September:  National Preparedness Month

 

Kim Everett | September 10, 2014

 

September is National Preparedness Month and the Red Cross encourages everyone to develop a plan for emergencies and disasters. Because family members may not be together when a disaster occurs, plans should be made for them to contact/find each other. A location to meet away from home should be chosen and family members should be aware of the location and how to get there.

 

Practice evacuating your home twice each year. Drive your evacuation route and plot alternate routes on your map in case roads are impassable. Families should designate an out-of-area emergency contact person and each member should keep the contact information with them.

 

If an emergency occurs while all family members are in the home, a place right outside the home such as the front sidewalk of your home or a neighbor’s yard should be chosen.

 

Have proper supplies in case of an emergency or disaster and store in an easy-to-carry emergency kit that you can use at home or take with you if you must evacuate.

 

At a minimum, have these basic supplies:

 

  • Water—1 gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)

  • Food—non-perishable, easy-to-prepare (3-day supply-evacuation, 2-week supply-home)

  • Flashlight

  • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)

  • Extra batteries

  • First aid kit

  • Medications (7-day supply) and medical supplies (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, etc.)

  • Multipurpose tool

  • Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers)

  • Games and activities for children

  • Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)

  • Two-way radios

  • Extra set of car and house keys

  • Manual can opener

  • Personal hygiene items

  • Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)

  • Cellphone with charger

  • Family and emergency contact information

  • Extra cash

  • Emergency blankets, sleeping bags

  • Fire extinguisher

  • Paper/pencil

  • Mess kits, paper cups, plates, paper towels, plastic utensils

  • Map(s) of the area

 

Additional items to keep at home or in survival kit based on disasters common to area:

 

  • Whistle

  • N95 or surgical masks

  • Matches in waterproof container

  • Rain gear

  • Towels

  • Work gloves

  • Tools/supplies for securing your home

  • Extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes

  • Plastic sheeting

  • Duct tape

  • Scissors

  • Household liquid bleach

 

Know likely emergencies for your area

 

Learn types of disasters or emergencies that may occur in your area. These events can range from those affecting only you and your family, like a home fire or medical emergency, to those affecting entire community, like an earthquake or flood.

 

  • Identify how local authorities will notify you during a disaster and how you will get information, whether through local radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio stations or channels.

  • Know the difference between different weather alerts such as watches and warnings and what actions to take in each.

  • Make sure that at least one member of your household is trained in first aid and CPR and knows how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

  • Share what you’ve learned about preparedness with family and neighbors.

 

First aid kit items for a family of four:

 

  • 2 absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)

  • 25 adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)

  • 1 adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)

  • 5 antibiotic ointment packets (approximately 1 gram)

  • 5 antiseptic wipe packets

  • 2 packets of aspirin (81 mg each)

  • 1 blanket (space blanket)

  • 1 breathing barrier (with one-way valve)

  • 1 instant cold compress

  • 2 pair of non-latex gloves (size: large)

  • 2 hydrocortisone ointment packets (approximately 1 gram each)

  • Scissors

  • 2 roller bandage 3 inches wide and 4 inches wide

  • 5 each sterile gauze pads 3 x 3 inches and 4 x 4 inches

  • Oral thermometer (non-mercury/nonglass)

  • 2 triangular bandages

  • Tweezers

  • First aid instruction booklet

  • Items such as medications, emergency phone numbers

 

Keep a first aid kit in your home and in your car and check them regularly. Check expiration dates and replace out-of-date contents. Also ensure that the flashlight batteries work.

Notice:  Second report of WNV-infected mosquitos

 

Posted September 4, 2014

 

On Sept. 3, the Garland Health Department received a report of laboratory confirmed presence of West Nile Virus in mosquitos collected in the 1400 block of East Miller Road. This is the second confirmed presence of WNV in mosquitos in Garland in 2014. GHD will immediately initiated adulticide spraying throughout surrounding area to minimize the risk of human infections. 

 

Thus far in 2014, no WNV human cases have been confirmed in Dallas County but the presence of the disease in mosquitoes means that transmission to humans is possible, so residents are urged to take preventative measures. Citizens can view a map depicting areas where WNV virus has been detected and subsequently sprayed to reduce the adult mosquito population at www.GarlandTx.gov.

If you have questions or would like to report standing water, call the Garland Health Department's mosquito control hotline at 972-205-3720. Further questions on WNV should be directed to the city’s website or 972-205-3460.

WNV detected in mosquitoes in local neighborhood

 

City of Garland | August 29, 2014

 

Tuesday, Aug. 26, the Garland Health Department received a report of laboratory confirmed presence of West Nile Virus in mosquitoes collected in the 800 block of Bandera Lane. This is the first confirmed presence of WNV in mosquitoes in Garland in 2014. GHD will immediately initiate adulticide spraying throughout surrounding area on the night of August 26 (weather permitting) to minimize the risk of human infections. Spraying will be done between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., weather permitting, and will be done twice.

 

Thus far in 2014, no WNV human cases have been confirmed in Garland, but the presence of the disease in mosquitoes means that transmission to humans is possible, so residents are urged to take preventive measures. Citizens can view a map depicting areas where WNV virus has been detected and subsequently sprayed to reduce the adult mosquito population on the city of Garland website on the Mosquito Spraying Map.

 

The Health Department asks all citizens to eliminate any standing water on their property, such as birdbaths (clean them twice per week), pet water dishes, clogged rain gutters, tire piles, and buckets. Containers that can hold an inch or two of water can breed mosquitoes. Report any standing water that you are not able to eliminate yourself to the GHD.

 

Also report any dead blue jays or crows found in your neighborhood. These dead birds are good signs of virus activity and indicate where mosquito control efforts need to be concentrated. If you have questions or would like to report dead birds or standing water, please call the Garland Health Department Mosquito Hotline at 972-205-3720.

 

The only pesticides used by GHD for spraying are considered b the Environmental Protection Agency to be safe with respect to adults, children and pets

  • GHD strongly urges residents to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.

  • Limit outdoor activity near dawn and dusk.

  • When outdoors during peak mosquito activity, consider wearing long pants and long sleeve, loose-fitting shirts.

  • Treat exposed skin with a repellent that contains the active ingredient DEET. Always use repellents and insecticides according to label directions, and avoid getting repellent into the eyes.

  • Ensure that window screens fit tightly and are in good condition. 

  • Eliminate any containers in your yard that can hold water (e.g. tires, cans, flower pots holding free-standing water, clogged rain gutters). 

  • Report to the Health Department any properties that contain neglected swimming pools or that contain stagnant water bodies.


Health department inspections:  August 11-15

Galaxy Counseling Center offers advice on  suicide danger signs

 

Posted August 13, 2014

 

With the recent death of actor Robin Williams, suicide and depression is a hot topic.  If you are looking for local experts, Galaxy Counseling Center has a team of therapists and counselors available to discuss depression and signs of suicide.  If you are interested in scheduling and interview call Stephanie Ward at 972 272-4429.

 

Symptoms and danger signs

 

These signs may mean someone is at risk for suicide. Risk is greater if a behavior is new or has increased and if it seems related to a painful event, loss or change.

  •          Talking about wanting to die or to kill oneself.

  •          Looking for a way to kill oneself, such as searching online or buying a gun.

  •          Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live.

  •          Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain.

  •          Talking about being a burden to others.

  •          Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs.

  •          Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly.

  •          Sleeping too little or too much.

  •          Withdrawn or feeling isolated.

  •          Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge.

  •          Displaying extreme mood swings.

Additional warning signs of suicide

  •          Preoccupation with death.

  •          Suddenly happier, calmer.

  •          Loss of interest in things one cares about.

  •          Visiting or calling people to say goodbye.

  •          Making arrangements; setting one's affairs in order.

  •          Giving things away, such as prized possessions.

A suicidal person urgently needs to see a doctor or mental health professional.

Heat-related illness prevention tips

Posted July 28, 2014

With daily temperatures hovering around 100 degrees, it is important to be aware of the symptoms and treatment of heat-related illnesses as well as how to prevent them.

Heat-related illness is the result when the body cannot properly cool itself by sweating. Some conditions are too severe and sweating is not enough. When this happens, body temperature increases quickly and these high temperatures can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs.

Elderly and very young people, as well as those with mental illness and chronic diseases are at highest risk. However, even young, healthy people are at risk when participating in strenuous activities during extreme heat.

The following tips from the Center for Disease Control can help prevent heat-related illness and death:

  • Drink more fluids (nonalcoholic), regardless of activity level. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. If your health care professional limits the amount of fluid you drink or if you take water pills, ask him/her how much you should drink during hot weather.
  • Don’t drink liquids that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar as they cause you to lose more body fluid.
  • Avoid very cold drinks as they can cause stomach cramps.
  • Stay indoors and, if possible, in an air-conditioned place. If your home does not have air conditioning, go to the mall or library. Check with local health department to see if there are any heat-relief shelters in your area.
  • Electric fans may provide comfort, but when the heat is extreme, fans will not prevent heat-related illness. Taking a cool shower or bath, or moving to an air-conditioned place is more effective.
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.
  • NEVER leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle.

·         Check regularly on infants and young children; people 65 or older; people who have mental illness; those who have chronic conditions such as heart disease or high blood pressure.

  • Visit at risk individuals at least twice a day and watch for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Infants and young children, of course, need much more frequent watching.

If you must be out in the heat:

  • Limit outdoor activity to morning and evening hours.
  • Cut down on exercise. If you must exercise, drink two to four glasses of cool, nonalcoholic fluids each hour.  A sports beverage can replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat. However, if you are on a low-salt diet, talk with your health care professional before drinking a sports beverage.
  • Rest often in shady areas.
  • Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat, which will keep you cooler) and sunglasses and by applying sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher (the most effective products say “broad spectrum” or “UVA/UVB protection” on labels.

Mosquitoes in Dallas County test positive for WNV

 

Kim Everett | July 27, 2014

 

Garland Health Department Environmental Health Manager, Cindy Corley, confirmed that as of Friday, July 25, no mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile Virus in Garland this year.

 

That is not the case in other Dallas County cities including Balch Springs, Mesquite, Irving, Duncanville, Carrollton, Cedar Hill, Coppell and Dallas where 13 mosquito pools have tested positive as of that date.

 

Although there have been no positive results, GHD’s policy is to spray insecticide with truck-mounted equipment in areas where trap counts exceed 100. According to the city of Garland’s website, in addition to spraying, the Health Department also treats standing water and requires property owners to remove standing water.

 

GHD also asks residents to report dead blue jays or crows because they are an indication of WNV activity. Call 972-205-3720 to report dead birds or standing water.

The GDH suggests the following prevention methods:

 

·         Avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.
·         Limit outdoor activity near dawn and dusk. 
·         When outdoors during peak mosquito activity, consider wearing long pants and long sleeved, loose-fitting shirts. 
·         Treat exposed skin with a repellent that contains DEET and use according to label directions. Avoid getting repellent in eyes.
·         Ensure that window screens fit tightly and are in good condition. 
·         Eliminate any containers in yard that can hold water. 
·         Report properties where there are neglected swimming pools or stagnant water.

 

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, repellent can be safely used on children, with the exception of those containing oil of lemon eucalyptus, which should not to be used on children under the age of three. The EPA website also indicates that repellent is safe for pregnant and nursing women.

 

They offer the following safety tips:

 

  • Use only according to instructions on product label.

  • Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing. Do not apply under clothing.

  • Never use repellents over cuts, wounds or irritated skin.

  • Do not apply to eyes or mouth, and apply sparingly around ears.

  • Do not spray directly on your face—spray on your hands first and then apply to your face.

  • Do not allow children to handle or spray the product. When using on children, apply to your own hands first and then put it on the child.

  • Avoid applying repellent to children’s hands because they frequently put their hands in their eyes and mouths.

  • Use just enough to cover exposed skin and/or clothing. Heavy application does not offer better or longer lasting protection.

  • After going indoors, wash treated skin with soap and water or bathe. This is particularly important when repellents are used repeatedly in a day or on consecutive days.

  • If you (or your child) get a rash or other reaction from a repellent, stop using the repellent, wash the repellent off with mild soap and water, and call a local poison control center for further guidance. If you go to a doctor, take the product with you.

 

There is no specific treatment for West Nile Virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, confusion, nausea, rash and stiff neck. Anyone who experiences symptoms of WNV should see a doctor as soon as possible. 

 

Approximately one in five infected individuals will experience the symptoms above. Most recover quickly, but fatigue and weakness can last for weeks or months. Less than 1 percent of infected people will develop a serious neurologic illness such as encephalitis or meningitis.

 

The incubation period (time between getting bitten by infected mosquito and showing symptoms) can vary from three to 15 days.

July:  National UV protection month

 
Kim  Everett | July 19, 2014
 
July is National UV protection month and a great time to learn more about sun safety for our skin. It protects us, so we must protect it. Overexposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun can lead to numerous health problems including skin cancer, cataracts, other eye damage and immune system suppression. In addition, overexposure to the sun can cause premature skin aging, wrinkles and age spots.

 

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S. with more than 3.5 million cases diagnosed each year. But you can enjoy time in the sun by taking some simple precautionary measures.

 

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website, the following steps are helpful:

 

Wear proper clothing and accessories. Long sleeved shirts and pants, wide-brimmed hats and wrap-around UV-resistant sunglasses provide the most effective protection.

 

Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. whenever possible. Try to stay in the shade when outdoors during these hours.

 

Use caution when near reflective surfaces including water, snow and sand. Skin can burn skin more quickly under these conditions.

 

Use caution at higher altitudes where there is less atmosphere to absorb UV radiation.

 

Apply sunscreen generously to exposed skin at least 20 minutes before going outside. The broad spectrum type protects against both UVA and UVB rays. The SPF value should be at least 15. Reapply sunscreen at least every two hours even if it is water-resistant.

 

Protect children. Getting even one severe sunburn can increase a child’s risk of developing melanoma later in life.

 

Make regular visits to a dermatologist. Early detection of melanoma can save your life. A new or changing mole should be evaluated by a dermatologist. Talk to your dermatologist about how often you should see him or her.

 


Health department inspections:  July 7-11

Cindy Corley, Garland Health Department |  July 16, 2014

Each week the city of Garland Health Department conducts inspections of establishments where food is served.  Inspections include day care centers, retirement homes, school cafeterias, restaurants - fast food and dine-in, convenience stores, and grocery stores.

A failing grade includes anything below 60.  Any establishment scoring less than 70 is deemed "high risk" and inspection frequency of that establishment is increased.  Establishments scoring less than 50 are subject to mandatory closure.
