Preparedness "First"

Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love.”

As you prepare for emergencies, think about weather threats. The National Weather Service’s fall safety presentation offers tips on staying safe from all kinds of hazards.

Here’s a list of links to help you plan for any emergency all year long:

  • Make A Plan:  Talk to your friends and family about how you will communicate before,  during, and after a disaster. Update your plan based on  recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • Build A Kit:  Gather enough supplies to last for several days after a disaster for everyone in your home. Don’t forget to consider the unique needs each person or pet may have in case you have to evacuate quickly.
  • Prepare for Disasters:  Limit the impacts disasters have on you and your family. Know the risk of disasters in your area and check your insurance coverage. Learn how to make your home stronger in the face of storms and other common hazards; act fast if you receive a local warning or alert.
  • Teach Youth About Preparedness:  Talk to your kids about how to prepare for emergencies and what to do in case you are separated. Reassure them by providing information about how they can get involved.

Grilling Safety

There’s nothing like outdoor grilling.

It’s one of the most popular ways to cook food. But, a grill placed too close to anything that can burn is a fire hazard. They can be very hot, causing burn injuries. Follow these simple tips and you will be on the way to safe grilling

Safety Tips

Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.

The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill area. Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.

Never leave your grill unattended. 

Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it.

Charcoal Grills

There are several ways to get the charcoal ready to use. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start the charcoal using a newspaper as a fuel. If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire.

Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children and away from heat sources.

There are also electric charcoal starters, which do not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord for outdoor use.

When you are finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposing in a metal container.

Propane Grilling

Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year. Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose. A propane leak will release bubbles. If your grill has a gas leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off both the gas tank and the grill. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Do not move the grill. If the flame goes out, turn the grill and gas off and wait at least 5 minutes before re-lighting it.

Food Allergy Awareness

ad221975-94dd-4816-8a0f-bcb1aa084588

Food Allergy Awareness is meant to educate the public about life-threatening food allergies. 32 million North Americans have potentially life-threatening food allergies. Additionally, one in every 13 children lives with a food allergy, which breaks down to about 2-3 children in every classroom. 

Food allergies reactions can vary – unpredictably – from mild to severe. Meaning just because you or a loved one experienced a mild reaction in the past, doesn’t mean the next time won’t be severe. And vice versa. 

Nearly any food can trigger an allergic action. But there are nine types of food that cause the majority of allergic reactions. 

These include:  

  • Cow’s milk   
  • Egg   
  • Peanut   
  • Soy   
  • Wheat   
  • Tree Nut   
  • Shellfish   
  • Fish   
  • Sesame    

Responding to an allergic reaction: 

An allergic reaction can quickly cause swelling of the airway and a sudden drop in blood pressure, which may be life-threatening.

If you recognize signs of an allergic reaction (e.g. hives or rash, difficulty breathing, swelling in the face, throat, or tongue, etc.), you should immediately: Call 911 and keep the person calm.   Help the person use their epinephrine auto-injector.   

Monitor the person’s response and breathing. 

Consider giving a second dose if signs persist and EMS will not arrive for 5+ minutes.
