  • Healthy and Safe Swimming Week

    The week before Memorial Day (May 20–26, 2019) is Healthy and Safe Swimming Week. The goal of this awareness week is to maximize the health benefits of swimming by minimizing the risk of illness and injury. Just 2.5 hours of physical activity every week, including water-based physical activity, can benefit everyone’s health. Each of us plays a role in preventing illnesses and injuries linked to the water we swim, play, relax in, and share. Swimming is a fun, healthy way to stay physically active and spend quality time with family and friends. Healthy and Safe Swimming Week highlights the roles that swimmers, parents of young swimmers, aquatics and beach staff, residential pool owners, and public health officials play in preventing disease outbreaks, drowning, and pool chemical injuries.

    Why Is Healthy and Safe Swimming Week Important?

    Injuries caused by mishandling pool chemicals:
    Pool chemicals are added to maintain water quality (for example, to kill germs). Each year, however, mishandling pool chemicals when treating public or residential/backyard pools, hot tubs/spas, and water playgrounds leads to 3,000–5,000 visits to U.S. emergency departments.
    For more info, visit CDCs Pool Chemical Info.

    Illnesses caused by the germs in pools, hot tubs/spas, and water playgrounds:
    During 2000–2014, nearly 500 outbreaks were linked to pools, hot tubs/spas, and water playgrounds. Most of the outbreaks were caused by germs Cryptosporidium (or “Crypto”), Legionella, or Pseudomonas. Healthy swimming is not just about the steps pool operators and pool inspectors take—so let’s all do our part to help keep ourselves, our families, and our friends healthy.
    For more info, visit CDCs Healthy Swimming Info.

    Drowning:
    Each day, two children younger than 14 years old die from drowning. Drowning is a leading cause of death for children 1–4 years old. we want to remind you about drowning prevention. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental injury or death in children under the age of 5. Drowning can be quick and silent. It's a fallacy that the act of drowning is accompanied by screams or splashing, making proactive prevention crucial. To help prevent drownings, please remember to have active adult supervision, never swim alone, make sure your pool is fenced with self-closing/latching gates, and most of all keep a Pool / Lifeguard First Aid Kit on hand.
    For more info, visit CDCs Water Injuries Info.

    Harmful algal blooms:
    Algae can grow in warm, nutrient-rich fresh- and marine water. An abundant growth of algae that harms people or animals is referred to as a harmful algal bloom (HAB). HABs in fresh- and marine water can produce toxins that cause a variety of symptoms including skin irritation, coughing, sneezing, diarrhea, stomach pain, numbness, and dizziness. Symptoms vary depending on the type of HAB toxin and the type of exposure, such as skin contact, ingestion by eating food or drinking water contaminated with HAB toxins, or breathing in tiny droplets or mist contaminated with HAB toxins.
    For more info, visit CDCs HAB Toxin Info

    Naegleria fowleri “the brain-eating ameba”:
    Naegleria fowleri is a microscopic ameba (a singlecelled living organism) that is commonly found in warm freshwater such as in lakes, rivers, and hot springs. If water containing the ameba goes up the nose forcefully, the ameba can invade and cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM).

  • WRN severe weather and flooding

    WRN Ambassadors-

    As severe weather and flooding continue to impact much of the central U.S., we encourage all ambassadors to proactively engage your employees, stakeholders, and social network on how to be "Weather-Ready" for near-term threats and those on the horizon.

    (1) National Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 5-11, 2019)

    As part of National Hurricane Preparedness Week, the hurricane hunter aircraft are visiting five communities along the east coast. Learn more here!

    Did you know?

    • Over half of the water-related fatalities during the 2016-18 hurricane seasons were vehicle-related.
    • All five storm surge fatalities in Hurricane Michael last year were over the age of 60 years. Have a plan to assist the elderly and others most vulnerable.
    • Dangers exist even as the storm passes and skies clear - downed power lines, carbon monoxide from generators, and health complications from the cleanup.
    • Category 1 hurricanes since 2010 have caused 175 direct deaths and over $100 billion in damage in the U.S. Significant impacts aren't just caused by major hurricanes.

    (2) Flooding Threat Continues across Central U.S.

    • As the saying goes, "if it can rain, it can flood." Help your community as a WRN Ambassador prepare, respond, and recover from flooding events by taking advantage of our flood safety content and staying aware of the latest conditions on weather.gov and information from our Weather Enterprise partners.
    • Follow local weather forecast offices on social media. Learn how here.

    (3) Discover Other Awareness Weeks in Your Area

    • Some states have hurricane awareness weeks planned for June and July
    • Guam/Northern Marianas have "Typhoon Awareness Week" May 13-17
    • Other hazards, such as lightning, wildfires, rip currents, safe boating, and cold water (i.e., hypothermia due to river, lake, or ocean cold water) have state awareness weeks as well. Find safety content for all of these hazards here.
