De Pere Fall Leaf Collection

Just a reminder: The Fall curbside collection of leaves is well underway and will continue through November 10, 2017.  The City will be making multiple rounds of collection during this time.  Leaves, grass clippings, lawn rakings, and garden waste may be placed curbside for collection.  Please do not place any of these items in the street as they clog the storm sewer and also send chemicals into the storm sewer system.  They should be placed in the terrace area (area between the sidewalk and the street).

Thank you!

When exposed to cold temperatures, your body begins to lose heat faster than it can be produced.  Prolonged exposure to cold will eventually use up your body’s stored energy.  The result is hypothermia, or abnormally low body temperature.  Hypothermia is most likely at very cold temperatures, but it can occur even at cool temperatures (above 40°F) if a person becomes chilled from rain, sweat, or submersion in cold water.

Warning signs of hypothermia:
Adults:  shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, slurred speech and drowsiness.
Infants:  bright red, cold skin, very low energy.

What to Do:
If you notice any of these signs, take the person’s temperature.  If it is below 95°, the situation is an emergency – get medical attention immediately.
If medical care is not available, begin warming the person, as follows:
  • Get the victim into a warm room or shelter.
  • If the victim has on any wet clothing, remove it.
  • Warm the center of the body first – chest, neck, head, and groin - using an electric blanket, if available.  Or use skin-to-skin contact under loose, dry layers of blankets, clothing, towels, or sheets.
  • Warm beverages can help increase the body temperature, but do not give alcoholic beverages.  Do not try to give beverages to an unconscious person.
  • After body temperatures have increased, keep the person dry and wrapped in a warm blanket, including the head and neck. 
  • Get medical attention as soon as possible.
A person with severe hypothermia may be unconscious and may not seem to have a pulse or to be breathing.  In this case, handle them gently, and get emergency assistance immediately.  Even if the person appears dead, CPR should be provided.  CPR should continue while the person is being warmed, until they respond or medical aid becomes available. 

Remember before you or your children step out into the cold air, remember the simple acronym COLD – cover, overexertion, layers, and dry:
  • Cover:  Wear a hat or other protective covering to prevent body heat from escaping your head, face and neck.
  • Overexertion:  Avoid activities that would cause you to sweat a lot.
  • Layers:  Wear loose-fitting, layered, lightweight clothing.
  • Dry:  Stay as dry as possible.

The mission of the City of De Pere Health Department is to protect and promote public health across the lifespan through: education, policy development and valued services.  Public health offers a variety of services focusing on the community, family and individual.
From the Police Department:
  1. Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.
  2. Have kids use glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
  3. Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, remind them to stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.
  4. Trick-or-treating hours are 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., so drivers be especially alert for kids during those hours.
  5. When selecting a costume make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.  Since masks can sometimes obstruct a child’s vision, try non-toxic face paint and makeup whenever possible.

The City of De Pere allows residents to keep honey bees and mason bees after obtaining a permit through the city health department.   No more than two hives are allowed per property parcel.  The initial application fee is $30, renewal application fee is $10.  Permit renewals are April 1st - June 30th.   More information about beekeeping and application materials can be obtained at the City of De Pere Health Department located in City Hall.
