Prepare for Graduation with Safety in Mind

With graduation season upon us, Arizona SADD would like to remind teens and their parents to celebrate safely.

Prom and graduation season is a special time for most teens, maybe even considered a ‘rite of passage.’ Parents want their teen to experience the excitement and fun of this time of year; however, they may also have concerns about their teen's safety.

When summer temperatures start rising, so does the risk of heat-related injuries for children and pets left in vehicles.

Rescue crews say something as simple as a charged cellphone can be the difference between a rescue and a recovery.

We are approaching the summer months in Arizona. This means Arizona families will find ways to beat the heat.

According to the National Fire Protection Agency, July is the peak month, barely beating out May, for home fires resulting from Grilling accidents. On average 8,900 home fires nationwide are started by grilling each year.

As temperatures increase over the next several weeks, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office would like to remind you to take the follow precautions as you enjoy the spring season:

Police are warning parents about a virtual kidnapping scam that begins with a single phone call.

The Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division cautions consumers to beware of potential fraud when buying a car.

Cybercriminals are trying to trick payroll employees who work for businesses. The scam first surfaced last tax season and this year, it's already getting traction.

The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office has received several phone calls from people and businesses who are claiming top level command staff from the PCSO are notifying them of existing warrants.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless and colorless gas known as the “silent killer.” The Centers for Disease Control estimates that carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning claims nearly 400 lives and causes more than 20,000 visits to hospital emergency departments annually.

It’s a social media trend that could quickly turn deadly. Teens are putting laundry pods into their mouths as part of the “Tide Pod Challenge,” and if the contents are ingested, the results could land your child or teen in the hospital.

Fire pits are popular, functional and very dangerous but Rural Metro Fire is warning of the dangers of fire pits and recommending safety measures.

Each year, more than 3 billion toys and games are sold in the United States, and more than half of those are sold during the holiday season. Although the majority of toys are safe, they can be dangerous if misused or if they fall into the hands of children who are too young to play with them.

Happy Holidays! To ensure your safety this holiday season, Sheriff Lamb and the Pinal County Sheriff's Office hopes you'll consider the following safety tips.
