HAVE a Safe EASTER HOLIDAY WEEKEND
We are faced with unpreceded times dealing with the Covid#19 pandemic. We cannot let our guard down!
The Easter holiday normally would be a time to celebrate with your family and friends; however, with this pandemic hovering upon us we must stay vigilant and practice social distancing & no social gatherings or recreational activities (with those that do not reside in your home with you).
Park playground equipment and ball courts are off limit. Please do not allow your children to play on the equipment as it can pose risk of spreading this virus.
Find other ways to communicate with your extended family and friends i.e. social media; share pictures, videos, facetime, Instagram, etc.) Happy Easter!!
STAY HOME! WASH YOUR HANDS! COVER YOUR COUGH!

INCIDENT COMMAND TEAM SYSTEMS INFORMATION
The ICS team would like to provide you with a status update for the past several weeks the ICS Team was activated to address and implement emergency operations initiatives. The Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized hierarchical structure that allows for a cooperative response by multiple agencies, both within and outside of government, to organize and coordinate response activities without compromising the decision-making authority of local command.
The LDF Team consists of members with various backgrounds in National Incident Command Training, Emergency Response, Medical/Health, Military, Financial-Property Procurement, Administrative, I.T. Communications, Safety, Environmental, Law Enforcement, Legal, Facility Management, Program Management as well as Tribal Council representation.
Each section is charged with responsibilities to coordinate, develop, obtain and manage operations, resources and implement emergency operations for this pandemic. Each section also coordinates and participates in County, State, Federal and local government/agencies, school initiatives for resources- equipment & supplies, facilities, funding, communications, staffing-volunteers and overall coordination to be prepared as much as possible. There has been a tremendous amount of time and effort by not only this team but by other staff, employees, community members, directors, mangers each and every day. These efforts do not go unnoticed and we need to work together even more when Covid-19 hits our community.
We can if time is available provide more details on all the I C S section aspects. Thank you for your patience. LDF ICS TEAM
