Ah, springtime. That glorious time of year when you suddenly realize the lawn needs mowing, the garden needs weeding and the house could use a fresh coat of paint. But with many families’ budgets a little tighter this year, buying new spring-cleaning tools isn’t always possible.Using last season’s tools is a good idea, provided they’re in good condition and can be used safely. The last thing you want to do is take a trip to the emergency room. Yet that’s exactly where more than 350,000 people end up every year, thanks to injuries from improperly used ladders, lawn mowers and power garden tools. So before you get too ambitious, take a few precautions to help keep your family safer. www.safetyathome.com/seasonal-safety/seasonal-safety-articles/spring-cleaning-safety/

Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday. That means it’s almost time to move clocks forward one full hour to “spring forward” - and change the batteries in the smoke alarms, too.Every day, an average of nearly five people die in home fires. And 80 percent of fire deaths involving children occur in homes without a working smoke alarm.An early warning can provide critical extra seconds to escape.Smoke alarms double a family’s chance of getting out of a home fire alive - but only if they work. So don’t just replace the batteries. If smoke alarms are 10 years old or older, or if they were in the house when you moved in, replace them.Also, take the time to review the family fire escape plan and include these reminders: always have two ways out of every room, have a family meeting place and once you are outside, never go back in.Many fire departments offer assistance to residents to obtain smoke alarms or help with changing batteries on high ceilings. Contact your local fire department for assistance in your area.

Pennsylvania’s Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a yellow dot in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Health and Aging; the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and First Responders and local law enforcement.

Hands-Only CPR Facts· Hands-Only CPR has just 3 easy steps (1) Call 911; (2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest; (3) Use an AED, if available. · This simple message reduces barriers to training. It is easier to remember (compared to previous approach of teaching rescue breaths, etc), and emphasizes that you can save a life with very basic knowledge and skills. · Hands-Only CPR has been proven to be as effective as CPR with breaths in treating adult cardiac arrest victims. · The American Heart Association has recommended Hands-Only CPR for adults since 2008. · Everyone should recognize and know how to call 911, start chest compressions, and how to find and use an AED.
