Welcome to the Davis County Citizen Corps Council Blog.

We meet monthly at the Davis County Sheriff's Office on the first Saturday of the month at 9:00am. Come to the door on the north side of the building (by the helipad) and go to the door. If you arrive within 15 minutes before the start of the meeting, someone will be there to let you in (please identify yourself as coming for the Citizen Corps meeting and your name). If you are late, you will need to call to get into the meeting. Currently the Secretary is Jason Meservy, his phone is 801-518-8704.

Do You Smell Something?

When power outages occur after severe weather, using alternative sources of power can cause carbon monoxide (CO) to build up in your home and poison your family. CO is a colorless, odorless gas created by burning fuel when using portable generators, gas ranges, burning wood or by running your car. 

While hundreds of people die in the U.S. each year from accidental CO poisoning, this tragedy can be prevented.  If you don’t have a battery-powered or battery back-up CO detector in your home, install one as soon as possible and check it every six months. You should also follow these safety tips:

·         Do not run your car inside a garage that is attached to your home, even if the garage door is open to the outside;

·         Have your heating system, water heater and other gas, oil or coal burning appliances serviced by a qualified technician each year; and

·         Never heat your house with a gas oven.

Since you can’t see or smell carbon monoxide, it is important to recognize the most common symptoms of CO poisoning. If you think you are experiencing CO poisoning, you should get fresh air and seek medical attention immediately!

Animals in Disasters

Attention CERT Coordinators:

If you would like to add the Animals in Disaster component to your CERT class, Tracy Roddom with Davis County Animal Care and Control is willing to come out and teach the unit. All too often we forget about the animals and how they will be impacted by a disaster. Take the time in your next CERT class to add this important element to your curriculum.

For more info or to arrange a class, please contact Tracy at 801-444-2219 or troddom@daviscountyutah.gov
