Emergency preparedness - emergency fire drill

From Emory Kidd, Director
Metcalfe County Emergency Management


Tips during September preparedness month: When is the last time you held a fire or emergency drill at your home or office?

Does your family “know the drill?” Did you just talk about it or did you actually do it – better yet – in the middle of the night?

Does everyone keep shoes handy to slip on? Do they know how to get out of the second or third story if necessary? Can they open the windows if necessary?

Phillip Coffey - Envisioning

Envisioning - By Phillip Coffey
(Response to "Ready to let go of the heat' photo)
The cattle were lowly as were the fence builders
Long ago-in the photo taken in the 21st Century
The Bovine appear to be relaxing - ruminating
About nothing that may be presently going on

We all have our moments that need some reflections
About what is really happening or maybe not
No need to hinder our thoughts - no misgivings
With no power to change, stoically - envisioning a lot

Governor: Get that vaccine

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - Today, Gov. Andy Beshear said Kentucky administered more than 5,000 monoclonal antibody treatment courses last week, but the state will only receive 4,960 courses this week due to a national shortage. They will be allocated to 79 sites around Kentucky based on backorder requests, current inventory and previous week utilization.

"We will have at least one monoclonal antibody treatment provider in each of our Area Development Districts, but there's not going to be enough anywhere," said Gov. Beshear. "If you're putting off a vaccine to have an infusion, let me tell you, an infusion is much more invasive, and there are not going to be enough of those anywhere in the commonwealth. Get that vaccine."

The Governor said 8,750 COVID-19 cases and 88 COVID-19 deaths were reported in Kentucky since Friday. Three of the Kentuckians who died were in their early twenties.

"While we hope that our weekly case numbers are plateauing, we cannot sustain a plateau at this level with the number of people it would put in the hospital," said Gov. Beshear. "On any given day, we've only got between 90 and 120 total open adult ICU beds in the state. And that's with many outpatient and elective procedures canceled to allow more space in the hospital to be converted to ICU units. This cannot become business as usual."
