Two Huge Shout Out of Thanks!
- For all the families that braved the chilly rainy Saturday to make scarecrows that now decorate our Law Park – the people love them – the dogs . . . I am not quite so sure.
- Thank you to all who donated Halloween costumes in September and October. You all had such incredible generosity! The Halloween costume swap event was a smashing success. This zero-waste event was organized by the Briarcliff Sustainability Advisory Committee and the Briarcliff Recreation Department. Families were able to choose from over 120 costumes all from donations and over 80 Halloween masks. All were excited to save money and time while promoting sustainability in the community!

Scalding Safety Tips.
The Fire Chief would like remind you of how to prevent getting scalded. A scald injury can happen at any age. Children, older adults and people with disabilities are especially at risk. Hot liquids from bath water, hot coffee and even microwaved soup can cause devastating injuries. Scald burns are the second leading cause of all burn injuries.
- Teach children that hot things can burn. Install anti-scald devices on tub faucets and shower heads.
- Always supervise a child in or near a bathtub.
- Test the water at the faucet. It should be less than 100° Fahrenheit (38° Celsius).
- Before placing a child in the bath or getting in the bath yourself, test the water.
- Test the water by moving your hand, wrist and forearm through the water. The water should feel warm, not hot, to the touch.
- Place hot liquids and food in the center of a table or toward the back of a counter.
- Have a “kid-free zone” of at least 3 feet around the stove and areas where hot food or drink is prepared or carried.
- Open microwaved food slowly, away from the face.
- Never hold a child while you are cooking, drinking a hot liquid, or carrying hot foods or liquids.
- Never heat a baby bottle in a microwave oven. Heat baby bottles in warm water from the faucet.
- Allow microwaved food to cool before eating.
- Choose prepackaged soups whose containers have a wide base or, to avoid the possibility of a spill, pour the soup into a traditional bowl after heating.
Treat a burn right away. Cool the burn with cool water for 3–5 minutes. Cover with a clean, dry cloth. Get medical help if needed.
