Environmental Expo

Summer Newsletter

My summer newsletter went out this week to residents in the district recapping some of my legislative accomplishments from this session, as well as my goals moving forward. I am proud to report record education funding, lifesaving CPR legislation for high schools, a law aimed at protecting animals by ending puppy mill cruelty, pipeline safety initiatives and more.

Heat Waves and You 

With the exhaustingly hot weather we have been facing, I want to share some information from Harrisburg on staying safe in heat waves. Each year, heat waves kill more people than hurricanes, lightning, tornados, earthquakes, and floods combined, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Remember to stay cool, hydrated, and informed during a heat wave.

Heat stroke can lead to brain damage and death if the victim is not quickly cooled.  Chronic conditions and prescription drugs may impair the body’s ability to regulate its temperature, creating critical conditions for the elderly.  Those with disabilities and special medical needs may struggle with mobility making it imperative to alert a trusted neighbor to your situation.

Also at increased risk are overweight individuals, those with physical illnesses, and infants and children.

Individuals who work or exercise outdoors during extreme heat are susceptible to dehydration and heat-related illness during a heat wave.  Familiarize yourself with the signs and symptoms of the five heat-related illnesses.

Assistance for Veterans

I partner with the Pennsylvania American Legion every month to assist local veterans at my Brookhaven office. A representative from this organization will be helping veterans with issues on:

Date: Wednesday, July 24th

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Location: Senator Killion’s Brookhaven Office, 4110 Edgmont Avenue, Brookhaven, PA

I encourage veterans and their families who have questions about benefits and programs to schedule an appointment during these assistance hours. Appointments can be made by contacting my office at (610) 447 – 3163. This service is offered the fourth Wednesday of each month.
