  • Parents' Day


    What Is Parents’ Day?

    Many Americans are unaware that our nation has a new day of commemoration called Parents’ Day. This is good news for America’s parents and families. In 1994 President Bill Clinton signed into law the resolution unanimously adopted by the U. S. Congress establishing the fourth Sunday of every July as Parents’ Day, a perennial day of commemoration similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. According to the Congressional Resolution, Parents’ Day is established for “recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.” The establishment of Parents’ Day was the result of a bipartisan, multiracial and interfaith coalition of religious, civic and elected leaders who recognized the need to promote responsible parenting in our society and to uplift ideal parental role models, especially for our nation’s children. Since the creation of this annual day of commemoration, local faith communities, elected officials and activists throughout the nation have creatively launched many activities around the theme of Parents’ Day designed to celebrate and strengthen the traditional, two-parent family. The National Parents’ Day Council does not envision Parents’ Day to be yet “another” day to honor parents, but rather a day when parents honor their children and the God-centered family ideal by rededicating themselves to manifest the highest standard of unconditional true love.

    Family Emergency Readiness

  • Family Preparedness

    With National Parents’ Day this Sunday, we thought this would be a good time to remind you to take specific actions to prepare your family for emergencies.

    Some of these actions include:

    • Family PlanCreating a family emergency communication plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it’s important to plan  ahead about how you will connect with each other;
    • Building a disaster supply kit.  A disaster supply kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. You may need to survive on your own after a disaster. This means having your own food, water, and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it might take days; and
    • Practicing your emergency response plan. Making emergency plans is great, but practicing your plan by conducting drills will help your family’s response time when seconds count.

    Disasters can be stressful for kids. Try to make emergency planning fun for children in your family! Visit for exciting games, quizzes, and other resources to help young children and teens understand the importance of being prepared.

  • Moonies

    Moon-landiingOn this day in 1969, what was one small step for man was indeed a giant leap for mankind. At 10:56 p.m. EDT, Neil Armstrong took the first steps on the moon, 240,000 miles away from his home planet. That was the very first time anyone had stepped foot on the moon. Caught on tape by a video recorder attached to the Eagle craft which carried the astronauts, Armstrong is seen stepping down from the ladder to the dusty surface of the strange new landscape. "Buzz" Aldrin joined soon after, taking photographs of the terrain and planting the U.S. flag in the

  • Zika in the USA: Not Travel Related???

    Uh Oh:

    CDC assisting Utah investigation of Zika virus infection apparently not linked to travel

    insectrepellents-animatedCDC is assisting in the investigation of a case of Zika in a Utah resident who is a family contact of the elderly Utah resident who died in late June. The deceased patient had traveled to an area with Zika and lab tests showed he had uniquely high amounts of virus—more than 100,000 times higher than seen in other samples of infected people—in his blood.  Laboratories in Utah and at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported evidence of Zika infection in both Utah residents.

    State and local public health disease control specialists, along with CDC, are investigating how the second resident became infected.  The investigation includes additional interviews with and laboratory testing of family members and health care workers who may have had contact with the person who died and trapping mosquitoes and assessing the risk of local spread by mosquitoes.Zika

    A CDC Emergency Response Team (CERT)  is in Utah at the request of the Utah Department of Health.  The team includes experts in infection control, virology, mosquito control, disease investigation, and health communications.
