07/16/2022

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds the public that standup paddleboarders in Wisconsin are required to have wearable life jackets of the appropriate sizes for each on board. Those age 12 and younger must wear their life jackets while paddling on federally managed waters.

Wearing a life jacket makes smart safety sense for all paddlers regardless of age or the law of the water.

Paddler Safety Tips
• Stay sober.
• Take a standup paddleboarding safety course through the American Canoe Association.
• Paddle with a pal and let a third party know when and where you’re heading.
• Check the weather and know the wind direction.
• Match your outing with your skills. Steer clear of waterbodies with lots of traffic as waves will make for a bumpy, possible dangerous outing for you.
• Get a dry bag for energy bars, sunscreen, first aid items, waterproof flashlight, and a waterproof holder for a cell phone.
• Wear a whistle.
• Wear an ankle leash in the event you fall off.

Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death.

Fireworks started an estimated 19,500 fires in 2018, including 1,900 structure fires, 500 vehicle fires, and 17,100 outside and other fires. These fires caused five deaths, 46 civilian injuries, and $105 million in direct property damage.

NSHD Healthy Highlight 6/29/22: Understanding Heat Index - http://ow.ly/RTXr50JKXsB

Heat index measures level of discomfort a person (on average) experiences due to combined effects of temperature and air humidity.

Getting too hot can make you sick. You can become ill from the heat if your body can’t compensate for it and properly cool you off.

High humidity and personal factors can affect the body’s ability to cool itself during extremely hot weather.
• High humidity. When the humidity is high, sweat won’t evaporate as quickly. This keeps your body from releasing heat as fast as it may need to.
• Personal factors. Age, obesity, fever, dehydration, heart disease, mental illness, poor circulation, sunburn, and prescription drug and alcohol use all can play a role in whether a person can cool off enough in very hot weather.

Extreme heat exposure can cause heat stress, and result in heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or heat rashes.

Keeping Cool in Heat
• Drink more water than usual, avoiding sugary beverages. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water.
• Stay cool in an air-conditioned area. Fans are helpful but don’t rely on them as a main cooling device.
• Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothes.
• Don’t use a stove or oven to cook, as it will make the house hotter.
• Check on friends and neighbors.

The OSHA-NIOSH Heat Safety Tool is a useful resource for planning outdoor work activities based on how hot it feels throughout the day: http://ow.ly/QO0z50JKXsF

The Shorewood Village Board and the Whitefish Village Board are Meeting this week and next to discuss mandatory mask wearing inside. Our governor’s hand have been tied by the Supreme Court and our State legislators are not meeting again this year so we depend on our local governments, unfortunately to mandate mask wearing inside.
When are playgrounds going to be re-opened?
Are you still offering bike helmets for sale during the SAH orders? We could use a bigger helmet if there's a way to purchase without contact. Thanks!
If we test positive for COVid-19 or we strongly suspect that we are sick, is the NSHD tracking cases and is it expected that citizens alert your office?
Today’s post regarding Covid-19 stated that “Wisconsin has 155 confirmed cases of Covid-19, with 62 being in Milwaukee County and a sizable number of these from communities in the North Shore area.” Can we find out the breakdown by each city? This is valuable information we need to know.
Today, Addiction Policy Forum is launching our new awareness campaign, “Va**ng: Know the Facts” for teens, parents, and schools. Amidst all of the recent news about e-ci******es, our in-depth toolkit simplifies the science and gives you the tools to address teen va**ng.

The free, interactive toolkit includes:

new animated video,
fact sheet,
classroom activity,
education-based detention intervention,
online courses,
and much more...
