Thousands of first responders will now have the opportunity to

heighten their emergency preparedness skills in the latest experiential training and educational resource center around as Owens Community College’s Center for Emergency Preparedness formally opens the doors to a new $3.2 million Training and Operations Center.

The new facility will serve as the “hub” for the Center for Emergency Preparedness and provide first responders with expanded opportunities for real-world, scenario-based training highlighted by the only indoor emergency services virtual training system in the country.

“Owens Community College’s new Training and Operations Center is a welcome addition to the Center for Emergency Preparedness and fulfills a need for a rather expansive facility to conduct year-round training within a climate controlled setting,” said Michael Cornell, Owens Director of the Center for Emergency Preparedness. “Providing first responders with the highest level in realistic training is essential to preparing them for actual emergency situations. This new Training and Operations Center reinforces the College’s commitment to meeting the emergency preparedness education and training needs throughout the region and beyond by offering experiential learning resources unlike any other facility in the country.”

 
Council to vote on letting Gulch talk about Brown

Oregon City Council on Monday will vote on whether to amend part of a separation agreement the city made with former Police Chief Tom Gulch that prevents him from speaking about whether he investigated a woman’s complaints in 2002 against Officer Jeff Brown, Mayor Marge Brown’s son.

Nichole Rhoades alleged in 2002 that she had sex several times with Brown while he was on duty.

The Oregon Police Department this year looked into the allegations, as well as complaints made by other women, during an internal affairs investigation of Brown that found him guilty of repeatedly using the Law Enforcement Automated Data System (LEADS) to gain information about an ex-girlfriend, Tanya Hernandez, over a two-year period.

 
Council was unaware of restriction on Gulch

Some members of Oregon City Council were surprised to learn that a separation agreement the city made with former Police Chief Tom Gulch in 2007 included a clause that prohibits him from publicly saying or doing anything that will portray the city administration in a negative light.

Those who were on council at the time remember approving the agreement, but say the administration withheld the clause from their review.

“When we voted on Gulch’s package to go, I do not remember that being in the paperwork that we looked over,” said Councilman Bill Myers, adding that he will vote on Monday to lift the restriction on Gulch so he can talk about whether he conducted an investigation in 2002 of a woman’s complaints about Officer Jeff Brown, Mayor Marge Brown’s son.
