Lincoln County Health: Hot Weather Tips and Cooling Center Locations
Published on 07/18/2019 under News With hot and humid conditions continuing in the Northwoods, officials are reminding people to take precautions. The Lincoln County Health Department notes that the county actually has a higher rate of emergency room visits due to heat than the state as a whole. Public Health Intern Barni Shiferaw says Lincoln County's rate is 18.1 visits per 100,000 people vs. 12.6 per 100,000 for the state of Wisconsin. Shiferaw says, "Although this rate has decreased over the last few years, more work is needed to educate and protect our residents." Lincoln County has nearly a dozen locations that serve the public as designated cooling centers in both Tomahawk and Merrill.That includes: Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital, Tomahawk City Hall, Tomahawk Public Library, Tomahawk Senior Center, and Strikers Tomahawk Bowl. In Southern Lincoln County visit Les and Jim's Lincoln Lanes, Riverside Athletic Club, Smith Multi-Purpose Center (MARC), T.B. Scott Library, Merrill Enrichment Center, and Gleason Bowling Alley. The Health Department also offered a quick refresher on some common hot weather tips. Avoid being outdoors during the hottest parts of the day; wear light, loose clothing and take frequent air conditioned breaks. Never leave a person in a parked car for even a short time. Stay hydrated and stay informed by paying attention to weather alerts.

Remember Pets During Hot Weather
Published on 07/18/2019 under News In addition to human precautions, officials are also reminding people to remember their pets and livestock. Like humans, the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection notes that heat stroke is a threat for animals. And like humans, certain animal populations are more susceptible including new born and aging animals, those carrying extra weight, and animals with previous health problems. If you see symptoms of heat stroke, bring the animals out of the heat and get them wet, and call your veterinarian. As a preventative measure, make sure outdoor kennels or enclosures are well-ventilated and have shade. Make sure the animals have plenty of fresh water in a container that won't tip. And when clipping your pet's fur don't go too short... animals can be sunburned as well. The state's Division of Animal Health has a website dedicated to animals and extreme weather.

Crimestoppers Benches Provide Visibility, Funds
Published on 07/18/2019 under News The Tomahawk STAR Foundation and Lincoln County Crimestoppers recently partnered to improve Crimestoppers visibility in the Tomahawk area.

They raise money for the organization and also serve as a reminder of the ways to contact Crimestoppers, whether phone, Facebook , or smart phone app. Earlier this year, the STAR Foundation provided a grant to purchase two new benches to be placed in Tomahawk. They've also refurbished the two existing benches located near Tomahawk City Hall. Those interested in sponsoring a bench can contact Crimestoppers.
