Rattlesnake Alert

San Francisco, CA – California Poison Control System (CPCS) (http://www.calpoison.org) reminds Californians that with warm weather, rattlesnakes are more likely to be found on hiking trails and sunning in rural areas. Even baby rattlesnakes possess dangerous venom as soon as they hatch.

 

A rattlesnake bite can produce painful swelling, bruising, tissue destruction, bleeding problems and, in rare cases, can be fatal. Most bites occur between the months of April and October. (Click this link to hear the sound a rattlesnake makes (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/22/Rattlesnake.ogg).

 

Some rattlesnake bite prevention tips include:

  • Wear boots and long pants when hiking.
  • Stay on trails when hiking, away from underbrush and tall weeds.
  • Do not touch or disturb a snake, even if it appears dead.
  • Carefully inspect logs or rocks before sitting on them.
  • Never hike alone in remote areas. Always have someone with you who can assist in an emergency.
  • Teach children to respect snakes and to leave them alone!

Become a CASA Volunteer!

NVCSS CASA will be holding two CASA training sessions in early 2018.
Training in Shasta County [Redding] begins on Wednesday, January 10 and will be held in the CASA Center at NVCSS at 2400 Washington Avenue.
Butte County training [Chico] begins on Thursday, February 1 and will take place at
our office in Chico.


CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. CASA volunteers are definitely superheroes for the work they do for these children!

Download the volunteer application by visiting the NVCSS website: http://www.nvcss.org/casa
Application deadline for Shasta’s training is January 4; Butte’s deadline is January 27.

Northern California Residents Disaster Assistance

Residents of Butte, Lake, Mendocino and Yuba who suffered damage or losses from the devastating fires that began October 8, 2017 and continue to burn, can now register for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), if they are able to do so.
The amendment to the presidential disaster declaration of October 10, 2017 now makes federal assistance available to eligible individuals and business owners in a total of six northern California counties: Butte, Lake, Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Yuba.
Survivors who primarily reside in one of the six designated counties can apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov or by phone at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may call 800-621-3362. The toll-free numbers are open 7am to 10pm seven days a week.
Applicants will be asked for the following information:
•    Social Security number
•    Address of the damaged primary residence
•    Description of the damage
•    Information about insurance coverage
•    A current contact telephone number
•    An address where they can receive mail
•    Bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit of funds
Disaster assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants to help pay for:
•    Temporary housing
•    Essential home repairs
•    Uninsured and underinsured personal property losses
•    Other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.


Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available for businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters. Disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries.


FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Registering with FEMA is required for federal aid, even if a survivor has registered with another disaster-relief organization, such as the American Red Cross.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.
