Prescription medications such as pain relievers, central nervous system (CNS) depressants (tranquilizers and sedatives), and stimulants are highly beneficial treatments for a variety of health conditions. Pain relievers enable individuals with chronic pain to lead productive lives; tranquilizers can reduce anxiety and help patients with sleep disorders; and stimulants help people with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) focus their attention. Most people who take prescription medications use them responsibly. But when abused—that is, taken by someone other than the patient for whom the medication was prescribed, or taken in a manner or dosage other than what was prescribed—prescription medications can produce serious adverse health effects, including addiction.
Patients, health care professionals, and pharmacists all have roles in preventing the abuse of and addiction to prescription medications. For example, patients should follow the directions for use carefully; learn what effects and side effects the medication could have; and inform their doctor/pharmacist whether they are taking other medications [including over-the-counter (OTC) medications or health supplements], since these could potentially interact with the prescribed medication. The patient should read all information provided by the pharmacist. Physicians and other health care providers should screen for past or current substance abuse in the patient during routine examination, including asking questions about what other medications the patient is taking and why. Providers should note any rapid increases in the amount of a medication needed or frequent requests for refills before the quantity prescribed should have been finished, as these may be indicators of abuse.
Similarly, some OTC medications, such as cough and cold medicines containing dextromethorphan, have beneficial effects when taken as recommended; but they can also be abused and lead to serious adverse health consequences. Parents should be aware of the potential for abuse of these medications, especially when consumed in large quantities, which should signal concern and the possible need for intervention.

Sign Up for Town Emergency Notifications

Emergency ServicesSwift911 Emergency Notification

The Swift911 Emergency Notification System provides the town with a mechanism to rapidly deliver a recorded notification via telephone, email or text message to targeted homes and businesses in the event that an emergency takes place within the town's jurisdiction. Such situations may include water main breaks, flooding, terrorist threats, hazardous materials emergencies, weather emergencies or natural disasters. Non-emergency contact may be made in the event of town Water Department pipe flushing, as temporary pressure variations and discoloration may occur.

Contact information in the Swift911 notification database is based on phone directories and other publicly available sources. If your telephone number is not published or if you wish to be contacted by alternate means (cell phone, email or text message), you can update your contact information using the form below. There are no fees for registration and those who do not wish to participate in this service may remove their number from the notification database at anytime by clicking "Remove" in the lower left corner of the form. Any calls you receive will have the Caller ID of "Town of Hempstead." The town's emergency notification system is NOT intended to inform residents of problems/emergencies related to other governmental jurisdictions (ie. independent water districts/companies, independent sanitary districts, village government operations, fire districts, county government, etc.).

For each entry (regardless if it is to add, change or remove a point of contact), you must enter your complete address, including house number, street name and suffix, town and zip code. Only include those telephone numbers (home, cell, business), text/SMS number and service provider and e-mail address at which you wish to be contacted should an emergency notification take place. The town will attempt to contact you at each of the contacts provided in the event of an emergency notification.

Don't Let Your Child Become a Victim

New York State Assemblyman Ed Ra offers valuable information:

Dear Neighbor,

Our children’s lives are at stake.
It is unthinkable that in communities like ours it is necessary to protect our children from heroin and prescription drug abuse. Unfortunately, this is reality.
This guide and medicine tracker is designed to be taped in your medicine cabinet to use as a tool to keep a close watch on your prescription drugs. I have produced this to help you to protect your loved ones. It is one of many steps I am taking, including changing laws in Albany, to address the difficulties that parents are facing.

Together, we can maintain safer communities and protect our families from addiction and potentially life-threatening overdoses of these very dangerous drugs.

Senate Passes Three Major Vehicle Safety Bills

State Senator Kemp Hannon

Three new pieces of legislation were passed by the Senate which deal with motor vehicle safety and the unsafe operation of a vehicle.

We passed three new bills to crack down on wrong way and reckless drivers, added tougher DUI legislation, and legislation to curb illegal high-speed racing. We need to let those who might engage in unsafe and illegal activities that there will be severe consequences for their actions.

“Michelle and Jordan’s Law,” (S.2938) will increase penalties for unlawful high-speed car racing. The legislation is named for a 17-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy whose deaths were caused by crashes stemming from suspected drag racing at excessive speeds. The bill will create stiffer penalties which should help prevent high-speed vehicle racing and raise awareness of the risks posed by this dangerous activity.

A second bill, S.3452, will create felony charges for wrong-way and other reckless drivers. This legislation is in response to a significant number of arrests and car crashes caused by individuals who drove under the influence and drove the wrong way on our streets and highways. The bill will give law enforcement and prosecutors a valuable tool to make our roads safer.

Finally, “Abbagail’s Law” (S.164), named for a young girl tragically killed when a ‘supervising driver’ was under the influence of alcohol, was passed by the Senate. This legislation will create the crime of aggravated supervising a driver while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and would be a Class E felony, and closes a loophole in the law by holding supervising drivers accountable for their irresponsible actions. A supervising driver is an adult who is not actually driving, but is accompanying a young, inexperienced driver.

All too often we read or see a news story of the death of a young person in a tragic accident. In most or all of those cases, the deaths could have been prevented. These bills will not only send a strong message that irresponsible and potentially deadly behavior will not be tolerated, but those who are guilty of such acts will be severely punished.

All three of these bills have been sent to the Assembly.

Eagle Scout

Franklin Square resident and Boy Scout Nick Ferreiro, of Troop 485, received the Eagle Scout Award — the highest honor of the Boy Scouts — on Jan. 8 at 3 p.m., at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in New Hyde Park.

Ferreiro, a student at Syracuse University, with an interest in broadcasting and sports reporting, began his Scout career as a member of Cub Scout Pack 485, based in Franklin Square, earning his Arrow of Light and then graduating to Troop 485 in February 2004. He then earned 35 merit badges as a Boy Scout, which includes 21 required Eagle Scout badges, and held several leadership positions within the troop, including Senior Patrol Leader. He is currently Troop 485’s Assistant Scoutmaster.

Ferreiro’s Eagle Scout project included a revamping and reorganization of his church youth group’s sports equipment. He also wrote programs on how to use all of the equipment and games that could be played.

Among various projects in 2011, Ferreiro participated with fellow Scouts on a clean-up project for the Tanglewood Preserve Science Center in Rockville Centre. Troop 485, which has been located in Franklin Square for nearly 40 years and is hosted by the Wesley United Methodist Church, includes members from Franklin Square and West Hempstead.
