*MPSC encourages propane customers to shop now for best prices***

LANSING, Mich. It may be the middle of summer, but now is a good time to think about locking in propane fuel prices for this winter.

The Michigan Public Service Commission urges Michiganders to shop around to find the best deals from local suppliers. Locking in lower prices now could mean significant savings over market prices when the weather turns cold and demand heats up. Research your options, ask questions, and get everything in writing.

Here are five things to think about when shopping for propane:

* Budget plans, prepay plans, and fixedprice plans can offer consumers savings when compared to buying at market price.
* Ask about fees and other charges such as those for installation or minimum
annual usage requirements.
* Be aware that the price per gallon may increase after the prepaid allotment is used up.
* Decide whether its best to rent, lease, or own the propane supply tank. If
switching providers, that may affect the on-site tank thats being used.
* Understand the contract before signing. A written contract explains the rights and responsibilities of buyer and seller.

Find more tips and key questions to ask a supplier in the MPSCs propane consumer tip sheet [ https://www.michigan.gov/documents/mpsc/mpsc-selecting-propane_464669_7.pdf].

Michigan leads the nation in total residential propane consumption, with more than 8 percent of households or an estimated 320,000 — using propane as their primary heating source. Propane use is significantly higher in rural Michigan, with 18 percent of Upper Peninsula residents and nearly 24 percent of those living in the northern Lower Peninsula relying on propane as a primary heating source, according to the MPSCs Statewide Energy Assessment [https://www.michigan.gov/documents/mpsc/Sea_Initial_Report_with_Appendices_070119_659452_7.pdf].

While the MPSC does not regulate propane prices, it does monitor supplies and makes available statewide average residential prices [https://www.michigan.gov/energy/0,4580,7-364-85452_86924_86926_87100_87101_88659—,00.html] during the heating season, which starts Oct. 1. Additional information on propane is available here [https://www.michigan.gov/energy/0,4580,7-364-85452_86924_86926_87100_87101_87120-472314–,00.html].

Genesee County Health Plan – Swimming Safety

Swimming safety can protect children and families this summer

Genesee Health Plan and YMCA of Greater Flint offer tips for staying safe in swimming pools, lakes and other bodies of water

FLINT – July is historically the hottest month of the year in Michigan and many Genesee County families are staying cool at pools or visiting a variety of area lakes. The Genesee Health Plan (GHP) and YMCA of Greater Flint encourage children, adults and families to follow swimming safety measures to reduce risk of drownings and swimming-related emergencies.
“A swimming emergency can happen to anyone and it’s important for people of all ages and swimming abilities to be prepared for an emergency,” said Elizabeth Hudson, association aquatics director for YMCA of Greater Flint. “Seconds count when saving a life and any age swimmer can become a victim in the water. We encourage residents to always swim with a buddy, only swim in designated areas where a lifeguard is on duty, and pay attention to signage and announcements about water risks or levels.”
Recent media reports have shown the risk of using large inflatables as flotation devices in large bodies of open water. This week, a toddler on an inflatable duck was swept away due to the wind and heavy current in Lake Michigan. Earlier this summer, a child in North Carolina was swept away while on an inflatable unicorn in the Atlantic Ocean. Inflatables should be used in an enclosed area and U.S. Coast Guard-approved lifejackets should still be worn in open water.

In the case of an emergency, Hudson says to call 911 or a local emergency number immediately, and if possible, use a pole or object to extend to the person who is in trouble. Below are proactive measures to promote safe swimming and reduce risk of an emergency.
Swim only in designated areas, supervised by a lifeguard.
• Always swim with a buddy, regardless of age or swimming ability.
• Make sure young or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved lifejackets. All U.S. Coast Guard-approved items must be fitted and used according to their guidelines. Swimming noodles and other flotation devices do not replace lifejackets. Inflatables and noodles can create a false sense of security for non-swimmers.
• Ensure everyone knows rules for the swimming area and understands swimming conditions such as depth, water temperature, current, and underwater hazards including vegetation and animals when swimming in bodies of water.
• Know physical limitations, such as fitness level and medical conditions, and take frequent breaks to avoid exhaustion.
• Supervision is essential. Maintain constant supervision of children and avoid distractions when supervising swimmers.
• Teach children to ask permission before going near water, including pools, lakes, ponds, streams and rivers.
• If a child goes missing, check the water first.
• Home pools or water sources should have appropriate barriers in place. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, home pools should have a fence surrounding it that is at least four feet high.
• Do not swim while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
o Be mindful of any prescribed medications that you or a buddy may be taking as some side effects can alter your ability to swim and cause drowsiness, dizziness, or impairment.
• Stay away from drains and other openings that may have suction.
• Do not enter a pool headfirst unless there is a designated diving area.
Approximately one in five people who die from drowning are children age 14 and younger, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Swimming emergencies can include: when someone who doesn’t know how to swim enters water they can’t manage at their level, when someone who is exhausted can’t stay afloat, or when children aren’t protected against accidental entry into a pool and can’t swim.
Swim lessons can equip children and adults with the knowledge they need to swim safely. The YMCA offers swim lessons year-round at both the Downtown and Pierson Road locations for children six months old and older as well as adults. The YMCA also offers CPR/First Aid and Lifeguarding courses to help train community members on swimming safety. For more information, visit flintymca.com.
“We want everyone to have a safe, healthy and fun summer and we encourage Genesee County residents to take proactive safety measures when swimming,” said Jim Milanowski, GHP president and CEO. “While swimming is a low-impact exercise that can help improve health, it’s also important to be aware of your swimming ability and health conditions before entering a pool or body of water.”

DETOUR OVERLAP AND COMMERCIAL VEHICLES
There will be some overlap for commercial vehicles only regarding the detour of Carpenter Road Bridge and the Genesee Bridge emergency repairs.

Carpenter Bridge is closing on July 8. This bridge will open to traffic on November 4. The detour route is Bray-Mt. Morris-Genesee Roads.

Genesee Bridge emergency repairs are still under construction. We’re hoping to have everything completed on Genesee Road by the week of July 15th. All contractors and fabricators are moving quickly to minimize this detour overlap between the two bridges.

We don’t anticipate this overlap to be long.

Fireworks: Know the New State Law and Your Local Ordinance

State fire marshal urges safety- beware of the risks and know the dangers

Media Contact: LARA Communications 517-335-LARA (5272) Email: mediainfo@michigan.gov

June 28, 2019 – Michiganders who plan on setting off fireworks need to make sure they know which days are legal to do so in their local community. Michigan’s Fireworks Safety Act of 2011 (Public Act 256) was amended in December 2018, giving local government entities – villages, townships, and cities – the right to restrict the days and times for their residents to use consumer fireworks by enacting a local ordinance.

“Local government officials who assume that their municipality is simply following state law by not passing a fireworks ordinance may be inadvertently putting zero restrictions on fireworks usage in their community. This may not be what they intended, but it is what the state law puts forth,” said State Fire Marshal Kevin Sehlmeyer. “If no action is taken at the local government level, state law allows for fireworks to be used all year long. Simply put, if there is no local ordinance restricting fireworks, then there are no local fireworks restrictions in your municipality.”

Even if a local government chooses to restrict fireworks in their municipality by passing a local ordinance, state law requires that fireworks must be allowed on the following days, after 11:00 a.m.:

• December 31 until 1:00 a.m. on January 1
• The Saturday and Sunday before Memorial Day, until 11:45 p.m.
• June 29 to July 4, until 11:45 p.m.
• July 5, if it falls on a Friday or Saturday, until 11:45 p.m.
• The Saturday and Sunday before Labor Day, until 11:45 p.m.

Sehlmeyer emphasized the importance of knowing the rules since the amended state law also stipulates that violations of a local ordinance can result in a $1,000 civil fine.

“If you do plan to shoot your own fireworks, remember these are explosives and that if used incorrectly, can cause irreparable injury and harm,” said Sehlmeyer. “Take every safety precaution, especially with the more powerful consumer-grade devices such as firecrackers, bottle rockets and Roman candles, to avoid tragedy.”

In Michigan, consumer fireworks must meet Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards. Licensed facilities will only sell fireworks to people 18 years of age or older. Low impact fireworks (ground-based items such as sparklers, toy snakes, snaps, and poppers) are also legal for sale and use

State law requires that consumer-grade fireworks only be ignited from personal property. It is illegal to ignite fireworks on public property (including streets and sidewalks), school property, church property, or another person’s property without their express permission. State law makes it illegal to discharge fireworks when intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.

When fire-related incidents involve consumer, low impact, or illegal fireworks resulting in property damage, injury or death of another person, individuals are subject to a misdemeanor or felony punishable by imprisonment of not more than five years and fines of up to $10,000 or both.

The Bureau of Fire Services fire inspectors are issuing citations to sellers who are non­ compliant with the Fireworks Safety Act to ensure that fireworks retailers operate their businesses safely to protect the public. Consumers should always buy from state­ certified fireworks retailers – whether in a permanent building or a tent – and should consider these important safety tips to protect lives and property:
ALWAYS:

• Follow the manufacturer’s directions.
• Have an adult supervise fireworks activities, including sparklers.
• Light fireworks one at a time, then immediately back away to a safe distance.
• Keep people and pets out of range before lighting fireworks.
• Light fireworks outdoors on a driveway or other paved surface at least 25 feet away from houses and highly flammable materials such as dry grass or mulch.
• Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
• Douse spent fireworks in a bucket of water before discarding them.

NEVER:

• Buy fireworks packaged in brown paper or use unlabeled fireworks – they are for professional use only.

• Experiment with or make your own fireworks.
• Allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.
• Place any part of your body directly over a fireworks device when lighting the fuse.
• Try to re-light “duds” or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully. (Rather, wait 15 to 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.)
• Point or throw fireworks at other people.
• Carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.

Sparklers should not be considered harmless for kids. A significant number of young children are injured by being poked with sparkler wires and are badly burned by sparklers each year, per the CPSC.

More than 50 percent of sparkler-related injuries happen to kids under age 14 across the country. Sparklers can reach 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit and have the potential to cause significant burn injuries. Sparklers can quickly ignite clothing and can cause grass fires if thrown on the ground. Always keep a bucket of water close by to dispose of used sparklers promptly.
