Supervisor Curt Hagman at Your Service

Supervisor Curt Hagman Fourth District Supervisor Curt Hagman’s experience in community service began many years ago when he and his wife Grace became active members of the PTA in the Chino Valley Unified School District in support of their children Jonathan and Elizabeth. Supervisor Hagman then became a Parks & Recreation Commissioner in Chino Hills before he was elected to the Chino Hills City Council in 2004. In 2008, Curt Hagman served as Mayor of Chino Hills before being elected to represent California’s 55th Assembly District in November of that year. As an Assemblyman, Curt served on five committees and was elected to the Assembly leadership by his peers.

In 2014, Curt Hagman was elected to the San Bernardino Board of Supervisors to represent the cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Montclair, Ontario, and the southern portion of Upland. “You are the reason I ran for public office, and serving you is my top priority,” noted Hagman, “Please let me know how I may be of service.”

IEHP is one of the first plans in California to participate in Cal MediConnect (CMC). CMC offers coordinated medical, behavioral health, and long-term services and supports for people with both Medicare and Medi-Cal.

IEHP participates in Cal MediConnect, a major component of California’s new Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI). The program is for people with both Medicare and Medi-Cal who will receive coordinated medical, behavioral health, long-term care, and Home-and Community-Based Services (HCBS) through a single health plan.

The goal is to improve care by integrating the following healthcare services:
  • Medicare and Medi-Cal benefits
  • Long-term care
  • Behavioral health
  • Home and community-based services (HCBS) such as In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS), Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS) and Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP).

IEHP estimates that about 50,000 will join IEHP for the Medi-Cal benefits and more than 20,000 new people will join for their Medicare benefits as well.

Each County Supervisor appoints two business members to sit on the 19 member Board. “Open government has always been a priority of mine” noted Hagman “All qualified residents of the Fourth District deserve fair consideration for all my appointments and I look forward to receiving your application.” In addition to requirements posted for the position, Supervisor Hagman is requiring the selected appointee’s business or organization be barred from receiving any WDB services to prevent potential conflicts of interest.

By law, business members of the WDB must provide employment opportunities for members of the public and must participate in one or more local business organizations or trade associations.

El Niño

Be Prepared, the “Godzilla of El Niños” will most likely hit Southern California this winter. The large amount of rain that meteorologists are predicting can result in flooding and mudslides which means that some residents may face evacuation. The San Bernardino County Fire Department has prepared a list of items for families to assemble a disaster supply kit; this should include at least these items:

  • Water. Have at least 3 gallons per person in airtight containers. Replace it every six months. Chlorine bleach or iodine tablets are great to purify water by putting eight drops per gallon if necessary.
  • Food. Enough to last you at least a week.
  • First aid kit. Keep it well stocked especially with bandages and disinfectants.
  • Flashlights. Keep it besides your bed and in accessible locations. Also have extra batteries.
  • Radio. Keep a battery operated radio handy, it will be the best source of information along with extra batteries.
  • Special needs. Have at least a week’s supply of infant food, pet food, and medication.
  • Tools. You should have an adjustable pipe wrench to turn off water and gas.
  • Fire extinguisher. Teach each family member how to use it. It should be suitable for all types of fire.
  • Cooking sources. Store an outdoor camping stove and a few pots.
  • Extras. You should have extra clothes, blankets, shoes, personal items and money.
The heavy rains may also cause flooded roadways. Here are some tips to keep in mind to be safe while driving during storms:

  • Do not drive where water is covering the road. You can be stranded or trapped. Also, parts of the road may be washed out.
  • Do not try to cross waters of unknown depth. The water may be much deeper than it looks. Avoid dips and low spots.
  • If your car stalls in a flooded area, abandon it as soon as possible. Floodwater can rise rapidly and sweep a car and its occupants away.

For more information regarding El Niño, or other emergencies, contact the San Bernardino County Fire Department at (909) 387-5950 or go to their website: www.sbcfire.org.
