Jim Uruburu

Before I get down to business I have to tell you a cute story. Ruthie Vache RAN the bakery here for many, many moons before retiring. We miss her still, that bright red hair, that laugh. Irreplaceable. So she was back in town visiting her son, Susan River Fire Chief Jim Uruburu on her 70th birthday. Can you believe our Ruthie is 70? A lovely little party hosted by Jim, his lovely wife Jenni and Ruthie’s daughter Leslie Whipple, well, they had an actual BURN PERMIT for the candles on her cake! Too much! It was a blast, always a pleasure to be with old friends and their families.

Now down to business. Did you know our Lassen County Public Health Department has a Emergency Preparedness Team consisting of Jim Uruburu, Maryann Kiar, Alice Robinson and so many other of the good people at our LoCaL health department!? They do! AND they are all about Get Ready- Stay Ready. In an emergency situation the team would work with OES and ALL of our public entities would come together as volunteers to pull off needed shelters and such. As Jim pointed out it used to be that neighbors helped neighbors, we were much more self sufficient. I think we’ve lost touch a little bit with the basics that could be necessary in an emergency like;

First aid kit
Evacuation plan
Pet emergency supplies
Is your car ready if you became stranded? Where do you keep your important documents? There is so much I realize I’m not prepared for! Public Health has these terrific pamphlets with tons of great information and they’ll be available right here at the market on October 15th when Jeremy Germ will be here giving Flu Shots from 1:30-4:30! Jim Uruburu will be here to talk about preparedness and to answer any questions!

You gotta see this picture of Jim on his first day at the new job. His daughter put together all the essentials ~

Be sure to add this to your calendar! Hometown Healthy!
