SEARCH CONTINUES FOR BREASIA TERRELL: The Iowa Department of Public Safety issues Iowa AMBER ALERT communications upon receipt of a request from a participating law enforcement agency, provided that the criteria established in rule 661—89.201(694) are met. DPS issued an Amber Alert for Breasia Terrell immediately upon request from the Davenport Police Department to provide rapid response to the situation and have a safe recovery of the child.

Per this rule, the five-hour window for the Amber Alert notification system has expired for Breasia Terrell - as it does for all Amber Alert cases - however the search is still active and underway for her as a missing person. The public is asked to call the Davenport Police Department at 563-326-6125 with any information related to her disappearance.

Breasia is a 10-year-old African-American female, 4'5 tall, 75 pounds with braids. She was last seen wearing a white shirt, white shorts and white/pink flip flop sandals. For more information, visit the Amber Alert website for more information: http://iowaamberalert.org.

For the first time in (I don’t know when) there won’t be a Freedom Fest firework show tonight. There are still lots of places with professional shows around the area that you can enjoy. If you are shooting your own fireworks tonight be safe, make good choices and be respectful of your neighbors. Also, please be kind and pick up your trash after they’ve safely cooled down. Don’t take spent fireworks inside or put them in the trash near the house until the next day. Have a happy, safe, and fun 4th everyone!

Americans have been using fireworks to light up the 4th since 1777. State Fire Marshal Dan Wood reminds us to celebrate responsibly! #The4thRules

With many professional firework shows being cancelled you may be tempted to put on your own show. But fireworks in the hands of consumers are not safe! Fireworks are dangerous to people and pets. Using them puts your property at risk. Here are a few ideas on what you can to do celebrate instead.

Fire marshal determines massive condo fire started around gas grill on balcony

We all love to smoke and grill, but always practice good grilling safety. Never use a charcoal grill on decks or balconies. Never leave you grill unattended. It’s always a good idea to have a fire extinguisher on hand when doing any type of cooking. Alway make sure grills and smokers are kept the recommended distance from combustible materials and that they are clean and all drip pans in place. We’d happily accept an invite to your barbecue, we just hope you don’t have to use 911 to get us there!

Firefighters determined a massive fire at the Emerald Bay Condominiums in Lake Ozark was caused by a fire on a gas barbeque grill. Lake Ozark Fire Protection District units were first dispatched to the fire at 6:56 p. m. Tuesday. Responding fire units saw a large column of black smoke immediately wh...

Safety Stand Down 2020
Building a Superhighway to Safety – Protecting our Responders on Roadways

Taking place each year during the third week of June, Safety Stand Down highlights critical safety, health, and survival issues for the fire and emergency services. Departments and personnel are asked to suspend all non-emergency activities during the week to focus their attention on safety and health education and training. A week is provided to ensure all duty shifts can participate.

The 2020 Safety Stand Down takes place June 14-20. This year’s theme calls attention to the hazards that responders face while performing their duties on roadways. Operating in roadways continues to be some of the most treacherous incident scenes we respond to. This important initiative encourages everyone to refresh their techniques and learn new skills based on research and nationally recognized best practices.

Earlham Fire Rescue supports the Freedom Fest in their decision to postpone the Freedom Fest/150 year anniversary celebration. While we desire as much as anyone to get back to normal, there is still a lot of unknowns about this virus that we still haven’t had time to learn yet and we want everyone to be safe. Before Freedom Fest announced their decision, we had already decided that we would not have a pancake breakfast this year on the 4th. We look forward to the celebration in September. In lieu of donations that would have been made at the pancake breakfast, please consider supporting your local food banks.

We now have a positive tested case of Covid-19 in Madison County that is attributed to "community spread" meaning it can not be directly tied to contact with someone else that tested positive. Even with the county being allowed by Governor Reynolds to lift some lockdown regulations, please continue to make good choices about what you do and where you go to help decrease the spread of the virus and protect those who are most vulnerable to infection.

****To clarify, we do not know where in the county these cases are. That is protected health information that cannot be shared even with us.

4 additional cases in the past 24 hours which brings the total to 10. Please note there is now evidence of community spread and discontinuation of further press releases for additional cases.

As governors are trying to figure out how to ease back in to a new normal, please remember:

🛑 Some people don’t agree with the state opening.... that’s okay. Be kind.

🏡 Some people are still planning to stay home.... that’s okay. Be kind.

🦠 Some are still scared of getting the virus and a second wave happening....that’s okay. Be kind.

💰 Some are sighing with relief to go back to work knowing they may not lose their business or their homes....that’s okay. Be kind.

👩🏾‍⚕️Some are thankful they can finally have a surgery they have put off....that’s okay. Be kind.

📝 Some will be able to attend interviews after weeks without a job....that’s okay. Be kind.

😷 Some will wear masks for weeks....that’s okay. Be kind.

💅🏻 Some people will rush out to get their hair or nails done.... that’s okay. Be kind.

❤️ The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay. Be kind.

We each have a different story. If you need to stay home, stay home. But be kind .

If you need to go out, just respect others when in public and be kind!

Don’t judge fellow humans because you’re not in their story. We all are in different mental states than we were months ago. So remember, be kind.

Emerging Health Issues - Novel Coronavirus

Note from David Hopp, RN EMT and Rescue Captain:

Chief Shawn Boyle, Earlham Fire and Rescue members and I continue to work with, Earlham PD, City of Earlham, Dallas and Madison Emergency Management Teams, and local businesses to mitigate the COVID – 19 impact on our community.
I know that many people were stressed to learn that we have our first Covid-19 case in Madison County. I believe instead we should look at how well we have done in flattening the curve. The social distancing is working! The first 3 cases in Iowa were announced on 3-12-20. It took almost 3 weeks to have a confirmed case in Madison County. We know that Covid-19 will come to every community in Iowa, we need to focus on minimizing exposure by continuing to follow the guidelines of the CDC and the IDPH.

What an awesome community we live in!!!!! First off, I want to thank the community members for their support of the Earlham Fire and Rescue. We had 16 families provide a treat bag of goodies and a gift certificate to the Rusty Duck for our rescue members. Another individual purchased gift certificates to the Westside for each of our rescue members. The rescue members and I would like to thank each of you for your kind gifts. This is not necessary but much appreciated. We have had a generous donor give 150 dollars in gift certificates to each home in the city. This supports local businesses and also supports community members financially.

This also helps the health of our community by relieving some of the stress that Covid-19 has created. Our physical health is closely related to our mental health. Some of the things you can do to stay healthy are keeping a routine. I know it is easy to stay up late or get up late if you are not going to school or work. Try to get 8 hours of sleep a night, eat meals at regular times to avoid snacking all day out of boredom, make healthy food choices, and stay hydrated. Exercise every day with something as simple as a 30-minute walk, light yard work, wash some windows, or other projects that require physical activity. Physical activity has shown to improve physical health, decrease stress and lessen feeling of depression. We also need to “unplug” from all of the social media and news reports that are happening all day and night related to Covid-19. We need to be informed about but not consumed by Covid-19.

I will continue to ask that if you go to a business to meet your needs: please be sure that you are not feeling ill, that you do not have a fever, or cough. Maintain a 6-foot distance from others as you conduct your business. I would also ask that only one or two persons from a family enter the business and that we do not turn it into a social event.
-
We need to all follow recommendations for social distancing, good hand washing, stay home if you are ill, and do not meet in groups of more than 10. If you have any basic needs that are not being met such as food, shelter, or clothing, and you need help finding resources, please contact a rescue member or myself for assistance.

Please feel free to call me directly if you have questions, concerns, or needs. I can be reached on my cell 515-979-5130 or through the Madison County Sherriff’s office. Let’s continue to work together, project a positive outlook, and keep our community safe.

Regards

David Hopp RN EMT
Earlham Rescue Captain
