Tar and Feathers!

Not to worry!! There are no angry crowds on the streets of Louisville -

as a matter of fact it's quite the opposite:

Big Thank You to our city crew for fixing our roads!

You might've noticed that some streets in Louisville were tarred in preparation to be re-paved, then big trucks brought hot asphalt and huge machines were rolling it down.

It was steamy outside for several weeks now, laying hot asphalt is not an easy job in these conditions. Undoubtedly, the road crew is working hard to get it all done by the next weekend - July 31st, when Louisville BUILD organization hosts the annual city event  Last Hot Sunday in July.

Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass Reminds Caregivers of the Dangers to Children Alone in Cars
21 Deaths This Year and Summer Heat Waves Call For Extra Care with Children

Papillion, NE- At the mid-point of summer with hot temperatures throughout the country and more than 20 child deaths so far from hyperthermia, Safe Kids Sarpy Cass reminds caregivers to never leave children alone in vehicles.

According to a national survey done by the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS) 45 percent of parents think it is “very unlikely” a child in their neighborhood could “die from the heat after being left alone in the car,” yet on average this occurs 38 times a year. With the support of the GM Foundation, Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass and the network of 600 coalitions and chapters across the nation are helping to educate parents and caregivers by providing prevention information. Parents need to understand how quickly a car can heat up, how  susceptible children are to heat, and what they need to do to help prevent these tragic deaths.

Since March, 21 children have tragically died from being trapped in a sweltering car or truck. It can happen at temperatures as low as the mid-50s. But with heat waves across the country, these horrific incidents are happening far too often.

In addition, Safe Kids coalitions across the U.S. are working diligently, hosting “Never Leave Your Child Alone” presentations distributing brochures, tip sheets, posters and flyers. Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass offers free “Never Leave Your Child Alone” safety presentations to parent groups in Sarpy and Cass Counties. These presentations feature a display thermometer that shows the temperature inside and outside the vehicle.

"As these tragedies continue to occur, Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass has redoubled its efforts to get the message out that the inside of a vehicle is an extremely dangerous place for a child to be alone," said Jane Husz, Safe Kids Coordinator, Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass. “The inside of a car acts like a greenhouse, a place no child should be alone. Because children’s bodies heat up by as much as five times faster than adults, this makes them much more susceptible to heat stroke.”

Although most would assume this would never happen to them, there is no common description of the caregiver that has experienced this tragedy. It has happened to the rich and poor, educated and less educated, women and men, city dwellers and suburbanites, and in every state but Wyoming.

“Reaching parents and caregivers with these safety messages will no doubt help keep kids safe. These heartbreaking incidents can happen to anyone and public E-mail: [email protected]

education is vital to combating these preventable occurrences,” said Jane Husz Safe Kids Coordinator, Sarpy/Cass.

Record temperatures mean that cars heat up very quickly. On an 80 degree day, the temperature inside of a car can rise 20 degrees in 10 minutes. “The bottom line is that there are ways to prevent these deaths. Actively look in cars and trucks in parking lots and call 911 immediately if you see a child unattended in a vehicle.” Says Jane Husz, Safe Kids Coordinator, Sarpy Cass.

Here’s what parents and caregivers need to know and why.

Lock cars and trucks. Thirty percent of the recorded heat stroke deaths in the U.S. occur because a child was playing in an unattended vehicle. These deaths can be prevented by simply locking the vehicle doors and putting keys out of reach to help assure that kids don’t enter the vehicles and become trapped.

Create reminders. Many child heat stroke deaths occur because parents and caregivers become distracted and exit their vehicle without their child.

To help prevent these tragedies parents can:
• Place a cell phone, PDA, purse, briefcase, gym bag or something that is needed at your next stop on the floor in front of a child in a backseat. This will help you see your child when you open the rear door and reach for your belongings.
• Set the alarm on your cell phone/Smartphone as a reminder to you to drop your child off at day care.
• Set your computer calendar program to ask, “Did you drop off at child care today?” Establish a plan with your child care provider that if your child fails to arrive within an agreed upon time that you will be called within a few minutes. Be especially mindful of your child if you change your routine for child care.

Dial 911 immediately if you see an unattended child in a car. EMS professionals are trained to determine if a child is in trouble. The body temperature of children rises 3 - 5 times faster than adults, and as a result, children are much more vulnerable to heat stroke. Check vehicles and trunks FIRST if a child is missing.

Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass works to prevent unintentional childhood injury, the leading cause of death and disability to children ages 1 to 14. Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass is a member of Safe Kids Worldwide, a global network of organizations dedicated to preventing unintentional injury. Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass was founded in 2006 and is led by Sarpy/Cass Dept of Health and Wellness.

Dear Louisvillians,

Thank you for inviting me into your homes and hearts every Wednesday when the latest Louisville Newsletter arrived in your e-mail inbox.  I appreciate the opportunity to provide you with the news, events and happenings of Louisville and the surrounding communities.  It was a pleasure to be a part of our community, as I worked to serve you with the news that I received and passed along to you via the weekly newsletter.  At this time, I'm choosing to focus my time and efforts in other directions--namely, my career as a teacher and more importantly, my roles as a mother and wife.  So, I will be on a hiatus from the weekly newsletter, and Irina Harrington will be doing a fantastic job as Louisville Editor in the meantime.  However, I'll still be out and about in the community and school...you can't get rid of me THAT quickly!  :)  Thanks again for your patience, your loyalty and the praise and comments that you passed along to me.  All was appreciated, and again, thank you for everything, Louisville.  I feel blessed to be part of such an outstanding community. 

Your (past) Louisville Newsletter Editor,
Paula Anderson
