‘Making News’ with the Cutting Edge

Cutting Edge Collage

The Cutting Edge program keeps growing: in number of participants and in terms of recognition! This is reason to celebrate and it’s a good piece of news!

Starting today, be on the lookout for Cutting Edge Program advertisements on AZFAMILY.com, the Web home of 3 TV and CBS 5.

Cutting Edge Logo

The Cutting Edge logo, Web site, and Public Service announcements (30 and 60 second ads) are being featured on the popular Web site, to recognize those establishments that implement principles and practices of Active Managerial Control. 

As A+ Food Safety Establishments, this is a good time for Cutting Edge participants to proudly display-in a conspicuous manner throughout their establishment- Cutting Edge logos, posters, and certificates.

Do you know why the Cutting Edge is the A+ Food Safety Program? Do you know how it benefits businesses and customers?

Don’t miss the Cutting Edge campaign on AZFAMILY.com

Diarrhea and Swimming Don’t Mix

Healthy Swim (A)

This week (May 22–28, 2017), right before Memorial Day weekend, marks the thirteenth annual Healthy and Safe Swimming Week (HSSW).

Swimming is a fun, active and healthy activity. However, in the past two decades there has been an increase in the number of Recreational Water Illness (RWI) outbreaks associated with swimming pools, water parks, and spas.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Healthy Swimming program offers information and resources to raise awareness about RWIs and how to prevent them by practicing "Healthy Swimming" behaviors.

The theme of this year’s HSSW is “Diarrhea and Swimming Don’t Mix.” Diarrheal incidents (e.g., Cryptosporidium-related contamination events) in recreational water can lead to outbreaks.

Keep your friends and family healthy by staying out of recreational water if you are experiencing, or have recently experienced, diarrhea.

For more and information and healthy tips, follow our Environmental Services Department's social media outlets and visit: http://www.esd.maricopa.gov/2658/Healthy-Swimming
