A Message From RPS: Kids and Pets in Hot Cars

RPS Social

The Regina Police Service would like to remind the public that the temperatures are rising, which means vehicles heat up quickly. If you must make stops in your daily travels, please, take your small children indoors with you; don’t leave them in the car.  If you have pets, it’s best to leave them at home.  Your small children may not be able to open windows/doors to cool themselves, and pets are always wearing fur coats, so don’t take chances with their safety.

As a bystander:  if you see a child in a car who appears to be in distress (limp/listless, sweating profusely) then please call 9-1-1. Keep calm and do not break the window (unless you are specifically instructed by the operator or an officer).  If you see a pet in a hot vehicle that appears to be in distress (limp/listless, foaming at the mouth) then please call the Animal Protection line (in Regina) at 306-777-7700. (If the vehicle is on/running, there may be air conditioning going for the pup and it is likely not in distress.)

Breaking someone’s vehicle window could result in a charge of Mischief, which is a Criminal Code charge.  It may also result in having to attend small claims court and being ordered to pay for the damages.

In both scenarios, please follow the operator’s instructions and wait for emergency services to get there. If you are with someone, have them run into the nearest establishment and give the manager or staff the vehicle make, colour, and plate number and ask them to make an announcement on the business’ public address system.

The Regina Police Service would like to thank the public’s cooperation with these calls. Help us make this summer a less stressful one for all.

21st Annual Gutsy Walk – June 5th Regina 2016 – Rick Hansen Park

Gutsy Walk 2016

21st Annual Gutsy Walk to raise funds for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada, June 5th 2016 Location:  Regina – Rick Hansen Park

Abdominal cramping, diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, fever, anemia, bleeding, and fatigue are some of the debilitating symptoms experienced by people living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

On Sunday, June 5th, 2016, Regina residents will join Canadians from coast to coast in an effort to find a cure for these inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Every dollar raised through the 21st Annual Gutsy Walk will go towards Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s Make it Stop. For Life national campaign. The goal of the campaign is to raise $100 million for research, education, advocacy and patient support so that children and adults with IBD can live with less pain, less shame, and fewer hospital visits and surgeries.

Gutsy Walk events will be held in six Saskatchewan communities, including Regina. The Regina Gutsy Walk will start at 12:00 p.m. at Rick Hansen Park (registration begins at 10 a.m. with warm up at 11:45 a.m.) for a 5 km walk.  The family-friendly event will include a BBQ and children’s entertainment. Registration is free.

Regina’s Honorary Chair this year is Dylan, age 15. “My journey with this disease started when I was 9 years old, with a diagnosis of colitis. Over the years my health got progressively worse and I was sent out to the Alberta Children’s Hospital. In 2014, I was not doing well and I could not hold down any food. I was in extreme pain and each day was a struggle for me to get out of bed. Several trips to Calgary that year showed that I have narrowings in my intestines and it didn’t stop. By the end of 2014, a feeding tube was inserted into my nose and I felt like I had lost control of the disease.

December 18 2014 in Calgary, they removed 28cm of my small intestine, the bottom section of my colon, my illeocecal valve and my appendix. It was over a year ago that I got my surgery and I can now participate in my life again! Don’t get me wrong I still have to sit on an IV every 7 weeks and try to remember to take all my other pills but I’m doing ok. On June 5th I invite you to come out with me and support people living with this disease!”

Regina Community Garden Survey

From the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region:

A few months ago, a survey was sent out to community associations from Health Promotion to gather data on community gardens in Regina. One of the outcomes of this survey was a map showing the locations of community gardens in Regina. This can be found at: http://foodregina.ca/2016/03/30/community-gardening-in-regina/ (must use an updated browser to view interactive map). The intention of the map is to help people locate community gardens in their neighbourhoods and learn more about community gardens in Regina.
