Lake Patrol not only assists our Maricopa County Regional Parks on the water but also the land. This Saturday, please come out and give them a hand at The National Public Lands Day Lake Pleasant Clean up! The summer is over and they are left with a lot of trash in the park due to littering. Larger trash can get into the water and cause safety hazards for boaters. Free vehicle park entry for those who sign up and help for four hours. The clean up is from 7am to 11am. After 11am you are free to enjoy the park. Come to the main contact station of Lake Pleasant Regional Park for directions to the check-in table. Please sign up at

We know soccer games can be very exciting. If you're watching the #soccer match between the U.S. and Mexico tonight, make sure you watch out for toppling televisions. Low TV stands are safer than higher ones. Every year, over 17,000 children are treated in U.S. emergency departments for injuries from televisions falling over. Researchers say that children under the age of five are at the greatest risk. #TipTuesday
