On Patriot Day, September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, we honor every life that was taken too soon. We pay tribute to the first responders — firefighters, law enforcement officers, ...emergency workers, and service members — who answered the call of duty, and the brave civilians who responded with courage to save lives that day. We also remember the patriotism and valor of our service members and are inspired by their heroism. We will never forget what happened on September 11, 2001, or those who lost their lives.
#WeWillNeverForget #PatriotDay

On Labor Day, we pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. Enjoy this day!

As kids head back to school this week, please remember to slow down and be aware of children boarding school buses. Watch for children walking in the street, especially if there are no sidewalks and ...stop for children in crosswalks. Yellow flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Drivers should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles. Red flashing lights and extended stop arms indicate the bus has stopped and children are getting on or off. Drivers must stop their cars and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the extended stop-arm is withdrawn, and the bus begins moving before they can start driving again.

Also, take a moment to remind your child about getting on and off the bus safely. When the school bus arrives, your child should wait until the bus comes to a complete stop, the door opens, and the driver says it’s okay before approaching the bus door. Your child should use the handrails to avoid falling. Make sure kids don’t have long drawcords or straps on backpacks that could get caught on a handrail or door when boarding. Your child should never walk behind a school bus and should also make eye contact with the bus driver before crossing to make sure the driver can see him/her and keeps the bus lights flashing to stop other cars.. If your child drops something near the school bus, like a ball or book, the safest thing is for your child to tell the bus driver right away. Your child should not try to pick up the item, because the driver might not be able to see him/her.

Summer is in full swing and our region is expected to experience temperatures above 90° this week. Make sure to take precautions to avoid heat-related illness. It’s important to pay attention to ...warning signs like dizziness, paleness, weakness, nausea, confusion, or a rapid pulse. Watch for escalation to a more serious state like heat stroke, which is often indicated by dry skin instead of heavy sweating. Call 911 immediately and move the person to a cooler place and help lower their temperature with cool cloths, a cool bath, or spray them with water. Do not give a person with heat stroke anything to drink.

Staying hydrated is crucial to your overall health, so make drinking water a priority to prevent heat-related illness. During the hottest days of summer, we can often underestimate how much water we need to drink. You should be drinking water regularly throughout the day, before you ever get thirsty. Try adding some flavor with fresh fruit or even a small splash of fruit juice. You can also try frozen ice pops, coconut water, or sports drinks to beat the heat.

Some fruits and vegetables are higher in water content than others, so try to work those into your diet as much as possible during the summer to stay hydrated. Water-dense produce include: Watermelon, Tomatoes, Zucchini, Pineapples, Cantaloupe, Peaches, Strawberries, Lettuce, Cucumbers, Apples, Radishes, Celery, and Bell Peppers. Smoothies, salads and even chilled summer soups are great ways to get a boost of hydration in your daily meals!
