DMV to Nevadans: Stay Away Monday

 

If you have a November deadline for business at the DMV, department officials don’t want to see you Monday.

Department officials are asking motorists to use alternative services this coming Monday or to delay visiting an office until later in the week.

“Happy holidays from our family to yours,” DMV Director Bruce Breslow said. “Enjoy your time more by staying away from the DMV on Monday.”

The Monday after Thanksgiving is traditionally the department’s busiest day of the year, leading some of the staff to call it “Black Monday.”  Wait times can easily double or triple, to two hours or longer. Motorists can always check current wait times on the department’s website or iPhone application.

Henderson Strong in Cardiac Arrest Survival Rate

Henderson Strong in Cardiac Arrest Survival Rate

 

A recent study promoted today by city officials indicates that Henderson residents more than double their chance of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest when treated by the Henderson Fire Department.

In instances of cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation, the Henderson Fire Department achieved a 50 percent survival rate, with 29 percent of those patients going home neurologically intact. Nationally, the survival rate for this type of cardiac arrest is 21 percent.

“Our Fire Department is treating patients who essentially have no pulse and helping them return to their families, their community, and their careers,” Mayor Andy Hafen said.

Fire Chief Steve Goble attributes this success to the Fire Department’s team-based approach to cardiac arrest response.
