The BRADD Citizen Corps Council’s mission is to educate the public on being prepared for disasters.  They accomplish this in many ways.  They produce a quarterly newsletter with information on upcoming events, articles on preparing for certain disasters and information on past events.  They also provide  Community Emergency Response Team training that educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety and suppression, light search and rescue, and basic first aid and disaster medical operations.  These skills can be used to assist family, friends, neighbors and co-workers during and after a disaster. Although most lightning victims survive, people struck by lightning often report a variety of long-term, debilitating symptoms. In 2011, there were 26 fatalities and 187 injuries from lightning (Lightning - What you need to know). Most lightning deaths and injuries occur when people are caught outdoors in the summer months during the afternoon and evening. There are things you need to know (do link to Lightning: what you need to know flyer attached) to reduce your risk of being struck.   

Barren River District Health Department Releases Strategic Plan for 2013-15:

The Barren River District Health Department (BRDHD) has released its Strategic Plan for 2013-15. The primary goal of the plan is to ensure that - whatever the nation, state, or local community asks of the BRDHD over time - the agency has the communication skills, concern for accuracy, organizational awareness, service orientation, leadership, and teamwork needed for effective performance.

Help Improve Bicycling in the Bowling Green Area:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, together with the Bowling Green-Warren County Planning Commission and researchers from Western Kentucky University's Department of Geography & Geology, are working to better understand how to plan for the needs of cyclists in the community.

 

You can help! Download the CycleTracks application for iPhone- or Android-capable smart phones, and use it to record your bicycle trips. The CycleTracks application uses your phone's internal GPS to record trip routes and times. At the end of each trip, data (including the trip purpose, route, date, and time) are collected for analysis. All personal data is optional and confidential.

 

CycleTracks would love for you to record each and every bicycle trip you take. The more you record, the more they will be able to accommodate you in the future. Feel free to record as many or as few trips as you want, however.

 

For more information, visit the CycleTracks website.
