NEWSY NOTES

FOG PROCEDURES


Fog procedures begin when fog rolls in.  If the fog rolls in after inmate movement begins, e.g. workers going to work assignments, group activities, chow, etc. delays occur.  The men have to be escorted to/from the places they need to be.  Then, once the men are returned to their buildings, a count has to be conducted.  No further movement occurs until the count has cleared.

There are a lot of holiday activities going on in the central valley at this time of year. 

 Look under the Events/Dining/Lodging/ATM tab for local events.

It's that time of year once again...  

VSP will be having lots of activities this holiday season.  


The Elfs (our loved ones) are busy at work making decorations for the visiting rooms.  They should be ready by December 9th.


Plan on having pictures taken by the festive backdrops or the beautiful artwork.

Christmas trees will be delivered the weekend before Christmas.  The paper ornaments are available to start decorating the tree. This year there are tons of crayons.  Packages of four colors will be available to all.

On December 22nd bring the kiddos for a fun filled day of cookie decorating.

Holiday dinners will be served in the 

vending machines on Christmas Day

7385 FORM
(What is this and why do I need it?)

Do you have a 7385 in place?  If NOT it is very important that you have your loved one sign one.  Actually have your loved one sign three copies.  You can take these forms in to visiting for them to sign.  You have to bring the signed copies out with you and mail two of the signed copies to your loved one.  Of the three copies one is for you, one for your loved one, and one for their doctor to have in place in their medical records.  This way you have original signatures on all the copies since things get lost so easily.  


You will NOT be accessed any medical information through VSP medical or the Medical Receiver's office if you do NOT have one in your loved ones medical file.  Please do this ASAP as you never know when a medical issue could arise.   If your loved one is healthy and has no medical issues, you still need to have one in place just in case something were to happen.  You do NOT want to wait until then when you are already in a panic on what to do.  So, please be safe and have this form in place.  If you check the correct box the form will be in their file until they are released.
