Tri-Community Ambulance wishes you and your family a happy and safe July 4th holiday!
Remember to keep the fireworks and other pyrotechnics to the professionals! According to the NFPA, in 2013, fireworks caused an estimated 15,600 reported fires in the U.S., including 1,400 structure fires, 200 vehicle fires, and 14,000 outside and other fires. Additionally, according to the CPSC, more than one-third (35%) of the people seen in emergency rooms for fireworks injuries from June 20-July 20, 2014 were under 15; nine percent were under five.

It is hard to believe that we are almost at the start of the holiday season! In one short week, our season of thanks, caring and giving will be upon us, starting with Thanksgiving!
Holidays and gatherings should be all about family, friends, cheer and fellowship. Did you know that according to the NFPA, Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires? To help ensure a safe and enjoyable day, Tri-Community would like to stress some basic safety tips for you and your family:
1) Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop
2) Don't leave home when you have items in the over or on the stove
3) Keep children away from hot food and liquids
4) Keep the floor clear of debris that can become a tripping hazard
5) Keep knives, lighters and other hazardous items away from children
Lastly, make sure your smoke detectors are working! Early detection is key to get your family to safety and prevent further losses of property!
Take the time to watch this informative video from the NFPA about Thanksgiving safety!

Who is excited for the extra hour of sleep this weekend? Your neighborhood friendly responders sure are!
Tri-Community reminds everyone that when you change your clocks, you should also change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors!
This upcoming Sunday (November 6, 2016) at 2am, clocks are turned BACKWARDS 1 hour for Daylight Saving Time. While most cell phones automatically change the time over for you, please remember to change those batteries this weekend as well!
Have a fun and enjoyable weekend!

Happy Halloween to our friends and neighbors! Tri-Community Ambulance wishes everyone a safe event tonight!
A few items to remember:
1) Always check your treats before you eat them! You can never be too safe!
2) Always have reflective clothing on when out collecting your treats.
3) Children, always trick or treat with an adult.
4) Always have your cell phone with you....and remember to dial 911 if there is an emergency
5) Always look LEFT-RIGHT and LEFT again before crossing the street. Never assume motorists see you, always let them pass by first!
6) Always watch where you are walking. Sidewalks and grounds may be uneven or slick!
7) Always trick or treat during your jurisdictions designated hours!

I never thought this time would come where I would have to update everyone to let you know that my son is now in Hospice. Our goal is to stay home and keep Nathan as comfortable as possible however we may have to go the hospice hospital to get him well enough to come back home. He is suffering greatly with massive headaches, severe nausea, and overall disabling deficits you couldn't possibly imagine. Ive never asked or ever wanted more prayers and I'm asking all of my friends family and acquaintances more now than ever before prayers. My family is suffering my husband is suffering,my children are suffering his dad is suffering, and I am suffering, and cancer is devastating our family and our life but most of all my 19 year old young man who deserves all of the best in this entire world. Please pray for him please keep him in your thoughts and when you have a bad day please say a prayer for him and know that it isn't as bad as you may think it could be at times. I am asking that everyone give our family the time we need and the privacy we need to spend with our son and getting through this difficult time. Nathan's request was to always make sure that I update people and make them aware of how horrible this disease can really be. At some point I will but in the meantime we are trying to make him comfortable and trying to give him the best quality of life that he has left please pray for all of us and pray for all of those sick with cancer god bless each and everyone of you.
