Careful use of pesticides essential

Kim Everett | March 16, 2015

Everything put down household drains is carried by sewer lines to wastewater water treatment plants whether that plant is equipped to treat it or not. This is why it is inappropriate, illegal in fact, to put chemicals like pesticides down household drains. 

Tests show that even one teaspoon of the pesticide Diazinon® down a sink or toilet can injure or kill the microorganisms used to monitor water quality. Pesticide use has increased because of the explosion in the population and there is no doubt that it can harm the environment as well as the health of the people.

For alternatives to pesticides, visit with a nursery representative or county extension agent.

Additionally, keep in mind that even when pesticides are used correctly, runoff can carry small amounts to other locations including rivers, streams, lakes and drinking water.

Because of the danger to the water system, homeowners and commercial property owners should use and dispose of pesticides properly. The following tips are offered by the North Texas Municipal Water District:

  • Triple-rinse application and mixing equipment and empty all used containers outdoors where the pesticide is used.
  • Dispose of rinse water by using during application to lawn.
  • Use less toxic methods of control when possible.
  • Apply pesticides only when necessary and less toxic methods are ineffective.
  • Mix only the amount of pesticide needed to treat a specific area.
  • Plan application so pesticides will not be washed away by rain. Apply well before it rains or wait until it stops raining.
  • Do not dump excess pesticides or rinse water down storm drains or household drains.
  • Use pesticides according to label directions.

In addition to correct application and disposal, storage is another concern. Always store pesticides in locked shed where animals and children cannot access them. The shed should have a concrete floor to prevent seepage into soil.

Severe weather safety

 

Kim Everett | March 13, 2015

 

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, almost 300 people die each year from weather related incidents such as tornadoes, lightning, and flash flooding and the peak months for tornadoes in Texas are March, April and May. Spring and summer in Texas are also notorious for severe thunderstorms.

 

The first step in ensuring your family’s safety is to develop an emergency plan and be certain that all family members know what to do during a weather emergency. Quiz children by using “what should you do if…” questions. Visit www.redcross.org/services/disaster/keepsafe/ for information.

 

To stay informed during severe weather, use a NOAA weather radio with a battery backup, the Internet - www.nws.noaa.gov or stay tuned to a local radio or television station. The National Weather Service issues a “watch” when conditions are favorable for the formation of severe weather and a “warning” when severe weather is indicated by radar or has been reported by eyewitnesses.

 

Thunderstorms can spawn tornadoes and cause heavy winds, flash flooding, lightning and hail and it is important to become familiar with the following safety tips for each of these weather conditions.

 

Lightning

 

  • Lightning strikes the earth 20 million times each year.

  • If thunderstorms are predicted, postpone outdoor activities.

  • Follow the 30/30 lightning safety rule:  If after seeing lightning, you cannot count to 30 before hearing thunder – go inside and stay there until you hear no thunder for 30 minutes.

  • When caught outdoors during lightning, take shelter in a sturdy building or hard top car and keep the windows closed.

  • Avoid touching any metal. 

  • Stay away from tall objects such as towers, utility poles, power lines and isolated trees. 

  • If in a wooded area, seek shelter under the shortest trees.

  • If no shelter is available, find a low spot away from tall objects, being careful to choose a spot that is not subject to flooding. Squat low to the ground on the balls of your feet and place your hands on your head and your head between your knees. Become as small as possible without lying down.  Minimize contact with the ground.

  • If you are in or on the water, seek shelter on dry land.

  • When at home, unplug all unnecessary appliances and avoid using corded telephones and electrical appliances. Do not take a shower or bath during a storm.  Turn off air conditioners, as power surges can cause damage.

 

Straight-line/High Winds

 

  • High winds are responsible for the largest part of thunderstorm damage and can exceed 100 mph.

  • Seek sturdy shelter and stay away from windows and doors.

  • Put as many walls between you and the outside as possible.

  • Avoid driving as high winds can make controlling vehicles difficult.

  • Secure loose items such as patio furniture. 

  • Keep property clear of dead, rotted trees and loose branches that might be blown down and cause damage or injury.

 

Tornadoes

 

  • Tornadoes can develop quickly with no advance warning. Watch for signs such as dark, often greenish sky, large hail, or a loud roar.

  • Seek shelter such as a basement or small interior room or hallway on the lowest floor and get under sturdy furniture or in the bathtub. If possible, cover yourself with a blanket or sleeping bag. 

  • Put as many walls between you and the outside as possible. Stay away from windows and doors.

  • Get out of cars. Never try to outrun a tornado – leave your car and seek safe shelter.

  • If outside, lie flat in a ditch and cover head with your hands.

  • Watch for flying debris.

  • Leave mobile homes and go to the lowest floor of a nearby sturdy building.

 

Flash Floods

 

  • Never walk, swim, or drive in floodwaters.

  • Do not drive through moving water.

  • Steer clear of high water, storm drains, ditches, culverts, etc.

  • When floodwaters are encountered, stop, turn around and go another way.  Get to higher ground.

  • Never let children play near storm drains.

 

Have an emergency kit containing the following items

 

  • First aid kid

  • Portable radio/extra batteries

  • Flashlight/extra batteries

  • Emergency food and water and a manual can opener

  • All necessary prescription and non-prescription medications

Change clocks, smoke alarm batteries for daylight savings time

 

Posted March 6, 2015

 

According to the National Fire Protection Agency, two-thirds of home fire deaths result from fires in homes without a working smoke alarm. I.A.F.F. Local 1293 firefighters remind you to change the batteries in smoke alarms when you change your clocks for Daylight Savings Time.
 

“Saving your life can be as simple as changing your smoke alarm batteries once a year and replacing smoke alarms every seven to 10 years,” said David Riggs, a firefighter at I.A.F.F Local 1293. He added that special smoke alarms are available for those who are hearing-impaired.  

 

The NFPA reports that working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire by 50 percent. Research has also demonstrated that photoelectric smoke alarms are more effective at warning people of smoke from smoldering fires than ionization smoke alarms. With earlier warning, people have more time to escape a burning structure and call 9-1-1.

 

Your local firefighters recommend installing a dual purpose smoke alarm in every bedroom, outside of every interior door and on each floor of your home.

 

“You should also install carbon monoxide alarms in your home and check them once a month,” Riggs said. “Carbon monoxide fumes are poisonous and will increase the intensity of a fire if ignited.”

 

More than 2,300 people die each year in home fires. Having a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm that works 24 hours a day greatly increases your chance of survival in case of fire.

 

In the case of an emergency, call 9-1-1 for the help of your local firefighters.


March: Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

 

Rebekah Grey, student intern | March 3, 2015

 

Colon or rectal cancer, known as colorectal cancer or CRC, has become the second leading cancer killer among men and women in the United States. Despite this, many adults are unaware that they are at risk. Thus, March has been established as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, in the hope that screenings and improved lifestyles will help decrease the number of victims of this disease.

 

Testing saves lives, and is strongly recommended by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF). The USPSTF recommends that all adults between the ages of 50 and 75 years take at least one of three tests: colonoscopy, stool test (FOBT/FIT), or sigmoidoscopy. About 90 percent of CRC patients live five or more years when their cancer is found through early screening. 

 

There are a number of symptoms which show themselves in CRC patients. When the colon or rectum suffers from the disease, prolonged diarrhea, constipation or narrowing of the stool may occur. Other reactions include rectal bleeding, cramping or abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue as well as unintended weight loss. While these symptoms are often caused by other conditions such as infection, it is a good idea to see a doctor if you experience them.

 

Several factors can increase one’s risk of developing colorectal cancer. Those who have diets heavy in red or processed meats, are physically inactive, are obese, smoke, or use alcohol heavily have shown to be more likely to suffer from CRC. A personal or family history of adenomatous polyps, a personal history of inflammatory bowel disease or family history of colorectal cancer are other factors that can increase this risk.

 

Approximately 23 million adults have never been tested for CRC. The aim of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month is to lower this number so that America has more survivors and fewer fatalities. About two of every three adults who have never been tested actually have a regular doctor and health insurance that will cover the cost. For those who don't, the federal government is working to improve the cost of cancer screenings.

 

The death rate from colorectal cancer has been dropping, and today, more than a million CRC survivors exist in the U.S. Join the fight by raising awareness and, if eligible, getting tested for colorectal cancer.

Heart disease: Know the risks

 

Rebekah Grey, student intern | February 3, 2015

 

February is American Heart Month, a time to raise awareness about our nation's heart health. It's an appropriate month to keep this in mind, since we see hearts everywhere as an image of love. By watching out for signs of heart disease, you can show love to yourself and those around you.

 

Cardiovascular disease, or CVD, is responsible for one out of every three deaths, making it the number one killer in the U.S. In addition, it is a leading cause of disability, which can prevent people from working and enjoying time with loved ones. Because Americans aren't aware of the risk of CVD and fail to act before it's too late, more than $300 billion is depleted every year in health care services, medications and lost productivity.

 

Anyone can be impacted by heart disease. The Center for Disease Control notes that one's risk can be affected by factors such as gender, ethnicity, and having close relatives with CVD. For instance, men are twice as likely as women are to die from preventable heart disease, and about two in five African- American adults have high blood pressure. However, in spite of this, many of the factors that contribute to CVD can be controlled.

 

Nearly half of Americans have at least one major risk factor, though many don't know it. The most important thing to do is act. Even if it seems ridiculous to consider the possibility of having heart disease, it doesn't hurt to check; in fact, it could save your life.

 

Many heart-related deaths might have been prevented by a simple change of lifestyle. Healthier habits, better living spaces, and increased management of medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure can have a huge influence on one's heart.

 

Practical things that can be kept in check are diet, physical activity, tobacco and alcohol use, obesity, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes.

 

If you see warning signs relating to heart health, whether it's yours or someone else's, show love and act as quickly as possible. Spread awareness during American Heart Month and join in the fight to save lives.

 

For more information, visit www.cdc.gov or www.heart.org.

Health department inspections:  January 19-23

Cindy Corley, Garland Health Department | January 27, 2015

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.

Beef House was closed for 24 hours then reopened.
