WEST NILE VIRUS
Swatara Township has been notified by the Dauphin County West Nile Virus Control Program Coordinator that a mosquito that tested positive for the West Nile virus was found in the Oakleigh section of the township. The Dauphin County West Nile Program Coordinator stated that they will continue to monitor the area and treat larva and adult mosquitoes as necessary. Concerned residents may contact Dauphin County West Nile Virus Program Coordinator Christopher Hooper at (717) 921-8100 or the PA Department of Health for more information.
 
The Swatara Township Board of Commissioners remind residents to take precautionary measures in all areas of the township. Suggested measures include the use of bug spray, wearing long sleeves and pants to avoid being bitten, and avoiding the outdoors around active mosquito times of dawn and dusk. Residents may also help with mosquito control by cleaning gutters, eliminating standing water in any type of container, and keeping bird bath water fresh by changing daily.  


SUMMER SWIMMING SAFETY
 
In light of recent tragic incidents involving swimming pools the Swatara Township Police Department offers the following safety tips as provided by the American Red Cross:
  • Secure your pool with appropriate barriers. Completely surround your pool with a 4-feet high fence or barrier with a self-closing, self-latching gate. Place a safety cover on the pool or hot tub when not in use and remove any ladders or steps used for access. Consider installing a pool alarm that goes off if anyone enters the pool.
  • Keep children under active supervision at all times. Stay in arm’s reach of young kids. Designate a responsible person to watch the water when people are in the pool—never allow anyone to swim alone. Have young or inexperienced swimmers wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket.
  • Ensure everyone in the home knows how to swim well by enrolling them in age-appropriate water orientation and learn-to-swim courses from the Red Cross.
  • Keep your pool or hot tub water clean and clear. Maintain proper chemical levels, circulation and filtration. Regularly test and adjust the chemical levels to minimize the risk of earaches, rashes or more serious diseases.
  • Establish and enforce rules and safe behaviors, such as “no diving,” “stay away from drain covers,” “swim with a buddy” and “walk please.”
  • Ensure everyone in the home knows how to respond to aquatic emergencies by having appropriate safety equipment and taking water safety, first aid and CPR courses from the Red Cross.
  • The Swatara Township Police Department is hopeful that this message will serve the two-fold purpose of raising awareness of the importance of practicing water safety and that all community members will take these steps to ensure that water safety is a priority.
