Rattlesnakes Alert

June 25, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – California Poison Control System (CPCS) (http://www.calpoison.org) reminds Californians that with warm weather, rattlesnakes are more likely to be found on hiking trails and sunning in rural areas. Even baby rattlesnakes possess dangerous venom as soon as they hatch.

 

A rattlesnake bite can produce painful swelling, bruising, tissue destruction, bleeding problems and, in rare cases, can be fatal. Most bites occur between the months of April and October. (Click this link to hear the sound a rattlesnake makes (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/22/Rattlesnake.ogg).

 

Some rattlesnake bite prevention tips include:

  • Wear boots and long pants when hiking.
  • Stay on trails when hiking, away from underbrush and tall weeds.
  • Do not touch or disturb a snake, even if it appears dead.
  • Carefully inspect logs or rocks before sitting on them.
  • Never hike alone in remote areas. Always have someone with you who can assist in an emergency.
  • Teach children to respect snakes and to leave them alone!

 

 


Health Officials Issue Extreme Heat Precautions

The Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is urging people to prepare for extreme heat this summer by staying cool, hydrated and informed. On average, 675 deaths from extreme heat occur each year in the United States.

 

If you are exposed to high temperatures and humidity for too long you sweat heavily, and if you don't drink enough fluids, your body’s cooling system may fail. The result may be a heat-related illness, such as: heat stroke, heat exhaustion or heat cramps. People at increased risk include: older adults, those who work outside, infants and young children, the homeless and poor, and people who are sick or overweight.


Symptoms of heat-related illness may include: confusion, heavy sweating, weakness, headache, muscle cramps, rapid heartbeat, nausea or increased body temperature. If you or someone you know is suffering from heat-related illness, immediately move the affected person to a cooler location and attempt to reduce body temperature by loosening clothes, applying a cold compress and drinking water.

 

Pets are also at risk for heat-related illness. Protect your pets from extreme heat by providing ample shade and water, limiting exercise, and never leaving your pet in a parked car. Watch for signs of heat stroke, including: heavy panting, difficulty breathing, excessive thirst, lack of coordination, vomiting, lethargy, and profuse salivation.
Stay informed about extreme heat waves and safety tips by checking your local news. Keep your friends, family and neighbors aware of weather and heat safety information.
