Water safety reminder during summer days

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Army Corps of Engineers' Little Rock District is advising park visitors to pay close attention to heat and fire danger warnings this Independence Day.

Knowing and understanding the risks associated with your holiday plans is half the battle in preventing loss of time, money or even a life.

Wildfire danger, burn bans, severe drought, air quality alerts, and heat advisories are all factors to consider when making outdoor plans. Alerts and warnings indicate danger and should not be taken lightly.

Hot Springs fireworks display still a go despite complaints

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- Due to burn bans covering the majority of the state, personal fireworks are not allowed. However, professional displays with the proper permits are still a go.

Hosting a fireworks display during a burn ban is no easy task but county officials say as long as they meet a laundry list of requirements, both local and state, professional displays are allowed.

"I understand the tradition. The 4th of July. I've had fireworks since I was a kid but we've got to bring some common sense to this," says Cliff Jackson says he's worried.

Worried that embers from the traditional fireworks display a few streets over will create a serious problem for residents.

THV Diaper Drive Goal: 100,000 diapers!

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Today's THV partners with the AR Rice Depot again to collect diapers for families in need.

It's hard to even imagine this, as a parent, what if you couldn't provide diapers for your child? What if you had to keep your baby in a soiled diaper longer or clean it out to reuse it? What if you lost your job? What if you lost your home to a disaster? It's a reality for thousands of parents here in Arkansas. Many forced to chose between buying diapers and other necessities.

Rural volunteer firefighters to benefit from SAFER Grant

Rural volunteer firefighters to benefit from SAFER Grant

LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas rural volunteer firefighters have been awarded a $694,000 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Charles Gangluff, program manager of the Arkansas Association of Resource Conservation and Development Councils, worked tirelessly with the Arkansas Rural Fire Protection Program to successfully earn this grant. It took effect May 1, 2012 and will benefit all active rural volunteer firefighters in the state of Arkansas until May 2016.

“These volunteer firefighters have magnificent impacts on their communities,” Gangluff said. “We’re thrilled to have been awarded this grant so we can provide supplemental coverage for firefighters who make countless sacrifices for their neighborhoods.”

Traffic safety campaigns aimed at impaired driving, speeding

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 2, 2012) - Arkansas law enforcement officers will increase sobriety checkpoints and step up patrols to combat both impaired driving and speeding during the next two weeks.
 
'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' is an nine-day enforcement mobilization that began June 29th and will continue through July 7th, immediately followed by a seven-day speeding initiative, 'Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine,' July 8th - 14th. During these periods, officers will intensify efforts to arrest drunk drivers and cite drivers who exceed posted speed limits.
 
"Traffic safety enforcement initiatives such as these are particularly important during high volume traffic periods when more motorists are on the roads for long weekends or extended vacations," said Colonel JR Howard, Director of the Arkansas State Police and the Governor's highway safety representative.
