Back-to-School Mental Health

It’s hard to believe the start of fall is officially here. Kids are back to school and it’s an exciting time, but it can also make some children and teens feel stressed and anxious about fitting back in with their peers or handling academic pressures.

Remember: Safe and proper storage is the number one way to prevent misuse of fi****ms, including su***de!

If a teen is in crisis, they may make an impulsive decision to end their life. But if they can’t access a means to do so, there’s time for the crisis to pass or intervention. We have free gun locks available to you at the Constable Precinct 6 office located at 1029 W. Rosemeade Pkwy. Carrollton, Tx!

Today we remember all the heroes who were forged in the hours, days, and years that followed that terrible morning of September 11, 2001 — ordinary Americans who, amidst the terror, smoke, and flames, demonstrated extraordinary courage and selflessness. Together, their bravery helped prove to our Nation and the world that what those terrorists most hoped to wound could never be broken: the character of our Nation.

Extreme Heat IS STILL HERE! This year has been particularly hot! Make sure you know what to do to avoid falling victim to the heat! Cooler weather is forecasted for next week…but in the meantime…know the signs for heat-related illnesses!
• Stay indoors in a place with working air conditioning.
• Know methods for reducing heat impact. Use shades to block sun, wear light colored and loose-fitting clothing, and stay hydrated to reduce heat impact.
• If outdoors, seek shaded areas. Wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face from the sun. Avoid overexertion and physically demanding activity, especially during the warmest times of the day.
• Never leave a child, adult, or animal alone inside a vehicle on a warm day.
• Check on your family and neighbors.
• Know and watch the signs of heat-related illnesses. Watch for cramps, exhaustion, and heat stroke. Learn quick treatment options and when to get medical help.
Extremely high body temperature, skin that is hot and red, dizziness and confusion, and a rapid and strong pulse are all heat stroke symptoms and may be a medical emergency. Call 9-1-1 or get the victim to a hospital immediately. Do not give the person anything to drink. Cool the person by removing their clothing and moving to a cooler environment. Try a cool bath, sponging, ice packs, or wrap in cold, wet sheets. Use fans and air conditioners, if available. Watch for breathing problems until emergency medical personnel arrive.

When you open your phone in this afternoon or check the weather online, you might be seeing an alert lately: “Red Flag (Fire Weather) Warning.”

WHAT IS A RED FLAG WARNING??

“A Red Flag Warning means if a fire happens today, your firefighters are going to have a hard time controlling it, and you may need to take action,” said Heath Hockenberry, the national fire weather program manager with the National Weather Service.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9 1 1.

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community.

With the beginning of spring comes a host of different hazards to keep in mind. Here are some tips for keeping workers safe in spring:
• Be ready for changeable weather. It can easily flick between dry and thunderstorms and warm and cold in no time during spring. Outdoor and remote workers should be prepared for anything and you must supply them with the equipment they need.
• Slips, trips and falls can be an issue following a frozen winter. The big thaw can lead to boggy conditions around your job site. These add hazards to the workplace.
• As we move into the warmer months of the year, your outdoor workers need to be aware of insects like ticks and mosquitos, which can cause illness. Wearing appropriate clothing to prevent this, such as long sleeves, is a must at this time of the year.
• Be aware of the signs of illnesses that relate to the heat. Once the temperature creeps up, workers can get headaches and start to feel dizzy and nauseous if it becomes too hot.

13 Lucky Facts About St. Patrick's Day

1. We should really be wearing blue on St. Patrick’s Day.
Saint Patrick himself would have to deal with pinching on his feast day. Though we've come to associate kelly green with the Irish and the holiday, the 5th-century saint’s official color was “Saint Patrick’s blue,” a light shade of sky blue. The color green only became associated with the big day after it was linked to the Irish independence movement in the late 18th century.
2. St. Patrick wasn’t Irish.
Although he made his mark by introducing Christianity to Ireland in the year 432, Patrick wasn’t Irish himself. He was born to Roman parents in Scotland or Wales in the late 4th century.
3. St. Patrick’s Day used to be a dry holiday.
As you might expect, St. Patrick’s Day is a huge deal in his old stomping grounds. It’s a national holiday in both Ireland and Northern Ireland, but up until the 1970s, pubs were closed on that day. (The one exception went to beer vendors at the big national dog show, which was always held on St. Patrick’s Day.) Before that time, the saint’s feast day was considered a more solemn, strictly religious occasion. Now, the country welcomes hordes of green-clad tourists for parades, drinks, and perhaps the reciting of a few limericks.
4. New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day parade has been happening since 1762.
New York City’s St. Patrick's Day Parade is one of the world’s largest parades. Since 1762, roughly 250,000 marchers have traipsed up 5th Avenue on foot—the parade still doesn’t allow floats, cars, or other modern trappings. People like Miracle on 34th Street actress Maureen O’Hara and Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, have served as grand marshal. In 2020, the parade was canceled for the first time in its centuries-old history due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
5. Chicago literally runs green for St. Patrick’s Day.
New York may have more manpower, but Chicago has a spectacle all its own. The city has been celebrating St. Patrick by dumping green dye into the Chicago River since 1962. And though the organizers won’t reveal their exact formula, we do know that the powder used is dispersed through flour sifters by the local plumbers’ union.
6. For some St. Patrick’s Day parades, it’s the thought that counts.
Not every city goes all-out in its celebratory efforts. From 1999 to 2007, the Irish village of Dripsey proudly touted that it hosted the shortest Saint Patrick’s Day parade in the world. The route ran for 25 yards between two pubs. Today, Hot Springs, Arkansas, claims the title for brevity—a mere 98 feet.
7. There’s a reason for the shamrocks.
How did the shamrock become associated with St. Patrick? According to Irish legend, the saint used the three-leafed plant (which is not to be confused with the four-leaf clover) as a metaphor for the holy trinity when he was first introducing Christianity to Ireland.
8. Cold weather helped St. Patrick’s claim to fame.
In Irish lore, St. Patrick gets credit for driving all the snakes out of Ireland. Modern scientists suggest that the job might not have been too hard—according to the fossil record, Ireland has never been home to any snakes. Through the Ice Age, the island was too cold to host any reptiles, and the surrounding seas have staved off serpentine invaders ever since. Modern scholars think the “snakes” St. Patrick drove away were likely metaphorical.
9. There’s no corn in that beef.
Corned beef and cabbage, which has become a St. Patrick's Day staple for Irish Americans, doesn't have anything to do with the grain corn. Instead, it's a nod to the large grains of salt that were historically used to cure meats, which were also known as “corns.”
10. Americans run up quite a bar tab on St. Patrick’s Day.
In 2017, it was estimated that 13 million pints of Guinness would be consumed worldwide on St. Patrick’s Day. And in 2022, it was estimated that in America, overall beer sales would be up 174 percent. In fact, it’s the biggest day for bars in the country. And in general, in 2023, it was expected that Americans would spend $6.86 billion celebrating the holiday.
11. St. Patrick’s Day could have been Saint Maewyn’s Day.
According to Irish legend, St. Patrick wasn’t originally called Patrick. His birth name was Maewyn Succat, but he changed it to Patricius after becoming a priest.
12. There are no female leprechauns.
Don’t be fooled by any holiday decorations showing lady leprechauns. In traditional Irish folk tales, there are no female leprechauns, only nattily attired little guys who spend their days making and mending shoes (meaning they earned that gold they’re always guarding).
13. St. Patrick’s Day lingo makes sense.
You can’t attend a St. Patrick’s Day event without hearing a cry of “Erin go Bragh.” The phrase is a corruption of the Irish Éirinn go Brách, which means roughly “Ireland forever.”

A cap is slowly building back over north Texas and should be quite strong by tomorrow afternoon and evening which will help in preventing most - but not all - storms from developing in the increasingly humid air on Wednesday afternoon. Best - but not only - chances for storms on Wednesday will be south and east of the DFW area.

However, a powerful upper-level storm system will move in from the west on Thursday and will assume a negative tilt - the strongest orientation an upper-level storm system can assume - and the jet stream will split wide over north Texas at over 100 mph.

Presidents Day 2023

The holiday was first established as Washington's Birthday in 1879 to honor President George Washington. It was commemorated on Feb. 22 until 1971, when it was moved away from Washington's actual birthdate to give federal workers another three-day weekend.

After that, it was more commonly known as "Presidents Day."

Depending on where you live, though, it may alternately be spelled "President's Day" (to acknowledge Washington) or Presidents' Day" (to include Abraham Lincoln, born on Feb. 12).

According to the National Archives, Presidents Day will never fall on George Washington's actual birthday, since the latest the third Monday in February can fall is Feb. 21.

How did Washington's Birthday become Presidents Day?

Soon after George Washington's death in 1799, his Feb. 22 birthday became an annual day of remembrance. It didn't become a federal holiday, however, until 1879 -- the first one to commemorate an individual.

Spring officially starts Monday, March 20 and each spring North Texas encounters severe weather events including tornadoes, lightning, thunder, hail and flooding that can cause significant damage or even death. Prepare your emergency kit and stay weather aware!!!!
TORNADOES
While a tornado watch indicates tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area. A tornado warning indicates a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar and you should take shelter immediately.
Recognize the signs of a tornado such as dark, green-tinted clouds, a wall cloud, large hail, a funnel cloud, and a roaring noise similar to a freight train!!
1. Take shelter in a small room on the lowest level of your home, enclosed by four walls and away from any windows or doors. If in a multi-level building such as an apartment or hotel find a secure hallway towards the center of the complex.
2. If you live in a mobile home or trailer, abandon your mobile home and seek shelter in a sturdy building or a vehicle. No area of a mobile home is safe during a tornado or other severe winds.
3. Anyone outside who cannot get to a sturdy shelter should immediately get into a vehicle and drive to the closest shelter. Avoid bridges and over passes. If flying debris or strong winds occur, pull over and park, keep your seat belt on and engine running and cover your head.
FLOODING
Like tornadoes watches and warnings, a flood watch means flooding is possible and a flood warning mean flooding is occurring or will occur soon. Know the flood risks in your area and which routes to use if you need to quickly evacuate.
1. Do not walk, swim or drive through floodwater. Six inches of fast-flowing water can knock you over and two feet will float a car.
2. If caught on a flooded road with rapidly rising waters, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground. The depth of water may not be obvious and the roadbed may have washed away.
3. Floods can contaminate clean water sources, so it is important to fill bathtubs, sinks, and several plastic bottles with clean drinking water – fill enough for everyone in your household.
4. If advised by local authorities, turn off utilities and unplug small appliances to reduce damage to your home. If left plugged in/turned on, power surges may cause extensive electrical damage.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS
Severe thunderstorm may produce hail, high winds, and lightning, which kills more people each year than tornadoes or hurricanes. If under a thunderstorm watch stay informed as conditions are likely and if escalated to a thunderstorm warning take action to shelter your family and pets.
1. Close the shades or blinds over all windows and to stay a good distance away from them. If debris or large hail shatters the windows, the glass can be caught by the shades and reduce the risk of injury.
2. Avoid taking a shower or running water and unplug or avoid the use of electrical appliances and landline telephones. Metal pipes and wiring can carry electricity if struck by lightning.
3. When driving, turn on your flashers, pull safely over to the shoulder of the road and stop, making sure you are away from any trees or objects that could fall onto the vehicle.
4. If outside, find shelter in a substantial, permanent, enclosed structure. Avoid gazebos, golf carts, baseball dugouts or other isolated structures in open areas as they are often struck by lightning.

Drive Safely as it gets Darker

Daylight Saving Time ends every year on the first Sunday in November. This means it starts to get darker earlier. Shorter days, fatigue, compromised night vision, rush hour and impaired drivers are some of the risks we face when driving at night. These risks become especially pronounced moving into the weekend, with fatal crashes peaking on Saturday nights, according to NSC analysis of NHTSA data.

When Daylight Saving Time ends – for 2022, that's 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6 – many people will find themselves spending more time driving in the dark. Depth perception, color recognition and peripheral vision can be compromised in the dark, and the glare of headlights from an oncoming vehicle can temporarily blind a driver.
Night driving is dangerous because, even with high-beam headlights on, visibility is limited to about 500 feet (250 feet for normal headlights) creating less time to react to something in the road, especially when driving at higher speeds.
What should you do to combat darkness?
• Aim your headlights correctly, and make sure they're clean
• Dim your dashboard
• Look away from oncoming lights
• If you wear glasses, make sure they're anti-reflective
• Clean the windshield to eliminate streaks
• Slow down to compensate for limited visibility and reduced stopping time

After Storms, Watch Out for Scams

Natural disasters and severe weather can create opportunities for fraud in their wake, occurring at a
time when people may be especially vulnerable, or targeting charitable intensions.
Scammers use phone, text, mail, email, and even go door to door to target residents of affected areas
following hurricanes and damaging storms. After Tropical Storm Imelda struck southeast Texas, FEMA
issued an alert about a variety of scam attempts.
Watch Out for Red Flags
First, know that officials with government disaster assistance agencies do not call or text asking for
financial account information, and that there is no fee required to apply for or get disaster assistance
from FEMA or the Small Business Administration. Anyone claiming to be a federal official who asks for
money is an imposter.
Remember that phone scams often use spoofing techniques to deliberately falsify the information
transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity or make the call appear to be official.
If someone calls claiming to be a government official, hang up and call the number listed on that
government agency's official website. Never reveal any personal information unless you've confirmed
you're dealing with a legitimate official. Workers and agents who knock on doors of residences are
required to carry official identification and show it upon request, and they may not ask for or accept
money.
Steps for Avoiding Post-Disaster Insurance Scams
If you get a phone call about an insurance claim or policy, don't give out any personal information or
agree to any payment until you can independently verify that the call is legitimate. If the caller says
they're from your insurance company, hang up and contact your agent or the company directly using
the number on your account statement. Policyholders with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP
Direct) can call 1-800-638-6620.
Contractors and home improvement companies may also call claiming to be partners with your
insurance provider. Never give policy numbers, coverage details, or other personal information out to
companies with whom you have not entered into a contract. If your state requires licensing, verify that
any contractor you are considering is licensed and carries adequate insurance. Many states have
online databases you can check.
Disaster Relief Charity Scams
Consumers should also be aware of scammers posing as representatives of charities seeking
donations for disaster relief. There are several steps you can take to protect yourself from this type of
fraud:
2
Federal Communications Commission · Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau · 45 L Street NE, Washington, DC 20554
1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322) · TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322) · www.fcc.gov/consumer-governmental-affairs-bureau
• Donate to trusted, well-known charities. Beware of scammers who create fake charities
during natural disasters. Always verify a charity's legitimacy through its official website. If you
have doubts, you can check with Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance, Charity
Navigator, Charity Watch, or GuideStar. You can also check with the National Association of
State Charity Officials whether charities must be registered in your state and if the charity
contacting you is on file with your state.
• Verify all phone numbers for charities. If you need to contact a charity by phone, check the
charity's official website to see if the number you have is legitimate. If you're using text-todonate, check with the charity to ensure the number is legitimate before donating.
• Do not open suspicious emails. If you receive a suspicious email requesting donations or
other assistance, do not click on any links or open any attachments. Scammers regularly use
email for phishing attacks and to spread malware.
• Verify information in social media posts. Double-check any solicitation for charitable
donations before you give. Crowd-funding websites often host individual requests for help but
they are not always vetted by the site or other sources.
To report suspected fraud, call the FEMA Disaster Fraud Hotline toll free at 1-866-720-5721. If you
need to report other fraudulent activities during or following a natural disaster, please notify FEMA at 1-
866-720-5721 or [email protected].
You can also file a complaint with the FCC about phone scams, or with the FTC about fraud

The Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau develops and implements the FCC's consumer policies and serves as the agency's connection to the American consumer. Our mission includes disability rights, consumer education, and outreach to state, local and Tribal governments.

Make a Plan now...

Your family may not be together if a disaster strikes, so it is important to know which types of disasters could affect your area. Know how you’ll contact one another and reconnect if separated. Establish a family meeting place that’s familiar and easy to find. And, don’t forget to think about specific needs in your family. Your family’s needs change over time, so update your plan regularly.

Who Will We Contact?
Pick the same person for each family member to contact. Pick someone out of town—they may be easier to reach in a disaster.

Text, don’t talk. In an emergency, phone lines may be tied up. It may be easier to text and this leaves phone lines open for emergency workers.


Communications Plan
Where Will We Meet?
Decide on safe, familiar, accessible places where your family can go for protection or to reunite. If you have pets or service animals, think about animal-friendly locations. Consider places in your house, in your neighborhood, and outside of your city or town so you’re prepared for any situation.

Plan sheet
Practice, Practice, Practice!
On your own list or using the resources below, write down your contacts and plans. Make sure everyone in the family has copies and keeps them in a safe space, like in a backpack, wallet, or taped in a notebook. Put them in your cell phone if you have one. Hold regular household meetings to review and practice your plan.
