  • Today is World Wildlife Day

    We support the National Geographic Society animal preservation efforts with contributions earned through our first aid, cpr and safety product sales... learn about the great good they do!

    The National Geographic Society recently announced a partnership to protect the last remaining intact ecosystem in West Africa, Pendjari National Park.

    Learn more about how donations helped make this possible.

    Pendjari National Park in Benin is the last refuge for the region's largest remaining populations of elephant and critically endangered West African lion, along with cheetah, antelope, buffalo, and many other species—but this globally important area is under threat from poaching and other human pressures.

    With more support the National Geographic Society and  partners can help revitalize, protect, and preserve Pendjari's natural beauty and ensure wildlife like elephants thrive for generations to come.

    There's much more to learn about this exciting conservation initiative than we could include in one post, but you can enjoy the video and learn more about what support helps make possible.

    Watch how donor generosity is helping to protect the planet you love. Our planet's wildlife and wild places await you!
    Thank you, and Happy World Wildlife Day!

  • Fur doesn't keep them warm enough

    Pet's may have fur, but they can still get cold, sick, or die when it's too cold outside.

    We've share ideas on Winter Care for Pets and Pet First Aid, as well as Pet Thoughts and Preparing Your Pet for Evacuation - let's take another look and Pet Winter Safety...

    If it’s too cold for you, it’s probably too cold for your pet, so keep your animals inside.

    If left outdoors, pets can be susceptible to frostbite, hypothermia, become disoriented, or lost. Don’t leave pets alone in a car during cold weather, either. Cars can act as refrigerators that hold in the cold and cause animals to freeze to death.

    To help prevent cold weather dangers from affecting your pet’s health, follow this advice from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA):

    • Prepare your pet for winter. Learn more at ready.gov/pets   Prepare your pet for winter. Learn more at ready.gov/pets

       

      Never shave your dog down to the skin in winter, as a longer coat will provide more warmth. If your dog is short-haired, consider getting him a coat, sweater with a high collar, or turtleneck with coverage from the base of the tail to the belly.

    • Winter walks can become downright dangerous if chemicals from ice-melting agents are licked off of bare paws. Bring a towel on long walks to clean off stinging, irritated paws. After each walk, wash and dry your pet’s feet and stomach to remove ice, salt, and chemicals—and check for cracks in paw pads or redness between the toes.
    • Massaging petroleum jelly or other paw protectants into paw pads before going outside can help protect from salt and chemical agents. Booties provide even more coverage.
    • Make sure your pet has a warm place to sleep, off the floor and away from all drafts. A cozy pet bed with a warm blanket or pillow is perfect.

    Even if you try to create a safe place for them, pets left behind during a disaster are likely to be injured, lost, or worse. It is your responsibility as a pet owner to find out what type of shelters and assistance are available in your area to accommodate pets and to include pets in your disaster plan to keep them safe during an emergency.

  • Love at First Sight

    GobiWe've all heard stories of people walking into an animal shelter and locking eyes with "their" dog. People just know when they see their dog.

    According to Huffington Post, Edinburgh-resident Dion Leonard recently had a moment when he knew he had found his dog, but he wasn't in an animal shelter. He was in the middle of running a 155-mile race in the Gobi desert. The stray pup ran up alongside Leonard on day two of the race. She stayed by his side for 77 miles over the finish line and into his tent. Leonard decided to name his new dog "Gobi." He hopes to have her home in Edinburgh by Christmas since it takes four months to have Gobi cleared for entry, including a medical check and a period in quarantine.

  • Beyond ANSI First Aid

    We've spent the last few weeks "Doing the ANSI Scramble" as our clients have been gearing up and either upgrading their first aid kits, or purchasing new ANSI 2015 first aid kits in order to comply with the new ANSI Z308.1-2015 Standard— Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies, which changes first aid kit requirements for every organization in the USA.

    But is that the end of it? It depends.

    First, there are special needs for certain types of businesses, especially ConstructionRestaurants and Foodservice, and companies with Commercial Fleet Vehicles or Trucking. Moreover, some States have additional requirements (California being a good example) and OSHA and various States have special first aid kit and supply requirements for Logging operations and other specialty fields of work.

    And then... there's the new ANSI Standard itself. While it specifies the exact minimum content for business first aid kits, it leaves it up to the employer to decide whthere the should get a Class A or Class B first aid kit and further which type of first aid kit case.

    ANSI says:

    In deciding which class of kit is more appropriate for a given workplace, employers should consider the risks and task load of the work environment and the potential severity and likelihood of occurrence of an injury. Employers should also consider whether multiple first aid kits are needed, based on the number of employees, physical layout of the work environment and the remoteness of the worksite to emergency services.

    Further, they note that an employer may wish to add yet more content to augment the minimum fill for specific situational needs: "These same considerations can be taken into account when determining if a first aid kit should be augmented with additional supplies, as noted in the appendix of this standard."

    The additional first aid supplies they list (and thereby implicitly recommend) are:

    Supplemental First Aid Supplies for Consideration – Applicable Environments

    It is recognized that each work environment is unique and it is expected that a first aid kit containing the minimum required first aid supplies will be augmented with additional items or additional quantities of required supplies based upon the specific hazards existing in a workplace environment. The selection of such items should be based on the recommendation and consultation of a person competent in first aid and cognizant of the hazards and on the number of people found in the workplace. Federal, state and local requirements should be consulted, where appropriate. Augment kits with the following first aid supplies, as applicable:

    FIRST AID SUPPLY PURPOSE
    Low dose aspirin Used to treat suspected heart attack
    Hemostatic agent For individuals with compromised clotting or uncontrollable bleeding
    Electrolyte replacement Heat-stress related injuries
    Glucose replacement Diabetic or hypoglycemic episodes
    Analgesics (oral and/or topical)/anti-inflammatory Pain management; swelling control
    Hydrocortisone Itchiness and skin-related reactions including rashes
    Antihistamine Allergic reactions
    Foil blanket Treat shock and/or cold-stress related injuries

    • Assemble a pet disaster supply kit;
    • Talk with your pet’s veterinarian about emergency planning;
    • Plan with friends, neighbors, or relatives to make sure someone is available to care for or evacuate your pets if you are unable to do so; and

  • How do Hurricanes relate to Extreme Heat?

    This is Hurricane Preparedness Week and next week is Extreme Heat Week (May 23-27)... other than the fact that one immediately follows the other - there's another big safety concern connecting the two. Power.

    heatwave=powerHurricanes have the potential to bring down power lines resulting in power outages. Power outages during periods of extreme heat can be dangerous, and even deadly. A study done by CDC found that over 650 people die each year from exposure to extreme heat.

    Blackouts can last for days, interrupting source of food, water, and warmth Blackouts can last for days, interrupting source of food, water, and warmth

    To address the risks presented by extreme heat events, federal departments and agencies are aggressively pursuing ways to help state, regional, tribal, and local communities prepare for potential extreme heat events this summer. Additionally, there is a great opportunity from the White House for you to learn more. You are invited to attend a briefing co-sponsored by the National Security Council and the Office of Science and Technology Policy on increasing community preparedness to extreme heat. This briefing will be conducted via a webinar, which may be accessed at  and will take place on May 26, 2016, from 2:00PM to 3:30PM EDT.

    And in the event that you must evacuate due to a hurricane, never leave a child or pet inside a vehicle on a hot day ... not even for a moment. Even with cracked windows, interior vehicle temperatures can rise quickly within the first 10 minutes. "Look Before You Lock!dying of thurst

    The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you’re in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane. If you are, figure out where you’d go and how you’d get there if told to evacuate. You do not need to travel hundreds of miles. Identify someone, perhaps a friend or relative who doesn’t live in a zone or unsafe home, and work it out with them to use their home as your evacuation destination. Be sure to account for your pets, as most local shelters do not permit them. Put the plan in writing for you and those you care about.
