PORT LUDLOW EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT NEW DIRECTOR APPOINTED
The PLVC is pleased to announce Danille Turissini has been appointed Director, Emergency Management. Danille has been a Port Ludlow resident for 15 years and has spent 33 years in grassroots organizing. She was also a candidate for Washington State Senate in 2016. She is a former journalist and currently the sole proprietor of 4th Branch Strategies, which offers people-to-people networking solutions for building strong community relationships. Her passion has been to inform, empower, energize and engage citizens in a lifestyle of advocacy and community bridge building. It is exactly those elements that she will bring to the Emergency Management (EM) activities here in Port Ludlow. Starting with revitalizing the Block Captain program, which is the foundation of all our EM programs, Danille will be expanding the participation base and activities that are involved in having our community be prepared for the smaller events such as power outages and planning for larger events such as earthquakes that could be extremely disruptive. Danille will chair the PLVC Emergency Management Committee which has Jay Bakst, Tink Green, Pat Lohry and Ginny Munger as members.
Port Ludlow Fire & Rescue will be hosting a wildland firefighting training field day at the closed Trail Nine Golf Course/Timberton Loop trail on Saturday, June 17, beginning at 8 AM until 3 PM. The parking lot off Timberton Drive will be closed to the public to allow fire crews a place to stage their apparatus.
Any questions or concerns could be sent to Port Ludlow Fire and Rescue Chief Brad Martin At 360-437-2236.
Thank you for your cooperation and for allowing your fire service to use local properties for training purposes.

This guide covers what to do now to prepare for an emergency event with checklists and suggestions. In addition, it gives step-by-step instructions on what to do when an event takes place. Topics include water storage, utility shut-offs, food, sanitation, out-of-area contacts, and resources to local, state and federal resources for more detailed information. Efforts are underway to obtain copies of the printed Guide, but in the interim, copies are available to review at the Bay and Beach Clubs.

The SBCA has been informed of a burglary that occurred just outside of South Bay yesterday afternoon (a daytime hours home intrusion/burglary), while the Owners were away from their home.
The Owners (victims) are Associate Members of the SBCA and wanted everyone in Port Ludlow to be aware of the criminal activity that has occurred and to encourage Owners to be alert and careful.
The thieves kicked in the home’s front door to gain entry. Be alert; reports of suspicious activity in our community are increasing.
