Salmonella illness is more common in the summer. Warmer weather and unrefrigerated foods create ideal conditions for Salmonella to grow. Be sure to refrigerate or freeze perishables (foods likely to spoil or go bad quickly), prepared foods, and leftovers within 2 hours. Chill them within 1 hour if the temperature is 90°F or hotter.

PRESS RELEASE

June 4 is Heat Awareness Day

WINTERSET, Iowa--The Madison County Emergency Management, Madison County Public Health Department, Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and National Weather Service are recognizing June 4, 2020, as Heat Awareness Day in the state of Iowa.

Heat Awareness Day is an opportunity to remind Iowans that heat can be very dangerous. It is the number one weather-related killer in the U.S. with an average of 136 heat-related fatalities each year. On average, 39 children die yearly from pediatric vehicular heat stroke, and in over half of these deaths, the caregiver had forgotten the children were in the vehicle.

Some tips for beating the heat:
Install temporary reflectors, such as aluminum foil covered cardboard, to reflect any heat back outside.
Install window air conditioners snugly.
Use a circulating or box fan to spread the cool air.
Stay indoors as much as possible.
If working outdoors, take breaks regularly in shade or in air conditioning if possible.
Wear sunscreen.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, regularly. Limit alcohol intake as it can cause dehydration.
Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
Avoid strenuous activities, especially during peak heating hours.
Do not leave people or pets in a hot car, no matter how long. Temperatures inside a vehicle can climb very quickly, even on milder days.
Check on family and neighbors, particularly those who are elderly or don’t have air conditioning.

For more information and tips on hot weather safety, visit www.beready.iowa.gov, and www.weather.gov/dmx/.

Madison County Fair 2020 Update
As we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Madison County Fair Board along with Madison County Extension and Outreach and Madison County Emergency Management are working collaboratively to make the best possible decision for the 2020 Madison County Fair. As we continue to plan for a fair in July, a committee has been formed to evaluate options for this year to meet the needs of our youth and community. Information available from the State of Iowa, County Health, Iowa Association of Fairs, 4-H, and FFA will be used to evaluate options. A decision regarding the 2020 Madison County Fair will be made in the next month and will be communicated via our normal channels - madisoncountyfair.net, Madison County Fair, Iowa page (@MadisonCountyFairIowa), Madison County Fair Instagram account (@madctyiafair), Madison County Fair Twitter (@MadCtyIaFair), County Extension email distribution lists, and local newspapers. In the meantime, we encourage youth to keep working on projects as our intent is to have a fair, even if it looks different from previous years. Thank you to all invested in the Madison County Fair and we ask for your continued patience as we work through the details.
