Local police, fire officials get `911' simulator

A `911' simulator has been donated to Capital City Fire/Rescue and the Juneau Police Department by State Farm Insurance.

The simulator helps teach `911' safety by having participants answer questions from a recorded operator. The device can also add a phone line so a person may ask questions instead of the simulated operator.

The company developed the simulator and has donated over 300 of the devices nationwide. The Juneau ceremony occurred at the end of April.

Asthma talk scheduled

Dr. Charles Jackson, a Seattle doctor, will talk to the Asthma and Allergy Support Group on at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Bartlett Regional Hospital cafeteria.

The topic for the talk is ``The Importance of Controlling Nasal Allergy and Sinusitis for the Management of Asthma.'' A social hour will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

This event is free to the public. For more information call Cathy at 789-7936 or Judy at 789-0317.

Teacher sponsors sought

The Gastineau Humane Society is seeking sponsors for the Adopt-A-Teacher program. Through this program children become members of the KIND Club - Kids In Nature's Defense - intended to teach youths respect for self, others, the Earth and kindness to animals. A total of 79 local classrooms have been sponsored this year.

The Adopt-A-Teacher program was created by the National Association for Humane and Environmental Education (NAHEE), and has been distributed throughout the United States and several other countries since 1983. A teacher or youth leader can be adopted for $25 per year.

For more information contact the Gastineau Humane Society at 7705 Glacier Highway or call 789-0260.
