Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

With the beginning of summer upon us, thoughts turn to fun in the sun and water.  For infants and toddlers, that can mean tragedy.  In California, drowning is the number one killer of chidren under the age of four, according to the Infant Swimming Resource of Sacramento.

In addition to providing the safest pool environment possible such as constant adult supervision, fences, covers, and alarms, ISR suggests a program of swimming self-rescue lessons as additional prevention to protect children from accidental drownings.  Children as young as 7 months old learn to hold their breath under water, roll onto their backs and float unassisted.  Older children also learn to swim with their head down, roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe and roll over again to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool to crawl out. 

These skills are taught by certified instructors to assure that a day

Grilling safety tips for Memorial Day weekend

Grilling safety tips for Memorial Day weekend

Memorial Day weekend marks the start of grilling season and the California Department of Public Health wants everyone to have a delicious and safe BBQ experience. This video features Food Safety Chief Pat Kennelly providing grilling safety tips to keep you and your family healthy all season long! Ensuring that the food you serve is safe is as simple as following these practical approaches:

  • Wash your hands with warm, soapy water before and after handling food.
  • Make sure your utensils and food contact surfaces are clean.  Never put fresh vegetables or ready to eat foods on cutting boards or platters used for raw meat or poultry unless the surfaces have been thoroughly washed with soap and water.
  • Thaw your frozen meat and poultry in a refrigerator, not on the kitchen counter.  Make sure that juices from thawing meats cannot drip onto other food in the refrigerator.

Offensive El Dorado gravestones will be replaced

PLACERVILLE, CA - The solution seemed simple, but it took 90 minutes of debate to arrive at it.

Following a lengthy public hearing Tuesday, the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan to replace 36 racist headstones in the Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery with markers that are both more sensitive and more accurate.

Three dozen graves from the Negro Hill Cemetery were moved in 1954 by the U.S. government to make way for Folsom Lake. 

Plain stone markers on the relocated graves carried the inscription "UNKNOWN - MOVED FROM NIGGER HILL CEMETERY BY US GOVERNMENT - 1954."
