When the fireworks re-ignite and the dumpster is on fire, it could extend to the garage and residential structure. It is important to soak them for at least 24-hours prior to putting them in the trash can. Even then it is important to not have the trash can against the house, in the garage, or near dry brush that would allow a fire to extend. </span> </span> <span class="EOP SCXW60318391 BCX8" data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;font-size:11pt;line-height:19.425px;font-family:calibri, calibri_embeddedfont, calibri_msfontservice, sans-serif;"> </span> </p> </li> </ul> </div> <div class="OutlineElement Ltr SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;overflow:visible;cursor:text;clear:both;direction:ltr;font-family:"segoe ui", "segoe ui web", arial, verdana, sans-serif;font-size:12px;"> <p class="Paragraph SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px 0px 0px 48px;padding:0px;vertical-align:baseline;background-color:transparent;color:windowtext;"> <span data-contrast="auto" lang="EN-US" class="TextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;font-size:11pt;line-height:19.425px;font-family:calibri, calibri_embeddedfont, calibri_msfontservice, sans-serif;"> <span class="NormalTextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;"></span> </span> <span class="EOP SCXW60318391 BCX8" data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559685":720,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;font-size:11pt;line-height:19.425px;font-family:calibri, calibri_embeddedfont, calibri_msfontservice, sans-serif;"> </span> </p> </div> <div class="ListContainerWrapper SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;font-family:"segoe ui", "segoe ui web", arial, verdana, sans-serif;font-size:12px;"> <ul class="BulletListStyle1 SCXW60318391 BCX8" role="list" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;overflow:visible;cursor:text;font-family:verdana;"> <li data-leveltext="-" data-font="Calibri" data-listid="1" data-list-defn-props="{"335551671":0,"335552541":1,"335559685":720,"335559991":360,"469769226":"Calibri","469769242":[8226],"469777803":"left","469777804":"-","469777815":"hybridMultilevel"}" aria-setsize="-1" data-aria-posinset="0" data-aria-level="1" role="listitem" class="OutlineElement Ltr SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px 0px 0px 24px;padding:0px;overflow:visible;cursor:text;clear:both;direction:ltr;display:block;font-size:11pt;font-family:calibri, calibri_msfontservice, sans-serif;vertical-align:baseline;"> <p class="Paragraph SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;vertical-align:baseline;background-color:transparent;color:windowtext;"> <span data-contrast="auto" lang="EN-US" class="TextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;font-size:11pt;line-height:19.425px;font-family:calibri, calibri_embeddedfont, calibri_msfontservice, sans-serif;"> <span class="NormalTextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">Secure your pets-</span> <span class="NormalTextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">: </span> <span class="NormalTextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">Not only do they get spooked by fireworks and run away from your property, but there have been several instances where dogs have bitten people while the fireworks were going off.</span> </span> <span class="EOP SCXW60318391 BCX8" data-ccp-props="{"201341983":0,"335559739":160,"335559740":259}" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;font-size:11pt;line-height:19.425px;font-family:calibri, calibri_embeddedfont, calibri_msfontservice, sans-serif;"> </span> </p> </li> </ul> </div> <div class="OutlineElement Ltr SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;overflow:visible;cursor:text;clear:both;direction:ltr;font-family:"segoe ui", "segoe ui web", arial, verdana, sans-serif;font-size:12px;"> <p class="Paragraph SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px 0px 10.6667px;padding:0px;vertical-align:baseline;background-color:transparent;color:windowtext;"> <span data-contrast="auto" lang="EN-US" class="TextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;font-size:11pt;line-height:19.425px;font-family:calibri, calibri_embeddedfont, calibri_msfontservice, sans-serif;"> <span class="NormalTextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">Captain </span> <span class="NormalTextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;">Kimberly Ragsdale of</span> <span class="NormalTextRun SCXW60318391 BCX8" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;"> the Phoenix Fire Department emphasized the importance of public awareness: “Every year, we see injuries that could have been prevented with proper education and precaution.

Phoenix Fire Department New Heat Illness Treatment Toolhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/3140Fire6/20/2024 8:20:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3140/BK3A9673-Enhanced-NR.jpghttps://youtu.be/V_6ygBrd5GwPhoenix Fire Department New Heat Illness Treatment Tool<div class="ExternalClassC7629A4172BB4CAEAC249852214AD7CD"><html> <p>​​​<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">This summer, the Phoenix Fire Department has introduced a new and innovative approach to treating heat victims: Cold Water Immersion. These specialized ice bags are being used to rapidly cool down individuals suffering from extreme heat-related illnesses, offering a quick and effective method to manage the often-dangerous effects of extreme heat.</span></p> <p>The cold-water immersion is used when a patient's temperature surpasses 104 degrees and they present with altered mental status. Once the patient is fully immersed in the ice, firefighter-paramedics constantly reevaluate vital signs including their temperature. The patient is removed from the bag when their temperature drops to 101 degrees. </p> <p>Since May 1st, every response vehicle within the Phoenix Fire Department has been outfitted with the equipment and necessary tools to integrate this method into standard protocol for dealing with heat-related emergencies. Training for the proper application and monitoring of this method has been provided to ensure effectiveness and safety to all 1,800 Phoenix Firefighters.</p> <p>At the beginning of May, one bag a week was used on average. Now nearing the end of June, the bags are used roughly three times a day. </p> <p>“This is a collaborative effort," Captain Rob McDade added. “We've worked with local E.R.'s, local doctors, our own medical director, our EMS department – we looked at how can we help those that we serve having critical heat emergencies?"</p> <p>As the excessive heat becomes more frequent and intense, this simple yet effective measure plays a crucial role in saving lives and enhancing emergency response capabilities. </p> <p>And the impact has already been seen. </p> <p>Battalion Chief Austin Moreland works within the Emergency Medical Services section and helped deploy this new program and training. He said, “We've already seen people who were extremely hot this year, who last year they might not have made it – and because of these efforts this year, they're leaving the hospital with no deficits."​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireVideofire
