Hello all,
I'm asking for your help in a contest. My photo was chosen as one of 10 finalists in the Statesman Journal Colors of Autumn contest. Popular vote between now and Nov 15 chooses the winner. People can vote once every 24 hours. If you are willing to help, visit the "Our Oregon Outdoors" Facebook page and look for the 11/7 contest post. (http://woobox.com/nd95an)
Thanks for your help!

An image taken in my neighborhood this month. The color is real - not Photoshopped.

And now for something completely different, just to prove I have a life outside disaster planning. Photography is my hobby, so I'll try to post an occasional photo. You can see more on my Flickr photostream at http://www.flickr.com/photos/sheila_sund/

I'm finally getting around to blogging a bit more regularly again. I've just been too busy "doing" preparedness stuff to actually write about it. Here's a post on an important idea that most people don't get. What are the truly important hazards for your area, and how can you figure it out?

I seem to be falling into the habit of holiday specific blog posts. This is more safety than disaster, which seemed appropriate. We are inundated with firework safety messages, so I wondered how bad the risk really is. What I found is that there are several other Fourth of July safety risks that leave fireworks behind. Are you safe?

I'm looking for Denver area people in emergency management, preparedness, training, or disaster research in general. My daughter is living there (4th year student University of Denver - geography major), and is interested in potential volunteer or internship opportunities in this field.  As you can imagine, from living in my house, her knowledge base is pretty good. Any connections out there?

Hey everyone - I'm back from a month of travels, and then catching up. Here's a blog post from today. I'd love to see what other emergency volunteers, management,  and response think of it.

Sorry for the lack of posts and activity lately. I'm on vacation for two weeks, and as always the week before a trip was unbearably busy with no time for blogging (even minimal time for things like sleep). Hope this makes up for my absence a bit!
