IRS Scam


The scammers are at it again.

When you get a call from a person claiming to be from the IRS insisting you owe back taxes or you will be arrested, hand up immediately. Their latest scam, callers impersonating Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Treasury Department employees are demanding payments not only on iTunes Gift Cards but on other gift cards as well. Scam callers may also request payment of taxes on Green Dot Prepaid Cards, MoneyPak Prepaid Cards, Reloadit Prepaid Debit Cards, and other prepaid credit cards. These are fraudulent calls, hang up immediately.

No legitimate United States Treasury or IRS official will demand that payments via Western Union, MoneyGram, bank wire transfers, or bank deposits be made into another person’s account for any debt to the IRS or Treasury.

Please visit

to see the latest scam being used.

After you hang up on the caller, visit

to report the call.



Extreme Heat
Heat Stroke
 

With Heat indexes so high in our area, being outdoors for prolonged periods of time can be detrimental to everyone, including pets. 

The following information from FEMA helps you understand what precautions and early warning signs to take!  We all want to be outside ……winter’s coming!!!
 
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heat stroke occurs when the body is unable to regulate its temperature. The body's temperature rises rapidly, sweating mechanism fails, and the body is unable to cool down.
     
Do you know the signs of heat stroke? While warning signs may vary, symptoms may include:

  • An extremely high body temperature (above 103 degrees Fahrenheit);
  • Red, hot, and dry skin (no sweating);
  • Rapid, strong pulse; 
  • Dizziness. 

According to the CDC, if someone experiences signs of a heat stroke, have someone else call for immediate medical assistance while you begin cooling the person by: 

  • Getting him or her to a shady area; and/or

  • Immersing the person in a tub of cool water, placing him or her in a cool shower, or spraying the person with cool water from a garden hose. 

Be sure to monitor the person’s body temperature, and continue cooling efforts until the body temperature drops to 101-102 degrees Fahrenheit. If emergency medical personnel are delayed, call the hospital emergency room for further instructions. Don’t give the victim fluids to drink.

If emergency treatment isn’t provided, heat stroke can cause death or permanent disability. To learn more about this and other heat-related illnesses, visit the CDC website.

For questions about extreme heat safety, check out the CDC’s list of FAQs.
