10 tcHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, May 26, 2016 NEWS FROM STAFF AND NEWS SOURCES Seat belt emphasis patrols on now through June 5 When Asotin High School senior Stanzi Hay con- ducted an observational survey, she found that nearly nine out of every 10 students and adults arrived at school buckled up. What concerned her were those who weren't. These were her friends and classmates, and she didn't want their loved ones to experience a tragic loss simply due to a negligent decision to drive or ride unbuckled. So for the next few weeks, Hay is taking her message statewide and joining the Washington Traffic Safety Commission to encourage drivers across the state to buckle up every time through the Click It or Ticket campaign. State law enforcement officers will join the Click It or Ticket campaign, with extra patrols running from now until June 5. In Spokane County, the city of Airway Heights, East- em Washington University, Pullman and Spokane po- lice departments and the Washington State Patrol will be participating in the extra patrols through the coordi- nation of theSpokane County Target Zero Task Force. These extra patrols are part of Target Zero - striving to end traffic deaths and serious injuries in Wash- ington by 2030. For more information, visit www.

Build campfires where they will not spread, clear a 5-10-foot Circle around the fire of all flammable materials and pitch the tent at least 15 feet away. Keep campfires to a reasonable and manageable size, no larger than 3 feet by 3 feet - do not let them get out of hand. Thoroughly drown the fire, stir it and douse it again with water - do not leave a fire until it is out cold. When barbecuing, inspect your grill by checking all connections and supply hoses. If using gas, make sure the Venturi tubes that deliver gas to the burner are not blocked, and do not overfill the propane tank. Always store tanks outside, in a well-ventilated area. Keep the barbecue 5 - 10 feet away from your house or other flammable material. Never barbecue in enclosed areas as carbon monoxide could result. Do not add fluid to hot coals, the flame can flash back up into the container and explode. Dispose of hot coals properly, douse them with plenty of water and stir them to ensure that the fire is out. Never place them in plastic, paper or wooden containers.
