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.

Meals on Wheels / Home Instead Senior Care Foundation® Pledge

Almost 75 percent of the people surveyed said they only sit down for a family meal with senior loved ones for special occasions, events or holidays.
They say a big part of the problem is time – both not having enough of it and conflicting schedules.

To encourage families to make time for these meals, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation® will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels America (up to $20,000 total through July 31, 2015) for each person that commits to regularly scheduling family dinners at SundayDinnerPledge.com.
Pledging to have a sit-down dinner with loved ones will help to ensure other seniors will have a quality meal through the Meals on Wheels program.

For more information visit SundayDinnerPledge.com or call your local Home Instead Senior Care at 530-895-6100

Flu Season & Vaccination Locations BCPH

Lab Confirmed Flu Cases Mark The Start of Flu Season in Butte County | Butte County Public Health

Flu activity is on the rise in Butte County with more than 16 lab confirmed flu cases reported by local healthcare providers. Since December 1st, severe flu cases have led to four hospitalizations in Butte County. The flu vaccine is still available at many pharmacies and clinics.
Flu season typically peaks in January or February and can last as late as May. For millions of people each year, symptoms of flu illness can vary from mild to severe, including: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, and fatigue. Severe flu complications can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Flu viruses are constantly changing from one season to the next. Vaccines released for this year’s flu are not as well matched as vaccines in the past, but are still an important step in protecting you and your loved ones and may reduce the severity of flu symptoms.
http://flushot.healthmap.org

In addition to getting vaccinated, you and your family can help prevent spreading the flu by:
- Avoiding close contact with sick people
- Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze
- Washing your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- NOT touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Staying home from work or school if you have flu like symptoms

 

A free flu vaccination clinic will be offered by the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) on Tuesday, January 27, from 2:00-4:00pm at 202 Mira Loma Drive in Oroville.
No appointments are necessary. Vaccines are available for people 6 months of age and older, including pregnant women. Both the flu shot and nasal spray vaccine (FluMist) will be available.

Become a Foster Parent

CHANGE A LIFE, BECOME A FOSTER PARENT!

Mountain Circle sincerely appreciates the amazingly generous Butte County Foster Parents!

There is no better gift to give a child than a family. With the holidays approaching there are many children in Butte County in need of warmth, love, shelter and a caring environment.
In Butte County alone there are over 500 children in Foster Care. Many of these children sadly are placed in homes outside of their community because there aren’t enough foster parents in Butte County. DREAMS don’t work unless you DO, adopt a child to make their dreams come TRUE!

If you are interested in learning more about becoming a foster parent please call     1-844-540-8618 or you can also visit http://www.mountaincircle.org/adopt.htm  Don’t forget to check Mountain Circle’s daily updates posted on our Facebook page! Mountain Circle can help you become a certified foster parent, we can answer any questions and teach you ways to help children in need.
