Staying safe in the kitchen during the season of feasts.

Thanksgiving

For most, the kitchen is the heart of the home, especially during the holidays. From testing family recipes to decorating cakes and cookies, everyone enjoys being part of the preparations.

 

So keeping fire safety top of mind in the kitchen during this joyous but hectic time is important, especially when there’s a lot of activity and people at home. As you start preparing your holiday schedule and organizing that large family feast, remember, by following a few simple safety tips you can enjoy time with your loved ones and keep yourself and your family safer from fire.

Safety tips

  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Celebrate responsibly--don't drive drunk.

DUI Enforcement car at night

We're deploying extra DUI patrols. It's the season of holiday parties, and we want to see you all safe in 2018. That's why the Roseville Police Department will have extra DUI enforcement officers out on the weekends throughout the holiday season. 

DUI doesn't just mean booze.  You can also be arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana or impairing prescription drugs.  Don't risk it--designate a driver or call a sober friend or a taxi/ride service for a safe ride home. 

Be a DUI spotter. See a drunk driver/erratic driver? Call 911. An officer will respond and check it out.


Kids in the Kitchen.

Kids in the Kitchen

Do your kids like helping out in the kitchen and cooking up tasty snacks for your friends and family? Preparing yummy treats can be lots of fun, but it's important that kids who like to cook know how to be safe in the kitchen.

  • Get ingredients out of the refrigerator
  • Measure and mix ingredients together in a bowl
  • Wash fruits and vegetables off under cold water

Kids 6-8 can:

  • Open Packages

      Halloween Safety Tips
      With all the excitement that Halloween brings, children may forget many of the safety rules you have taught them.  Therefore, it is important to carve out some time before your children head out the door on Halloween to remind them of the safety rules that you expect them to follow. Here are a few safety tips to go over with your kids before they head out:
      Never get into strangers’ cars no matter what the person says. If your child is old enough to go out on Halloween with friends, make sure that he/she has a pre-programmed cell phone with all-important numbers. Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep their head up and walk, don’t run, across the street. If your older children are going out without an adult, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when you want them home. Tell your child to only go to homes with an outside light on, and never enter a home or car for a treat. When crossing the street remind your child not to assume drivers will stop. Motorists may have trouble seeing trick-or-treaters.  Just because one car stops does not mean others will. Tell your child not to eat any of their treats until you have checked them. Law enforcement should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity. Motorists need to take extra precautions when driving on Halloween night.  Here are a few tips to remember:
      Do not use a cell phone or other electronic device. Even with hands-free devices, a driver’s attention is not totally focused on driving when talking on the phone. Avoid distraction by waiting until you are parked to call, text, or surf. Drive below the posted speed limit in residential areas during trick-or-treating hours. Watch for children darting into the street.  Kids can cross the street anywhere, and most young pedestrian deaths happen at spots other than intersections. Do not pass other vehicles that have stopped in the roadway. Children could be crossing the street, or parents may be dropping off children. Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing. Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic, and turn on your headlights earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.  
      LOOK. LISTEN. LEARN. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.
      Every year, the majority of fire deaths in North America happen at home. Today’s home fires burn faster than ever. In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. It is important that you and your family take the time to prepare so that should a fire happen in your home, you can get out safely.  
      Your family can start by making sure you have a home fire escape plan:
      • Home fire escape planning and drills are an essential part of fire safety. A home fire escape plan needs to be developed and practiced before a fire strikes.
      • A home escape plan should include the following:
         o Two exits from every room in the home – usually a door and a window
         o Properly installed and working smoke alarms
         o A meeting place outside, in front of the home, where everyone will meet after
      they exit
         o A call to 9-1-1 or the local emergency number from a cell phone or a neighbor’s phone.

      Chain of Survival Award
       
      On July 10, Roseville Fire responded to a vehicle accident on Olympus Point at Sierra College Blvd. The driver of the vehicle required extensive extrication and patient care from our crews. While we usually tell you about our department’s role in an incident, this time we are able to tell you about the “Chain of Survival” for one of the patients that was highlighted at an event yesterday. 
       
      Yesterday, Sierra Sacramento Valley EMS Agency brought together at Sutter Roseville Hospital:
      - An off duty Police Sergeant from a neighboring City who was on his way home when he came upon the accident. The patient’s car was on fire with the patient trapped inside. The Sergeant was able to extinguish the fire before first responders arrived on scene and provide scene safety. 
       
      - Roseville 9-1-1 Dispatchers were recognized for their work in professionally fielding 9-1-1 calls from bystanders of the accident and quickly sending the appropriate resources to the scene,
       
      - The firefighters who arrived on scene to find one patient who has been able to self-extricate from the vehicle and another patient trapped in a severely damaged car with multiple injuries. The patient was unconscious as firefighters provided life saving medical care inside the vehicle, while rapidly and efficiently extricating him from the wreckage.
       
      - Paramedics and EMT’s from AMR who responded to the accident to provide additional medical care and transported the patients to the hospital,
       
      - Members of the emergency room team of doctors and nurses who although not able to be at the event were recognized for their tremendous work treating the patient on the evening of the accident,
       
      - Members of the ICU team where the patient was transferred after the ER, 
       
      - Occupational, Physical and Cognitive Therapist that have helped the patient to rehabilitate to where he is today. 
       
      The “Chain of Survival” begins as soon as an incident occurs and 9-1-1 is initiated.  This instance is just one example of how a strong “Chain of Survival” can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of a traumatic incident.  In this instance the patient and his family were able to join in the event and while the patient still has a long road to a full recovery, he has made tremendous progress so far.
       
      Now you can freeze your credit for free
       
      Last year 148 million Americans had their personal information stolen as part of the Equifax data breach.  Victim’s Social Security number, name, address and credit card numbers were compromised.  As a result Congress put together legislation to give consumers more control of their credit report.
       
      On May 24, President Trump signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act which took effect on September 21, 2018.  This new law allows all Americans to freeze and unfreeze their credit report for free. 
       
      If you are concerned about identity theft, you might want to consider a credit freeze.  Here’s what new on credit freeze from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). 
       
      Free credit freezes
       
      What is it?  A credit freeze restricts access to your credit file, making it harder for identity thieves to open new accounts in your name. Usually you get a PIN to use each time you want to freeze and unfreeze your account to apply for new credit. What’s new? Prior to September 21, credit freeze in California cost $10 per credit bureau. Now it is free to freeze and unfreeze your credit file.  
      Free child credit freezes
       
      What is it? A child credit freeze allows you to freeze a child’s credit file until the child is old enough to use credit. What’s new? Previously, some states did not allow you to freeze a child’s credit file. Now, no matter where you live, you’ll be able to get a free credit freeze for children under age 16.  
      Year-long fraud alerts
       
      What is it?  A fraud alert will tell any business that runs your credit that they should check with you before opening a new account. What’s new?  Previously, fraud alerts lasted 90 days.  Now, an initial fraud alert will last for one year. It will still be free, and identity theft victims can still get an extended fraud alert for seven years.  
      Things to consider before freezing your credit report
       
      A credit freeze does not:
       
      Prevent you from getting your free annual credit report. Keep you from opening a new account, applying for a job, renting an apartment, or buying insurance.  However, if you’re doing any of these, you’ll need to lift the freeze temporarily. It’s free to lift the freeze and free to place it again when you’re done accessing your credit.  Prevent a thief from making charges to your existing accounts. You still need to monitor all bank, credit card and insurance statements for fraudulent transactions.  
      How to "freeze" your credit report
       
      Go to each of the credit bureau websites and locate the “security freeze” link.
       
      For Equifax: www.equifax.com/personal/credit-report-services/ For Experian: www.experian.com/freeze For TransUnion: www.transunion.com/credit-freeze  
      If you are considering freezing your own credit, don’t forget you can freeze your child’s credit, too.  A child's Social Security number can be used by identity thieves to apply for government benefits, open bank and credit card accounts, apply for a loan or utility service, or rent a place to live. This could potentially go undetected for many years until he/she grows up and starts applying for credit, only to find a big mess.  Taking a few minutes now to freeze your credit and your child’s may prevent bigger issues down the road.

      Smoke Alarms Help Save Lives
          Approximately two-thirds of home fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms. Since most fatal fires occur at night, it's essential that every home has working smoke alarms to provide an early warning. Working smoke alarms increase the chance of surviving a home fire by 50 percent.
      Learn more about smoke alarms, including how to test them and where they should be installed here.
      Medicare has completed issuing new cards to its California members
       
      Medicare has finished issuing new Medicare cards to its members in California.  The Social Security number (SSN) based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) has been replaced with an 11-character Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI), which is made up of numbers and uppercase letters.  Each MBI is randomly generated and the characters do not have any hidden or special meaning.
       
      Once you receive your new Medicare card with an MBI, you can use it right away and destroy your old card.
       
      Beware of scammers
       
      If someone contacts you and says you need to pay for your new Medicare card, it’s a scam!
       
      According to Medicare’s website:
       
      “Medicare will never call you uninvited and ask you to give us personal or private information to get your new Medicare Number and card. Scam artists may try to get personal information (like your current Medicare Number) by contacting you about your new card. If someone asks you for your information, for money, or threatens to cancel your health benefits if you don’t share your personal information, hang up and call us at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).”
       
      If you have a parent or relative on Medicare, ask them if they have received their new Medicare card. If not, have them contact Medicare for more information at 1-800-MEDICARE.
