Ready to Party? Safety First, Please!


By Bill Fortune

Are you ready to ring in the new year? For some of us it means having some friends over to watch the ball drop and for others it means going out to join the crowds. In either case the Red Cross recommends that you party responsibly and remember, "Friends don't let friends drive drunk!"  Besides, nobody wants to start a new year with a DUI, car accident or a trip to the emergency room.

Our partners at AAA offer this link AAA Sober Ride so you can get a free ride home almost anywhere in the country.

Here are some tips that just might help you out.

1. Have a designated driver or just don't drink and drive. Ask someone for a ride, or use Uber. See the AAA link above
2. Try to avoid being on the road between the hours of 8pm - 2am. Auto accidents due to alcohol consumption are the highest during that time.
3. Monitor your alcohol intake. If you are drinking, make sure to stay hydrated with water and that you have enough to eat.
4. Take the keys if you have a friend who is too drunk to get behind the wheel. Help your friend with a ride home. 
5. Watch out for intoxicated pedestrians or bicyclists.
6. Be careful with what you're sharing on social media. You might be embarrassed when you look at it later and you could put yourself at risk.  If "they" know where you are you are vulnerable! 
7. Ask guests to turn their keys in and put them in a secure place if you're hosting a party.
8. Make sure your guests have a designated driver or a way to take them home from your party.
9. Offer two types of drinks and drinking cups at your party - one for adult beverages and the other for non-alcoholic beverages. This will keep the alcohol away from children.
10. Do not serve minors alcohol.
11. You've heard of the saying, "It's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye." Be aware of anyone who brings dangerous fireworks at your home or at a party that you are attending. A homeowner can be held criminally and civilly liable for any damage done by safe or unsafe fireworks.
12. You'll hear about it -- someone shooting guns into the air. Firing weapons in the air is a violation of the law.
13. Keep your pets inside or away from fireworks and other loud noises.
14. Check your fence, gate latches and pet area before New Year's Eve to ensure your pets can't get out.
15. Make sure pets have a collar with a tag with your information.
16. Be careful with matches, open flames and fireworks. Home fires increase when people are careless. 
17. Make sure your cell phone is fully charged so you can call for help if needed.
18. Dressing stylishly may be glamorous but dressing for the weather, especially the wind chill, is safer. Here is a link to safety information from the National Weather Service
19. Down load the free Red Cross First Aid app. It can help you help others in an emergency. Visit redcross.org/apps to download or get it from your favorite app provider.

Here's hoping that you have a safe, happy and prosperous new year!

Veteran Thankful for Red Cross Support

By Mary Urban

Veteran Don Rinehart admits that he never thought he would find himself in a situation where he had no income or transportation, and difficulties staying employed. Don is a 61-year old vet battling PTSD and depression.  He shared his experience of daily life with Red Cross, explaining the isolation and living conditions that are experienced by many veterans, fearing others don’t understand the
Thank you card from Don Rhinehart
issues and everyday challenges due to the trauma he and other veterans have endured.  Don states “self-isolation” is very common, but isolation can be a road to suicide.  Don emphasized that attempts to break the isolation or being in the company of others may present on-going struggle for himself and other veterans, and the pressure to “act normal” is difficult to endure.

Don is very passionate about reading and writing, and uses these tools as well as sketching as a form of therapy to express and explore the struggles and isolation he experiences. But, Don also shares he loves to write “uplifting stories that give hope.” He has drafted four books but has had “literal computer meltdowns”   using outdated or older, refurbished computers, and eventually found himself without one altogether. The Red Cross in collaboration with his VA case manager provided Don with a new laptop.  He expressed  in his amazing and beautiful letter to Red Cross his sincerest thanks and gratitude for the gift of a new computer, and what it meant to him. Don says, “Writing gives me a reason to hope and to live. I write for me, not to be published or to make money, but to fight for my life.”
Portion of the thank you card text sent by Don Rhinehart

Since WWI, the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces program (SAF) was instituted to aid America’s military and veterans. The American Red Cross supports the recovery and rehabilitation of service members and veterans. In collaboration with medical authorities / case managers, the Red Cross may provide medically and/or educationally beneficial material support to wounded, ill or injured service members and veterans who are receiving in-patient or out-patient care in a military or Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facility within Colorado or Wyoming. Contact your VA case manager for further information.

The Red Cross is extremely grateful to Don for his military service and for sharing his story. We wish him the best in his writing and overcoming his struggles.

Red Cross workers provide emotional support for members of the military and their families by participating in a variety of events and programs organized both by the Red Cross and by partner agencies. Learn more about our 100+ years of service to our service members, their families and veterans at SAF program.

Starting a new family is disrupted by home fire...Red Cross helps

The Pandora home after the fire. Photo \

By Lindsay Hale Murdock

Lists, numerous options, too many choices… Peter and Melissa Pandora wandered through the aisles putting their baby registry together for their first child. Melissa is 3 months pregnant and they both were having all of the new parent thoughts that can be all consuming. That is, until a call came in from a neighbor. They dismissed it to call later, but then another call from another neighbor came in. Peter thought he better answer, as it seemed a bit out of the ordinary. Sure enough, they needed to drop everything and get home as quickly as they could. Their home was being consumed by an apartment fire.

First thoughts were of their beloved pets, whom they thought they left safe at home. Were neighbors safe? Peter flew through traffic to get to the scene, following an ambulance into the complex, fearing the worst. He pushed through the gathering crowd, but was held just out of reach, feeling completely helpless as he watched firefighters providing medical treatment to his pets, who had been rescued by the apartment manager, a neighbor, and the Colorado Springs Fire Department. Blue, his service dog, was limp on the ground. His two cats, Milo and Benson were unconscious.
Fear, anxiety and a surreal cloud of disbelief engulfed the Pandora family in those crucial moments. “For my animals, it means a lot. They risked their own lives for us and I’m super grateful,” Peter said of the neighbors and firefighters who rescued his pets.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department was able to extinguish the fire, stabilize their dog and cats, and even rescue their pet turtle. Although the animals needed additional medical care, they all survived. A video of the rescue is available from 9News on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ilike9news/videos/10154392497251077/.

Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers arrived and assisted the Pandora family, along with another family effected by the apartment fire that destroyed two units of the Antero Apartments in Colorado Springs. Red Cross provided immediate assistance for the families, including personal hygiene items, funds for temporary lodging and to replace lost clothing. They also provided information and referrals for community resources along with information about how to salvage some items from smoke damage. “They were super supportive,” Peter said about the Red Cross volunteers. “I know if I called and needed anything at all they would help. It was really nice to have their support,” Peter said of the Red Cross DAT volunteers.

Peter and Melissa were devastated when they were able to return to their apartment to assess the damage. Memorabilia lost, treasured tapestries in tatters, most of their possessions destroyed. Luckily they were able to salvage some memories and documents. Their animals remained in intensive care for three days, and are on their way to recovery, thanks to quick thinking community members.

Through the ordeal, Peter and Melissa have been assisted by the Red Cross along with other local agencies and businesses, who all reached out to help them. “It’s so different here than New Hampshire,” he said. “I was overwhelmed with the outpouring of help and community from everyone around…It’s just very emotional.” The Pandora’s have since moved into a new unit in the same apartment complex and the couple is starting to breathe easier again.

The Red Cross responds to home fires every day averaging two fires per day in Colorado. Each response is different and each response is critical to those people who have suffered a loss. If you would like more information about home fire safety visit our web site at www.redcross.org/firesafety.

Giving with meaning...now has even more meaning

Florence and Don Peck at their temporary home. "Before
we knew what we needed Red Cross was there"

By Mary Urban
Photos by Nigel F. Holderby/American Red Cross

On 11/13/2016 Don Peck and his wife Florence Myles-Peck escaped from their burning home in the early morning hours. Because they had working smoke alarms they were able to get out safely, but they indicated it was “only about 15 minutes before the roof collapsed.  When we spoke with them, they were very thankful the Red Cross had been there. Florence said, “You were the first ones there. Before we knew what we needed, Red Cross was there and knew what to do.”

From the moment you realize your house is on fire and your life is in danger, survival of household members is paramount.  “We just left everything and got out,” said Don. The Pecks were standing in the yard with literally the clothes on their backs. The Red Cross provided the elderly couple with a Client Assistance Card, or CAC.  This card provides money for food, hotels and clothing. “The card was great because the banks were closed and we don’t use those ATMS’” said Florence.

The Peck's home, now unliveable, waits for repairs. Red Cross
helped them move foreward after the home fire. 
Don, a military veteran, said he and Florence have always given a small gift to the Red Cross. “It seems like such a little amount now that I see how much it means to people who find themselves in a spot like this. We’re not destitute,” he went on to say, “and after this experience I plan to increase our gift in the future.” He went on to express the “attitude of gratitude” this situation has given him. He looked over at his lovely wife and shared with me a few things that were most important to him. “I’m grateful that we are safe…and thankful to the Red Cross for taking the worry out of that night.” The Peck’s home is expected to be unlivable for 3-4 months.

In November, 2016, Red Cross responded to help nearly 150 people who were affected by a home fire disaster across the Colorado & Wyoming Region. That’s an average of twice a day where we provided help and hope right here in our community. Your Gift on Colorado Gives Day provides:

·         A blanket to wrap around a disaster victim ($5)
·         A hot meal to someone affected by disaster ($10)
·         A blanket, meal, snack & comfort kit to a disaster survivor ($20)
·         A full day of food and shelter for a disaster evacuee ($50)
·         A full day of food and shelter for a family of 4 ($200)

Disaster knows no socioeconomic status nor does it discriminate the time of day or night it can strike. These folks saw firsthand where their donations were used and while it’s not something we ever hope anyone goes through, they wanted to share the importance of that gift with others, and what it meant to them. Click here to give a gift today: Colorado Gives Day 2016

With colder weather and in the midst of holidays, space heaters, fire places, candles and unattended stoves can all be potential fire risks.

Some Quick Tips to help prevent/prepare for house fires:
A fire alarm installed on every level of your home
Two ways to escape out of your home
Make sure space heaters are at 3 least feet away from blankets, curtains rugs or anything flammable
Practice escaping at least twice a year.
If clothing catches fire, STOP, DROP AND ROLL
Call 911 when all household members are safe
