Back to School, Stay Safe
It has been one hell of a year and as the summer starts to wind down we are all preparing to head back into the fall with some pretty tense plans for school coming up. While some are warily ready to see their kids head back to school, others plan for online education from home a little longer. Even after such a hectic and crazy year with school shutting down early and a long time trying to adjust to a new normal, now is a better time than ever to make sure the whole family is prepared for an emergency.

Wasps, Hornets and Yellow Jackets, Oh My!

Wasps, Hornets and Yellow Jackets, Oh My!
It's not the lions or tigers that are the scariest part of the summer season. They’re barely bigger than a quarter, but even the biggest bear might flinch away from the bright yellow glow of the venomous insects that haunt yards and gardens all over. Insect repellent and protective clothing can only do so much, and although we do our best to avoid infested areas, there might be an incident once in a blue moon. Those who aren't allergic will only show minor reactions to a sting if they are unlucky enough to enrage the beasts. For others it is a life and death chance that can result in a panic induced trip to the emergency room if they aren't careful.

Proper Use of PPE: Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Home
It may be possible for someone to contract the COVID-19 virus through touching an infected surface and then directly transferring it to their body by touching their mouth, nose and/or eyes. Diligently cleaning high traffic areas and disinfecting well used surfaces such as countertops and door handles at regular intervals can reduce the chances of the virus being transmitted.

Proper Use of PPE: Gloves

Proper Use of PPE: Gloves
For the general public, the CDC recommends wearing gloves when you are cleaning or caring for someone who is sick. While running errands, or while out in the general public, using gloves is not usually recommended. Social distancing and washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds (or using hand sanitizer for 20 seconds) are considered to be the preferred methods of keeping your hands clean from bacteria while out in public. However, in combination with hand-washing, social distancing, and when used in the correct circumstances, gloves can be a nice supplemental tool to keeping safe from germs.

Proper Use of PPE: Masks

In the next few weeks, the CPR Savers Blog will be publishing instructions, tips, and tricks on how to utilize PPE effectively to help prevent the spread of infection, keeping you and your loved ones a bit more safe in this uncertain time.

Safe and Happy travels for the Holidays!
With the winter season upon us, even here in Arizona it is starting to get uncomfortably cold on this overcast, and rainy Tuesday morning. Especially during the early morning hours before the sun rises, with the traffic and Christmas lights dancing off the thin layer of treacherous water covering the dark asphalt- it is important that we stay cautious. We can only imagine how bitter cold it could be as ice melts on our jacket shoulders, we wait for the heater to work its magic, while feeling rushed to get to work for one last day before that exciting holiday where most companies and retail stores across the country close their doors, and employees can spend time with their families.
