October 18th-October 24th is National Teen Driver Safety Week. The focus of this week is on distracted driving awareness.

Distracted driving is SO much more than texting and driving. Distractions are anything that can take a driver’s attention off the task of driving: playing with the radio, eating or drinking, or having noisy passengers inside the car. Watch for additional social media posts this week. #NTDSW #teendriver #drivesafe

Today is National Move Over Day. North Shore Police Officers and Firefighters urge you to slow down and move over when you see flashing lights on the roadway.

Did you know that every state has a law requiring you to slow down and, when possible, move over if you see flashing lights on the side of the road? Traffic-related incidents continue to be one of the leading causes of death among on-duty law enforcement officers.

What do you need to do if you see flashing emergency lights?

*Immediately slow down;
*Move over if you can safely do so; and
*Switch to a lane that is not immediately next to the emergency vehicle, if possible.

Help spread the word among your family, friends, and on social media, #MoveOver.

Fire Prevention Week is here and it's time to "Serve up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!" North Shore Fire/Rescue wants to share some safety tips to keep you from having a cooking fire.

• Never leave cooking food unattended. Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling or broiling. If you have to leave, even for a short time, turn off the stove.
• If you are simmering, baking, roasting, or boiling food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you’re cooking.
• You have to be alert when cooking. You won’t be alert if you are sleepy, have taken medicine or drugs, or consumed alcohol that makes you drowsy.
• Always keep an oven mitt and pan lid nearby when you’re cooking. If a small grease fire starts, slide the lid over the pan to smother the flame. Turn off the burner, and leave the pan covered until it is completely cool.
• Have a “kid-free zone” of at least 3 feet around the stove and areas where hot food or drink is prepared or carried.

With school in session and the cooler temps, we're seeing outdoor tents popping up in the north shore. Tents have their own unique hazards and safety considerations, especially as we enter the heating season. North Shore Fire/Rescue requires permits for tents that are 400 square feet or more, or a tent used for cooking. If you're planning to use an outdoor tent or temporary structure, here are a few guidelines:
• Tents must be 10 ft from any other structure.
• Open flame cooking is not permitted within 10 ft of tent.
• Maintain aisle width of 36" within tent.
• Tent material must be flame proofed.
• No smoking allowed, and sign should be posted.
• Fire extinguisher required.

Visit our website (www.nsfire.org) for more information and permit forms.

That's just a snippet of what Wauwatosa Fire Department, North Shore Fire/Rescue, West Allis Fire Department, and neighboring fire departments experience during the training academy.

We train together, so that when an emergency call arrives, we have similar techniques and can respond seamlessly.

#Hero #Lifesaver alert. See it? It is the smoke alarm! Occupants were awoken to this early morning fire by smoke alarms just outside the bedroom and another in the living room. All occupants and pets were out of home upon Greenfield Fire-Rescue arrival. This could have been deadly, tragic without working smoke alarms.
Make sure you have smoke alarms outside sleeping areas and on every level of your home with good batteries, test them (push the button) and replace smoke alarms if older than 10 years old. We also recommend sleeping with the bedroom door closed as this can keep out smoke and heat (put a smoke alarm in the bedroom too. Never enough). If you cannot provide alarms, contact your local fire department. Smoke alarms work, lives depend on them.

***Joint Press Release***

This evening at 1735, Thiensville Police Department was advised by Ozaukee Sheriff Dispatch of a missing kayaker. The Thiensville Police Department immediately requested the Thiensville Fire Department respond with a boat to start searching the river for the missing kayaker.

The initial information received, was two friends were kayaking from Villa Grove Park in Mequon to Village Park in Thiensville. At some point during the trip, the pair became separated. One of the two friends successfully made it to Village Park. He was waiting for his friend to arrive at Village Park for approximately one hour. After an hour of waiting, the friend contacted Ozaukee Sheriff’s Department to report his friend missing.

Responding units, quickly requested the Mequon Fire Department Dive Team. They were requested to respond to Villa Grove Park and launch their boat to search south from that location.

While the Thiensville Fire Department was launching their boat from Village Park to the north, additional mutual aid was requested via the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) to the working still level. This requested additional resources from Cedarburg Fire Department, Germantown Wisconsin Fire Department, Village of Grafton Fire Department, Mequon Fire Department, North Shore Fire/Rescue, and Port Washington Fire/Rescue.

During this incident, the Thiensville Fire Department received two additional calls for service that were handled by the Cedarburg Fire Department and the North Shore Fire Department.

Further information was received by Mequon Police Department and Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department about the missing kayaker. One caller stated they saw a subject walking in backyards wearing a life jacket. By the time this information was reported, approximately one hour had elapsed from the initial spotting. The area was searched for that person but not one was located.

Thankfully, this incident had a positive outcome, as the missing kayaker was located and was uninjured.

This incident serves as a good reminder to make sure everyone in your group is aware of the starting and ending locations. Furthermore, it is important to notify others who will not be partaking in the trip to know the plan for the trip, the approximate total time of the trip, and to contact that person when it is completed. Technology has the ability to track cell phones via GPS. Had the missing kayaker had their cell phone on their person, Dispatch Centers could track their movement.

A special thanks to all the mutual aid partners that responded to assist and to the Thiensville Police Department, Mequon Police Department, Wisconsin DNR, and Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office.

A hot and humid day is ahead, with a Heat Advisory in effect from 1 PM to 8 PM. Later tonight, and line of potentially strong to severe storms is expected to move through the area. Damaging wind gusts and heavy rain will be possible.

If you happen to be spending the weekend outside camping, NOW is the time to think about where you will seek shelter from a thunderstorm, keeping in mind that tents and campers don't provide good protection from strong winds and falling trees! Also be sure to have multiple ways of receiving weather alerts.
