This has been a big topic circulating around the internet the past few days.

The quick answer is no, hand sanitizer cannot spontaneously ignite if left in your car. BUT, yes, it should still be considered a flammable liquid which should be stored carefully. In a car, that'd be in a center console or glove compartment.

We will extend giving masks to citizens of Pineville until 7pm, we run out or the weather forces us to shut down so that we can get masks to those that are working during the day and are unable to get masks.
REMINDER, The location will be in the parking lot next to station one located at Reagan & College Drive.
We ask that you enter the parking lot from the Reagan street side and exit left on to College Drive. We ask for the following;
1. Please have your drivers' license/ID ready and available to show you are a resident of the City of Pineville.

We will be giving out washable/reusable cloth masks donated by Hanes tomorrow April 28, from 8am until 12 noon or until all masks are given out. The location will be in the parking lot next to station one located at Reagan & College Drive.
We ask that you enter the parking lot from the Reagan street side and exit left on to College Drive. We ask for the following;
1. Please have your drivers' license/ID ready and available to show you are a resident of the City of Pineville. If outside the city check with the closest Volunteer department distribution location.
2. We ask that the head of the household gets a mask (the person doing the grocery shopping) and anyone who is considered high risk. A MAXIMUM of 2 masks will be given. Right now, there are only enough masks for about 40% of the parish. That’s why we’re pushing the head of household and high risk ONLY for now.

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, comparisons have been drawn to influenza. Both cause respiratory disease, yet there are important differences between the two viruses.

Both COVID-19 and influenza are respiratory illnesses, but COVID-19 has a higher chance of infecting more people. COVID-19 is also more likely to result in severe and critical infections than the flu.

Mortality for COVID-19 also appears higher than for the flu. Finally, no known cures or vaccines currently exist for COVID-19.

For more information on COVID-19 visit ldh.la.gov/coronavirus.

Watch for symptoms
Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.

These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure (based on the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses).

Fever
Cough
Shortness of breath
Person perspiring and thermometer indicating person has a fever, diagram of lungs, and person coughing
When to Seek Medical Attention
If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include*:

Trouble breathing
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
New confusion or inability to arouse
Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.

STATEWIDE BURN BAN ISSUED DURING PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY

BATON ROUGE- State Fire Marshal H. “Butch” Browning, in collaboration with Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain, have issued a statewide cease and desist order for all private burning, pursuant to authority under R.S. 40:1602. Private burning shall only be allowed by permission of the local fire department or local government. This order is effective as of 8 a.m., March 25, 2020 and shall remain in effect until rescinded.

“This burn ban is necessary to supplement the governor’s ‘Stay At Home’ order aimed at mitigating the spread of COVID-19 due to the anticipation that there may be an increase in open burning occurring across the state as families look for ways to pass the time at home,” said State Fire Marshal H. “Butch” Browning, “This order will assist in preventing potential fire-related dangers that could result in unnecessary fire service response as well as diminish airborne irritants caused by burning.”

This ban shall not apply to prescribed burns by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry, by those trained and certified by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry, or by those who conduct prescribed burning as a “generally accepted agriculture practice” as defined by the Louisiana Right to Farm Law
(R.S. 3:3601 et seq.).

Violation of this Fire Marshal order could result in criminal and/or civil penalties.
