Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25!
Posted on May 19th, 2016 Comments (0)
Sully District Station Hosts ‘Trash Talks’ Initiative to Encourage Drivers to Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25!
 
Speeding in residential neighborhoods is a common problem throughout Fairfax County and the sustained effort to reduce neighborhood speeding began in 2014 with the, “Slow Down: You Live Here, We Live Here” campaign. Working in conjunction with this program, the Sully District Station has partnered with American Disposal Services and the Virginia Run Community to try a new approach to bringing greater awareness to the problem of speeding in neighborhoods.

On Monday, May 23, 2016, officers from the Sully District Station, employees of American Disposal Services and residents of the Virginia Run Community will present “Trash Talks,” an initiative intended to increase speeding awareness for the safety of our children. Volunteers will be affixing “Keep Kids Alive Drive 25” stickers (see attached photo) to residential trash bins to help educate and remind drivers to slow down for our kids’ sake! The stickers will be rolled to the streets twice a week, providing a regular reminder to the community to slow down.

In addition, trash collection workers and trucks are an integral part of our communities. What many do not realize is their profession is listed as the fifth most dangerous job in the country with about 40 percent of trash collection worker injuries and fatalities occurring due to transportation-related incidents. We are grateful for the partnership with American Disposal Services and their commitment to the safety and security of the community they serve as well as that of their employees.

It is the hope of the Fairfax County Police Department that this weekly reminder will prompt residents to slow down to help keep our children safe as well as maintain our community as an enjoyable place to live, work, and play!

You are invited to join us on this new adventure! We will be kicking off the initiative on Monday, May 23 at 10 a.m. at the Virginia Run Community Center, 15355 Wetherburn Court, Centreville, Virginia. Come check out this new and exciting program, your community could be next!
 
We hope to see you there!
 
Have a GREAT day!

Information on Lyme Disease
Posted on May 16th, 2016 Comments (0)
 
Dear Friends, 
 
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, and many of us know first-hand the devastating effects of Lyme disease in our community. Please take a moment to learn how to limit exposure to ticks and the chance of contracting Lyme Disease. 
 
In 2011 I co-sponsored HJR 643, which designates every May as "Lyme Disease Awareness Month" in Virginia. As a result of this increased awareness and other publicity, the Commonwealth has stepped up and is continuing our battle against Lyme Disease.  
 
Unfortunately, Lyme Disease continues to negatively affect citizens of the Commonwealth. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reported cases in Virginia increased by 29% between 2011 and 2014. In fact, in 2014, Virginia had the 8th highest number of reported cases of Lyme Disease in the nation.
 
Adding to the risks of Lyme is the fact that traditional antibody testing for the disease, which is the most popular method, has the potential to produce false negatives. According to LymeDisease.org, antibody testing can miss over half of cases. To better protect Virginians, I co-sponsored HB 1933 the Lyme Disease Testing Information Disclosure Act of 2013, requiring health care providers to notify anyone tested for Lyme of the risk of false negatives. 
 
For more information on how best to prevent contracting Lyme Disease, please visit the CDC's Lyme Disease Prevention site, or the Virginia Department of Health's Lyme Disease Fact Sheet. If you think that you may have contracted Lyme Disease, please do not hesitate to seek medical assistance. The longer the disease is allowed to go unchecked, the greater the repercussions will be on a patients body and well-being.
 
As the weather gets warmer, the potential to be exposed to this debilitating disease will increase. I encourage you to take a moment to familiarize yourself with the information listed on these sites.
 
If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at (703) 815-1201 or DelTHugo@house.virginia.gov.
 
Regards,
 
Tim 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                    
 
Roundabout Complete!

Braddock-Pleasant Valley Roundabout Construction Completed Today
 
I'm pleased to tell you that Fort Meyer Contracting and VDOT have confirmed that construction on the $5.8 million Braddock-Pleasant Valley Roundabout officially ended today.  The roundabout is now fully operational. I appreciate all of your patience during construction. 
 
I'd like to congratulate the project team for finishing this project on schedule and keeping to the aggressive timeline that was announced last year despite the massive snowstorm this winter. I'd also like to thank my friend and our former Delegate, David Ramadan, who fought hard in Richmond to obtain state funding to match Loudoun's contribution to this project.  
 
There are several other individuals that have worked closely with me over the years to make this project a reality. I can't mention everyone involved here, but I would like to especially thank Sunil Taori and Farid Bigdeli with VDOT, Terrie Laycock, who just retired from the Loudoun County Department of Transportation, and the former Chairman of the Loudoun Board of Supervisors, Scott York.  I also appreciate the endorsement of this project by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, especially former Sully District Supervisor Mike Frey.
 
As you travel through the roundabout, you'll notice the brick apron, which has a 100-foot diameter. That apron is there to assist trucks and larger traffic in navigating the circle.  I know it will take some time for drivers to get used to using the roundabout. To help with that process, I have included this link to educational resources on how to use roundabouts: 
 
Over the next few years, you will continue to see construction on roads around the Dulles South area as we work to improve our infrastructure and reduce congestion.  As a reminder, you can track progress on these projects at www.loudoun.gov/underconstruction.

Zika Virus Prevention in Virginia
Posted on Apr 18th, 2016 Comments (0)
Information on Mosquitoes.
 
Mosquitoes and Zika infection in Virginia:
 
•People in Virginia can acquire Zika through the bite of an infected mosquito, during travel to an area where the virus is circulating among mosquitoes.
•The infection is transmitted primarily by mosquitoes. It is most commonly transmitted by the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegyptii), but the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) can also transmit it.
•Both of these mosquito species circulate in Virginia, with Asian tiger mosquitoes being the most common nuisance mosquito here. Therefore, there is a risk of Zika virus being imported into Virginia and being transmitted by local mosquitoes during mosquito season. At this time of year neither of these two mosquito species are active, so infection by mosquito bite is not possible.
 
Mosquito control in Virginia:
•When the mosquito season begins in May, there is potential for our local Yellow fever mosquitoes and Asian tiger mosquitoes to become infected with the Zika virus by biting infected persons who have returned from areas of Zika activity.
•These two mosquito species are different from most other mosquito species in Virginia because they fly and bite during daylight hours and will enter homes through any open door or window and bite indoors. These two species are also different from other species because they lay their eggs exclusively in containers of water (i.e. containers made of plastic, ceramic, glass, metal, concrete, wood or stone) and they do not lay their eggs in “ground” bodies of water such as puddles, flooded ditches, ponds or streams.
•Control and prevention for these two mosquito species requires tactics that are different than what is normally used for other mosquito species. For example, the treating neighborhoods with truck-mounted foggers and larviciding puddles and stagnant water in ditches, swamps, or streams will not control either of these two mosquito species. Mosquito control and prevention requires:
•Thorough inspection of residential and commercial properties to find and eliminate, dump, or treat the containers of water that these mosquito species lay their eggs in. Effective treatment of a neighborhood often requires a property to property effort.
•Spraying of aerosol fogs into the foliage of shrubs, hedges, ivy and other vegetation or structures where these mosquitoes sit.
•Spraying of residual insecticide barriers on the foliage of shrubs, hedges, ivy, other low vegetation or walls on properties where these mosquitoes are abundant.
•Maintaining screens on all home/building windows and doors to prevent the entry of these mosquitoes into the home.
 
Guidance on mosquito control measures can be found in the following CDC document:
Interim CDC Recommendations for Zika Vector Control in the Continental United States
 
See CDC’s Division of Vector-borne diseases website for more information on mosquito-borne illnesses.
 
See the Virginia Mosquito Control Association’s website for information about statewide mosquito control efforts.
