Safety: Hot Whether Injuries
HEAT STROKE occurs when the body's system of temperature regulation fails and  body temperature rises to critical levels. This condition is caused by a combination of highly variable factors, and its occurrences difficult to predict. Heat stroke is a medical emergency. The primary signs and symptoms of heat stroke are confusion; irrational behavior; loss of consciousness; convulsions; a lack of sweating (usually); hot, dry skin; and an abnormally high body temperature, e.g., a rectal temperature of 40.5°C (105°F).. If body temperature is too high, it may result in death. Individuals with heat stroke have high mortality, with rates ranging from 21 to 63 percent. The elevated metabolic temperatures caused by a combination of work load and environmental heat load, both of which contribute to heat stroke, are also highly variable and difficult to predict. If a person shows signs of possible heat stroke, professional medical treatment should be obtained immediately. The person should be placed in a shady area and the outer clothing should be removed. The person's skin should be wetted and air movement around the person should be increased to improve evaporative cooling until  professional methods of cooling are initiated and the seriousness of the condition can be assessed. Fluids should be replaced as soon as  possible. The medical outcome of an episode of heat stroke depends on the victim's  physical fitness and the timing and effectiveness of first aid treatment. Regardless of the person's protests, no member suspected of being ill from heat stroke should be sent home or left unattended.Be Safe…….

Summer Encampment
 is right around the corner sign up mow. Encampments are week-long activities that serve to build a foundation for cadets from which to build their Civil Air Patrol experience. These wee- long events  provide in-depth orientation to Civil Air Patrol and the United States Air Force. First time cadets can expect to be challenged both mentally and physically during a busy and exciting week of hands on leadership development training, aerospace events, and local site activities. Cadets returning as staff will  be challenged even further through the leadership roles they will fill and staff duties they will perform. All cadets will have the opportunity to be introduced to the military, learn to overcome challenges, develop time-management skills, enhance their interpersonal skills, and have a great time. The Summer Encampment will be held at Camp Blanding Florida on
