Fire Preparation

With temperatures finally dropping, some Californians are breathing a sigh of relief because they managed to survive yet another fire season. However, that’s not always the case. This past year, there were thousands of arcs burned, and hundreds of homes lost to fires.

Once a fire gets too big, there is no controlling it, it just burns whatever gets in its path.

Even though it may feel like we’re done with fires for the season, California is still very dry. On top of wild fires, we also have to be prepared to handle a fire inside our homes. The Red Cross’s website has plenty of information to help prepare your household for a fire.

Before a fire:

  • Form a plan.
  • Install and regularly check your fire alarms.
  • Have two escape routes for every room.
  • Practice your plan.
  • Have a fire extinguisher.

During a Fire:

  • Get out and call 911.
  • Yell “fire!” to alert anyone nearby.
  • When escaping through smoke, get low and go under the smoke.
  • If you become trapped, stay in a room with all windows, and doors shut. Get a wet cloth and place it under the doors if possible.

The best outcome would be to prevent a fire from ever happening. However, we can’t prevent our neighbor’s house from catching fire. All you can do is prepare your home to the best of your abilities.

Take the time to go over your plans with members of your household. It may seem repetitive, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.


Trying to Stay Energized

Trying to Stay Energized

Trying to Stay Energized

Staying awake during the day, or even the week is hard. We’re constantly bustling around, and staying on our toes. Sometimes making it to Wednesday seems to be the biggest challenge of the week, let alone making it to Friday. How can you keep your energy up?

According to Maverick Health, an online health blog, there are several tips that can help you boost through your days and week. These simple steps can be tremendously beneficial.

  • Eat a balanced breakfast
  • Make and eat your own lunch
  • Simple meals throughout the day
  • Drink a lot of water
  • Lower the amount of salts, sugars, and fats in your diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Get enough sleep

These tips may seem simple and that’s because they truly are. Unfortunately, how often do we lose sleep or skip a meal because we’re too busy? Eating a balanced meal, or just eating the right amount of meals is a challenge. Too often fast food is a quick and easy pick me up.

Exercising is another element of staying energized that we often ignore. Sometimes after a long day of work, we don’t want to exercise. The thought behind exercising consistently is that you will build up stamina. However, exercising regularly doesn’t have to consist of two hours at the gym every day.

By going for walks, and even just having a daily 15-minute work out, you may start to see a difference sooner than you think. Keeping up with these key points will help you stay awake and energized during your crazy day to day life.


Earthquake Preparation

Earthquake Preparation

If there were anything California is famous for besides Hollywood, it would probably be earthquakes. Californians are used to the impending doom of earthquakes and knowing how to properly seek shelter in any room.

Even though we know that the “Big One” will hit us any moment, how prepared are we really?

It may seem like a broken record to talk about earthquakes, but the bottom line is they are a part of California. The best source for disaster readiness would be Ready.gov. It’s a government website that was put into place to help people plan for any natural disaster. They break down the process by separating each disaster into three phases: before, during, and after.

Before an earthquake:

  • Have an emergency kit.
  • Form a plan.
  • Prepare your home.
  • Mount large furniture to the walls.
  • Practice drills.

During an earthquake:

  • Get down on your knees.
  • Cover your neck and head with your hands.
  • Crawl to safety away from possible falling debris.
  • Stay where you are until shaking stops.

After an earthquake:

  • Once shaking has stopped assess the damage and possible dangers around you.
  • Remove yourself from dangerous environment if possible.
  • If you’re stuck, stay put and call for help if possible.
  • If you’re near the coast be prepared for tsunamis.
  • Prepare for aftershocks.

No one can be fully prepared for any natural disaster, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. By taking the time today to go over these safety precautions, you could be saving someone’s life. Don’t just wait for the “Big One” to hit, be prepared.


Can a Bounty Hunter Arrest You?

Can a Bounty Hunter Arrest You?

Can a Bounty Hunter Arrest You?

A bounty hunter is someone who tracks down fugitives who have failed to meet the requirements of their bail contract. When a person is out on bail, they have to go to their assigned court dates and make the necessary payments to their bail agent on time. If the person fails to do this, then he will be taken back into custody.

If this person fleas, the bail agent may hire a bounty hunter to track the fugitive down and bring him back into custody.

In the state of California, bounty hunters are licensed individuals who have been hired by a bail agent to track down and re-arrest a bail jumper, a person who has fled their bail.

In order to catch their target, bounty hunters are given special permissions. They do not need a warrant, and can enter the house of the fugitive if they have determined without a doubt that the fugitive is staying there. A bounty hunter does not need to read the fugitive his Miranda Rights while arresting him. The bounty hunter will have the ability to follow and arrest the person in any state.

So yes, a bounty hunter can arrest a person if he has skipped out on his bail. Due to the nature of the fugitive, the bounty hunter will have special permissions to help re-arrest the person. Ultimately, a person should never try to run while out on bail, because a bounty hunter will track him down and bring him back. The person will then be placed back into jail, and will unlikely be able to bail out again.

If a person has accidently missed a court date, this person should contact their bail agent immediately. There may be consequences, depending on the situation, but the bail bond company will likely reinstate the bail bond without re-arresting the person.


Don’t Eat Tide Pods

Don’t Eat Tide Pods

Don’t Eat Tide Pods

It should come as a surprise to no one that there is yet another new “challenge” trending on the internet amongst kids. Unfortunately, like so many other trends before, this one is incredibly dangerous.

This latest challenge is called the Tide Pod Challenge, and the goal is for a person, usually a child, to ingest either a Tide Pod, or the liquid itself.

For many adults, it is easy to see how this is a very bad idea. The liquids in these pods can be incredibly toxic if ingested, which can cause serious problems or even death. Unfortunately, there are many kids and teens out there that are actively attempting this challenge and putting themselves in serious danger.

As with many other dangerous fads that have come and gone over the years, it is important for parents to talk to their kids. Make sure they know that they should never give into peer pressure and that they can always come and talk to you. More importantly, make sure they understand that Tide Pods, and laundry detergent in general, should never be ingested.

Hopefully, most people are smart enough to understand the difference between food and laundry detergent. This horrible new trend is just more proof that a parent needs to monitor what their child does online, and just keep in touch in general.

Staying in touch can be difficult in our fast paced society, but is the most important thing that a parent can do for their child.


Talk to Your Children about Bullying

Talk to Your Children about Bullying

Childhood can be pretty rough at times. All kinds of things are happening, and many times those things can feel bigger and more important than they actually are. As kids learn about themselves, others, and the world around them, they may develop some bad habits. The worst habit they can pick up, is bullying other kids.

Bullying is defined as using force or threat to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others.

It can happen at all ages, but it typically starts in childhood. People like to pick on and mock people who are different in any sort of way. This can be incredibly damaging to a person’s self-esteem. No one likes to be made fun off.

Far too often, you hear on the news about the worst possible outcome for bullying victims, the ones who have had enough and just want an escape. Nobody should have to go through that, parents or child. That is why it is important for a parent to be involved with their child.

A child needs to know that they can always talk to their parent, that there is an adult in their life they can rely on. Let your child know that they can always come and talk to you about anything, and that you will help them solve any problems that they may have. Make sure he or she knows to be kind to others, and to report any bullying they experience to a trusted adult.

No one wants to be bullied, and it is up to all of us to erase it from existence. It will not be easy, but by being there for one another, bullying can be conquered.

Looking for a Discount on a Bail Bond?

Bail Bonds in Huntington Park

While most people do not know much about bail, they do know that bail can be incredibly expensive. In most cases, bail costs several thousands of dollars. However, most people do not have that kind of money lying around to be used on bail. This is why they decide to get a bail bond to pay for the bail.

In the state of California, bail bonds usually cost 10% of the price of the bail. This means, if a bail is set at $25,000, then the bail bond for that will cost $2,500. While this is a huge discount, for many people it may not be enough of one. That is why we offer discounts for qualified clients here at Bail Bonds in Huntington Park.

As long as one of those requirements is met, we can offer the discount to that client.

California: The Sanctuary State

California: The Sanctuary State

California: The Sanctuary State

For those unaware, the start of the new year also marked the start of California being a sanctuary state. The controversial decision to become a sanctuary state was decided on by California politicians at the end of 2017. At the beginning of October, Governor Jerry Brown signed it into law, and the law would take effect on January 1st, 2018.

By becoming a sanctuary state, California has announced itself a safe place for undocumented and illegal immigrants. The new law effectively limits what state and local law enforcement agents can do to assist federal immigration authorities. The law bans enforcement agents, at both the local and state level, from enforcing immigration holds on arrested individuals.

This new law is in direct defiance of President Trump’s calls to focus on deporting millions of undocumented and illegal immigrants. This only led to a greater rift between Washington D.C. and the state of California.

Many California police chiefs opposed the bill in its early stages, and switched to a neutral stance when the bill was later amended. However, many still express concerns for the safety of the general public. They fear this new law will allows certain career criminals, ones who stick to lower levels of crime, will be continually released back onto the street due to the new law.

Only time will tell if California’s decision to become a sanctuary state was a good idea or not.
