Logo MDHHSAs part of Heat Stroke Prevention Day, The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is reminding parents and caregivers to never leave children alone in vehicles. Nationwide, more than 138 children died from heatstroke between 2013 and 2016, and all of these deaths are preventable.

It doesn’t have to be the middle of the summer for a child to get overheated. The temperatures inside a car can increase 20 degrees in as little as ten minutes, and because a child’s body heats up three to five times faster than adult’s, they are more susceptible to heatstroke. Temperatures inside a car can double the temperature outside.

Logo Michigan DNRStop dumping your unwanted fish into Michigan waters - That's the message from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, which each year receives numerous reports of unique species showing up in waterbodies throughout the state. This is due to pet and aquarium owners releasing species into the wild when they no longer want to care for them. Dumping fish or other aquatic animals into public waterbodies is illegal.

If you catch an unusual fish or other aquatic species, keep it and preserve it on ice. If that is not possible, then take photos of the fish. Do not return it to the water.
