POTASSIUM IODIDE (KI) DISTRIBUTION LOCATIONS

Lake County General Health District (LCGHD) Health Commissioner Ron Graham announces plans for the distribution of potassium iodide (KI) to residents living or working within 10 miles of the Perry Nuclear Power Plant.

“KI is not a substitute for emergency procedures, such as evacuation and in-place sheltering during a nuclear emergency,” Mr. Graham said. “It is, however, one more protective measure we can provide to help safeguard Lake County residents.” Although KI will be available at care centers that would open as a result of a release from the power plant, it must be taken as soon as public health officials tell you to do so in order to be effective.

Potassium iodide is a non-prescription medication that if taken within a specific time frame, can protect the thyroid from radioactive iodine, one of the contaminants that could be released in a nuclear accident or similar event. Exposure to radioactive iodine can increase the risk of thyroid cancer.

KI tablets can be picked up at the following pharmacies starting January 14, 2015 through February 16, 2015 during regular pharmacy hours of operation:

Scheduled KI distribution locations:

CVS Pharmacy 9040 Mentor Ave.
Mentor, Ohio 44060 440-255-9159

Giant Eagle Pharmacy 6079 Andrews Rd.
Mentor on the Lake, Ohio 44060 440-306-0011

Great Lakes Pharmacy 9500 Mentor Ave.
Mentor, Ohio 44060 440-352-2500

K-Mart Pharmacy 9200 Mentor Ave.
Mentor Ave. 440-974-7314

Marc’s Pharmacy

Mentor, Ohio 44060 440-951-1721

Target Pharmacy 9669 Mentor Ave.
Mentor, Ohio 44060 440-210-5054

Beginning February 16, 2015, Lake County residents may pick up KI at LCGHD from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Health District is located at One Victoria Square Suite 125 in Painesville, Ohio 44077.

Businesses should call LCGHD at 440-350-2543 to place an order for KI for their employees. After their order has been filled, businesses will then pick up KI at LCGHD during business hours.

This year’s display far exceeds what has been done in the past and City Council would like to invite everyone to join in the festivities.

We’ll be joined by the big guy himself who will arrive on a horse drawn carriage to hand out candy canes to the kids. Also, enjoy choral arrangements by students from Mentor Schools as well as hot cocoa, and free cookies donated by Eat’N’Park! Come join in the fun!

Refreshments will be served in the beautifully decorated lobby immediately after the ceremony.

We hope to see you there!

Mentor Police 2nd Annual Fill-a-Cruiser Food Drive Update

fillacruiserMentor Police held their second annual Fill-a-Cruiser Food Drive on Sunday, November 23, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at Giant Eagle located at 7960 Plaza Boulevard in Mentor.

Generous shoppers helped completely fill two Mentor Cruisers with non-perishable food items. The donated food was taken to St. Bede’s Food Pantry and St. Mary’s Food Pantry in the City of Mentor to help benefit those in need.

Mentor Police also collected $1,623.00 in cash donations which will be used to support Mentor’s Kops-N-Kids program. The donations amounted to more than double what was raised last year.

The Kops-N-Kids program is a volunteer program which started in 1983 which provides holiday gifts for kids in need. The program accepts outside donations and holds annual golf outing to raise the funds for the program.

Families are identified with the help of the Mentor School System, Mentor’s Victim’s Assistance program and police officers themselves.
