World Water Day should be every day! Every Drop Counts!

 

We wake up in the morning, take a shower, brush our teeth, grab a cup of coffee and head out for the day. Water is an important part of our daily lives and we use it for a wide variety of purposes, but do we really understand how much we use?
Sometimes it's easy to forget that we also use water in ways we don't see every day. Water is used to grow our food, manufacture our favorite goods, and keep our businesses running smoothly. We also use a significant amount of water to meet the nation's energy needs.

Encourage your family and friends to take the pledge to save water.

Do you live in aTsunami flood zone?

 

The County’s Office of Emergency Services mailed new maps and information to the more than 30,000 homes and businesses in San Diego County’s potential tsunami flood areas. Using new information developed by state disaster experts, the County for the first time targeted specific addresses that could be at risk in a tsunami.

“If you get one of these brochures, that means your home or business might be affected by a tsunami flood surge,” County OES Director Holly Crawford said. “We’re asking people to take a couple minutes to review the brochure and to keep it where you can refer to it if an approaching tsunami ever forces you to evacuate."

The maps was created by the California Office of Emergency Services and the California Geological Survey allowed the County to identify which addresses are at risk in the worst-case tsunami scenarios expected here. If you didn’t receive a map and you are interested in the information, you can visit the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services and select where it says: New Maps, Evacuation Route Information to Addresses in Tsunami Zones. The new maps and information will help the public plan. If you did not receive a tsunami mailer, you are most likely do not live or work in a potential tsunami flood area. But spring is here and the shore calls. The new city-specific maps, and everything you and your family needs to prepare for tsunamis and other disasters are at ReadySanDiego.org . By visiting this website you can also register or get the app to get the latest news and alerts if a disaster occurs.

Ice cream products La Tapatia, Inc. Recalls Products
Because of Possible Health Risk

 

 

Helados La Tapatia, Inc., of Fresno, California, is voluntarily recalling all ice cream products, popsicles, fruit bars/cups and bolis due to a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes. Helados La Tapatia, Inc., is coordinating closely with regulatory officials.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The products were distributed in Arizona, California, Nevada, Washington, Guam and Canada in retail stores. The products are sold under the brand names of Helados La Tapatia and Icesations.
No illnesses have been reported to date. The recall was the result of a routine inspection program by the U.S. FDA which revealed the presence of the bacteria on certain food processing equipment.
