City Launches Water Safety Initiative

City Launches Water Safety Initiative

 

The city of Henderson Fire Department, in partnership with the Henderson Professional Firefighters, Parks and Recreation, and the American Red Cross, will take their “Be Water Safe” drowning prevention message directly to kids in a summer education series offered throughout Henderson.

Every parent who has experienced a child drowning thought it could never happen to them. Yet drowning is a leading cause of accidental death for young children in Southern Nevada. The goal of “Be Water Safe” is to persuade kids and parents alike to take ownership of the role they play in preventing accidental drowning.

A mock drowning incident will be the key feature of the “Be Water Safe” drowning prevention series. The audience will see what they believe is a drowning victim fall into a pool, and watch city of Henderson lifeguards and firefighters respond with life-saving measures. The July 1 event will feature a water rescue to highlight water safety while boating.

It was the best of times (because Italian food has had a twenty year Renaissance), it was the worst of times (because it’s now ubiquitous), it was the age of wisdom (Mario Batali), it was the age of foolishness (Macaroni Grill’s authenticity),

Lawsuit Alleges Man Took Bogus Insurance Policy on Dead Actor

HENDERSON, Nev. - While Henderson Police have named no suspects in the death of Josh Dufort, his friends believe the murder trail is becoming more obvious.

In November of last year, the aspiring actor was found dead on the side of a Henderson road with blunt force trauma to the head. Nearly two months later - according to a lawsuit obtained by 8 News NOW - Don Juan Futrell, an associate of Dufort, tried to collect $1 million as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy in Dufort's name.

"I firmly believe that -- especially if you are that conniving and yet that sloppy -- that it's only a matter of time before you do go down," said Dufort's friend Patrick Oglesby. "There are a lot of things that just don't add up, and the fact that this thing has become concrete as far as being fake just proves it."
