    First up, the four wheel drive quad drivers took their shot at the mud.  Drivers took their rides down the pit spraying mud and water from their tires. Participants Richard Cooper, Donnie Wheeler, Tim Brown, Brad Crick, Ethan Barton, Shown Auxier, Matthew Gullett and Michael Payton took two runs through the pit trying for a time that would take them to the top of the leader's board. In the end, Donnie Wheeler took the win with a time of 6.14 seconds through the pit, and Gullett placed second with a time of 6.61 seconds.
    In the second division of the evening, two wheel drive quad drivers took their chances in the muck. Richard Cooper, Ryan Riley, Donnie Wheeler, Ryan Hobbs, Levi Panguburn, Shawn Wilson, Shawn Auxier, Jason Blevins, Michael Payton and Travis Jett revved up their engines and navigated their way through. Donnie Wheeler rode his way to the win with a time of 7.45 seconds through the pit.  Cooper followed in second with a time of 8.05 seconds.

Thursday, 30 July 2009 00:00

    Emergency Responders Todd Webb and Doug Bentfield from the Clark County Health Department, recently completed Homeland Security training at the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP), located in Anniston, Alabama. The CDP is operated by the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and is the only federally-charted Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) training facility in the nation.
    “Clark County is fortunate to have individuals to further their education and help make Clark County a safer place in the event of an emergency. The Clark County Health Department has someone on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. We are dispatched through central alarm,” Webb explained.
    The CDP provides federally-funded, interdisciplinary training for emergency responders from across the United States and U.S. Territories, for 10 responder disciplines: Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Service, Fire Service, Governmental Administrative, Hazardous Materials, Healthcare, Law Enforcement, Public Health, Public Safety Communications and Public Works.
    Healthcare and Public Health training is conducted at the CDP’s Noble Training Facility, the nation’s only hospital facility dedicated to training hospital and healthcare professionals in disaster preparedness and response.
    Many training courses culminate at the CDP’s Chemical, Ordnance, Biological and Radiological Training Facility, the nation’s only facility featuring civilian training exercises in a true toxic environment, using chemical agents. The advanced hands-on training enables responders to effectively prevent, respond to and recover from real-world incidents involving acts of terrorism and other hazardous materials.
    Responders attending CDP training are selected from the nation’s 11 million emergency responders. Training at the CDP ensures that responders gain critical skills and confidence to be better prepared to effectively respond to local incidents or potential WMD incidents.
    Additional information about CDP training programs can be found at
    FEMA coordinates the federal government’s role in preparing for, preventing, mitigating the effects of, responding to and recovering from all domestic disasters, whether natural or man-made, including acts of terror.

    On Tuesday, August 4, neighborhoods throughout Charlestown are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 26th Annual National Night Out crime and drug-prevention event.
    National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the Charlestown Neighborhood Block Watch, will involve over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world.
    Residents in neighborhoods throughout Charlestown are asked to lock their doors on August 4 from 6 to 9 p.m., turn on the outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.
    The Charlestown Neighborhood Block Watch and the City of Charlestown are set to hold a neighborhood rally at Greenway Park on Tuesday evening, August 4. With activities for both children and adults, the rally is meant to encourage Charlestown residents to become more active in the community and encourage participation in the city’s crime-reduction initiatives.
    The event will feature several activities, including watermelon-eating contests, inflatable rides, corn hole, a rock-climbing wall and a balloon toss. Hot dogs, chips, popsicles and watermelon will be available for purchase from the concession stand at the rally. Emergency responders, including both police and firefighters, will be at the rally to answer questions about the Neighborhood Block Watch and give tips on safety and emergency preparedness.
    “Our Block Watch program has been a success so far, but we’re looking to expand the program and make it even better,” Mayor’s Assistant Ruthie Jackson said. “Members can participate as much or as little as they want. We want to build stronger neighborhoods.”
    Jackson coordinates the Neighborhood Block Watch Program for the City of Charlestown.
    In all, over 37 million people are expected to participate in National Night Out rallies throughout the world.
