Diablo Fire Safe Council’s Defensible Space Project Cost Share Fund
The Diablo Fire Safe Council is a non-profit organization that provides cost-share funding for vegetation removal projects in the High Fire Severity Zone (HFSZ) areas in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Residents in these HFSZ areas can band together with a minimum of five neighbors to apply for the funding.

Here’s how the program works: Gather a minimum of five neighbors who are willing to participate, fill out the application and submit it to the Diablo Fire Safe Council for review and approval. Once approved, you and your neighbors do the ‘sweat equity work’ by cutting, trimming and pruning the vegetation and DFSC will provide funds for you to hire a contractor with a chipper to turn the cut vegetation into mulch, which can then be applied to help prevent weed growth. For more information, or to apply, contact Cheryl Miller, Executive Director of the Diablo Fire Safe Council, at (510) 536-0143, or via their website diablofiresafe.org/veg_removal.html, or Kathy Woofter, Confire Fire Prevention Technician, at (925) 941-3300, ext. 1549.

Danville's San Damiano Retreat Recognized at Red Cross "Sound the Alarm" Kickoff Luncheon
Congratulations to San Damiano Retreat of Danville for receiving a “Community Service Award” from the American Red Cross of the Bay Area at the April 23rd Sound the Alarm Kickoff Luncheon.

High in the hills above Danville, the San Damiano Retreat Center is usually closed during the Christmas week, but the friars and staff, made up of mostly volunteers, decided to open the 78-bedroom center to Camp Fire victims.

For a few days, 40 families who lost their homes in the Camp Fire enjoyed their own bedrooms and facilities on the serene grounds of the retreat. They also received food, clothing, toiletries and Christmas gifts - all donated by local groups. A nearby salon even offered complimentary haircuts, and a therapist offered free massages. 

The Red Cross also honored the nine fire districts in Contra Costa County for their acts of courage and compassion at the luncheon. Supervisor Andersen served as honorary chair of the event, which was held at Round Hill Country Club. Dan Ashley of ABC7 News was an entertaining Master of Ceremonies, and the San Ramon Valley Firefighters Honor Guard presented and retired the colors at the event.

Sound the Alarm home fire safety, and smoke alarm installation events are part of the Home Fire Campaign, which the Red Cross launched in 2014 to reduce fire deaths and injuries. So far, nationwide, it has reached more than 1.7 million people and saved more than 500 lives. This spring, the American Red Cross is rallying thousands of volunteers and partners to install 100,000 free smoke alarms nationwide and help families create home fire escape plans in three weeks.

Volunteers are still needed for the upcoming Sound the Alarm home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events below. People can register now at here to help install free smoke alarms and raise funds for lifesaving services.

Contra Costa Supervisors Raise the Flag Against Child Abuse
To show support for our County’s children, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors raised the Children’s Memorial Flag in the Board chambers for Child Abuse Prevention Month in April.

The Children’s Memorial Flag from the state Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP) was displayed at the Board chambers as a symbol of remembrance of children whose lives ended abruptly due to senseless violence. The goal was for more people to understand the prevalence of child abuse and what they can do about it. The national campaign may be more than 25 years old, but each April prompts us to recommit to ensuring every child grows up in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment.

HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  • Start by sharing with people you know that child abuse is preventable.
  • Teach kids it is okay to tell someone.
  • Listen, learn, believe and speak out.
  • Educate your friends, family and community about how they can help.
  • Report suspected child abuse or neglect by calling the Child Abuse Hotline at 1 (877) 881-1116.

Learn more about preventing child abuse at www.capc-coco.org.
Contra Costa’s Health Inspection Signs Coming to Mobile Food Vendors 
Food trucks and other mobile food businesses operating in Contra Costa will now post the same color-coded signs as the County’s stationary restaurants to inform the public of any recent, major health code violations. 

Contra Costa Environmental Health (CCEH) rolled out its placarding program today for some mobile food facilities, including those that cook or prepare food for sale and those selling pre-packaged food that can be hazardous if improperly stored. 

In coming weeks, when one of these businesses receives its regular health inspection, the inspector will also post a green, yellow, red or white placard on the vehicle. 

Green means the inspector found no or minimal health violations at the most recent inspection. White is for permit holders waiting for their renewal or reopening after a closure. 

A yellow placard means the inspector found major health violations that the business was able to fix during the last inspection, but CCEH will return soon to ensure no more problems. 

Red is reserved for businesses that are closed because of major health violations, such as vermin infestations, no potable water or operating without approved electrical power. 

CCEH began its placarding program in 2016 with stationary food permit holders such as restaurants and supermarkets. Learn more at cchealth.org/placard

The new businesses to receive placards include catering trucks and carts selling prepared food such as hot dogs, tamales or coffee. A few mobile food vendors will not – those that sell only prepackaged ice cream, whole, uncut produce or prepackaged food that is not likely to spoil. 

CCEH, a division of Contra Costa Health Services, regulates approximately 200 mobile food facilities. Many operate throughout the County and greater Bay Area. The program’s goal is to inform consumers and pressure food retailers to follow safe food handling practices. CCEH provides training for businesses that struggle to earn green placards. 

A searchable database of health inspection results for Contra Costa and several neighboring counties is available at cchealth.org/eh or through the county’s free "Food Inspector" App for iOS and Android. 
Making Travel Plans? Make Sure You’re Immunized Against Measles
Public Health Departments Urge Vaccination Before International Travel
People planning international travel should ensure they have already received the recommended two doses of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. 

Nationwide, confirmed measles cases in 2019 total 704, the highest since 1994. Nearly all these cases have been linked back to international travel by unvaccinated people and subsequent spread in unvaccinated populations in the U.S. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends two doses of MMR vaccine for everyone: the first dose at 12-15 months of age and the second dose at 4-6 years of age. Adults traveling internationally should get vaccinated for measles if they did not receive the two doses as children. Vaccination is the best protection against measles. 

Talk to your doctor about travel immunizations at least four to six weeks before traveling. For those travelling internationally with a baby older than 6 months but younger than 12 months, the CDC recommends that the baby receive an early dose of MMR vaccine. Infants and young children who contract measles are at risk of serious complications. More information about recommended vaccines for travelers is located on the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/mmr/public/index.html.  

“Measles is a serious disease,” said Dr. Chris Farnitano, Contra Costa County’s health officer. “It’s critical to get vaccinated, both to protect ourselves and the people in our community who can’t receive the vaccine for medical reasons.” 

Measles is still common in many parts of the world in Europe, Asia, the Pacific, South America, and Africa, including the Philippines, Israel, India, and the Ukraine. If you are planning a trip, protect yourself against diseases that are more common in the country you are visiting. 

Measles immunizations are available at your healthcare provider, local pharmacy, or health clinic. Locate a place that offers the measles vaccine at vaccinefinder.org

While no measles cases have been identified in Contra Costa County this year, Contra Costa Health Services is taking steps to increase public awareness about MMR vaccination and the spread of the disease and has increased the hours of its Travel Immunization Clinic on Fridays in Martinez. 

MMR vaccine is available at the clinic upon request, including for babies as young as 6 months who are preparing to travel internationally. Visit cchealth.org/immunization/travel.php for more information and the immunization fee schedule. Call 925-313-6488 to make an appointment. 

Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, up to 90 percent of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected. A person with measles can spread the disease to others even before they have any symptoms. A person develops measles from 7 to 21 days after being exposed to someone who is contagious with measles. Common symptoms of measles include fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, and a rash. 

If you are unsure of your immunization status or may have had contact with someone with measles, consult with your doctor. It is very important to call ahead to any medical facility before going there and tell them that you may have been exposed to measles, so that the facility can take measures to protect other patients and visitors. 

For more information about measles, visit cchealth.org/measles. Information for clinicians and providers is available at cchealth.org/measles/providers.php
