Thank you guys!! You really make a difference to us!

“I would sincerely like to thank the emergency response team that came to our home in the early hours of New Year’s. My MIL had fallen out of bed and hit her head and hip (ended up with fractured pelvis) and they were there within 4 minutes of my call! It felt like forever at the time, but emergencies are like that. The gentlemen who arrived onsite- paramedics and firemen; were quick and very concerned for our fragile, elderly Mom.

It’s that time of year again to remind you of some HIKING SAFETY TIPS

Hiking is a wonderful form of exercise and outdoor activity. Safe hiking requires some planning. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned mountain topper we hope you will consider these tips. PICK THE TRAIL THAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU!  Trails have difficulty levels associated with them. Planning a trail is based on your hiking experience, what you can comfortably fit in a backpack based on what you might need for specific equipment, food, water, and your physical ability to carry that pack. Terrain is an important consideration. Be sure you can handle steep hills, and the environment in terms of temperature, humidity, special equipment needed. And don’t forget to check the altitude you will be going into. Generally, if you are living in the Tucson valley, a climb over 8,000 feet can put you at risk of altitude sickness. And it’s always a good idea to hike with a…
