You’re excited about your boating excursion. After all, having a boat is all about fun in the sun, making memories and taking advantage of the beautiful lakes or rivers in your area. But emergency situations can occur while boating due to accidents, weather or illness. Being prepared with the right first aid equipment and emergency gear for your boat each and every outing is important. While stocking your boat with the right size life jackets is always a must, there are other necessary items that you should never leave the dock without. Having the right safety equipment, first aid products and proper fire extinguishers for the type and size of your boat are imperative. Fire Extinguisher Requirements for Boats on Iowa Waters All boats operating in federally controlled waters must have a Type B fire extinguisher on board if the following conditions exist: Inboard engine Double bottoms not sealed to the hull or not filled with floatation materials Enclosed living spaces Closed compartments where flammable or combustible materials may be stored Permanently installed fuel tanks The boat is propelled by a motor larger than 10 HP Fire extinguishers should be placed in an easily accessible area and tagged “Marine Type USCG Approved,” followed by the type and size symbols appropriate for your boat. Don’t Forget the Flares When your boat engine fails out in the middle of a lake, or on a remote part of a river, having visual distress signals (VDS) may help get you noticed so help arrives faster. You will want to have both pyrotechnic VDS and non-pyrotechnic VDS. Non-pyrotechnic VDS supplies include an electric...Learn More
Don’t let Fun in the Sun Turn to Ouch on the Couch School’s out and summer has finally arrived in Iowa. With that comes heat, humidity and fun in the sun, so be prepared to follow heat safety guidelines and keep your family healthy in the hottest weather. Having the right necessities and products with you at all times can save you a lot of pain, and potentially a trip to the doctor. Stay Hydrated Water Bottles When it’s 95 degrees outside and you’re family is heading to the ball diamonds, your kids are going to be working hard just standing in the sweltering heat, much less running after the ball. Whether you are heading outdoors for work or play, take a cooler of water bottles. No other drink rehydrates quite as quickly, or as well as water. If you do find yourself dehydrated, you may experience increased thirst, dry mouth or swollen tongue, weakness, dizziness, sluggishness, fainting, decreased urine output and inability to sweat. If you can drink water slowly and avoid alcohol or caffeine. Eat something to replace electrolytes. If you can’t eat, drink a sports drink. If your health does not improve, have somebody take you to the doctor or emergency room. Avoid the Burn with Sunscreen and Shade While a little sunshine is great for your state of mind, a sunburn can take the fun right out of a family picnic, or trip to the water park. If you need to be out in the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., find a shady spot to sit part of the time. Don’t forget the...Learn More

According to the National Safety Council, unintentional injuries have recently risen to become the 4th leading cause of death in the United States. With all of the illnesses, such as cancer and heart disease, that is a startling statistic. But if you are prepared with first aid kits and have preventative measures in place in your workplace, home, farm or school, those numbers can be decreased. How Can You Make Your Environments Safer This Month? 1. Make sure all first aid kits are properly stocked in case of emergency. 2. Get fire extinguishers tested, filled or replaced. 3.
