Summer is here - and it has been hot!

July 1, 2013

From: Allen James

Summer is here and it has been hot! Have you prepared your family and employees to protect themselves from the heat and sunburn? We’ll speak further about this later.

We have been very busy this first half of 2013 and I want to thank our new clients along with our returning clients for their business. This increased business has allowed us to help organizations that have been hit hard by budget cuts – like the “Sequester” – to maintain their CPR and First Aid training requirements at a reduced fee. Organizations like Head Start and high schools, and out-lying communities, are ignored by nationally, well-known CPR training organizations, but have been helped by us because of your engagement of our training programs. Please network out to other businesses and tell them of our services. For those of you who have not yet enjoyed the benefits of our services, please visit our website and send us any questions you may have.

We have quality instruction with a focus on orchestrating learning that includes a process on how to ”think” about an emergency and then providing a “tool box” of CPR and First Aid skills. This training prepares your employees to respond to both corporate and individual emergencies and enables them to prepare their families for natural disasters. What a wonderful benefit to pass onto your employees’ families.

The Summer Threats are Dehydration and Sunburn.

The biggest threat of dehydration and sunburn is to our children – but don’t leave out the adults in the crowd. This can happen to anyone. The answer is to manage your time in the heat for work and play with applications of sunscreen.

Look for sunscreen products that protect you from UVA (skin cancer) & UVB (burns) radiation. There is no such thing as “Waterproof”; there is only “Water Resistant” that protects you from 40 to 80 minutes. Replace sunscreen every 60 minutes using SPF 35 to 55. Everybody can get skin cancer and everyone can get burned.

The first signs of dehydration in children are dry month, fussiness, and muscle cramps. For adults and children, this can be followed by signs of shock, high body temperatures with little sweating along with headache and dizziness. Treatment is to get the person out of the heat and slowly bring the body temperature down while letting them sip water – no chug-a-lugging water – they will throw up. If conditions worsen, call 911.


Be Safe!
