Looks like another nice weekend is on the way for some recreational water based fun for our community. As such, your LOWVFD want to take an opportunity to remind our residents, and their visitors, of some ways to help mitigate potential swimming pool emergencies.

For children younger than 5 years old, 85% of all drownings occur in backyard pools according to data from the Consumer Protection Safety Commission's 2018 Drowning Report. Of the roughly 351 drowning deaths that occur each year, about 76% of them are children under 5 years old, and of the 6,400 emergency room visits for nonfatal drownings each year, about 73% are for children younger than 5 years old.

Please review some safety tips and remember that the American Red Cross has a compilation of tips called "Things to Know About Water Safety" at: www.redcross.org

Although we haven't officially started Summer 2019 yet that would be Friday, June 21st this year.

Your LOWVFD thought this would be a good time to encouraging our community members to wear your helmets when riding bikes, skateboards and scooters this summer.

We all know that bikes, skateboards and scooters are a great way for kids to learn independence, have fun and get exercise. However, not wearing a helmet or not following the rules of road may lead to serious injuries. That's why your LOWVFD stresses wearing a helmet, and following the rules of the road, at all times when on your bike, skateboard or scooter.

On June 6th, the LOWVFD stops to honor and remember one of our own and the D-Day invasion. Joseph Argenzio was just 17 years old when he fought at D-Day.
In 1994, he and his wife, Joan, moved to LOW whereupon he joined the LOW Fire and Rescue Company. Joseph was named an honorary Chief and served as Vice President and President of our Board. In addition, he organized our annual Fourth of July parade and was an active member of many civic and fraternal associations, such as the LOW Veterans and Knights of Columbus.
Joseph died on April 7, 2010 but his service to our nation and community lives on. Please take a moment to remember former Honorary Chief Argenzio and the many other veterans who stormed those Normandy beaches on Tuesday, June 6, 1944 as part of the Allied operations.
