    (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- Parents were not home as smoke detectors woke children; 2 escaped, one perished in the fire

    Royal Oak - The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is on a mission to minimize the risk of dryer fires across the nation. Dryer vent cleaning is the number one way to prevent dryer fires and increase dryer efficiency. Most dryer fires are caused by failure to clean dryer vent systems. Poorly installed dryer vent systems can also be hazardous.

    Over 17,000 dryer fires occur annually, causing deaths, injuries and nearly $200 Million in property damages. Dryer fires are most devastating as they burn very hot and spread quickly to devour a home during the time it takes to run out and pick up a few things at the grocery store.

    The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard was saddened to read about one dryer fire that occurred during the short transition time when children were alone in the home. The fire consumed a mobile home where a 5-year old girl was trapped inside and died. Neighbors tried to enter the home and save the child but the smoke and flames were too intense. The three children were sleeping when smoke detectors work them. Two children, ages 8 and 11 escaped and ran to their grandmother's trailer to call 911.

    The Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard (http://www.thedryerventcleaningwizard.com/) specializes in dryer vent service while educating consumers about dryer fire prevention and energy savings. Dryer vent cleaning could have prevented this tragic fire from occurring. Dryer lint is highly combustible and adds fuel to a fire to allow it to spread rapidly.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- Dryer vent cleaners all over the nation are on a mission to promote dryer vent cleaning to prevent dryer fires

    Livonia MI - Dryer vent cleaners provide an important home service that needs to be taken more seriously. Dryer vent cleaning may have prevented a dryer fire in Livonia that caused about $20,000 in damage. No one was home when the fire started and spread through the wall of the laundry room into the kitchen. Thanks to an alert neighbor who called 911, the home was not a total loss.

    Over 17,000 house fires resulting in deaths, injuries and millions of dollars in damages occur each year as a result of clogged dryer vent systems. Dryer vent cleaners with the Wizard join efforts with the NFPA to promote awareness as they educate their customers with valuable tips and information on dryer fire prevention.

    Dryer vent cleaners are often heard "venting" about the devastation of dryer fires and how easily they can be prevented. Most dryer fires are caused by clogged dryer vents. Lint is highly flammable; when it accumulates in dryer ducts it becomes a fire hazard. The Wizard urges everyone have a dryer vent inspection and service regularly.

    Dryer vent cleaners with the Wizard advise their customers that the most common warning sign of lint build-up is when dryers start taking longer to dry each load. Other warnings include the top of the dryer is hot to touch when running, excess heat and humidity in the laundry room, clothes hot to touch after a dry cycle and clothes come out with a moldy or smoky smell.

    Service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard (http://dryerventcleaners.blogspot.com/) want their customers to understand that they should not leave the house or go to sleep when the dryer is running. "Treat your dryer like a child and never leave it unattended!" say dryer vent cleaners with the Wizard.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- Cleaning dryer vent systems can improve indoor air quality for a healthier environment

    Ann Arbor MI - Dryer vent lint cleaning is the best solution when clothes dryers begin to work less efficiently. It is not normal for an older dryer to take several cycles to properly dry clothes. Many people think this is the case when their dryers are not working as well as they did when they were new. They think that as long as they have been cleaning the lint screen regularly the increased drying times must be due to appliance age and normal wear.

    Dryer Vent Wizard wants consumers to be aware that age and wear is rarely the cause of longer drying times. This is usually a sign of lint build-up in the dryer vent system. Other warning signs include no lint on the lint screen after a cycle, excess lint on clothes, clothes come out with a moldy smell or are very hot after a cycle. Dryer vent lint cleaning takes care of several dryer exhaust issues.

    Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventlintcleaning.com/) specializes in all dryer vent services while educating consumers on dryer fire prevention through proper dryer vent installation and maintenance. Dryer vent lint cleaning is the best way to maintain dryer safety and efficiency.

    Dryer vent lint cleaning promotes air flow to remove heat and moisture from laundry and release it from the home. Clogged dryer vents cause the dryer to run hotter and longer, eventually damaging the dryer and leading to a fire hazard. In addition, poor venting results in excess moisture in the air, causing mold and mildew damage and mold related illness to sensitive residents. Gas dryers require proper ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

    The U.S. Consumer Product Safety commission estimates that over 17,000 fires are associated with clothes dryers each year, causing deaths, injuries and nearly $200 Million in property damages. Dryer Vent Wizard is working to decrease these numbers by increasing public awareness of the dangers of clogged dryer vent systems.

    Dryer Vent Wizard is the largest chain of dryer vent service providers in the nation with over 60 franchise locations in the US. Visit http://www.dryerventwizard.com to learn more.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- Dryer exhaust vent cleaning opens the airway so dryers can work more safely and efficiently

    Farmington Hills MI -The Wizard warns people to clean dryer exhaust vents regularly to eliminate a fire hazard. Proper dryer maintenance will also improve dryer efficiency and lengthen the life the appliance. Dryer vent cleaning can save consumers up to $300 per year in energy costs.

    Dryer Vent Wizard is a national franchise company specializing in dryer vent installation, repair and cleaning services while educating customers about how clean dryer exhaust vents promote safety and efficiency.

    Customers appreciate the Wizard for his concern and thank him for offering safety tips and valuable information about dryer maintenance. Many have already discussed clean dryer exhaust vents with their friends and neighbors which helps the Wizard with his mission to minimize the frequency of dryer fires in his neighborhood.

    The U. S. Fire Administration reports over 17,000 dryer fires annually, with most of them caused by failure to clean dryer exhaust vents. About 80% of Americans have clothes dryers; however, most people are unaware of the need for annual dryer vent cleaning to keep the dryer running properly and prevent dryer fires. Dryer Vent Wizard (http://cleandryerexhaustvents.blogspot.com/) will do a complete dryer vent inspection and correct problems that could be hazardous.

    Poorly installed dryer vent systems can also be a fire hazard. The newer, energy efficient models can cause more lint to build up in the dryer vent system. Second story laundry rooms and larger homes require longer dryer vent runs which cause dryers to work harder. In many cases, the dryer vent itself is considered a fire hazard because it doesn't meet current building code requirements.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- Plastic or vinyl dryer duct material is another source of fuel to feed the flames when dryer lint is ignited by a spark from inside the dryer

    Warren MI - Professional dryer vent installation is recommended for anyone who owns a clothes dryer. The vinyl or plastic dryer ducts that homeowners typically install do not meet today's safety standards. Dryer Vent Wizard and dryer manufacturers recommend solid metal dryer ducts.

    When a lab in New York performed a test on dryer vent systems they proved this point. They put an open flame to corrugated and smooth aluminum dryer ducts and neither one caught fire; but the vinyl dryer duct ignited within 12 seconds.

    Service technicians with Dryer Vent Wizard (https://www.facebook.com/DryerVentWizard?ref=ts) are concerned with how many people use the vinyl or plastic dryer duct material. These systems are cheap and very easy for a homeowner to install. The problem with them is that they sag and allow lint to build up in the low spots, or they can get crushed behind the dryer, restrict air flow. Professional dryer vent installation by the Wizard ensures clothes dryers operate safely and efficiently.

    Over 17,000 dryer related fires happen each year with clogged dryer vent systems being the number one cause. Poorly installed dryer vent systems are also a fire hazard.

    Dryer Vent Wizard only installs rigid metal dryer vent systems in accordance with city, state and manufacturer's codes. Their certified technicians provide professional dryer vent installation and maintenance for homes and businesses with clothes dryers. Visit http://www.dryerventwizard.com to learn more.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- The Wizard explains how the dryer lint trap is an important safety feature and energy saver

    Newton MA - According to the local Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, good dryer maintenance is necessary for safety as well as energy savings. Keeping the dryer vent clean and green will save money in the laundry room while improving dryer performance, extending longevity, and most important, preventing a dryer fire.

    Jerry McCarthy, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard of Boston combines an important home service with education to promote dryer safety and energy savings. His customers appreciate his dedication to excellence as he provides good dryer maintenance to help save energy while promoting safety.

    Over 17,000 dryer fires occur each year with failure to clean dryer vents being the leading cause. Poorly installed dryer vent systems can also be hazardous. The Wizard (http://dryerventcleaningbostonmass.blogspot.com/) is especially concerned with people using the vinyl, plastic or flexible foil dryer ducts. Another concern is in older homes where the dryer vent leads into the crawlspace under the home.

    McCarthy explains to his customers that the clothes dryer is one of the most likely appliances to cause a fire and one of the biggest energy users in the home. The good news is that all dryers, old and new, can be operated safely and efficiently with good dryer maintenance.

    Most new dryer models have a moisture sensor that will automatically turn the dryer off when clothes are dry. This prevents over drying which can damage clothing and waste energy. Of course, the dryer is only as efficient as the user, so even older models without the auto-dry sensor can be operated more efficiently by adapting the following tips:

    Dry full loads or reduce drying time for partial loads. Operating a dryer for an extra 15 minutes per load can cause damage to clothing and waste energy.

    Clean the lint trap after every load. Dryers work by moving heated air through wet laundry, evaporating and then venting the vapor outdoors. If the lint screen is full, airflow is reduced and clothes will take longer to dry.

    Have a complete dryer vent inspection performed by a qualified dryer vent service technician to ensure it is properly installed according to current safety standards.

    Schedule dryer vent cleaning service periodically to remove lint accumulation in the dryer duct and dryer cabinet to eliminate a fire hazard and improve dryer performance.

    Good dryer maintenance is vital to dryer safety and efficiency. Dryer vent cleaning is the best way to prevent dryer fires and save energy. A poorly vented clothes dryer can cost an additional $300 per year to operate. Poorly vented gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat.

    Melamedia Webinar Details Effects of DOMA Decisions in HIPAA Compliance

    Alexandria, VA (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- The HIPAA privacy rules governing patient access to their medical records provide some protection for healthcare organizations as they address the recent Supreme Court decisions addressing same-sex marriage under federal law.

    Many federal and state courts interpret HIPAA as creating an orderly system for releasing patient information, and not only requirements for protecting health information. In the context of the recent DOMA decisions, hospitals should review their policies and procedures for the release of information to family members, next of kin and visitors. Hospital policies on information release should also be consistent with Medicare requirements on visitation by same sex spouses and the rights of "support persons."

    As important, it provides healthcare organizations with a useful strategy to avoid getting caught in the middle of the societal debate over same-sex marriage. The HHS Office for Civil Rights considers the failure of healthcare entities to provide access to their records as one of the three leading causes of patient complaints.

    Consequently, HIPAA covered entities and the contractors must review their HIPAA privacy and patient rights requirements to ensure they avoid OCR investigations stemming from patient complaints in the wake of the Supreme Court decisions and the application of Medicare standards on visitation.
    To help covered entities and business associates navigate this terrain, Melamedia, LLC, publisher of Health Information Privacy/Security Alert is sponsoring a 60-minute webinar:

    The Effects of the Supreme Court Same-Sex Marriage Decisions On Patient Rights, and HIPAA and HITECH Compliance
    Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2013
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EASTERN

    Participants will be briefed on:

    - How the Supreme Court's recent decisions affects patient rights under HIPAA;
    - The DOMA decisions effect on HIPAA's definition of a "personal representative;"
    - The need to reinforce workforce training for HIPAA compliance;
    - Issues that arise when same sex married couples live in states that do not recognize these unions;
    - Avoiding unauthorized disclosures and breaches under HIPAA and the HITECH Act while meeting HIPAA's requirements for patient access to PHI; and much, much more.

    JACA Architects embraces updated ADA guidelines for Healthcare Design

    NORTH QUINCY, MA, (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- JACA Architects (www.jacaarchitects.com), one of New England's premier healthcare architectural firms, has successfully embraced and implemented all of the Americans with Disabilities Acts (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design into its medical design.

    "We strive to successfully follow the ADA guidelines with every project completed," said Anthony Cavallaro, President of JACA Architects. He noted, "Now that the new guidelines have been in effect for a while, it has given us in the industry a chance to evaluate the changes and their impact on design."
    These guidelines, which represent a dramatic change from the original 1991 ADA Standards were updated in 2010 and took effect in 2012. There have been significant changes in the standards as relating to healthcare design.

    He said, "There was great collaboration and input in the industry to come up with the first changes since the 1990s. In general terms, healthcare clients will see greater emphasis on spatial and operational consistencies throughout buildings and facilities." He noted, "The larger challenge is designing in today's era of reduced budgets, which is where architects need to be both careful and creative."

    JACA Architects offers comprehensive services to ensure that healthcare, senior living and science & technology client's facilities are compliant with state and federal accessibility guidelines. The process involves setting priorities and planning goals for upgrading existing environments and incorporating accessible features and principles into new facilities. The review determines how and when to apply ADA and MAAB requirements to the specific needs of a facility alongside the most current applications of DPH requirements.

    The Compliance review assesses the facility's current status in terms of renovations or new construction work. It is determined which version of the state and federal regulations apply to the facility. The Patient Experience review looks at the journey of clients through the facility and common obstacles they can encounter. The Staff Experience review uses the same criteria as the Patient Experience and includes areas that personnel use exclusively. The Public Experience review is relevant to all levels of users and assesses the ways that the facility and organization communicate via internet, phone and printed media.

    As needs continue to evolve and project types become even more specialized, it is crucial that the requirements for accessibility are always part of the design and operations of facilities. JACA Architects partners with clients to ensure that all users and staff have the best possible experience.

    About JACA Architects
    JACA Architects is a 25-employee healthcare architectural firm founded in 1991 by Anthony Cavallaro, AIA, who serves as the company's president. JACA is uniquely positioned in the architectural market in that there are very few firms specializing in the healthcare/medical design field.

    For the past twenty years, Healthcare and Life Science planning and design have been the firm's only focus. JACA was one of the first firms in the area to incorporate the use of Revit as part of its Building Information Modeling (BIM) toolkit. BIM is a model-based technology linked to a database of project information. This information is parametrically coordinated and can be extracted for specifications, fabrication, project scheduling, facilities management, energy analysis, engineering and construction, LEED, and more.

    With clients including BIDMC, Lahey Health, South Coast Hospital and others, JACA is a steadfast source for medical design and consultation, which positions it uniquely in the marketplace. Offices are located at 9 Billings Road, North Quincy, MA. For additional information, please visit www.jacaarchitects.com or call, (617) 769-6300.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 30, 2013 -- Dial An Exchange (DAE), the world's largest, privately owned Exchange Company, assists more than 450,000 members globally with their timeshare holiday exchange needs.
    This week DAE revealed the top five most popular Australian holiday destinations according to their Pacific members.
    #5 - Port Macquarie
    Port Macquarie is located halfway between the Gold Coast and Sydney, at the mouth of the Hastings River. A temperate climate can be experienced year-round in this coastal township, which features beautiful beaches, splendid national parks, a plethora of attractions, and a bounty of restaurants, cafes, and shopping.
    Activities to be enjoyed in Port Macquarie include swimming at any of 14 beaches, fishing at Port Macquarie port, and exploring historical sites such as Timbertown. While there, one may also want to consider touring the Hastings River wine region, starting at the Sherwood Wine Embassy, which, in addition to providing tastings, also offers maps and brochures for most of the area's wineries.
    #4 - Coffs Harbour
    Situated nearly halfway between Brisbane and Sydney lies Coffs Harbour, a gorgeous beachside city well known for its relaxed atmosphere, breathtaking coast, and multitude of attractions and events offered year-round. These include sporting events like the Coffs Harbour Gold Cup Race and food festivals like the Woolgoolga Curry Festival. In September, Coffs Harbour hosts its week-long International Buskers and Comedy Festival, featuring over 120 shows in 15 different venues.
    And of course, the city has tons of family-friendly activities to enjoy at any time, including water sports, adventure, restaurants and cafes, the Pet Porpoise Pool Oceanarium, which has daily seal and dolphin shows, the Butterfly House, the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve, and the Big Banana, one of the oldest and most-visited theme parks in Australia, with children's rides, an ice-skating rink, a waterslide, lakes, and shops.
    #3 - Mornington Peninsula
    Located just one hour southeast of Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula combines European coastal life with Australian appeal, offering galleries, cafes and spas in seaside villages, breathtaking beaches, gorgeous gardens, the hot springs and boutique wineries. Golf aficionados will enjoy taking a swing at any one Mornington Peninsula's 19 golf courses.
    #2 - Inland Victoria
    While most don't associate Australia with great skiing, the fact remains that Inland Victoria has a bigger area of ski fields than Switzerland. Most runs are located below the tree line, providing the unique experience of skiing between eucalyptus trees. The Victorian ski towns border the massive Alpine National Park, another must-see. Inland Victoria is also excellent for sporting activities that don't require snow, such as bush walking, horseback riding and trout fishing.
    #1 - Gold Coast
    This modern, glittering city of high-rises offers spectacular beaches, including the world-famous "Surfers Paradise." As Australia's sixth largest city, the second largest in the Queensland state, the Gold Coast offers a never-ending array of things to see and do, including theme parks, designer boutiques, spa retreats, topnotch golf courses, esteemed eateries, lively bars and nightclubs, and a series of monthly events and festivals held throughout the year.
    As Australia's surfing capital, it's no surprise to see surf champions in action at the Gold Coast, in the world's best surf competition, the Quicksilver & Roxy Pro. Swimming is also big in Australia, and one can witness the best in Gold Coast's Coolangatta Classic ocean swim.
    Natural attractions in the Gold Coast include whale watching, island hopping and exploring any one of the area's national parks, which include Lamington, Border Ranges, Main Range, Nightcap, and Mt. Warning National Park.
