On the Morning News for April 23: NotifyNow, Laugh for a Cure, brain injuries and first aid for mental health.

How will Saskatoon get word out when there are emergencies? Jessica sits down with Morgan Hackl to find out

If the power goes out like it did on Monday, and websites aren’t responding either, how’s one to know what’s going on?

Many Saskatonians coped by communicating through social media to stay in the loop, but with the new NotifyNow system, it seems to be an almost instantaneous update!

A big NotifyNow test is happening at the beginning of May, so if this is something you’re interested in, sign up for it now!

Kevin looks how Laughter for a Cure will entertain and raise money for a charity

The world likes to be entertained. Heck, when I write my blog every day, I positively love having music on. Sometimes it’s Shania Twain. Sometimes it’s Eminem.

So how does one entertain oneself and raise money for charity?

I love what Laugh for a Cure has been able to do since their inception 4 years past. This past year wasn’t quite so good as the second year of Laugh for a Cure, but this forecaster is saying that this time around, things will be better than ever!

Kevin learns more about stress in the workplace

It seems like such a common thing – people are stressed in the workplace all the time.

We know for certain that it can play a part in decreasing productivity, but there’s much more to it than that. The Canadian Mental Health Association is aiming to open that up a ways, and they’ve brought in Sam Corbett of the Sheepdogs to help.

It promises to be a fun night at the Roxy, but one that also serves as a reminder: stress happens, and there are ways to overcome it.

What’s Brain Blitz? Jessica gets the answer and learns more about brain injuries

Now that we’re creeping on into summer, don’t forget to wear your helmet for anything that requires one!! It’s one of the easiest ways to save the noggin and prevent brain injury and damage.

Something that drives me crazy is when I see a family bike riding and the kids are wearing helmets, but the parents aren’t!! We all need to set an example for the younger generations so we can help lower the stats for brain injuries in Saskatchewan.

Tickets are still available for the 2014 Brain Blitz Gala on May 3rd, which helps those with brain injuries.
