  • Red Cross Heat Wave Safety Checklist

    With the hot, hot weather we've been having recently, I've been wondering about first aid for heat-related health problems. I've had first aid training in the past, but I wanted to make sure I'd know what to do now if someone near me seemed to be having trouble with the heat. I went to...

  • EVPL gives back to the community

  • Keeping a weather eye

    If, like me, you're keeping an eye on the coastal hurricane activity these days, you'll be interested in a Web site called Stormpulse . You'll find a huge amount of hurricane information there, from as far back as 1851. Great maps, satellite images, Yahoo! News articles, and present weather...
