Phoenix Parks Partners with IMPACT Melanoma to Bring Awareness to Skin Cancerhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/3141Parks and Recreation6/21/2024 6:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/3141/El-Oso-Sunscreen-Dispenser.jpgPhoenix Parks Partners with IMPACT Melanoma to Bring Awareness to Skin Cancer<div class="ExternalClass308CA226358745318F801EEEA515EEE4"><html> <p>​The City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is proud to announce a partnership with IMPACT Melanoma, a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing skin cancer. This collaboration aims to enhance sun safety practices at various splash pad locations across the City by providing free sunscreen to park visitors.<br></p> <p>The decision to initiate this partnership comes as a response to the pressing need for increased awareness and prevention of skin cancer, particularly melanoma, which poses a significant health risk in Arizona's sunny climate. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 100,640 individuals in the United States will be diagnosed with melanoma in 2024 alone.</p> <p>"Our desert environment exposes us to intense UV radiation, making sun protection a critical aspect of public health," said Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department Cynthia Aguilar. "By joining forces with IMPACT Melanoma, we are taking proactive steps to ensure the well-being of our community members and promote sun-safe behaviors."</p> <p>“IMPACT Melanoma is thrilled to partner with Phoenix Parks and Recreation to share melanoma prevention education and provide free sunscreen at neighborhood splash pads," said IMPACT Melanoma Executive Director Deb Girard.</p> <p>Under this partnership, IMPACT Melanoma will supply six portable sunscreen dispensers to be strategically placed at select splash pad locations throughout the City. These dispensers will be regularly maintained and refilled with sunscreen throughout the 2024 splash pad season, which runs from May 25 to October 1.</p> <p>The six splash pad sites participating in this initiative include:</p> <ul> <li>Altadena Park - 3711 E. Altadena Ave.</li> <li>Margaret T. Hance Park – 67 W. Culver St.</li> <li>El Oso Park - 3451 N. 75th Ave.</li> <li>Mariposa Park - 3150 W. Morten Ave.</li> <li>Nuestro Park - 1433 S. 9th St.</li> <li>Trailside Point Park - 7215 W. Vineyard Rd.</li> </ul> <p>The partnership agreement was unanimously approved by the Parks and Recreation Board, reflecting the collective dedication to safeguarding public health and promoting sun safety practices. As summer approaches, this collaborative effort stands as a testament to the City's commitment to the well-being of its residents.​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parksNews
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/fireVideo
