Twelve Mile City Ruck Tour Comes to Salem - Supports Wounded Veterans - 07/12/18

About the Salem City Ruck Tour:

25 AUG 2018; 1PM

Full Distance: 12 Miles / Second distance option: 4 Miles

START:  Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training / 4190 Aumsville Hwy SE, Salem, OR 97317

FINISH: Capitol Building in Salem.

DAY OF EVENT: 1PM - Kick off Ceremony (20-30 minutes at the MOST) @ DPSST

The City Ruck Tour 2018 (CRT18) is a series of 60 friendly Ruck Marches hosted by Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW) and led by select volunteers from OEW’s Masked Athlete Team and OEW’s Community Ambassador population. The purpose is to perform outdoor fitness in a group setting, while learning more about OEW’s mission, which is to Honor, Empower, and Motivate our nation’s wounded military veterans.

The pace for the 12 mile route will be moderate (approx. 18-20 minutes per mile), and the group will move together as one team. Short breaks will occur as needed. The amount of weight participants carry in their rucksack is up to them. However, each participant is required to have two (2) quarts of water, a reflective band or belt on the outside of your ruck, and a headlamp or flashlight. Kid friendly. Dog friendly.

There will be a Rally Point (RP) 3-4 miles from the End-Point, for any late comers to join in for the final miles.

Upon conclusion of the ruck march, there will be a “Circle of Trust” closing ceremony where you will hear a testimony directly from one of our Adaptive Athlete honorees, or participating military veteran. Prepare to be inspired. Everyone in the circle will receive a CRT patch, and probably a hug!

On-Line Video Illustrates New Communication Tool for Deaf or Hard of Hearing and Law Enforcement - 07/12/18

Thanks to the assistance of the City of Corvallis Police Department, Oregon Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (ODHHS), and the great team at Orange Media at Oregon State University, a short on-line video was created that illustrates the new visor and wallet cards that have been made available on a statewide basis to assist with communications between individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and law enforcement officers.

The video can be found at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/13rQRfNx1AKUAbHIKYljKzLxSFftXFTIq?usp=sharing

The wallet and visor cards were created through a partnership between the Oregon Association for the Deaf (OAD), the Public Safety Subcommittee of the Oregon Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Advisory Committee (ODHHS), and the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) . 

The cards, released two months ago, are being distributed by the Oregon Association for the Deaf, and their local and regional partners; the Oregon Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Program; local law enforcement agencies; and other organizations that work with deaf and hard of hearing Oregonians.

The on-going partnership between the three organizations, OAD, ODHHS and DPSST, has resulted in an update to the basic police curriculum used to train new law enforcement officers, and also deaf and hard of hearing role players who participate in scenario-based training at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem.

DPSST’s Director Eriks Gabliks said “we are very proud of the partnership we have with the Oregon Association for the Deaf, the Public Safety Subcommittee of the Oregon Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (ODHHS), and ODHHS.  Sadly, we know there have been some tragic interactions around the nation involving law enforcement officers and individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.  The visor and wallet cards were designed to serve as a tool to assist with communications between individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and city, county, state, tribal and university law enforcement officers around Oregon.”

Past President of OAD and current state employee with ODHHS, Chad A. Ludwig said “it take a village’s effort to promote public safety, awareness, and communication. The goal for two-sided visor and wallet communication card to minimize the barrier in the field and allow each member involved in any type of legal related incidents to build rapport. The communication card is not intended to replace trained, certified and qualified sign language interpreters in the legal system. This move is a positive step that improves safety for individuals who are Deaf, Deaf-Blind, Hard of Hearing and those with additional disability as well as law enforcement partners across Oregon.”

DPSST's Director Eriks Gabliks said "the video produced by the Corvallis Police Department, Oregon Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (ODHHS), and the team at Orange Media at Oregon State University gives a realist view of how communications between those who are deaf or hard of hearing and law enforcement are improved by the new wallet and visor cards. We are very appreciative of the work that was done to create this video and are glad to be a partner in the creation of this important communications tool."
