President's Message

Summer is quickly approaching and things are definitely heating up here at Ausland! We’ve got great projects starting up in Eugene, Brookings and Cottage Grove to join our ongoing work in Coquille, Grants Pass and other locations around the state. Let’s all work hard to understand the meaning of what success means to each client and put that into practice each and every day.
Last week, Aaron and I met with our three directors for a leadership retreat. We made some remarkable progress and set exciting goals for each department and for the company as a whole. We are excited to share with the rest of the leadership team at another retreat in the fall.
Everyone is working diligently and very hard to continue to make Ausland Group a success. We are proud of each of you and please know we recognize and greatly value all of you. To all the fathers at Ausland, I hope you have a beautiful weekend spent with family and friends. To echo Nancy’s message, we value the Real Men of Ausland Group!

Celebrating the Men at Ausland
By Nancy
This month we celebrate Father’s Day. Last month I wrote about celebrating women; this month I want to touch on the importance of men because of the 74 Ausland Group employees, 63 members of our team are men. That’s 85 percent! A recent article on The Good Men Project website talks about, “What Makes a Real Man.”
Here are a few examples I would like to share with everyone:
  • Real men respect women Real men are equal parts of both strong and soft
  • Real men stand up for what they believe in, regardless of what others think
  • Real men show their true hearts
  • Real men defend the innocent
  • Real men are go-getters
  • Real men know the difference between things they want to do and things they must do Real men aren’t arrogant or prideful
  • Real men are guideposts for their families Real men aren't afraid to learn and grow even when things are hard
  • Real men are fighters. They stick up for what they believe in
  • Real men are dads, husbands, uncles, sons, grandfathers, brothers, friends and co-workers
  • Real men know how to be gentlemen
I have worked with more men and have more male friends/family members in my life, so I know all types of men. What’s nice at Ausland Group is I get to say and be proud that I work with 63 Real Men! From this woman’s point of view, thank you to all of you. We appreciate all the Men of Ausland!
SAFETY: AVOID SUNSTROKE
Did you ever come close to passing out because of the heat? If you've ever had this experience or have seen another person in this condition, you can appreciate the seriousness of sunstroke.
People who are exposed to too much sun will complain of a severe headache, their face will be red, their skin hot and dry. They will not be sweating, the pulse will be strong and rapid, and their temperature will go to 106 degrees or above. They usually become unconscious if the case is at all severe. No two people have the same physical resistance to heat. Wearing heavy or tight-fitting clothing can compound the problem so it is important to wear the right kind of clothing on hot days.
The American Red Cross on sunstroke: The cause is direct exposure to the sun's rays. To treat the condition, get the victim into the shade and remove excess clothing. Lay the patient on his back with head and shoulders somewhat elevated. Apply cold to the head -- wet cloths, ice bags, ice, etc. – to cool the body. DO NOT give them stimulants. If the patient is taken to a hospital in an ambulance, treatment should be continued during transportation.
When temperatures outside rise to 95 degrees or above, our bodies can no longer be cooled by the outside air. The higher the outside temperature, the greater the danger from sunstroke. In fact, too much exposure to the sun can be as dangerous as too much exposure to toxic gases, not to mention the painful effects of sunburn.
About 25 percent of the most severe cases of sunstroke die. The thing to do in hot weather is to use common sense. Keep out of the direct rays of the sun as much as possible, wear head covering, dress in light clothing, take salt tablets to replace the body salt lost in sweating, and avoid alcoholic beverages. Following these precautions in hot weather will save you a lot of grief.
