SUMMER SAFETY TIPS

Hot weather is on the way, and that means it’s time to hit the backyard for safe fun. To help keep safe this summer, please remember:

•  Alert adult supervision of children is essential in pools, hot tubs and spas at all times. There is no substitute for adult supervision to ensure child safety in the water.

•  Assign an adult to watch the pool at all times when children are present, make sure there are no distractions such as talking with friends or cooking on a grill.

•  The assigned adult must be watching the children at all times.

•  Don’t assume guests or their children can swim. Ask and observe.

•  Don’t leave toys in or around the pool area.

•  Toddlers and infants should have physical contact with an adult at all times while in the pool area.

•  Infants and small children should have constant supervision.

•  Make sure all doors and gates leading to the pool or spa area are securely closed when the pool is not in use.

•  Do not allow anyone impaired by alcohol or drugs to use the pool.  

For safe grilling:

• Place the barbeque grill away from siding, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. It is also unsafe to use grills in a garage, porch or enclosed area that could trap carbon monoxide. Never grill on top of anything that can catch on fire.

• When grilling, have a fire extinguisher, a garden hose or at least 4 gallons of water close by in case of a fire.

• Keep children away from fires and grills. Establish a safety zone around the grill and instruct the children to remain outside of the zone. A chalk line works great for this purpose. Never leave the grill unattended.

ECO-FRIENDLY CAR WASHING TIPS  

Water quality continues to be one of the most important environmental concerns.  Every individual can play his or her part to help keep our water clean.  One of the ways to ensure that our water remains free from toxins is to wash your car the proper way.  Many individuals overlook the fact that it takes approximately 500 gallons of water to hand wash a car and that all of that water is washed down our streets into local waterways.   The easiest way to ensure environmental protection is to take your car to a commercial car wash where the waste water is discharged to a wastewater treatment facility. However, if you choose to wash your car at home, keep in mind the following suggestions to prevent additional toxic discharge into our creeks and rivers:

• Wash on an area that absorbs water such as gravel or grass. This allows the water to be filtered before it enters groundwater, storm drains, or creeks. Avoid washing cars on concrete or asphalt pavement unless it drains into a vegetated area.

• Minimize water usage. Use a spray gun with flow restriction to reduce water volume and run-off.

• Always empty wash buckets into sinks or toilets.

Another option is to utilize one of the City of Calabasas permitted Mobile Car Wash operators. The City ensures that all operators use appropriate preventative measures whenever they are engaged in car washing activities. For a complete list of permitted mobile car washing companies, please visit www.cityofcalabasas.com/environmental/mobile-car-wash.html

SUMMER COYOTE AWARENESS

The time of year is approaching when severe heat causes coyotes to venture out into urban areas to look for food and water, and possible encounters with coyotes tend to increase.   There are several tips and guidelines to follow that can help reduce conflict: 

• Teach children to never approach or feed ANY strange animal. 

• Never ignore, turn your back or run from a coyote(s).

• Carry a walking stick or a noisemaker at night or during early morning hours if walking with pets (Coyotes are more likely to approach someone with a pet).

• Haze or harass a coyote(s) until it chooses to leave the situation (it's OK if it doesn't run).

• Let neighbors and friends know coyotes have been seen in the area.

In addition, it is essential to change or alter your daily routines. Coyotes are capable of learning or adapting to neighborhood habits. Furthermore, pets are a major source of attraction to coyotes; therefore, cats should be kept safely indoors, especially when dark out. Dogs should always be kept on a leash while being walked,  and any pet food should be removed from outdoors where coyotes have access. 

To learn more about how to co-exist with coyotes, please visit www.cityofcalabasas.com/coyotes.html.  

For additional information, please read the City of Calabasas Coyote Management Plan at: www.cityofcalabasas.com/environmental/pdf/Coyote-Management-Plan.pdf
