    The start of this new year finds Tarrant County in the midst of a rampant flu season. Public Health refers to such conditions as widespread influenza --and it may not have even peaked yet. While anyone can get the flu, those younger than 5 and older than 65 are the most at risk. So it's appropriate to take certain precautions to protect yourself and those you love from the flu. It would be even better if you can make them a habit. TCPH's Facebook page contains lots of helpful hints that are quick reads.

    The recent emergency alarms in Hawaii and in Japan demonstrate that we should all have an idea of what to do should an emergency arise. Our Public Health Preparedness web page offers lots of information that can help you, your family, your community or your business develop emergency plans, should the unthinkable happen.

    I wish the best of health for you and your family this and every year.
