Butler Fire Department: Fireworks Safety Encouraged

American traditions of parades, cookouts, and fireworks help us celebrate the summer season, especially the Fourth of July.

Fireworks can, however, turn a joyful holiday into a painful memory when children or adults are injured while incorrectly using fireworks.

It is estimated that over 10.500 people were treated in hospital emergency rooms in 2014 for injuries associated with fireworks.

51% of those injuries were to the extremities, and 38% were to the head.

The risk of injury is highest for young people 5-9, followed y age group 10-19.

To reduce the risk of injury from fireworks, use them with caution and follow some basic safety rules:

1. Read and follow all instructions and warnings.

2. Sparklers, considered by many to be safe, burn at very high temperatures, can easily ignite clothing, and stay hot long after burning out. They can be as dangerous to children as lighters and matches. Be sure to collect all burned out sparkler wires for proper disposal.

3. Only older children should be allowed to use fireworks under close supervision. Younger children should not be allowed to play with fireworks.

4. Never allow running or horseplay when using fireworks.

5. Use lighters with a child resistant feature. Keep matches and lighters away from smaller children.

6. Light fireworks outdoors, one at a time. Light them on a clear, smooth, flat surface away from buildings, dry vegetation, or flammable materials.

7. Keep water nearby for emergencies.

8. Never try to relight or handle malfunctioning fireworks. Douse and soak them with water and throw them away.

9. Be sure other people and pets are out of range before igniting fireworks.

10. Never experiment with fireworks or ignite them in a glass or metal container.

11. Never try to make your own fireworks.

12. Keep unused fireworks away from firing areas.

13. Store fireworks in a cool, dry place, away from sources of ignition, and out of reach of children. 


Be aware of what fireworks are allowed in your area, and rules for their possession and use. In the City of Butler,

The Butler Fire Department and City of Butler Emergency Management Agency would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Independence Day. Please use common sense by following basic safety rules.

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Fourth of July Holiday Crack down Garden City Police Joins National Fourth of July Weekend Crackdown to Reduce Substance–Impaired Driving Fatalities

‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ Campaign Will Target Substance–Impaired Drivers [Garden City, Mo] – Local police will be out in full force as part of the annual nationwide Fourth of July weekend “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on substance–impaired driving. The crackdown, which will include high-visibility enforcement throughout Garden City, will run from July 1-5, 2016.

The effective nationwide substance–impaired driving crackdown will include high-visibility enforcement, high-profile events, and will be supported by national paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb substance–impaired driving over the Fourth (4th) of July holiday.

The Garden City Police Department stated its officers will be aggressively looking for substance–impaired drivers during the crackdown and will arrest anyone caught driving impaired by alcohol and/or drugs.

“Every year, about one third of all motor vehicle traffic deaths involve one or more substance–impaired drivers or motorcycle operators,” said Chief Thomas Alber. “In 2015, 192 people were killed and 644 seriously injured on Missouri’s roadways in crashes that involved at least one substance-impaired driver.” That works out to approximately one substance impaired driver involved fatality every 1-3/4 days.

“Research has shown that high-visibility enforcement like the 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' campaign reduces substance–impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. By joining this nationwide effort, we will make Garden City’s roadways safer for everyone throughout the holiday,” said Chief Alber.

“We want to remind everyone that getting behind the wheel impaired by alcohol and /or drugs is a terrible idea. Unfortunately, not only do alcohol and /or drugs impair your ability to operate a vehicle safely, it also impairs your judgment and good sense about whether you can, or should drive. If you have any doubt about your sobriety, do not get behind the wheel. If you do choose to drive impaired, you will be arrested. No warnings. No excuses,” Chief Alber said.

“Substance–impaired driving is simply not worth the risk. So do not take the chance. Remember, we will be out in force and we will be watching, so “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”, said Chief Thomas R. Alber

Celebrating Stars, Stripes and Pet Safety!

Celebrating Stars, Stripes and Pet Safety!
Fourth of July Dos and Don’ts from the Humane Society of Missouri 
 
Fourth of July celebrations would not be the same without hot weather and fireworks lighting up the sky.  However, for pets the heat and sudden cracks and booms can be more harmful and frightening than fun.
 
Remember the Humane Society of Missouri’s number one life-saving tip for celebrating this Independence Day:
70 Degrees & Over, Don’t Take Rover!
 
If you see a pet in heat-related distress call local police and the Humane Society of Missouri
Animal Cruelty Hotline – 314-647-4400.
 
In addition to hot weather safety, follow these simple “Dos and Don’ts” to make the holiday enjoyable for everyone in the family:
 
DO give pets a quiet, cool place to retreat inside where heat and sounds are less intense. Dogs and cats are more sensitive to loud noises than people are, so those booms can be extremely uncomfortable. Keeping them inside will also protect them from stray fireworks or from those who may seek to intentionally harm pets with fireworks.
o   Their retreat could be a basement or interior room with access to clean, cool water.
o   Close all windows and turn on a radio or television to mask the sounds.
o   Have your pet’s favorite toys and bed to comfort him.
o   If you know your pet is anxious with loud noises, such as fireworks and thunder storms, visit your veterinarian this week to discuss options for anti-anxiety or sedative medications.
 
DO keep pets at home, if possible. If you can’t avoid bringing Fido to the festivities, keep him on a short, secure leash at all times and watch for signs of stress. Never use a retractable leash in crowded areas. And have a back-up plan should your dog become overwhelmed by the activities.
 
DO make sure dogs wear a collar and ID tag at all times. For more secure identification, pet owners should consider microchipping as a permanent way to identify pets and help ensure a safe return if lost.
 
DO keep the veterinarian’s phone number handy in case of any medical emergencies.
 
DO maintain a pet’s normal diet and keep them away from barbecue leftovers, like hot dogs or steak gristle, which could upset a pet’s digestive track.
 
DON’T leave pets in a parked car, even at night during a fireworks display. Fourth of July is one of the hottest holidays of the year. Even at 70 degrees, internal car temperatures can skyrocket to more than 100 degrees in just minutes.
 
DON’T take pets to celebrations with fireworks. The excitement and noise can cause anxiety and some fearful pets will panic and run. 
 
DON’T let pets loose or leave pets in a yard unattended during the holiday weekend, even if they’re only a few backyards away. A stray bottle rocket zipping through the yard could frighten or injure animals. Even dogs and cats that are usually “outdoor” animals should be brought inside during Fourth of July festivities.
 
DON’T confine fearful animals on a chain or in a small area such as a crate. This could increase their panic.
 
  • DON’T let pets near the “human stuff” – things like sparklers, glow sticks, lighter fluid, sunscreen, insect repellent or citronella candles. Also keep an eye on alcoholic beverages, so thirsty pets don’t accidentally take a drink.




Bates County man charged with attempting to escape from custody

Philip Shipley
On June 22, 2016 Deputies responded to County Road 9001 in Drexel, MO in reference to a suspicious person and vehicle. The Deputy located the suspicious vehicle parked behind two rows of hay bales. 

The driver’s side door was open on the vehicle and no one was in the vehicle. An area canvass was done by the Deputies but was unsuccessful. 

Dispatch then made contact with the reporting party again who advised Dispatch that there was a man at her door. Deputies responded to the residence and found a man walking away from the house. 

The man was given lawful orders by the Deputies. It took several commands for the man to comply with the orders. 

The man was identified as Philip Shipley (DOB 5/23/1978). The homeowners knew who Shipley was and said he didn’t have a need to be nor should he be at their house. Shipley was issued a warning for trespassing.

Mr. Shipley gave Deputies consent to search his vehicle. While they were searching his car, Shipley attempted to slip his handcuffs from his back to his front. Shipley began to resist Deputies.

During the search of Shipley’s vehicle, Deputies located several homemade weapons. There were also a lot of tools in the car that appeared to be stolen. Shipley’s car was towed from the scene for investigative purposes.

Mr. Shipley was charged with Escape from Custody and his bond was set at $2500.00 cash or surety. More charges are expected to be filed.

Missouri Governor Vetos Gun Rights Bill

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Governor Jay Nixon has vetoed Senate Bill 656, which would have eliminated the current requirements that individuals must obtain training, education, a background check and a permit in order to carry a concealed firearm in Missouri.

The bill would have allowed individuals, including those from other states, to legally carry a concealed firearm even though they have been denied a permit because their background check revealed criminal offenses or caused the sheriff to believe they posed a danger.

The Governor will be discussing his veto during an address this morning to hundreds of law enforcement officers from around the state at the Missouri Police Chiefs Association annual conference.

“Here in Missouri, responsible gun ownership and support for the Second Amendment are strongly held values. These values are part of who we are, and a tradition we pass from generation to generation,” said Gov. Nixon. "As Governor, I have signed bills to expand the rights of law-abiding Missourians to carry concealed and am always willing to consider ways to further improve our CCW process. But I cannot support the extreme step of throwing out that process entirely, eliminating sensible protections like background checks and training requirements, and taking away the ability of sheriffs to protect their communities.”

Since 2003, Missouri law has set forth a process for obtaining a concealed carry permit. This well-established process requires classroom and range training, as well as a background check and review by the sheriff, before an applicant can obtain a concealed carry permit.

Under this well-established process, sheriffs have also appropriately rejected many individuals’ applications and those decisions have been upheld by courts on appeal.

In his veto message, Gov. Nixon provided examples of individuals who could automatically carry a concealed weapon under this law who cannot do so today, including individuals who have pled guilty to a felony and received a suspended imposition of sentence; individuals who have been convicted of misdemeanor assault; and individuals with two or more misdemeanor drug possession convictions.

“I cannot support a system that would ignore a determination by the chief law enforcement officer of a county that an individual is a danger to the community and should not be authorized to carry a concealed firearm,” said the Governor in his veto message. “Allowing currently prohibited individuals to automatically be able to carry concealed would make Missouri less safe.”

The Governor’s concerns echo those voiced by law enforcement agencies, including the Missouri Police Chiefs Association (MPCA), representing 600 members statewide, and the Missouri Fraternal Order of Police, which represents 6,400 law enforcement officers across the state.

In a letter to the Governor, Missouri Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Ahlbrand wrote, “Make no mistake, we are staunch supporters of the Second Amendment. We feel, however, that the enactment of SB 656, specifically the allowance of giving anyone not currently prohibited from possessing a firearms, the ability to carry a concealed firearm without a permit, will cost not only citizen lives but will also be extremely dangerous to law enforcement officers.”


“The Missouri Police Chiefs Association is concerned for the safety of citizens and officers, through the loss of the balance that has existed in Missouri relating to the carrying of concealed weapons for the past several years, and the language in SB 656 that will even allow those persons convicted of crimes to use a verdict that includes a suspended imposition of sentence (SIS) to legally carry a concealed weapon,” said MPCA President Chief Paul Williams. “During a time that balanced approaches and solutions are needed more than ever to face increasing challenges, there is no need to create an imbalance, and potentially decrease the safety of citizens and police officers alike, through such a profound change in Missouri’s concealed carry law, which has served this state well over the past several years.”
