SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOUTH

The Sturgeon Bay Police Department is working in collaboration with local schools and local law enforcement agencies to address issues youth are facing with technology.

A quick reference informational sheet of some current apps being used by youth was created to help parents understand what their kids are using. It also has some really good links to websites with great information for parents & guardians. By understanding the apps, this will help communicate with your child about how they be misusing the app or what they may be exposed to.

May is National Stop the Bleed Month and May 23 is National Stop the Bleed Day.
No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from major blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care before EMS professionals are able to assist.
You may be able to help save a life by taking these simple actions immediately after the trauma

The EMS Week theme for today is Safety! We would like to remind everyone of this very important safety law that often gets broken. Always, always, always move over when passing emergency vehicles on the road. If it is not safe to move over, please slow down and pay very close attention to what is going on around you(and we dont mean looking at the accident scene to see what happened).

May 19 – 25, 2019 National EMS Week
The department would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to our Paramedics and EMTs for their dedication to the community. We also want to recognize the EMRs that serve their local communities.
The 150+ EMRs serve on 11 different departments from the county line to Washington Island. These EMRs are vital to the EMS system in our county by providing life saving skills in minutes and being a familiar face to their neighbors during their time of need.
The department also extends our appreciating to all county Fire Departments, Law Enforcement agencies, Dispatchers, and DCMC ER staff. The ability of our department to deliver the highest level of patient care only happens because of the teamwork of all of Door County’s Public Safety personnel.
EMS Strong: Beyond the Call is the theme for EMS week this year. While our departments do a tremendous amount of good for the public, we do not do enough for our county’s responders after the call. Our department understands we have a lot of work to do on this front. We are working to form partnerships and develop programs that will serve all public safety in the county.
Thank you for your dedication to the community.
Have a great EMS Week.
Director Aaron LeClair

Its National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, April 14-20, 2019.

The members of Door County EMS would like to recognize the Dispatchers of Door County. They are a major player in everything that we do to serve and assist the residents and visitors of Door County. Dispatchers have a tough job, they are expected to know everything, see the future, and provide instant access to information, with 100% accuracy, all from a darkened room sitting in front of computer screens and talking to voices that belong to faces they will never see.
Dispatchers are the unsung heroes of public safety, the kind voice in the middle of the night, the calm voice of reason.
Thank you to those who dedicate their lives to serving the public when you call 9-1-1, and being the "Calm voice in the chaos."

Great advice from Door County Sheriff's Department for Prom weekend.

Prom season is here. The Door County Sheriff’s Office has some tips for teens and parents to help ensure that they have a safe and memorable prom night.

Teens:
• Make good choices. Stay sober and make great memories with your friends.
• Travel safe. Do not become distracted while behind the wheel.
• If you are tired or are in an uncomfortable situation, call for a ride.
• If you notice someone has been drinking, do not let them get behind the wheel.

Parents:
• Talk to your teen about the prom night experience and problem solve around difficult situations that may arise.
• Establish prom night rules for your teen.
• Do not allow your teen to attend post prom parties that will be serving alcohol.
• Do not host a party where alcohol is served to teens. You could face serious fines and even jail time.

Have fun and stay safe!

A clipper system will bring an accumulating snow to the region Sunday night and Monday. A winter storm watch is in effect for locations south of a Tomahawk to Wausaukee line. Snowfall totals over 6 inches are likely south of this line with the highest amounts across the Fox Valley east to the lakeshore.
