Safety first when it comes to water sports

Safety first when it comes to water sports

With temperatures rising, more and more Californians are headed to beaches, pools, rivers and lakes to find some relief from the heat.

Water-related activities help make summer one of the most fun times of the year, but it’s important to remember activities around water can also be dangerous if precautions aren’t taken. The National Drowning Prevention Alliance says that many people who drown never intend to be in water and often drown within 10-30 feet of safety.

In a recent letter, Governor Jerry Brown Jr. shared that “10 people die from unintentional drowning every day.” The Center for Disease Control notes that drowning is the leading cause of death for kids five and younger and can cause permanent brain damage for those in near-drowning situations. The organization estimates that 3,400 people drown annually in the U.S.

The Rancho Cucamonga Fire District wants you to know the ABCs of water safety:

Active Adult Supervision
Experts will tell you every minute counts when it comes to supervision of children around water. RCFD encourages you to designate a “water watcher,” a single adult whose sole job it is to supervise children in and around the water. That adult should put away all reading material and electronic devices, and avoid human interaction, that could distract them from the important task in front of them. The designated watcher should be in close proximity to children under his or her watch to provide quick action if required.

Barriers
Pool owners should be sure to address pool safety. A fence will help keep children out of the pool area. Owners should ensure that gates are locked and nothing is around the fence to allow someone to climb over. An added safeguard would involve placing alarms on windows and doors that lead to the pool area.

Classes
Ensuring that children know how to behave in and around water can reduce their risk of drowning. It is also important that individuals get trained in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Knowing CPR can give someone in distress time needed for emergency personnel to arrive. It can save lives. If you’re interested in aquatic programs that teach swimming, check out the Chaffey College Summer Swim Program, the Cove Water Park, the City of Ontario Aquatics Program, the Claremont Club Swim Lessons, the City of Fontana Aquatics Program and the Riverside Aquatics Association. If you’d like to learn CPR in Rancho Cucamonga, check out the classes offered at the Fire Station and Goldy Lewis Center/Central Park.

Individuals participating in water sports should also:

• Have a cellphone handy in order to make a 9-1-1 call should the need arise

• Avoid placing confidence in inflatable flotation devices as a substitute for adult supervision

• Encourage use of life jackets when on or near water

• Swim only in designated areas and within the individual’s skill level

• Venture out with a swim buddy

• Avoid alcohol use

• Tell someone where you plan to boat, paddleboard or swim

• Avoid diving into water where you risk encountering hidden dangers that can cause paralysis and other injuries

• Skip late-night swims

The team at Foothill Auto Body wishes you a fun, safe summer on the water.

Tips for Traveling with Children During Road Trips!

Tips for Traveling with Children During Road Trips!

Foothill Auto Body is excited that the summer months will soon be upon us. What better time to take a road trip with the family. No matter what destination you choose there are a few things that will assist you with safe and pleasurable travels.

  • Fuel: Before you set out on your trip, take a look at a map and guestimate where you’ll need to stop and refuel. Find an interesting place to have a meal in the vicinity. We agree that historic diners and lakeside picnics make for interesting stops along the way. This will detour you from stopping and starting to your final destination. Combining gas stops with breaks saves a lot of time in the long run.
  • Boredom: If you are traveling with children on a long trip, boredom can easily set in. For longer road trips try playing trivia games or “I Spy” to keep from getting to restless. This is a great way to occupy time and spend quality time together.
  • Money Savings: Like most travelers, you may be looking for ways to cut back on your expenses. Pack plenty of pre-bought snacks and perhaps rent DVDs from your local library (often times free) to entertain the kiddos on the road.
  • Cleaning Supplies: Whenever traveling with a small baby or toddler you can bring along a box of denture cleanser tablets. They are great for cleaning pacifiers, baby spoons, sippy cup lids and anything else that is hard to sterilize while you are on the road.
  • Paperwork: Before heading out it is a good idea to make sure all of your identification, paperwork (driver’s license, registration, insurance) is up to date and securely tucked away in an easy to get to location like the glove box.
  • Exercise: When traveling with antsy children you may want to pack a toy bag with essentials to burn off some of their excess energy at road stops. Jump ropes, inflatable beach balls, a stop watch for running or sidewalk chalk for hopscotch and foursquare are a few items that may come in handy.
  • Entertainment: Every parent who drives with kids in the car needs to know about org, a worldwide automobile safety program that distributes free cell phone headsets to anyone who wants one. To get a free headset for your cell phone, you just need to sign up and select the make and model of the cell phone you use. They will send you a free headset, but you pay the shipping charges (about $5).
  • Hotels: If your road trip will require an overnight stay, take advantage of hotels that offer free breakfast to cut down on meal costs. It is also recommended that you acclimate your children with the hotel room. Take a few minutes after settling into a new hotel room to show them how to operate the hotel phone. Kids should know how to contact the front desk, how to get an outside line, and how to call for an ambulance.

Road Trip Safety 101

Road Trip Safety 101

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer and all the promise of summer road trips. Whether you’re heading out for a weekend or weeklong vacation, a few precautionary steps will ensure that those trips deliver on the fun.

  • Get your car a safety checkup.

Before you head out on the road, make an appointment with a trusted repair shop to have its health checked. Your mechanic can check your battery, hoses and filters, belts, fluids, tires, wiper blades, headlights and brake lights. You should also ask to make sure there aren’t any vehicle safety recalls on your vehicle and that your spare tire is in good shape and ready to be called into action if the need arises.

  • Plan your route to your vacation spot.

Ask yourself if you’ll drive straight through or if you want to make stops along the way. That decision will help you plot meals, gas, accommodations and adventure stops along your path. You can also choose the best routes from point A to point B. As you prepare for the trip, make sure you have maps at your fingertips. You can save an area from Google Maps or download an app, such as Maps.Me, to your electronic device to use in areas you may be unable to access the Internet. If you have a GPS system, be sure to take it with you.

  • Be sure to pack for safety and sustenance.

You should have a first aid kit and emergency car kit packed to handle basic health issues and vehicle breakdowns. Every prepared vacationer should tuck away things like bandaids, antibiotic ointment, pain relievers and an ice pack. The prepared traveler also has a tire iron, jumper cables and some backup fluids.

Also, don’t forget that a road trip isn’t complete without snacks. While most of us head out with a candy bar and large soda, you might want to think a bit more practically. Experts encourage travelers to pack two or three days worth of food and beverage per person. You should pack nutrient-dense foods like nuts, whole grain snacks, fruits and vegetables.

  • Get plenty of rest before you leave.

Tired drivers make mistakes. They have slower response time and their decision-making can be affected. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notes about 100,000 crashes each year are caused because of drowsy driving.

  • Tell someone about your fabulous plans.

Take one last step before you turn out the lights, start your car and back out of your driveway. You should let someone know the routes you’ll be taking on your journey, when you plan to arrive at each planned destination and your return date.

Happy and safe travels from your Foothill Auto Body team!

A Grateful Nation

A Grateful Nation

Many Americans know that May 30 is Memorial Day, the day a grateful nation honors those men and women who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country.

Did you know, however, that there is an entire month designated for Americans to honor and appreciate those who’ve been called to serve in a branch of the U.S. military?

In 1999, Congress established National Military Appreciation Month. Each May, Americans have an opportunity to show their appreciation for the men and women who serve and recognize not only the sacrifices they’ve made, but their successes as well. Legislators chose May because of the number of days established throughout the month to commemorate U.S. military achievements:

Updated in 2004, the legislation urged the U.S. president to issue a proclamation and encourage Americans to recognize servicemen and women through appropriate ceremonies and events. Today, the U.S. has 1.4 million on active duty and 800,000 plus service members in its reserves.

Our Foothill Auto Body team would like to take this opportunity to publicly say “Thank you for your service” to all veterans and all those who currently serve.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to shine a spotlight on Rancho Cucamonga’s own HomeStrong USA for its Heroes Home Programs. HomeStrong supports sustainable home ownership for active service members and honorably discharged veterans. Its Home Repair Grant Program is working to support service members and vets through health and safety home repairs such as electrical repairs, wheel chair ramps, accessibility modifications, lighting, plumbing, flooring, windows and drought tolerant landscaping designed to improve service members’ and vets’ quality of life.

Foothill proudly supports all men and women who serve in our armed forces. Happy National Military Appreciation Month from Foothill Auto Body!
