Message From the President

The Arizona Chapter of the National Safety Council (ACNSC) is proud to announce that it is partnering with the National Safety Council this year in observing National Safety Month, which takes place each June.

National Safety Month is more pertinent than ever as unintentional injuries have become the third leading cause of death in the U.S. for the first time in recorded history. To reverse this trend, we encourage everyone to celebrate National Safety Month and take steps to improve safety in our lives and the lives of those we care about. 
Free resources – including a poster, tip sheets and other items – will be offered at and at during each week of National Safety Month. Week one will focus on hazard recognition, week two on fall prevention, week three on fatigue and week four on impairment.

In addition, ACNSC will further recognize National Safety Month by having an Open House on June 28 th from 9 am-2 pm at our headquarters office at 1606 W. Indian School Rd. Plan on joining us. We will have plenty of handouts and food for everyone. I look forward to seeing you there!

Safety Sadie Says...

Well, I don't know what happened but it was so nice and beautiful outside and then all of a sudden it hurt my tiny toes to play in my backyard. It was hot!
This summer here are some tips from me to all my furry friends out there...

  1. Please make sure we have plenty of clean water and shade. We get thirsty more often than our human pets when we get hot. We can also get heat stroke.
  2. Please do not leave us in the car. As much as we love to go with you and have our sad, lonely eyes down perfectly, either take us to places that are dog friendly or leave us at home. It is too dangerous for us to be left in the car.
  3. We need pet sunscreen if we have short or light hair coats. Just like humans we can burn and develop skin cancer too. Sunburns hurt! Please be sure to put pet sunscreen on our bellies, our ears, nose, and anywhere that looks like it could be exposed.
  4. Don't shave us. As funny or cute as we look, our fur is designed to keep us cool in the summer and warm in the winter. You can trim us but be sure to leave a full inch or more of hair to protect our skin from sunburns.
  5. Walk and exercise us only in the early morning and late evening. Please let us take breaks in the shade and bring some water along for us.
  6. Our pads are the first thing to get hot when out in the sun and on hot surfaces. Hot surfaces like sidewalks and asphalt can burn paws and the heat also increases our body temperatures. Please keep us out of the bed of trucks. They get so hot and it can hurt to be stuck in the back.
