Several RPD officers/staff helped the @pathwayredlands with their Souled Out For Kids event this week @walmart in Redlands. ⚫️⚫️⚫️🔵🔵🔵⚫️⚫️⚫️ For over 20 years, Pathway has offered a shopping spree to kids in need in Redlands. They have partnered with local schools to identify children who would benefit from the event. The kids join up with shopping buddies and they work with the children (or a group) to help them carry items and stay on budget. We are grateful Pathway invited us to this community event. #communitypolicing#redlandspolice#cityofredlands#givingback#puttingsmilesonfaces
Check out our website and Facebook page for Holiday Safety tips by Bonsey and Erin.
Keep these tips in mind when decorating your home or hosting a party.
Keep lighted candles away from anything flammable. Consider using battery operated or melted wax type products instead. Never leave them unattended and make sure to blow out or turn off before leaving your home.
2. Christmas trees
Artificial trees : Plug directly into the wall, do not use extension cords.
Live trees : Keep live trees well watered, don't let your tree get dried out. Dry branches can catch fire from the heat of lights.
3. Decorating: don't reach too far and brake your bones.
Use a step stool or ladder with proper footing.
Cords and decorations: Replace worn or damaged cords and decorations. Always turn off before leaving or going to bed. Consider using timers.
Ornaments : If you have small children or curious pets consider using plastic instead of glass ornaments on lower branches.
Also, Avoid items with small parts as these can be choking hazards.
Consider using a play-yard or baby gate fence around your tree until Christmas Eve or day.
4. Cooking: If you are cooking and hosting lots of family and friends make sure you do so safely.
Always keep a fire extinguisher available.
Keep young children out of the kitchen while cooking so curious eyes and hands don't get burnt.
Handle raw meat safely by washing your hands and anything that comes into contact with it.
Cook meat to proper cooking temperature.
If serving alcohol make sure everyone gets home safe with a designated driver.
Don't stress out. Start shopping and prepping early. That way everyone can enjoy the party.
The holidays aren't about food, gifts and decorations, they are about who you spend them with.
Enjoy your holiday. #MissionPediatrics#Dr .Watson #newborns#Pediatrics#IE#Riverside#CityofPerris#CityofRiverside#CityofRedlands#SanBernardino#RCH#4patients#healthcare#AAP#Just4kids#AAPA#PediatricNursePractitioner#Pediatrician#PhysicianAssistant#decidedlydifferent#fun4everyone#Safetyseconds#Safetyfirst#wellchildexam#IEHP#kids#instachildren#instakids#holidaysafety
