Tips to Stay Safe

Water Safety and Drowning Prevention Month

There is an irony in reviewing the dangers presented by water activities, as these activities are generally accompanied by warm memories and good times. However, as with all safety topics, reviewing the sad outcomes, allows us to focus on the safety measures that will prepare us, and thus mitigate against water based injuries and death. Multiple agencies across the Unites States, at federal, state, and local levels are invested in water safety and specifically prevention of death and/or injury from drowning.

Crew Shout Outs

Story of an Air Conditioner Install

On July 11, 2022 the crew of Paramedic 436 returned from a call at a Drexel Heights residence, they asked if there was anything that could be done for the resident who lived there, an elderly female with no family, and surviving on very little income.  The crew reported that the lady’s air conditioner was completely out of service. They were truly worried with the current heat spell, that the resident would not do well.
