Workshop Agenda and Detail

Plan. Prevent. Prepare.

Economic resiliency starts with natural hazard mitigation. Chetco Bar Fire showed us how we as a community, could have been better prepared. Take this quick survey and help in the planning process.
Curry County Emergency Management is requesting community input on natural hazard concerns throughout the county. The survey responses will be recorded within the Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. This survey is available online at the link below and printed copies of the survey are also available at the Port Orford City Hall, Port of Port Orford, Curry County Library, Port of Gold Beach, Curry County Commissioner’s Office, Brookings City Hall, and Curry County Sheriff’s Department. For more information contact Monica Ward, Curry County Emergency Manager, at or (541) 247-3208.

Southwestern offers training to become a Community Health Worker
Coos Bay, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College, in partnership with Southwestern Oregon Workforce Investment Board, is offering an eight-week training session for the Community Health Worker Non-Credit Training Certificate, beginning January 10, 2022.
This course prepares students to serve as a Community Health Worker (CHW). The primary function of a CHW is to link the community with health and social service systems, to improve and maintain quality health and wellness. To accomplish this, the student learns how to access services such as advocacy, outreach, referrals, community education, mentoring, and social support.
The course addresses all requirements outlined by the Oregon Health Authority. Upon receiving a passing grade, students qualify to apply to the Oregon Health Authority (State of Oregon) for accreditation as a Community Health Worker. The certification is valid for three years.
This course uses a hybrid model of delivery. Students attend 16 classes via Zoom, totaling 40 contact hours. They then complete an additional 45 hours of online training outside of Zoom. The cost of the program is $799. For more information, please email Tina Carpenter at
