New Lake City Community Center Support Needed

Make Sure LC Community Center Funds Stay in the Budget

Council Member Juarez’s staff has encouraged Lake City to call all the city council members (except D. Juarez, our CM and primary sponsor) and leave a brief message to support the funding for the new Lake City Community Center. While all council members seem to be in support we need to help ensure it does not get cut.
Phone calls must be made today (11/15) or tomorrow (11/16)

“Stop the Bleed” Trainings & Stations Coming to D5

D5 Council Member, Debora Juarez Acknowledges “Stop the Bleed” Work

From Debora Juarez’s blog –

“Thank you to Sandy Motzer, Susanna Cunningham, Ann Forrest for all of their hard work to share Stop the Bleed training and tools in North Seattle! They installed life-saving “Stop the Bleed” stations in the Lake City Community Center and the Meadowbrook Community Center, thanks to a $5,000 Neighborhood Matching Fund award they applied for and won from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

#StopTheBleed is a nationwide campaign to train bystanders how to prevent people from bleeding to death in an emergency situation such as a shooting, car crash, or earthquake. I hope you never have to use the training, but it’s so important. In such a situation, bystanders become the first line of defense when an injured person might not be able to access trained medical professionals in time. Considering that a person can bleed to death in less than five minutes, this training is just a crucial as learning CPR.

“The more people who know how to prevent themselves from being a victim and the more people who know what to do to help stop life-threatening bleeding, the better.” I couldn’t agree more, Sandy!

Interested in attending a training? Find out more from the Lake City Emergency Communications Hub here: http://lcstb.blogspot.com/

You can also find Stop the Bleed trainings across Seattle and King County: https://bit.ly/2zCEzwF

The trainings are put on by many partners, including Seattle Office of Emergency Management, UW Medicine Harborview Medical Center, Public Health – Seattle & King County, Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center. #SurviveInD5 #D5 #Seattle”
