Three of our Underwood Hills families practiced their home fire drills this past Sunday with the help of the firefighters from Station 23. They prepared their exit strategies in case of fire and refined them with suggestions from the experts. It was a great learning experience!
Thanks to our wonderful firefighters!!!!
If you would like to have the Underwood Hills Emergency Response Operation and the firefighters help you with your home fire drill, contact Cynthia Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Citizen Science trained and certified volunteers with Adopt-a-stream conduct monthly chemical and bacterial, and quarterly macro invertebrate testing of the stream in Underwood Hills Park, a tributary of Peachtree Creek and one of thousands of sites throughout the country administered by the EPA.
The latest chemical and bacterial testing revealed elevated levels of e-coli (~20,000cfu/100mL). Safe levels are <300cfu
This kind of outbreak is usually associated with animal feces polluting the stream, either from pets, faulty septic systems or sewerage leaks.
Please always pick up after your pets in the park, and even in your own backyard.
Persons with open wounds should avoid contact with the water, and all park users should be sure to wash after contact, especially before eating.
If you'd like to be involved in local citizen science contact UHNA>
