Did you know?

  • July is Fireworks Safety Month. Using fireworks under the influence of drugs or alcohol could lead to property damage, personal injury, or even death.
  • National HIV Awareness Month. Use of alcohol and drugs can impair judgement. Sharing needles for injecting drugs is one source for HIV transmission. Impaired judgement can lead to things such as having unprotected sex and can also lead to HIV transmission.
  • During the summer months we also need to be safety conscious. Boating safety and driving safety are both important considerations as we enjoy the summer months. Operating boats or motor vehicles under the influence can lead to injury or death. Be careful and don’t drink and drive or operate watercraft! Stay safe out there this summer.
