Chain of Survival Award

ssv 1

 

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

Credit Card

 

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.

 

 

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

   
smokealarm

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.


Midicare card

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.

      Thanksgiving safety tips.
      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.
      Here are some safety tips to keep you and your family safe this holiday season:
      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.
