12 ways to Have a Health Holiday Season

Along with all the merry making, the holiday season can bring on a lot of stress. Take steps to prevent illness and to stay safe.  Here are some tips from the CDC to help you out.

Flu Vaccines

The health department had our yearly flu clinics on October 2nd and 10th. If you still need a flu vaccination many local pharmacies offer them with no co-pay.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older. Certain people are at a greater risk for serious complications from the flu. Those at high risk include:
  • Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old
  • People 65 years of age and older
  • Pregnant women and women up to 2 weeks postpartum
  • American Indians and Alaskan Natives
  • People who have medical conditions such as asthma, heart disease and diabetes
Flu vaccination should also be a priority for those persons who live with or care for individuals at higher risk for complications.

Atlantic Health System Free Cancer Screenings

The Morris County Cancer Education & Early Detection Program (NJCEED)
Provides early detection screenings, assistance in planning appointments, follow-up to patients diagnosed through the program and community-based outreach & education.

  • Upcoming screenings for women - December 5, December 8, January 16

  • Upcoming screenings for men - December 12

Please call for more info or to schedule an appointment call 973-971-7971

Emergency Medical Services

IS YOUR HOUSE NUMBER VISIBLE?  Help protect your family members and property by making sure the number on your house is clearly visible from the street.  
VITAL minutes can be wasted trying to locate EMS calls due to buildings not being marked at all, being marked with wrong numbers, or by markings that are not visible from the street.  HELP us HELP you!

  • best location is on a mailbox on both sides and near the front door within the radius of the porch light
  • no less than (3) inches and must be Arabic numerals
  • conspicuously placed on the building facade parallel to the street so that it can be read from the center line of the street in daylight
  • any building more than fifty (50') feet from the street line should display numbers at least five (5") inches in height
  • if the house is not visible from the street,  the number shall be placed near the walk, driveway or entrance to such building and upon a gate, post or fence so as to be easily visible from the center line of the street

On Sunday, November 18th, the Lincoln Park Raiders Junior squad avenged an early season loss by defeating the Kinnelon Colts 37-27 in this year’s Super Bowl. It was an exciting game, with both teams taking turns in the lead. The 4th seeded Raiders played hard and fought to win the game against the number 2 seed Colts. The Raiders had previously beaten the number 1 seeded Pequannock Panthers to secure their spot in the championship game. We are extremely proud of how this team demonstrates good sportsmanship, teamwork, and love for the game. Congratulations Raiders Juniors!
