Summer is in full swing here in North Texas, and, tragically, so is one of the hazards of summer in Texas – kids in hot cars. In 2019, 53 children died in a hot car, seven were from Texas. So far this year, MedStar crews have responded to two incidents where a child was left in a hot car, both were under 3 years old.
With a total 135 child deaths, Texas ranks #1 as the state with the most child deaths in hot cars between 1991 and 2019.
From Kids and Cars:
On average, 39 children die across the U.S. each year from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside vehicles.
Even the best of parents or caregivers can unknowingly leave a sleeping baby in a car; and the end result can be injury or even death.
88% of the deaths are kids under 3.
56% were left in the car unknowingly.
28% got into an unlocked car.
Even with windows cracked, the interior temperature in a car can get to 125 degrees in minutes.
Tips to Help Keep Kids Safe:
Create a reminder to check the back seat.
Put something you’ll need like your cell phone, handbag, employee ID or brief case, etc., in the back seat so that you have to open the back door to retrieve that item every time you park.
Keep a large stuffed animal in the child’s car seat. When the child is placed in the car seat, put the stuffed animal in the front passenger seat. It’s a visual reminder that the child is in the back seat.
Keep car keys and remote openers out of reach of children.
Apps like WAZE have child reminders when you arrive at a destination you used a phone-based GPS to get to
If you see a child alone in a vehicle, get involved. Call 911 immediately. If the child seems hot or sick, get them out of the vehicle as quickly as possible.
AUSTIN - On average, one motorcyclist dies every day on Texas roads, and transportation officials are urging Texans to exercise caution and limit distractions while on the road, as traffic increases during the summer months.
The Texas Department of Transportation’s annual “Share the Road: Look Twice for Motorcycles” campaign, which begins this month, aims to alert drivers to the risks that motorcyclists face and suggests safety precautions motorists can take to protect motorcyclists and themselves. The campaign reminds drivers that motorcycles are small and can be hard to see. In 2019, 412 motorcyclists were killed in Texas, and more than 1,800 were seriously injured.
“The six-month period from May through October is the deadliest for motorcycle riders and accounted for 61 percent of motorcycle fatalities in Texas last year,” said TxDOT Executive Director James Bass. “That’s why we are urging drivers to Look Twice for Motorcycles-there’s a life riding on it.”
Safety experts say that crashes between motorcyclists and drivers often occur when drivers make left turns in front of an oncoming motorcyclist, misjudging the distance and speed of the motorcycle. Last year, 30 percent of Texas motorcycle fatalities occurred in an intersection or were intersection related.
TxDOT wants drivers to follow these safety tips to prevent vehicle/motorcycle crashes:
• Take extra care when making a left turn. It’s easy to misjudge the speed and proximity of an oncoming motorcycle. It’s safest to let the motorcycle pass to avoid turning in front of the rider.
• Pay special attention at intersections. Close to one-third of motorcycle fatalities happen at roadway intersections.
• Give driving your full attention. Even a momentary distraction, such as answering a phone call or changing the radio station, can have deadly consequences.
• Look twice when changing lanes. Check mirrors check blind spots and always use turn signals.
• Give motorcyclists room when passing them. Move over to the passing lane and don’t crowd the motorcyclist’s full lane.
• Stay back. If you are behind a motorcycle, always maintain a safe following distance. When a motorcyclist downshifts instead of applying the brake to slow down, it can catch drivers off guard since there are no brake lights to signal that they are reducing their speed.
• Slow down. As always, please obey the posted speed limit.
While doctors and researchers are rushing to find treatments and a vaccine for COVID-19, scammers are rushing to grab money from unsuspecting people anxious about Coronavirus. The latest fraud schemes use the names of federal agencies and offer free benefits from well-known companies. Bottom line, they are all bogus and could drain your bank account. Watch this short video from the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney's Office to help you avoid being ripped off in the name of COVID-19.

June 15, 2020 – Sadly, MedStar crews responded to 3 more drowning patients over the weekend. Sadly, one patient died.
This brings to 11 drowning patients between May 1st and June 14th this year. Between May 1st and June 14th 2019, we responded to 5 drownings.
This is a 120% increase in patients this year over last.
We encourage everyone to be especially careful as we enter the hot summer season – here are some tips to help prevent drowning tragedies:
• Learn to swim and teach your children to swim. Enroll in age-appropriate water orientation and learn-to-swim courses, as well as first aid and CPR courses.
o Local YMCAs and other locations such as Emler’s Swimming School offer classes for kids as young as 2 months old.
• Actively supervise children whenever around water – even if lifeguards are present.
o Momentary distractions such as phone calls, using the restroom, or someone at the door can provide enough time for a child to access the pool and quietly slip under water.
o Use a designated adult to be responsible for actively watching the pool or lake area.
Even use a visual cue for who is the designated watcher such having the water supervisor carry a life jacket as a reminder for both the watcher and those around them to prevent them from becoming distracted.
• If you have a pool, secure it with appropriate barriers
o Many children who drown in home pools were out of sight for less than five minutes and in the care of one or both parents at the time. Install a four-sided barrier, such as a fence with self-closing gates completely surrounding the pool.
o If the house forms the fourth side of the barrier, install alarms on doors leading to the pool area to prevent children from wandering into the pool or spa. Also install safety covers and perimeter or in-water alarms as additional layers of protection.
• Practice safe habits in and around the water:
o Teach children to always ask permission to go near water.
o Remove floats, balls and other toys from the pool and surrounding area immediately after use.
The presence of these toys may encourage children to enter the pool area or lean over the pool and potentially fall in.
o Know how and when to call 9-1-1.
Know how to respond to water emergency:
• Seconds count—learn CPR.
o CPR performed by bystanders has been shown to save lives and improve outcomes in drowning victims.
o The more quickly CPR is started, the better the chance of improved outcomes.
• If a child is missing, check the water first.
o Seconds count in preventing death or disability.
• If someone is in the water and needs help, reach or throw something out to them
o Don’t go in unless you are trained.
• If the drowning is in a lake, find a landmark where the victim went underwater that is not subject to wind or tides.
o Knowing where exactly to start a search will speed the process.
• Have rescue and first aid equipment available at the pool
o Such as reaching or throwing equipment, a cell phone, life jackets and a first aid kit.

Please join your city council and me on Tuesday evening [tonight] as we show our appreciation for Captain Jonathan Townsend. The NASJRB and Westworth Village have both greatly benefited from Capt.

Therefore, based on his outstanding service to Westworth Village, I will be issuing a proclamation declaring June 9, 2020 as Capt. Jonathan Townsend Day, making a special presentation and thanking him for his service to our community, our base and our country. This presentation will be made during the first 10 minutes of the 7 o’clock regular council meeting.
