Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Over the past week, our Benton County 4-H Volunteers and Members have been actively assisting the Benton County Fairgrounds with the caretaking of evacuated animals. Thank you to all the incredible 4-H families that have stepped in and supported those in need. We appreciate each and every one of you! We will continue to reach out if additional assistance is needed. #Oregonstrong #Oregon4h

IMPORTANT evacuation REMINDER!

Oregon uses the statewide “Ready, Set, Go” system to notify communities of need to evacuate due to a threat, or potential threat, to life and/or property:

Level 1: READY - Level 1 evacuations are an alert of an existing danger. Now is the time to “Get Ready”. Residents with special needs, or those with pets or livestock, should take note and prepare for relocating family members, pets and livestock. Refine your evacuation plans and gather the things you will need if you must evacuate.

Level 2: SET - Level 2 evacuations indicate there is a significant risk to your area. Now is the time to be set for immediate evacuation. Residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or designated area or with family/friends outside the area or be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.

Level 3: GO! - Level 3 means there is immediate danger. GO NOW! You are advised to evacuate immediately.

Once you have left the evacuated area, you will not be allowed to re-enter until the danger has passed. Preparing your family in advance of an emergency can mean the difference between being a disaster survivor or a victim. Make an action plan, prepare a “Go Kit", and communicate the plan with your family.

General information

4-H is an informal, educational youth development program conducted by the Oregon State University Extension Service, as authorized by federal and state statutes. In each county, local Extension staff has the authority to administer the program in accordance with University and Extension policy. Extension staff members work with advisory groups to provide a program that meets the county needs. Members belong to a club/group led by volunteer leaders and take part in club activities such as community service, educational tours, and fun events. In addition to club activities, there is a wide variety of enrichment activities offered at the county, state, national, and international levels. 4-H leaders are trained volunteers who have enrolled with the Extension Service. They present information provided by Extension and Oregon State University. Publications your child receives for use with 4-H projects are developed by Extension faculty or other resource people. 4-H helps young people discover and develop life skills and set personal goals. Involvement in project areas gives members the help needed to improve specific skills and explore new ones. Activities within clubs also introduce members to the importance of helping others through community service.
