Summer Safety

 

  1. Hard Facts about Heatstroke

    • On average, every 10 days a child dies from heatstroke in a vehicle. In more than half of these deaths, the caregiver forgot the child was in the car.
    • A car can heat up 19 degrees in just 10 minutes. And cracking a window doesn’t help.
    • Young children are particularly at risk, as their bodies heat up three to five times faster than an adult’s.

    Top Tips for Preventing Heatstroke

    Reduce the number of deaths from heatstroke by remembering to ACT.

    1. Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving a child alone in a car, not even for a minute. And make sure to keep your car locked when you’re not inside so kids don’t get in on their own.  
    2. Create reminders. Keep a stuffed animal or other memento in your child’s car seat when it’s empty, and move it to the front seat as a visual reminder when your child is in the back seat. Or place and secure your phone, briefcase or purse in the backseat when traveling with your child. 
    3. Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations.

Respect Honor Remember

 

Join the California State Sheriffs’ Association Foundation in showing support for this year’s Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, May 6-12.  

 

We are extremely honored to have this opportunity to pay homage to the valiant officers who lost their lives in the line of duty this past year. During this particular week, thousands will come together at the State’s Capitol to support the family and friends of those who have passed.  

 

This is a special time to honor the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of public safety. We can never repay these courageous men and women, but we can recognize their bravery. We hope that you will join us and consider making a contribution to CSSAF.

Just Released: Project Report from MHSOAC

 TOGETHER WE CAN: Reducing Criminal Justice Involvement for People with Mental Illness

California’s Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) launched an eighteen month review of this issue and has just released the report, Together We Can: Reducing Criminal Justice Involvement for People with Mental Illness.

 

While not a comprehensive study of mental illness, it’s an actionable roadmap for change calling for California to make an immediate and strong commitment to address this complex issue. “One of the greatest policy failures of our time was dismantling our state mental health care institutions without having adequate community-based treatment in its place,” said MHSOAC Commissioner and Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown. “Our jails shouldn’t be used in place of treatment. We believe we should, and can, do better.”
