Sarasota Memorial's Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery, Dr. Jeffrey Sell and his wife, Chris, an operating room RN, are true heroes!  Recently while having dinner at a downtown Sarasota restaurant, they heard a loud crash.  Two men had tumbled through a storefront window and sustained serious injuries requiring immediate attention. Thanks to the Sell’s swift actions, both men were stabilized until paramedics arrived. Thank you, Dr. & Mrs. Sell, for being such an asset to our organization and our community!

The National Hurricane Center reports the area of low pressure off the Florida coast has a high chance of forming into a tropical cyclone over the next five days. The following tips can help protect your family and home:
*Create a Family Emergency Plan: copies of important documents including insurance policies, deed to house or rental agreement, evacuation information, shelter-in-place plan, important phone numbers, home inventory.
*Build a Storm Kit: items you will need for at least 72 hours after a storm - water, nonperishable food, batteries, flashlights, battery-powered NOAA weather radio, prescription medications, supplies for children, the elderly or pets.
*Build a Home Insurance Inventory: descriptions/photographs of your property are invaluable should you need to file an insurance claim. 
*Hurricane Proof Landscaping: replace landscaping rocks with mulch, trim tree limbs hanging over roof, etc.
*Clean Gutters: if clear and in good condition, gutters direct rainfall away from your home and prevent flooding.
*Strengthen Soffits: properly installed soffits should keep water out of your home.
*Enhance Roof Sheathing Attachment: proper application of the right caulk can increase wind uplift resistance of roof sheathing by as much as three times.

* Do not apply sunscreen or insect repellent that is not labeled specifically for use on animals.
* Always keep matches and lighter fluid out of reach.
* Keep pets on their normal diet.
* Do not put glow jewelry on pets, or allow them to play with it. 
* Keep citronella candles, insect coils and oil products out of reach.
* Never use fireworks around pets! 
* Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets.
