What's New - February 2019 Minimize

National Burn Awareness Week

February 3-9 is National Burn Awareness Week! Each year, over 450,000 burn injuries occur in the United States that are serious enough to require medical treatment.

Children under the age of 5 pose a particular risk for household burns. Each year, approximately 250,000 children are burned seriously enough to require medical attention! (data from www.burnfoundation.org) The video below, from the Santa Monica CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), has some excellent safety and first aid tips to prevent (and treat) scald burns.

Power Line Safety

When storm winds pick up, so does the potential for downed power lines, and the hazardous situations they present. If you see a downed power line, remember to stay a minimum of 25’ away from the line, as the ground beneath it can become charged as well.  Then call 9-1-1 to report the line, so emergency services can be dispatched to secure the area.  You can learn more about power line safety at PG&E’s Electrical Safety Page: https://www.pge.com/en_US/safety/electrical-safety/electrical-safety.page, or the EFSI (Electrical Safety Foundation International) website, at: http://www.esfi.org/overhead-power-line-safety
