Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent flu infection, and the best way to protect yourself and your community from illness. The CDC recommends everyone aged 6 months and older should receive an annual influenza vaccination.

In addition to vaccination, these preventive measures can help stop flu and other diseases from circulating:
• Cover your cough and sneeze.
• Wash your hands often. Use soap and warm water.
• Stay home when you're sick. Protect others at school and work by staying home at least 24-hours after your fever (100+ degrees) subsides (subsides without fever reducing medicines).
• Take antiviral medications if prescribed.
• Clean surfaces. Flu germs can live for hours on hard surfaces. Make sure your home and workspace are wiped down frequently, especially where children are playing.

Flu vaccine is available from health care providers, local health departments, and many pharmacies (for people 11 and older). Some pharmacies can also immunize children under 11 with a prescription.

When hazardous weather or other life-threatening situations are about to occur in your area, SECONDS can make the difference and ensure your safety. NOAA Weather Radio helps provide that lead-time by alerting you to impending hazards. The NOAA’s National Weather Service’s vision is to be America’s “no surprise” weather service. Our goal is to provide you with as much lead-time before a hazardous weather-related event occurs and provide you critical information on emergency/life threatening situations. With early warning from a NOAA Weather Radio receiver you and your loved ones have additional time to take adequate precautions, find shelter, or reach safety. NOAA Weather Radio receivers equipped with an alarm feature can be programmed to sound a tone and give you immediate information about life-threatening situations in your vicinity any time, day or night. Public safety experts agree NOAA Weather Radio receivers should be standard equipment in every home.
