  • Dealing with car accidents

    If you read one thing today, make it this article! Here is your step-by-step guide to dealing with car accidents. From bumper bashings to 10 car pile-ups on the highway, car accidents are an everyday occurrence on South African roads. If the worst happened and you were involved in a car accident would you know what to do at the accident scene? Keep reading to learn what to do. Step 1: Stop and call for help Stop, switch on your hazards to warn other vehicles and climb out of your car if it is safe to do so. Call an ambulance and the police if passengers, drivers or pedestrians are injured. Note: You are required by law to stop your vehicle if you are involved in an accident and commuters and pedestrians are injured or killed or property is damaged. Failing to stop is considered a criminal offence. You can also be criminally charged for failing to help someone who has been hurt in an accident you are involved in, even if the accident was not your fault. Remember, however, that as much as you want to help injured people you should not administer first aid unless you are qualified to do so. Step 2: Clear the road  Move any cars that are obstructing the flow of traffic, but be sure to mark their position on the road first with chalk or spray paint if available, or to photograph the scene before the cars are moved. Note: If a person or animal has been injured in the accident do not interfere with the evidence or move any vehicles unless those vehicles are obstructing the traffic completely. Step 3: Assess the damage For insurance, purposes take photos of the accident from as many different angles as possible. Take close-up photos of any damage to your car and any other cars involved. Step 4: Questions and answers Take down the following information from all other drivers involved in the accident as well as from people who witnessed the accident: Full names and surnames ID numbers Home, cell and business phone numbers Physical addresses E-mail addresses Vehicle registration Description of the vehicles (make, model and colour) Names and contact details of the police officials, paramedics, and tow truck drivers Your location: street name and suburb The time of the accident Road conditions and visibility Remember to also take note of what happened immediately before…

  • Important Covid-19 Information

    Please take note of this Important Covid-19 Information! Our customers are our family! We will ensure to do everything we can to help you and your loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic! Here are important helpline numbers to save and have on hand while under national lockdown! Domestic Violence – 0800 150 150 Child Abuse – 0800 055 555 Lifeline – 0861 322 322 Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover. But it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following: Wash your hands frequently Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands. Maintain social distancing Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick. Practice respiratory hygiene Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately. Why? Droplets spread the virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19. If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority. Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections….

  • Mental Health Month

    October is known worldwide as Mental Health Month. “Some of the greatest battles will be fought within the silent chambers of your own soul.” – Ezra Taft Benson Ezra speaks truly, the worst battles we can fight are those within ourselves, against voices that persist and habits that were once healthy and now don’t serve to help us at all. Mental Health problems are a silent enemy, one that those around us can neither see nor hear, but that those who suffer from it can scarcely avoid. Where do you hide from your own mind? Mental Health Month seeks to raise awareness of these conditions and what you can do to help those who suffer from them. History Of Mental Health Month The story of mental health care is a long one, reaching far back into history where men and women battled with what were believed to be literally invisible demons that lived in their heads. Prayer and exorcisms, witch doctors and shamans alike were called on to aid those who struggled with these conditions. Later it was determined that rather than some supernatural element, it was clear that those suffering from these disorders were, in fact, dealing with medical conditions that could be treated, though no one quite knew how in those days. It wasn’t until on Clifford W. Beers attempted suicide after his first battle with the (then unknown) bipolar disorder and the death of his brother that someone finally started championing those who suffered from mental health disorders. His experience in those institutions at the time showed him that something had to be done to help others with similar issues, and began a long quest to improve the mental health profession. Mental Health Month was established to champion this quest, and to help raise awareness of all the conditions and the millions of people who battle them every month. How To Celebrate Mental Health Month Mental Health Month is best celebrated by educating yourself on the conditions that those with mental disorders live with. A little understanding can go a long way towards helping these individuals live an open and meaningful life, and feel welcome and loved among their friends and families. You can also volunteer at local clinics, and aid the entire community by providing much-needed assistance to these organizations. If nothing else, a simple donation to one of the organizations who work to champion the…
