-19 Vaccinations
Scheduling a Vaccination
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) has created several resources to assist individuals in planning for their COVID-19 vaccination:
How to find a COVID-19 Vaccine in Oregon
Available in Spanish at Cómo encontrar una vacuna contra el COVID-19 en Oregon
What to know before you get vaccinated
Post Vaccination: What we all need to do together
Scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine is primarily managed through the
OHA’s Get Vaccinated Oregon website.
The OHA has created a Get Vaccinated Oregon Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
Multi-lingual assistance using the Get Vaccinated Oregon tool is also available by calling 211.
Some local pharmacies are offering vaccinations through a Federal Retail Pharmacy Program partnership.
Appointments can be made by visiting pharmacy websites directly:
If you need to get a vaccine through the drive-through site at PDX Airport, please go to OHSU’s COVID-19 Vaccine: Information and Appointments page.
All COVID-19 vaccine sites are dependent upon the availability of vaccine supply, which is determined by many factors, including supply at the national level and allocation at the federal and state levels.
Appointments are required.
Multnomah County maintains the COVID-19 Vaccine page which includes information options for scheduling a vaccination and resources for individuals who may need assistance scheduling an appointment due to language or barriers with technology.
Lastly, if you’re an immigrant, please know the following:
All eligible people in Oregon can get the vaccine.
You do NOT need to be a U.S. citizen to get the vaccine.
Getting the vaccine will NOT affect your immigration status or count as a public charge.
You do not need to have or provide a social security number.
You do not need to have identification.
If you need help, you can call the Safe + Strong Helpline at 1-800-923-HELP (4357).

Oregon Covid-19 – Support For Tenants and Landlords

Resources & Assistance

 

ASSISTANCE AND RESOURCES FOR TENANTS:

Statewide Eviction Moratorium

There is a new statewide eviction moratorium (HB 4401) that will last until June 30, 2021. This means that, with limited exceptions, landlords cannot evict renters for nonpayment or without cause until July of 2021.​

Renters must sign and return a “tenants declaration” to their landlord if they can’t afford their rent.

http://www.livingcully.org/

Instructions and tenant declarations forms are available from Living Cully in English and Spanish.

Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Information and Application For Tenants and Landlords

The Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program is open as of May 19th. OHCS is working with local organizations to provide more than $200 million in assistance to low-income Oregonians that have been financially impacted by COVID-19. OHCS created a partner toolkit to help communities promote this vital resource. This packet includes check lists for tenants and landlords, application information and documentation, frequently asked questions, and other helpful information related to the program.

Solicitud En Papel

The Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Beginning May 19, 2021, qualified renters who have experienced financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic, and are at risk of homelessness or housing instability, may apply for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP). This program is not a loan, which means those who receive assistance will not have to pay back funds so long as they are used as approved and not duplicating other assistance programs. Assistance is offered to all eligible renters regardless of their citizenship or immigration status, and it will not impact the recipient’s eligibility for other federally funded programs such as food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare, social security, WIC or public housing.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Landlord/Tenant Law FAQ

 

 

https://www.osbar.org/index.html#

Is there an eviction moratorium in place right now?

Yes. There are three eviction moratoriums that apply to Oregonians right now. The most important one is Executive Order 20-56 (EO 20-56). It states that landlords are mostly unable to end tenancies without tenant cause. Also, landlords are unable to end tenancies for nonpayment from Oct. 1, 2020, through Dec. 31, 2020.

The second moratorium is House Bill 4213 (HB 4213) from the Oregon Legislature. HB 4213 allows tenants until April 1, 2021, to pay back any rent or other moneys that were not paid between April 1, 2020, and September 30, 2020. Landlords cannot serve a notice of termination or evict a tenant for nonpayment of rent that came due between April and September until after March 31, 2021.

The third moratorium on evictions is an order from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If a tenant files a declaration saying:

  • They are unable to pay their rent;
  • They make less than $99,000 per year;
  • They are trying to pay as much as they can, and;
  • They are trying obtain all available government assistance, then a landlord cannot terminate their tenancy except for cause until after Dec. 31, 2020.

In most cases, this is weaker than the protection provided by EO 20-56. This makes the executive order more relevant to Oregonians.

Can a landlord evict a tenant for nonpayment?

A landlord cannot serve a termination notice or file an eviction case for nonpayment until after Dec. 31, 2020. This includes nonpayment of rent, late fees or other payments associated with the tenancy incurred between April 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2020. Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, unless the law changes, landlords will be able to take action against tenants for missing payments that come due in 2021. This also applies to payments that came due between Oct. 1, 2020, and Dec. 31, 2020. There is a grace period through March 31, 2021, for payments incurred between April 1, 2020, and September 30, 2020.

For example, if a tenant did not pay rent in May of 2020 or September of 2020, but paid rent every month after that, the landlord would not be able to take action on the unpaid rent from May and September until April 1, 2021. But, if a tenant kept up with their rent during the emergency period but missed rent in January, a landlord could evict that person in January.

Under the CDC eviction moratorium, which lasts through Dec. 31, 2020, if a tenant files a declaration saying:

  • They are unable to pay their rent;
  • They make less than $99,000 per year;
  • They are trying to pay as much as they can, and;
  • They are trying to obtain all available government assistance, then a landlord cannot evict the tenant for nonpayment through Dec. 31, 2020.

The legality of the CDC eviction moratorium order has been challenged, but it is currently good law.

What about other kinds of notices?

None of the above explanations cover terminations “for cause” where the cause is something other than nonpayment. Causes that violate a rental agreement may include:

  • Destroying property.
  • Smoking where not allowed.
  • Allowing other people to move in.

A landlord can give a termination notice and seek to evict the tenant if they fail to move out at the end of the termination notice.

But, termination notices for no cause are prohibited by the state moratorium during the emergency period. A no-cause notice may be for a landlord reason such as wanting to repair the dwelling or convert it to a nonresidential use. However, under EO 20-56, a landlord may give a termination notice asking that the tenants move out in 90 days if the landlord or an immediate family member of the landlord wants to move in. This also applies if the landlord has sold the premises to someone who plans to move in.

Can a landlord still give a 24-hour inspection notice or does that violate social distancing?

Governor Brown has ordered all businesses to maintain social distancing within the workplace. She has not specifically addressed this issue. Nevertheless, the order suggests that a landlord should not be entering a rented property unless absolutely necessary (like for emergency repairs of leaks, breaks, power outages, etc.). The landlord should only perform an inspection while maintaining a distance of six feet from any other person. The landlord also should not come into contact with the surfaces of the home. If this cannot be done, then the landlord should wait until the state of emergency ends to conduct inspections.

Additionally, ORS 90.322(1)(f) allows a tenant to deny consent to a landlord who wishes to enter the premises with a 24-hour notice. The denial must be in writing and must be posted on the main entrance to the premises. A tenant cannot deny lawful access without risking the termination of the tenancy. So, any denial of entry for COVID-19 related reasons should state so in the written denial posted on the door.

A landlord who insists upon entry when a tenant has denied entry may be subject to civil penalties. In addition, failure to comply with the governor’s social distancing order is a Class C misdemeanor.

Where can a renter go for assistance if they receive an eviction notice?

If you are low-income, contact your local Legal Aid office. You can find your local office at https://oregonlawhelp.org/find-legal-help. If you do not qualify for legal aid services, contact the Oregon State Bar’s Lawyer Referral Service at (800) 452-7636.

If you are a veteran, disabled, elderly or under a certain income level, additional services may be available in your area. If you need help connecting to services in your area, call 311.

If your landlord tries to forcibly remove you from your home, call your local law enforcement.

The COVID-19 situation is changing on a daily basis. These answers are our best interpretation of the state’s precautions as of Oct. 5, 2020. Please check these websites to monitor changes:

OHCS Landlord Compensation Fund

The next application round will be opening in late March 2021 and will include another $50 million in assistance.

The Oregon Legislature  enacted an eviction moratorium and  established the Landlord Compensation Fund (HB 4401). The Legislature allocated $200 million in rent assistance to support tenants and landlords, which includes $150 million for the Landlord Compensation Fund.

The first round will fund up to $50 million in requests for unpaid rent. Participating landlords must accept 80 cents for every dollar of qualified rent-owed and this first funding round will include rent owed from April 2020 – February 2021. The program is not a “first come, first serve” basis, please see criteria below.
Please note:
FIRST ROUND DEADLINE: Friday, March 5 at 4:00pm.
If you are experiencing difficulties and have initiated an application and intend to submit it for the first-round funding – we are committed to working through these technical issues with you. If you are working on this application and need additional assistance with technical issues, you must complete the form at the following link by 4pm on Friday to secure your place in Round 1.
For those that would prefer to wait until the next round of funding, which will be open in April 2021, we will have funding to offer for carry-over and new applications submitted for the second round. As a reminder, the first round includes $50 million of the total $150 million in program funds.

As a reminder to all applicants, the deadline for first application round of the Landlord Compensation Fund program is4pm on Friday March 5, 2021.

The next application round will be opening in late March 2021 and will include another $50 million in assistance.

Meeting Guidelines

We read the guidelines before each meeting to remind us that we are all responsible for following and committing to the group standards, which are in place to keep this group a safe place to share.

Share the air
Everyone who wishes to share has an opportunity to do so. No one person should monopolize group time.

One person speaks at a time
Each person should be allowed to speak free from interruption and side conversations.

What is said here stays here
This is the essential principle of confidentiality, and MUST be respected by all.

Differences of opinion are o.k.
We are ALL entitled to our own point of view.

We are all equal
We accept cultural, linguistic, social and racial differences and promote their acceptance.

Use “I” language
Because we do not participate in support groups as credentialed professionals, we do not INSTRUCT or ADVISE. We however do share from our own personal experiences. We are unique individuals, and only we know what is best for our own health (along with our doctor’s recommendations). Example: “In my experience, I have found…”

It’s o.k. not to share
People do not have to share if they do not wish to.

It’s everyone’s responsibility to make the discussion groups a safe place to share.
We respect confidentiality, treat each other with respect and kindness, and show compassion.

FeldenKrais – Movement Classes Online Daily at FeldenKrais – Weekdays and Weekends @ Online via Zoom

FeldenKrais Classes Online Every Hour of the Day

Welcome to a new way of thinking about health.

The Feldenkrais Method® is a powerful and revolutionary approach to improving your life that uses gentle, mindful movement to bring new awareness and possibility into every aspect of your life. Developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, the Feldenkrais Method has helped millions of people worldwide.

The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education is a practice, a process, and a system for self-improvement. It is a form of “somatic education,” which means it uses movement and real-time awareness of your own body sensations to guide you toward the positive changes you seek.

The Feldenkrais Method is not a treatment, adjustment, or exercise program. Instead, it is based on decades of research in physics, neuroscience, biomechanics, learning theory, and human development to give you the means to help yourself.

There is more information on their site about ATM (Awareness Through Movement) and FI (Functional Integration) as well as Professional Training.

Imagine a world where you can tap into the health experiences of millions of people – and translate these into an action plan with the support of expert patients and health organizations.

We are the world’s largest social network for health, with 1 million members across the globe, and growing. We connect people with the same health conditions, where they can share experiences and get answers to questions about their chronic conditions and wellbeing needs – empowering people with knowledge for enhanced self-care.

Find Open Online Communities A-Z Link: https://healthunlocked.com/communities

We work with nonprofits to create patient-centric online communities

By providing a safe space to give and receive peer support, find tools and resources to inform about their condition(s) and access to local services, people are more equipped to manage their health than ever before.

Our social network is made up of over 700 condition-specific communities that are moderated by health experts such as the British Heart Foundation, the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America and the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society. So when people search for information on HealthUnlocked, they can rest assured that it is reliable and trustworthy. Our platform is also home to online support groups for popular NHS programs such as NHS Weight Loss, Couchto5k and Strength & Flex. Learn about our solutions for patient organizations.

Changing the way healthcare can be delivered

We are committed to becoming the most trusted global self-care ecosystem. Our vision for the future is to extend our value to cover every disease, illness and chronic condition that exists and offer education, peer support and relevant services to every person with an on-going health concern.

By driving the convergence between self-care and clinical care, we offer a new model of healthcare focused on patients themselves as a solution to the global healthcare crisis. Learn how we work with the NHS England.

Do you experience voices, visions, have intense energy and/ or navigate through exploratory states of consciousness?

You are certainly not alone! In this group we will explore the significance of these experiences together in an open, non-judgmental way. We welcome and highly encourage the pondering and meaning of these experiences on an individual level. Are these experiences spiritual, supernatural, psychological, metaphysical, biological or something else? In this group we have the wonderful opportunity to learn from each other what these experiences could mean and hear multiple perspectives from different vantage points.

This is a free group. No referral is needed. Supportive friends and/or family are welcome.

Online Meetings

Join a meeting that fits your schedule!

Click on “Join Zoom Meeting” to launch the meeting.

Feel free to be on camera or not for these meetings.

** Attendees: Please observe the same meeting etiquette as you would in face-to-face meetings. Here are tips:

  1. Mute yourself when not speaking unless the Host calls you to all un-mute.

  2. Zoom has a “Raise Hand” feature to support sharing (see below) or send a private chat to the leader to share.

  3. The Host is allowed to disable the chat feature if there is too much cross talk.

  4. If you are concerned about anonymity, feel free to change your name by clicking on the ellipses (…) in the window of your personal image/icon.  Select “Rename” to do this.

  5. You can also turn off your camera for anonymity.

  6. Some hosts join early or stay after for community time.  Join in if yours does!

    To raise your hand in a Zoom meeting, click the “Raise Hand” icon on the bottom left of the Zoom window. When you click the Raise Hand icon, a hand icon will appear next to your name that will notify the host your hand is raised. You will also see the hand icon turn green. When you want to lower your hand, you can click the hand icon again and your hand will be lowered. If the raise hand feature is disabled you will not see the option to raise your hand.

Don’t forget about time zone changes… 11 am EST/10 am CST/9 am MST/ 8 am PST.

OLGA – OnLine Gamers Anonymous – Virtual Online Chats – Weekdays and Weekends @ Online via Chat
Aug 2 all-day

On Line Gamers Anonymous (OLGA)

Excerpt(s) from Website:

Our Mission Statement is: “On-Line Gamers Anonymous® is a group of people sharing their experience, strengths and hope to help each other recover from problems resulting from excessive game playing.”

On-Line Gamers Anonymous® was founded by Liz Woolley in May of 2002 after her son, Shawn, committed suicide as a direct result of being addicted to an on-line game. Liz was soon joined by Ron Jaffe (Diggo McDiggity), a recovering gamer. They supported each other as the fellowship grew.

The OLGA® and OLG-Anon Recovery Fellowships and Outreach, are divisions of OLGA®/OLG-Anon (On-Line Gamers Anonymous®) World Services, Inc.. OLGA® and OLG-Anon Fellowships are dedicated to offering support to addicted gamers (OLGA), their families (OLG-Anon) so they can heal and recover from problems resulting from the newest “drug of choice” – excessive video game playing. Outreach is our public service division that assists in providing information to educate about the dangers of excessive game playing. The Outreach division assists in providing an extensive list of professional resources who provide services for those affected by excessive video gaming,video gaming addiction or a video gaming disorder. Outreach also helps raise funds to continue our mission.

We offer support. Our community is open to all who seek support. We are not an activist group, nor do we sponsor such organizations. Our message forums are available to all, regardless of bias or opinion. We are here to share our experience, strength and hope and encourage peer-to-peer support. Family and friends are invited to share their experience, compassion, and wisdom. Every day we accumulate and add to our collection of information related to excessive gaming and the issues it creates. Sharing this with our visitors is a primary goal.

…Our organization is staffed by many people, who at one time or another have considered themselves excessive gamers or have had their lives affected by an excessive gamer.

RECOVERY DHARMA ONLINE

We are a group of Recovery Dharma Members who use technology to meet up with each other from around the world. We make an effort to stay in contact with each other between meetings to form Spiritual Friendships.

We get together online for meetings, workshops, and inter-sangha business. Some of us stay around after the closing to hangout in the Virtual Parking Lot for fellowship. For some of us, this is our primary recovery community. For others, it supplements the meetings available to us locally.

Recovery Dharma Online organizes daily meetings accessible via computer, smartphone, or dial-in. Together we meditate, study Buddhist teachings, and support each other on our paths to sobriety and peace.

SWC – Social Work Career – #StandWithAAPI – Anti-Asian Racism Resources for Social Workers and Therapists

#StandWithAAPI

Anti-Asian Racism Resources for Social Workers and Therapists

Sadly, hate bias incidents such as verbal harassment and physical assault against Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in the United States have risen during the Covid-19 pandemic due to misconceptions and misinformation about the spread of the virus.

To assist in the endeavor of becoming anti-racist, this post provides some steps we can all take to help break the cycle of racism and violence, and a round-up of various anti-AAPI racism resources to help us become better informed about our AAPI communities. These include resources especially for individuals experiencing Anti-Asian/American harassment, as well as webinars, books, articles, anti-racism guides/toolkits, videos, podcasts, and worthwhile organizations to support.

Please feel free to share any additional helpful finds in the comments section of this post.

A safe place to talk. A safe place to listen.

People grieving a death often feel like no one understands what they’re going through. And truthfully, no one’s grief is exactly same. But people tell us the help they appreciate most comes from sharing with others who are also grieving a death.

Our children’s support groups are designed around age, type of death, and the connection to the person who died. Parent/adult caregiver groups run at the same time as the children’s support groups. Around 500 children and 350 adult family members come to our groups each month. Each person decides how long he or she wants to be at The Dougy Center.

In the groups, there is no right or wrong way to be. Nobody will tell you it’s time to move on. Or that an emotion you have is wrong or inappropriate. Here, through talking and listening, you’re free to find hope and comfort in your own personal way. Children can express themselves through play, music, art, games, and sharing.

Our unique approach, using peer group support to help people discover their own way through grief, has made The Dougy Center a worldwide leader in the field. More than 500 programs based on our model now thrive in the U.S., Canada, Africa, Australia, Europe and Japan. Our guidebooks assist parents, schools and others who deal with children affected by death, and our children’s activity books provide them an outlet for expression.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Dougy Center is hosting virtual support groups for our bereavement and Pathways programs. If your family lives in the Portland metro area and would like to participate, please call 503.775.5683 or email help@dougy.org.

At The Dougy Center we realize that:

  • Grief is a natural reaction to death;
  • Each individual has a natural capacity to heal from loss;
  • Duration and intensity of grief are unique to each individual; and
  • Caring and acceptance assist in the healing process.

Orientation

Orientation lasts approximately one hour. During that time, adults and children/teens are broken into separate groups where we explain the program. Questions are answered, and everyone is given a tour. Children and teens watch a Dougy Center video produced by the TV program 20/20. The adults learn about how to have a child or teen begin participation at the Center and receive all the application forms. Coming to an orientation does not mean the child/teen becomes a participant. We encourage the adults to allow the children and teens to make the final decision for themselves.

LYGHT Groups – Listening and Led by Youth in Foster Care: Grief, Hope, and Transitions

At the core of the L.Y.G.H.T. program, we aim to raise awareness about how grieving youth in foster care experience marginalization on various levels, create ways to provide trauma-informed peer support to youth in foster care, and promote the importance of moving the child welfare community toward a grief-informed holistic model of care.

“It helps you to feel like you are not alone. They are also going through something as well and you can help each other.” – L.Y.G.H.T. program participant

Warmline – GA – Gamblers Anonymous and more – (855) 222-5542 – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Aug 2 all-day

 

GAMBLERS ANONYMOUS is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from a gambling problem.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling.

There are no dues or fees for Gamblers Anonymous membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Gamblers Anonymous is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. Our primary purpose is to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.”

From the Gamblers Anonymous Website:

Types of Meetings

Closed Meeting:
Only those with a gambling problem, or those who think they may have a gambling problem, and have a desire to stop gambling, may attend and participate.

Modified Closed Meeting:
Same as a “Closed Meeting” but the members would vote to include certain groups such as health professionals, guests attending with first time members, and persons with other addictions in need of a meeting

Open Meeting:
Spouses, family, and friends of the gambler are welcome
to attend and observe the meeting.

Responding to Extreme Heat For the Disabled
Disability Rights of Oregon warns that extreme weather can be threat to people living it disabilities.  Use these links to learn more about the risks and respond to them.

Disability Rights of Oregon provides tips to help the disabled to stay safe and healthy

Drink a lot of water!

Many people don’t realize how much faster they get dehydrated when the heat is so intense. Some people have disabilities that may keep them from realizing how dehydrated they are. Avoid alcohol and energy drinks, as they can actually dehydrate you further.

The coolest place in your home

Find the coolest place to be in your home. Downstairs will usually be cooler than upstairs. Shadier places will be cooler than sunny places. Consider pulling curtains over windows facing the sun.

If you don’t have a home with air-conditioning, consider going to a public place with air conditioning, like a library, shopping center, theater, or other public building. Many public buildings around the state are open as cooling centers.

Make backup plan

Make a backup plan to stay cool. Make a plan for what to do if your home gets too hot. Even if you have air-conditioning, have a plan for what to do if the power goes out. Cooling centers and other public buildings are a good alternative.

Check the temperature in your home regularly

If you’re staying in a home without air-conditioning, use a thermometer or your thermostat to check the temperature in your home regularly. Some people who have disabilities and some people who are older have difficulty telling when their home has gotten too hot. As the temperature climbs, consider using a cooling center or other air-conditioned place for relief.

Beware parked cars!

Do not sit in a parked car, do not leave children in a parked car, and do not leave service animals, emotional support animals, or pets in a parked car! In intense heat and sunlight, it is not safe to stay in a parked car for any period of time, except with the engine on and the air-conditioning running.

The hottest part of the day

In Oregon, the hottest part of the day is usually between noon and evening. Take special care to stay cool and limit your activity during that time. If you choose to be active, early morning and late evening may be better times to be active. Letting in cool air overnight can help keep your home from overheating.

Check in with your network

If you live alone, check in with family, friends, neighbors, and other supports regularly throughout the weekend.

Extreme Heat Can Make Asphalt Dangerous to animals and people!

Even under normal, temperatures can heat asphalt surfaces to and cause contact burns on the feet of animals and people. At only 87 Degrees, asphalt can heat to 143 Degrees Fahrenheit! But at 125 Degrees, skin can be destroyed in 60 seconds. Take steps to protect your animals feet and your own and to avoid heat stroke. Avoid walking during the hottest parts of the day, and make sure your dogs and other animals have access to shade and clean water.
