Broadcaster Press 5 June 19, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com American Red Cross Offers Heat Safety Information SIOUX FALLS – Summer’s warm weather can be deadly. Some people are more at risk of developing a heat-related illness, including adults age 65 and older, those with chronic medical conditions, people who work outside, infants and children and athletes. The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls has issued a heat advisory for parts of the area starting Friday afternoon. The American Red Cross has steps you can take to help stay safe when the temperatures soar. TEN HEAT SAFETY TIPS 1. Hot cars can be deadly. Never leave children or pets in your vehicle. The inside temperature of the car can quickly reach 120 degrees. 2. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol. 3. Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. 4. If someone doesn’t have air conditioning, they should seek relief from the heat during the warmest part of the day in places like schools, libraries, theaters, malls, etc. 5. Avoid extreme temperature changes. 6. Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored cloth- ing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays. 7. Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. 8. Postpone outdoor games and activities. The Red Cross has a First Aid, Health and Safety for Coaches online course designed to give those who take it an overview of first aid and "best practices" for many first aid situations encountered by coaches. Find out more here. 9. Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat. Take frequent breaks if working outdoors. 10. Check on animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat. Make sure they have plenty of cool water. More information on how heat can affect your furry friends is available here.

Dennis Daugaard has requested a Presidential Disaster Declaration to help three northern South Dakota counties recover from spring flooding that did more than $3.1 million in damage to public property. The request covers public assistance for Campbell, McPherson and Walworth counties. The flooding occurred May 1718, 2018. In a letter to President Donald Trump, Gov. Daugaard says more than 13 inches of rain fell along a line from Selby to Long Lake, South Dakota. The heavy rain resulted in flooded roads and the wind gusts between 60 and 80 miles per hour caused additional damage. Lake Hiddenwood Dam at Hiddenwood State Park in Walworth County was breached due to the heavy rains, according to the governor. “The entire reservoir at Lake Hiddenwood was drained and water from the dam flowed for miles toward Sand Lake near the Walworth/Campbell county borders,” Gov. Daugaard wrote the President. “This resulted in significant overland flooding and many county and secondary roads went underwater and had to be barricaded by local officials.” Earlier this month, Gov. Daugaard had requested that FEMA do a joint federal, state and local preliminary damage assessment of the impacted areas for public assistance damage. That assessment was done this week. The Governor says the assessment confirmed that the three counties had suffered “severe impacts” to public infrastructure. Gov. Daugaard stated in his letter that the state has responded to seven previous Presidential Disaster Declarations since 2013. The Governor said the state still is working through the recovery process from four of those disasters with FEMA. The three counties involved in this request also were part of the presidential disaster request approved for the 2016 Christmas day blizzard. “As you understand, recovery from disasters takes years after the initial event to fully recover physically, emotionally and financially,” Gov. Daugaard says in this latest assistance request letter. South Dakota Maintains AAA With Fitch PIERRE, S.D. – Today Fitch announced that it has reaffirmed South Dakota’s AAA Issuer Default Rating with a stable outlook. “Achieving AAA is hard work, and so is maintaining that status,” said Gov. Dennis Daugaard. “By sticking to conservative budget practices and keeping our reserves at 10 percent of our annual budget, South Dakota continues to benefit from the highest rating possible from Fitch.” In the report Fitch lists the state’s balanced budget requirement, broad sales tax, ability to reduce spending, lack of long-term liabilities and anticipated revenue growth as key reasons for reaffirming the state’s AAA. The rating affects $122 million of bonds issued through the Vocational Education program within the South Dakota Health and Educational Facilities Authority as well as future bond issues made through the authority. Fitch awarded the state a AAA rating in 2016. The state is also rated AAA by S&P and Moody’s, which are expected to renew the state’s ratings next month.

Member SIPC Member SIPC “The costs associated with this disaster combined with the last seven declarations increases the state’s financial stress if federal assistance is not provided.” The request is necessary for federal disaster funds to be made available to South Dakota. If the President grants the declaration, up to 75 percent of eligible costs could be reimbursed by the government. The Governor’s request does not guarantee that funding will be made available to South Dakota. The South Dakota Office of Emergency Management will coordinate the state’s role in the request. The Office of Emergency Management is part of the Department of Public Safety. SD Century Farm & Ranch Recognition Deadline Is Aug. 10 HURON, S.D. - The South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) and the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA) will again recognize and honor longstanding South Dakota families at the 2018 South Dakota State Fair.

To qualify as a South Dakota Century Farm or Ranch, a family must have retained continuous ownership of at least 80 acres of original farmland for 100 years or more. If the family ownership of land has reached 125 or 150 years, they may apply to be recognized as a Quasquicentennial or a Sesquicentennial Farm or Ranch respectively.
