THE SATELLITE BEACH FIRE DEPARTMENT…

…is very active in our community with services that our citizens may not be aware of. In addition to providing 911 services for an emergency, the Fire Department also has a Community Health Paramedic Program. This program offers residents a “Wellness Check.” This “Wellness check ” helps residents stay ahead of an illness or injury by using a proactive approach. They will take vital signs, offer assistance with needed resources, and education along with a home safety assessment for fall prevention. The Community
Health Paramedic will also evaluate the current situation and advocate for the resident who needs medical assistance. They will recommend the most appropriate level of care and mode of transportation for the situation. This is an invaluable service and at times, it can save a life. Community Health Paramedic 24-7 on call Non-Emergency Cell Phone 321-313-4076, and Always For life threatening emergencies call 911.

MORE ON SCAMMERS!

Don’t believe everything you hear. Some folks act intentionally on their own, others in unison with other deliberate wrongdoers, and still others foolishly and unknowingly making themselves useful to such endeavors. The measure of evil is never zero. Always be aware!

Be careful if something:

  • comes out of the blue or from someone you don’t know
  • sounds out of the ordinary – like you’ve  won the lottery, or you’ve been invited to invest in an ‘amazing’ scheme and keep it a secret
  • asks you to pay for something in advance – especially by bank transfer • asks you for personal information – like your bank details, computer passwords or
    PIN numbers
  • pressures you into buying something or making a decision quickly – a trustworthy company will be happy to wait
  • asks you to phone an expensive number – these start with 070, 084, 087, 090, 091 or 098
