Beware of Extreme Heat This Summer

avoiding a heat stroke

Summer is in full swing here in California, and many parts of the state are feeling the heat. While for some this is a nice change of pace from the cold of winter, for others this is just another extreme to be dealt with. Just like the cold, the heat can become harmful and even deadly. That is why people need to take the proper steps to ensure their health and well-being this summer.

When the weather grows indescribably hot, there are several things a person should do to keep cool. At excessive temperatures, keeping cool isn’t just about comfort, it is about staying healthy. At high temperatures, a person can suffer from heatstroke or heat exhaustion. Both can be very serious conditions, have their own unique symptoms, and require their own responses to keep the person suffering from them safe. The following information comes from the National Weather Service’s website.

In addition, heat cramps could be a warning sign of these illnesses starting to take effect in the person. If a person has been in hot weather and is suffering from cramps, usually in their legs or abdomen, they should:

  • Apply firm pressure to the cramping muscle.
  • Massage the muscle.
  • Sip on water so long as the person isn’t nauseous.

Feeling Tired from the Heat?

Spending too much time in the sun, or even just a warm area, can cause a person to suffer from heat exhaustion. When a person is suffering from heat exhaustion, they will experience the following symptoms:

  • Cool, pale, clammy skin.
  • Dizziness.
  • Fainting.
  • Fast, weak pulse.
  • Heavy sweating.
  • Muscle cramps.
  • Nausea, vomiting.
  • Weakness.

If a person is suffering these symptoms, they should get to a cooler area as soon as possible. They should loosen, or if possible, remove clothing to help cool off. If the person is conscious, give them sips of water. Apply cool, wet clothes to as much of the body as possible.

If the person vomits more than once, seek immediate medical attention.

The Signs of Heat Stroke

Heat stroke is another, more serious heat related condition. The symptoms of heat stroke include:

  • Altered mental state.
  • Body temperature over 103 degrees.
  • Confusion.
  • Dizziness.
  • Faints.
  • Hot, red, dry, or moist skin.
  • Nausea.
  • Rapid, strong pulse.
  • Shallow breathing.
  • Throbbing headache.

If a person exhibits these symptoms, contact 911 or get them to a hospitable immediately. If waiting for emergency services, move the person into a cooler area, preferably with air conditioning. Apply cool, wet cloths to as much as the body as possible or put them in a cool bath. Fan them only if the air temperature is under 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do not give the person fluids.

Stay Cool This Summer

During the warm summer months, it is important for person to keep cool, not just to remain comfortable, but to remain in good health as well. Not only does a person need to keep an eye on themselves during these warm times, but they need to watch out for those who can’t take care of themselves or those who are more susceptible to heat such as young children and the elderly. Doing so could keep them safe this summer.

It is also important to remember to stay hydrated when in hot weather. The human body uses water, in the form of sweat, to help regulate the body’s temperature. Without enough water, the body can begin to suffer from one of these illnesses.

What are some ways that you like to keep cool during the summer, especially while working? Let us know in the comments down below and help other people keep cool this summer.

When Search Warrants Are and Are Not Warranted

call-fontana-bailbonds

A search warrant is a court-order that allows the police to search specific property and items. Sometimes the police do not need a warrant, other times, they do. On those other times, the police will want to conduct the search, but not bring a warrant with them because they have yet to obtain it. The owners of the property may not be aware that they can deny the police the search until they return with the warrant. When the police do have a warrant, the property owner may not know what the warrant is for, so to help protect yourself, here is some information to know:

  • The police must have probable cause of criminal activity in order to get a search warrant.
  • The warrant will list the items and areas that can be searched. Anything not on the list cannot be searched. For example, if the warrant specifies a home’s living room, the police cannot search and seize anything they find in the bedroom.
  • The police can seize items they come across during their search that are not on the search warrant. For example, if they are searching the living room and unexpectedly find a gun hidden under the couch, they can take that.
  • The police may only search a person if that person is listed on the warrant. They cannot search others even if they are present at the time unless they have independent probable cause.
  • If the police do not have a warrant, they can still conduct a search only if the person allows it. The person can limit the search by agreeing “yes to searching this” or “no to searching that.” This is usually valid for court.
  • The police can seize items that are displayed in plain view. For example, if the police pull a person over and see an open bottle of alcohol in the back seat, they can seize it, and arrest the driver.
  • If the police arrest a person, they already have the right to search the arrestee and the surrounding area.
  • If the public is genuinely in danger and/ or critical evidence will be lost in the time it takes to acquire a warrant, the police can carry out a search without that warrant.
  • In stop and frisk situations, the police can seize items (like weapons) from that person who is suspected of criminal activity.

The lines may still appear blurred for when police do or do not need a warrant, or for when a person can and cannot deny a search. So we recommend doing extra research or talking with a lawyer.

The Risks and Rights of Bail Bond Co-Signing

call-fontana-bailbonds

Bail bond co-signers have a very important role in the release of a defendant. Their role can often also be mentally stressful.

Co-signers are often needed to secure a bail bond. Without a co-signer on a bail bond, the defendant will remain in jail. When a defendant does get a co-signer on their bail bond, then the co-signer has his or her money, valuables, and other collateral at risk. The co-signer must ensure that the defendant shows up for court because if they do not, the collateral that they pledged can be claimed by the bail bond company.

Naturally, the co-signer has rights as well. Most importantly, he or she can withdraw their signature from the bail bond at any time, without consequence to themselves. Of course, the consequence to the defendant is that they would be taken back into custody until they can get another co-signer.

Get more information on bail bond co-signing and what it takes by contacting Fontana Bail Bond Store online, or call 866-736-6977 now.

How Can I Reduce My Bail?

call-fontana-bailbonds

Simply put, there really is no way you can reduce your bail once the judge has declared it. You can ask that the judge to reconsider, but in all likelihood, that bail amount will remain the same. The judge had already taken these facts into consideration:

  • The crime that was committed
  • Whether or not you have a criminal history
  • Your financial ability to pay for bail
  • Whether or not you are a flight risk
  • The relationships you have with others in the community

So, good luck trying to ask the judge to lower your overall bail amount.

However, that does not mean you have to pay that entire amount to get out of jail. You can use a bail bond to get out. With a bail bond, you end up only paying 10% of the full bail amount. The catch is that you will not get this 10% returned to you. If you were paying 100% of your bail amount in cash, without using a bail bond, then you could potentially receive this money back in the end.

At this point, it is a question of which one type of bail offers you more comfort and flexibility for your finances. If you are like most people, you will go the bail bond route.

Ask a professional bail agent over at Fontana Bail Bond Store for more details on bail bonds and to learn just how flexible the company is.

Halloween Checkpoints – What to Prepare For

call-fontana-bailbonds

Halloween for adults is completely different than Halloween for kids. Costumes are still involved, but instead of candy and trick-or-treating, it is going out to clubs and parties, while probably consuming copious amounts of alcohol. There is nothing wrong with that, until drinking and driving is involved.

We hope there will be none of that.

Nonetheless, expect there to be a few DUI checkpoints around the city over Halloween weekend. They are not in place to ruin everyone’s fun, just those who have been drinking and driving.

If you do drive into a checkpoint, follow the officer’s orders: pull over, roll down your window, and answer his or her questions of where you are going, where you are coming from, and if you have been drinking. The officer will then determine if you are coherent enough to drive safely on to your destination, if you must wait a little while at the checkpoint to sober up, or if you have to be arrested.

We hope no one is arrested over Halloween weekend, but just in case you, or someone you know is, and needs help bailing out of jail, please contact us at Fontana Bail Bond Store so we can assist with bail.

We can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, online and at 866-736-6977 .
