Health Is Vital
Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**E-Training: Fire Safety
This hits home in my life right now as I heal from a burn on my back after lighting myself on fire. Fire is something you have to be carful with, and there are many sources of burns in our homes and at work. Fire requires three things, heat, oxygen and fuel. You fight fire by removing one of these things. When you discover a fire in the hospital RACE--Rescue or remove those at risk, Initiate alert system, Contain the fire (such as closing door) and Extinguish. As for using the extinguisher pull the pin, aim at the base, squeeze the handle and sweep from side to side.
