Text to 911 Now Available

As of March 1, 2016, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon customers within the QuadCom 911 service area may be able to use their mobile device to send a text message to 911 for emergency help. (QuadCom serves Barrington Hills, Carpentersville, East Dundee, Sleepy Hollow, South Barrington and West Dundee.)

Texting during an emergency could be helpful if you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability, or if a voice call to 911 might otherwise be dangerous or impossible. But if you are able to make a voice call to 911, and if it is safe to do so, you should always make a voice call to 911 to request emergency response from Police, Fire or Emergency Medical Services.

With either a text or voice call, the first information you should provide is your location, in as clear and premise terms as possible. Do not use abbreviations or slang when communicating with 911.

The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a deadly, odorless, colorless, poisonous gas created when household appliances that burn fossil fuels burn incompletely (furnace, stove, dryer, fireplace, etc) and by equipment with internal combustion engines (vehicles, mowers, generators, etc).

CO is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the US. The health effects of CO depend on the concentration and duration of exposure, as well as individual health conditions. Heart patients may experience chest pain at lower levels of exposure. As CO levels increase beyond a tolerable level, symptoms such as headache, fatigue and nausea may become more noticeable. At sustained high concentrations of CO, disorientation, unconsciousness and death are possible.

Learn how to protect yourself, your family and pets from CO Poisoning. Click below for more information.

Home is where most of us feel the safest – but it’s also where we are most likely to experience a fatal fire. In fact, 85% of fire fatalities occur in the home. This is due in large part to homes being unprotected or under-protected in terms of smoke alarms being in working order and sufficient in number and placement.

Click below to learn best practices for the use of smoke alarms in your home to protect yourself and your family, reduce your risk and help you escape quickly in the event of a fire.
