Question of the Month:

 Will You Come to (City/Town)?

 

Whether it’s a conversation with a potential client on the phone, an individual we meet at an event, or just someone we’re talking to at lunch it seems that the curiosity question of the month is, “Will you come to (insert any city or town name in Arizona?”. 

 

The answer – no matter what city or town you ask about – is YES!  T.A.C.T. 48 / AZ is here to assist EVERY community within Arizona.  If you don’t know who to call, it’s probably us – so give us a ring and we’ll be there for you!

Homeless Encampments: Professional Assistance Needed for Proper Remediation

Arizona Crime Prevention Association (ACPA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that hosted their Law Enforcement Conference in May that T.A.C.T. 48 / AZ was proud to be able to sponsor.  One of the many topics presented was from the Tempe Police Department regarding the homeless issues within their city and how they are being handled.  It’s a reminder of the community’s concern for the welfare of the individuals in our community and the environmental impacts that can occur when such encampments are not addressed. 

 

T.A.C.T. 48 / AZ assists the community in the necessary, professional cleaning when encampments are abandoned by their tenants.  These locations often have drug paraphernalia and syringes scatter about that aren’t easily visible along with containers of human waste.   These all present their own individual dangers to the community. 

 

If there is a situation in your area, please contact local authorities to help the homeless individual’s potential get the assistance they need and then call us for the remediation.

Excessive Heat Can Be Deadly

 

As we enter the summer months of Arizona, we can all use the important reminders of being aware of the heat.  Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can result in heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion, heat cramps, and the more severe heat stroke. Heat stroke, characterized by a body temperature exceeding 103°F, can cause confusion, seizures, and loss of consciousness, often requiring immediate medical attention to prevent fatal outcomes.

 

Vulnerable populations, including the elderly, infants, and individuals with chronic medical conditions, are particularly susceptible. Additionally, those working outdoors or living in poorly ventilated environments face higher risks. Extreme heat exacerbates pre-existing health conditions, such as cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, and can lead to increased hospital admissions and mortality rates.

 

Preventative measures, such as staying hydrated, seeking air-conditioned environments, and avoiding strenuous activities during peak heat, are essential to mitigate the dangers of excessive heat. Public health initiatives and community support systems play a crucial role in protecting vulnerable groups and reducing heat-related morbidity and mortality.
