The Cordova volunteer fire department is looking to recruit and train additional community volunteers in emergency medical services and firefighting. If you're interested in becoming a first responder, the CVFD is looking for community oriented individuals interested in furthering their education and skills in order to help respond to emergencies. For more information, call 424-6117 and ask for Paul, or reach out to any of our local CVFD members.

The refuse department’s baler hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you have any questions about what can and can't be brought to the baler, and the fee structure, call 424-5600.

We all need to remember that tsunamis are a serious risk to Cordova. If the sirens sound, there will be emergency broadcasts on the radio, and information posted to the City Facebook pages.. Remember the designated local shelter is Mount Eccles elementary School, and it's a good idea for your family to talk about a plan for evacuation, keep a go-bag prepared, drive cautiously and safely, and pay attention to advisories. For more information, visit “ready <dot> gov <slash> tsunamis”.

The city reminds everyone to be mindful of our water and sewer system. Please remember that all baby wipes and cleaning wipes should be disposed of in the garbage can, NOT in the toilet. Soiled towels, rags, and napkins should also NOT be flushed. Flushing items down the toilet that don't belong there can cause clogs, which leads to damaged sewer lines, backups, and overflows. This means that sewage could flow out of manholes and into nearby yards, creeks, and storm drains. Thanks to everyone for helping to keep this system functioning.

A reminder to KLAM listeners that we've got an opportunity, if you would like, to expand special talk programming on Saturdays to kind of change things up a bit… long-form shows, NOT about politics, but about "better living" topics.  We already have “Today’s Homeowner” featuring home tips Saturdays from 11 to 1… but there are also shows to help you learn about new tech (computers, smartphones, etc) and get to know your existing tech better, car care and maintenance, hunting and fishing topics from around the country... that kind of thing.  If you’re interested in being a listener or sponsor of this kind of programming, call us at 3796 or email ‘saturday <at> cordovaradio <dot> com’.

Remember that our town meeting talk show is available any time you would like to be a guest, suggest a guest, or just have us cover a topic.  It’s an on demand program, we can record at your convenience, and then the air slot is weekdays in the 10am hour on KLAM. You can also send a letter for us to read if that’s better for you.  And note too that all our talk shows get archived on our Cordova TV YouTube Channel for listening later on demand.  That’s youtube.com/cordovatv.

Cordova's community emergency response team, or CERT, is a group of community members willing to volunteer in an emergency, learn about disaster preparedness, be ready for hazards that may impact the area, and train in basic disaster response skills. CERT members learn fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. To learn how you can join this team, and when trainings are available, email “fire 3 <at> City of Cordova <dot> net, or call 424-6117.  The next batch is scheduled for mid-July

We’ve been telling you that all our talk shows are archived for you on our CordovaTV youtube channel.  What you might not know is that if you subscribe to our channel (which is completely free) AND click the notification bell (also free), you’ll automatically get updates the moment a new post is ready.  So again, visit youtube.com/cordovatv, subscribe to the channel, and click the notification bell -- that will make you the first to know when we have new content for you.
