    first_img Community News 5 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it The Fire Department reminds everyone to take precautions with elevated temperatures this week.  Lack of rain this year means area vegetation and brush is extremely dry. Pasadena Fire Department Officials urge extra care when using landscaping equipment as sparks from such equipment or vehicles can ignite brush fires. Remember to discard cigarettes properly; use extra caution with barbecues and be vigilant around swimming pools.Pasadena residents and businesses with any power emergencies should call Pasadena Water and Power Department at (626) 744-4673. For water-related emergencies, call (626) 744-4138.

Remain calm while on the phone. Be prepared to give operators your name and location and an accurate description of the nature of your call.Other recommended precautions include:• If possible, stay indoors in an air conditioned environment, especially the young and the elderly. If your home or apartment is not air conditioned, consider going to an enclosed shopping mall, a public library or a designated cooling center.• Remember to check on your neighbors, family and friends—especially the elderly—to make sure they are OK. Take them extra water or a cool beverage.• Never leave anyone unattended in closed vehicles, including pets!

Do not wait until you are thirsty.• Avoid, reduce unnecessary exertion or vigorous exercise, whether outside or in a non-air conditioned building, especially during peak heat hours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.• Seek shady spots; wear a hat, preferably with a wide brim and use plenty of sunscreen!Pasadena Public LibraryLocal area public libraries offer an enjoyable, air-conditioned respite from the heat and are, of course, a great place to catch up on your reading too!

  • USS Constitution Virtual Tour Soon on Google Maps

    first_img View post tag: Tour [mappress]Press Release, September 23, 2014; Image: US Navy USS Constitution worked with Google Maps to record a virtual tour of ‘Old Ironsides’ this morning aboard the ship. USS Constitution Virtual Tour Soon on Google Maps Authorities View post tag: maps View post tag: americas View post tag: virtual View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navalcenter_img View post tag: soon September 23, 2014 Google Maps photographed the ship to create a virtual 360-degree experience of Constitution in preparation for the ship’s scheduled dry-dock period in March 2015.“People around the country and across the world will have the opportunity to experience Constitution online,” said Cmdr. Sean Kearns, Constitution’s 73rd commanding officer, “This capability will be especially important while most areas of the ship are inaccessible during her restoration.”The 216-year-old warship will be added to the list of historical landmarks that Google Maps has available for online tours. Among the list are the Taj Mahal, The Louvre Museum, underwater reefs, and regular street views from around the world. To date, Google Maps has been able to cover 57 different countries.The Constitution, however, is considered a “street view special collect,” said Curt Fennell, a Google Maps Systems Administrator, and U.S. Marine Corps veteran.“We like to have as much information as possible, it’s our mission. The USS Constitution is a national treasure. Since she will be unavailable for a few years, we want to make her available for viewers from all over,” Fennell said.‘Old Ironsides’ will be moving to dry-dock in 2015, and the restoration is scheduled to last three years.The virtual tour will help Constitution and history enthusiasts view and experience the ship as she presently looks at her berth in Charlestown Navy Yard before preparations begin to de-rig and offload the ship in the upcoming months.USS Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, actively defended sea lanes against global threats from 1797 to 1855. Now a featured destination on Boston’s Freedom Trail, Constitution and her crew of U.S. Navy Sailors offer community outreach and education about the ship’s history and the importance of naval seapower to more than 500,000 visitors each year.
