HOT water can cause serious injury or death, especially to kids!

HOT water can cause serious injury or death, especially to kids!

Please take a minute and read the following information from childrenshealthnetwork.org

The leading cause of deaths and injuries to children at home is accidents. Hot water burns can put a child in the hospital or even cause death. The burns happen most often in the bathroom and tend to be more severe because a larger portion of the body is burned.

Children ages 4 and younger are at the greatest risk for death from a burn. They may get badly burned because they are not able to get out of water is that is too hot. Here are some tips:
•When using tap water, always turn on the cold water first, and then add hot water. When you turn the water off, turn the hot water off first. Teach your child to do the same.
•Always test the water before your child gets into the tub or shower.
•Don't let young children to touch faucet handles during a bath.
•Make sure all faucets are properly labeled “HOT” or “COLD.”
•Don’t use a hot steam vaporizer. It can cause steam burns. Use a cool mist vaporizer instead.
•Never leave a child alone in the bathroom for any reason. They could get burned by hot water or drown.
•Set the thermostat on your water heater on low or no higher than 120°F (49°C) or lower. A child can be scalded in 2 to 3 seconds in water that is only 5 degrees warmer than this

National Training Center

As of January 1, 2012 all funding for the National Training Center (NTC) has ended. We will not be hosting any classes at this time.

The NTC was the vision of Congressman Tom Latham in who worked to secure funding in 1997 with the first classes beginning in November of 1998. Since that time, 23,699 officers have received valuable training in the 885 classes that were put on. These classes were free of charge for the officers attending. They have covered topics ranging from drug investigations, interviews and interrogations, court room testifying, marksmanship instructor, and SWAT training. Officers from 42 states have attended classes at the NTC.

“We hope that in the future we can secure funds to get the National Training Center running again. The training provided there benefitted officers from departments that normally would not have been able to afford these types of classes. We greatly appreciate all the support that Congressman King and Senators Grassley and Harkin have provided over the years,” said Doug Young, Chief of Police for the Sioux City Police Department.

“We got the most training that we could for the funds we were provided. My biggest goal was to make sure that officers were not only trained on how to do their jobs better but more importantly, get him safely,” Sergeant Mike Hamm said. Sgt Hamm directed classes and training at the NTC.
