June 26, 2020 - CERT Training on using PPE (by Arlyss Rothman) - Video

Training information on safely donning (putting on) and doffing (taking off) Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as masks and non-latex gloves, when responding to an emergency situation.  This training addresses additional cautions related to COVID-19.  The presentation was part of a June 16, 2020 CERT training Zoom meeting.

 

July 6, 2020 - ZOOM Meeting - "Three Model Local EPO Programs - Learn how they do it" - Video
Join Rossmoor EPO President Fran Gibson and three local EPO neighborhood teams who stand out as worthy trainers this month as they describe how they got started in their entry or street to prepare their neighbors to respond to an emergency.  

Colene and John Trinterud, Ted and Judy Bentley and Ralph Anthenian (with his team members John Walkinshaw and Andy Howard, M.D.)  will present their local programs and give us a sense of how they have used our Entry Coordinators’ Orientation and Guide to animate their planning and programming in their entries or streets. 
 

August 3, 2020 - ZOOM Webinar: "GRF Emergency Operations Plan" - PowerPoint slide show - pdf  - Video

Join EPO President Fran Gibson as she moderates an EPO Zoom webinar “Golden Rain Foundation’s Role in Emergency Preparedness and Recovery” starring Tim O’Keefe (GRF’s CEO) and Dennis Bell (GRF Public Safety Manager) as they discuss the recently adopted Emergency Operations Plan for the Foundation and the “limited” but vital role GRF plays in a disaster or emergency striking Tice Valley.   Our meeting will be hosted on GRF’s Zoom platform which will allow us to host up to 500 attendees (rather than our Zoom account which limits us to 100 attendees).  This will ensure residents can join this meeting along with our EPO members and EPO is grateful to GRF for allowing us to use their larger Zoom account.  Channel 28 will be recording the meeting for our community television station which opens up our GRF webinar to even more Rossmoor residents

October 30, 2020: "All About Telehealth" presented by Computer Club of Rossmoor.  YouTube video - NEW

All About Telehealth: The advent of Covid-19 has spurred explosive use of telehealth for getting medical attention and advice. Many patients now find it routine to “visit” their doctor or medical practitioner via a smartphone, tablet or computer. Others, however, may be skeptical of the concept or have concerns about how to use the requisite technology. Whether you’re an experienced user of telehealth or have never engaged in a computer-facilitated “house call,” the Computer Club of Rossmoor's October TechTogether will be of interest.  Presentation links and materials
