  • Make sure to protect children from sun exposure

    Most children love playing outdoors. However, they do not know the importance of sun safety. Excessive, unprotected sun exposure is especially dangerous to children. Did you know 80 percent of lifetime sun exposure occurs before the age of 18. One in five Americans develops skin cancer. Too much lifetime exposure increases the risk of melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, later in life.

    Summer is upon us, and temperatures are beginning to heat up. While that may be welcome news for many, combinations of high humidity and excessive heat can be dangerous for others, especially older adults.

  • Moisture, heat can lead to hay bale fires

    Hay bale or barn fires can be prevented if hay is baled at appropriate moistures and temperatures are monitored of recently baled hay.

    Generally, hay will go through a heating phase within one to two weeks after baling. During this time, monitor the hay to make sure it does not reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.
