Swine flu puts South Bay health workers on alert

 

Tracy and I would like to acknowledge the writers of this article at the Daily Breeze for mentioning the efforts by HBNW to stay on top of this health concern by using the newest social media, Twitter. 

 

"The Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch even kept residents abreast of the flu outbreak through Twitter updates and sent e-mail blasts with tips about prevention and symptoms". 

  

THERE IS POWER IN NEIGHBORS

If you have not had an INTRODUCTION Block Meeting, your block is not considered an active block in HBNW.  You may have volunteered to be your block's captain and receive the HBNW E-Mails.  However, we do not know if you are connected to your residents until you have had this meeting.  Please e-mail us today if you have not had it.

 

PLEASE let us know if you have extra Block Meeting PACKETS that we can pick up from you after you have passed them out to the residents that did not show at your Introduction Meeting.  Thanks!

KEEP THIS IN PERSPECTIVE.

 

LIKE ALL OTHER PREPAREDNESS,  DO WHAT MAKES YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FEEL COMFORTABLE.

 

EDUCATION AND RESPECTABLE SOURCES FOR INFORMATION ARE RECOMMENDED.

 

 
STOP CRIME
 

It's Spring again in Hermosa Beach, (although we just got a short blast of Summer with temperatures going over 90 degrees here at the beach), we are now getting ready for our busiest season.  We expect more visitors to Hermosa Beach this year as the economy, violence in Mexico and just this week, concern over a flu outbreak, may have many Americans vacationing closer to home. Of course, our beautiful beach and safe environment prove inviting to all, although it does bring us one problem; traffic and congestion.  If possible, remember to walk to the beach and businesses to help reduce the higher volume.

 

A recent report showed that Hermosa Beach's crime rate dropped over the past year.  We are thankful for this.  This reduction is a combined effort by the more informed and active residents and your police department's officers and staff commitments to make the community as safe as possible.  Although we are not immune, (and we did see some serious crimes in Hermosa Beach), for the most part our community remains very safe.  Opportunistic theft is our most prevalent crime.  To help prevent this, please be sure to lock your car and home doors at night, do not leave your garages open all day and be sure to watch out for each other and report suspicious activity and persons in your neighborhood promptly.  Don't leave valuables, like lap tops and GPS devices in plain view in your car.  Another recommendation is to vary your routine.  Although it is odd to think someone may be watching us, some criminals do just that.  Avoid being predictable, take different routes when walking or bicycling, dine in different restaurants and park in different spaces.  Often times we tend to claim the spot in front of our home and our neighbors respect this, so when your car is gone, we can assume you're not home.  If we can do this, so can the criminals, so be different on occasion just as a small added level of protection.

 

Another way to help keep Hermosa Beach safe is to become a "Volunteer in Policing".  This VIP's have been active in our community and have discovered and reported many crimes, some in progress.  They are responsible for police capturing someone breaking into cars in our parking garage and most recently observed a very intoxicated person entering a car.  They called the police and this drunk driver was off the road.  They also have assisted with traffic and crowd control for events such as the St. Patrick's Day parade and during the Chamber of Commerce 'Fiesta Hermosa" events each year. (By the way; Memorial Day is early this year, May 25th, so our first Fiesta is just around the corner).  We have 10 VIP's right now and will be adding more.  I will look to these volunteers to help our officers in conducting "vacation home checks" for those who report to the police when they leave on vacation.  To be a VIP, you just need to be over 18, have an interesting in serving your community and pass a background investigation.

 

Lastly, and as a reminder, please prepare your home and family for unexpected emergencies, earthquakes or other weather related problems or health scares, by having survival kits ready in your homes and vehicles.  You can find help in preparing these kits on the Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch web site at http://www.saferhermosabeach.com/links-disasterpreparedness-index.htm

 

Please feel free to send me your comments or questions by using the my e-mail address at gsavelli@hermosapolice.org.

 

Respectfully,

 

Greg Savelli

Chief of Police

 

Everyone plays a role in creating and maintaining a safe environment.

 

Report Crime - Don't assume that your neighbors have already reported the crime or that the police already know. Report criminal or suspicious activity each and every time it occurs.
 

 

DIRECT HB Dispatch Number 

310-524-2750

Reasons for calling the non-emergency number include, but are not limited to the following:

 

  • You want to report a nuisance, such as a noise or parking complaint.
  • To report a non-emergency crime, one that did not just occur, and the
    suspect(s) are not in the immediate area.
     
  • You have questions about something suspicious occurring in your
    neighborhood, and you are not sure it is criminal activity.
  • Solicitor just came to your door or are in the neighborhood.
  • Trash diggers.

 
Be alert and observant wherever you are and learn to recognize signs of criminal behavior. Report all crime to the HBPD even if it is only an attempt. Crime cannot be controlled or prevented if it is not reported. By reporting crimes and suspicious activities you can protect yourself and others.

 

If you are in another city in the South Bay, these are their direct dial phone numbers to their PD/FD dispatch. 

 El Segundo Dispatch  310-524-2760

Manhattan Beach Dispatch 310-545-4566

Palos Verdes Dispatch 310-378-5211

Redondo Beach Dispatch 310- 379-5411

Torrance Dispatch 310-320-2611

 

If you are in a city that you do not know or are on the freeways, call 9-1-1 and your call will be routed to the appropriate call center.

 

CODE RED

 

A link to the city web page for residents to go to add their phone number to the city telephone notification/information message system, Code Red. The link provides information about the system, how it will be used and allows residents to add their phone number so they will be in the system for city notifications.

 

The CodeRED system gives city officials the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages.
 
No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, and who use a cellular phone as their primary home phone. 

 

When you receive a call from CODE RED, the number will be displayed on your caller ID as (999)911-9999.

Block Captain Jay Perreault 
 

"Map Your Neighborhood" (MYN) is a program designed to help neighborhoods prepare for disasters.  It is a program that HBNW has adopted and is mandatory that all Block Captains attend and implement on their street.

 

MYN will help you to:

         Learn the "9 Steps to Take Immediately Following a Disaster" to secure your home and to protect your neighborhood. It is hard to think clearly following disaster and these steps will help you to quickly and safely take actions that can minimize damage and protect lives.

  • Identify the Skills and Equipment each neighbor has that would be useful in an effective disaster response. Knowing which neighbors have supplies and skills helps your disaster response be timely, and allows everyone to contribute to the response in a meaningful way.
  • Create a Neighborhood Map identifying the locations of natural gas for quick response if needed.
  • Create a Contact List that helps identify those with specific needs such as elderly, disabled, or children who may be home alone during certain hours of the day.

  Work together as a team to evaluate your neighborhood during the first hour following a disaster and take the necessary actions.

 

Visit MorePrepared online to purchase the MYN bag 

 

 

MYN bag

This kit contains a hard hat (adjustable) and a pair of sturdy leather gloves with safety cuffs (size large) in a roomy drawstring bag.

Add your own personal items such as a pair of sturdy shoes, sweatshirt, flashlight etc. and store under your bed for an emergency. Every member of your household should have one. If an earthquake happens in the middle of the night, you can easily find your shoes and protect yourself from broken glass and falling debris.

Also keep your Map Your Neighborhood FLIP CHART/SHINGLE (obtained after you have a MYN block meeting ~ materials supplied by HBNW) containing contact and other valuable information for use during an actual emergency inside the bag so you can find it quickly when needed.
 

For any kit purchased from More Prepared, including the MYN bag, free shipping to HB residents applies when you enter Coupon Code MYN2008. 

For any other kit, please use Coupon Code HB2007.

FIRE CHIEF'S CORNER

  

We are all well aware of the outbreak of Swine Flu.  The Swine Flu is very similar to the more common influenza A.  Therefore, guarding against it is the same.  The following is from the LA County Health Department website at http://www.lapublichealth.org/ states the following:

 

We do not suggest any changes in what you would normally do to avoid either getting sick yourself or passing illness to others: if you are sick, stay home; if your child is sick, do not send him or her to school; cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze; wash your hands frequently, especially before eating and after using the restroom; and do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with your hands.

 

News footage has shown some people wearing face masks.  However, these face masks provide only limited protection.  The following was taken from a Los Angeles Time news article that can be accessed at http://www.latimes.com/features/health/la-sciw-swine-masks28-2009apr28,0,6159375.story:

 

Most were wearing face masks, which are loose-fitting and designed largely to help stop droplets from spreading from the person wearing the mask. They also protect the wearer's mouth and nose from splashes.  They are not created to protect the wearer from breathing in very small particles.

 

Our firefighters will be using standard protection protocols for responder safety.  We have eye protection and respirator face masks, which do protect firefighters from very small particles.

 

The main emphasis for first responders and the general public is good hygiene, which means frequent hand washing for 15 to 20 seconds at a time.  This is especially important before preparing food, eating, and following use of the bathroom.

 

LIFE SAFETY/OCCUPANCY ENFORCEMENT
 
Courtesy of the HB Fire Chief, David Lantzer 

  
There were no occupant load violations noted over the weekend and no complaints were received.  T-mobile had a promotional event on Pier Plaza Saturday night involving the Lakers game.  There were no problems from this event, either


The inspections are designed to check for overcrowding and to ensure proper exit signs, lights, pathways, doors and door hardware are maintained pursuant to the Fire Code.  

It is the responsibility of the business owner or manager to maintain an accurate occupancy load count at all times that is at or below the approved capacity; and to ensure aisles, exit signs, exit passageways and exit doors are maintained at all times

Pandemic Influenza Plan: Implications for Local Law Enforcement
 
This article describes the responsibilities of law enforcement agencies under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS's) Pandemic Influenza Plan.
At the community level, the HHS plan calls for the closure of public facilities where the interaction of large numbers of employees, students, consumers, and patrons may fuel the spread of the disease. Law enforcement officers will be called upon to enforce such closures.
