Back to School Month Means Back to Safety

Bike, Walk, and Drive Safely!

As students and their parents prepare for the upcoming school year with trips to the stores for supplies and clothes, safety should be on the list for those same students and all of us who travel in a motor vehicle. It is important to remind our new drivers to buckle up, not text and drive, and follow recommended speed limits. All drivers can help in this safety initiative by paying attention to students biking or walking to school. The important message is that all of us in Pickaway County can start the school year off right by making safety a priority.

“This is the time of year when school buses will join the roadways, and motorists need to remember the laws that protect those buses and our younger citizens who ride them”, noted Teresa C. Carper, Director for Safe Communities of Pickaway County. “Make sure you yield to these buses, and pay attention to those students who are entering or exiting this type of motor vehicle.”

Law enforcement will continue to be on alert for violations of safety laws, and will work to keep our roadways safe. Students who drive to school must also have a sense of responsibility to themselves and to those friends who ride with them by “Buckling Up Every Trip Every Time” and remember that to “Stay Alive” they need NOT to “Text and Drive”. Ohio law prohibits teens from using any type of electronic device when behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.

New Medical Air Evacuation Software Deployed at Sheriff’s Office

The Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office serves as the primary PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) for all of Pickaway County. The sheriff’s office has been very proactive for decades now in keeping up with modern day technology and going above the basic standards in public safety communications. Currently the sheriff’s office is in the process of upgrading server equipment and software that serve our community from a day-to-day basis on 911 emergency responses and calls for service.

According to Sheriff Robert B. Radcliff, our office has always been a pioneer and showcase to other agencies and vendors on the standards and methods we implement within the Pickaway County 911 communications dispatching center located at the Sheriff’s Office. Some of the technology includes AVL and GPS tracking of our emergency vehicle units. Hi-resolution aerial imagery of the entire county that plots 911 caller information on digital maps so we know exactly where a 911 call is coming from. Nixle public notification alerting system. Backup procedures and failover radio communications capability to the Circleville Police department when needed. And many other technological advancements.

Today the Pickaway Sheriff’s Office is working with Medflight and AirEvac who are the primary medical air evacuation service providers in our area to implement a new software app. Medflight deployed a new desktop and mobile app called Metro Alert in early Spring of 2015 that allows GPS coordinates and dispatch notification to be done in the field by a mobile device or the click of a mouse within our 911 dispatching communications center. This new technology helps speed up the process in getting a medical air evacuation dispatched out by eliminating time it takes for communication personnel to pick up a phone and dial a number. AirEvac is currently in the process of developing an emergency medical dispatching app that is expected to be launched later this year.

Sheriff Radcliff said that when we became aware of this new public safety technology at no cost to our county, we moved on getting it implemented. Currently the Sheriff’s Office has the Medflight software located and working in the 911 dispatching communications center and plan to have this medical emergency app deployed to other surrounding fire and EMS agencies.

Summer Months are one of the Most Dangerous Times of the Year

Although there have been no traffic fatalities for the first half of 2015, a recent crash over the July 4th weekend reminds us that the Summer Months can be one of the most dangerous times of the year. Although most of us think of the winter as the most dangerous time with the ever changing weather conditions, summer poses different types of dangers. There are more people on the road, more inexperienced drivers are behind the wheel, and there are special events and holidays where alcohol use is possible during the summer months. Also, motorcycles and pedestrians are out enjoying the better weather during this time of year. All these factors add to the odds of potential crashes. Safe Communities of Pickaway County continues to remind drivers AND passengers of all ages to “Buckle Up Every Trip Every Time”. Furthermore, everyone needs to observe the slogan “Stay Alive Don’t Text and Drive” and to never, ever drive impaired.

As of June 2015, there had been zero fatalities on Pickaway County roadways. In 2014, there was one fatality documented during this same period. As the year progressed, there were multiple fatalities as the result of motor vehicle crashes. These numbers do not reflect the number of crashes that ended in significant injury or property loss. Even though a recent crash ended in a fatality, Pickaway County roadways have been safer overall. Keeping safety a part of your routine throughout the year can help keep those numbers low.

Whether you are a seasoned driver, a motorcycle rider, a teen driver, or the parent of a teen driver, you can learn more how to be safe when behind the wheel. Visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website at www.nhtsa.gov to learn more about safe driving habits.
