 We do not recommend confronting suspects and prefer you call police and note the description of the suspect, the vehicle, the license plate number and direction of travel.  If you react, and attempt to detain a subject, be sure that someone is calling police, and that you consider your safety and what will you do if the suspect resists.  In this scenario, having two people confront this subject is likely what prevented him from fighting and/or fleeing.  Again, your safety and that of your family is our priority and the loss of personal property is often not worth the risk.   

Area 1

 

459 PC

Theft from Open Garage

STOP CRIME 

 
SUMMER FUN AT THE BEACH

Watch the Water 

 

Los Angeles County Lifeguard, Hermosa Beach

 

Los Angeles County Department of Beaches & Harbors, Hermosa Beach

  

Here's some ocean safety tips:

  • Never turn your back on the ocean!  
  • Swim at beaches with lifeguards. 
  • Check with lifeguards for conditions. 
  • Read and observe posted sign warnings. 
  • Watch children carefully. Hold on to the younger ones. 
  • Watch the surf for at least 15 minutes before entering the water. 
  • Never attempt to swim at the water's edge during big surf. 
  • Never surf or bodyboard in big waves unless you are an expert. 
  • Never rely on your board or leash as a substitute for your swimming ability. 
  • Never swim in big surf if you are not a strong swimmer. 
  • Do not drink alcohol or do drugs and swim.

 

If In Doubt, Just Stay Out!


Everybody loves beaches. There's nothing better than hanging with your friends and family on a beach soaking up the rays and taking a dip.
 
Taking Responsibility
If we are spending time in the company of friends or family, keeping an eye on the security of your possessions is less of a problem. If, however, your activity is a solo excursion you will have to take sole charge for protecting your belongings. Limiting the amount of things that you take with you, to the beach for instance, will mean you have less things to keep your eye on, which will enable you to be less stressed.
 
Preventative Measures
On the beach keeping your possessions dry will be your primary concern. Protecting your mobile phone, ipod or camera from sand damage is also a good idea. Ensuring you only take the essential items you need however, will mean you will be able to relax knowing that your belongings are safe. Therefore do not take too much money with you, and leave your credit cards safely stored in your home, hotel room or hotel safe.
 
Practical Measures
Securing your items in waterproof travel bags is a sensible idea. There are many different types of waterproof travel bags and pouches available on the market, so make sure you choose one that has an effective sealing mechanism. 
 

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.

FIRE CHIEF'S CORNER

Novel Flu H1N1 Update
Local, state, and federal agencies continue to monitor novel flu H1N1.  The latest figures from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for California is 804 infections, with 10,053 nationwide.  Today's Los Angeles Times reported two deaths in California attributed to the novel flu H1N1, one middle-aged female in LA County who had underlying health problems and one middle-aged male in San Bernardino County.  There have been 17 other confirmed deaths from novel flu H1N1 nationwide.  The CDC is expecting additional illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths with this outbreak.

However, it must be noted that this virus appears to be no more virulent than and is transmitted similarly as the seasonal flu.  There is a wide variety of guidance available from the CDC online
The most important protection is hand washing.  Dr. Jonathan Fielding of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health recommends that the duration of hand washing be equivalent to singing 'Happy Birthday' twice.
 
Earthquake Update
Earthquake activity in our area has continued over the past week.  Aftershocks from the May 17th 4.7 magnitude earthquake are ranging in severity from the 1.2 to 2.5 magnitude.  Additional information is available online from the United States Geological Service (USGS) 


Fire Danger
With the focus of the past month on Swine Flu and the May 17th earthquake, I would like to remind everyone that the daily danger to fire and its consequences is ever-present.  Remember to have a smoke detector installed in every room (bedrooms, den, living room, etc) and in the hallway.
 
Almost all fires start small and an effective tool against small fires is available for every household:  a fire extinguisher.  The Hermosa Beach Fire Department and Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch recommends each household have at least two (2) fire extinguishers.

During an Earthquake

Indoor Safety
There are actions you can take, even while an earthquake is happening, that will reduce your chances of being hurt. Lights may be out, and hallways, stairs, and room exits may be blocked by fallen furniture, ceiling tiles, and other debris.

 

Planning for these situations will help you to take action quickly.
 

  • If an earthquake strikes, you may be able to take cover under a heavy desk or table. It can provide you with air space if the building collapses. If you get under a table and it moves, try to move with it.

  • Inner walls or door frames are the least likely to collapse and may also shield against falling objects. If other cover is not available, go to an inner corner of the doorway, away from windows or glass panels.

  •  
    Stay away from glass and hanging objects, and bookcases, china cabinets, or other large furniture that could fall. Watch for falling objects, such as bricks from fireplaces and chimneys, light fixtures, wall hangings, high shelves, and cabinets with doors that could swing open.

  • Grab something to shield your head and face from falling debris and broken glass.


  • If the lights go out, use a battery-operated flashlight. Don't use candles, matches, or lighters during or after the earthquake. If there is a gas leak, an explosion could result.

  •  If you are in the kitchen, quickly turn off the stove and take cover at the first sign of shaking.

 

High-Rise Buildings
Get under a desk and stay away from windows and outside walls. Stay in the building. The electricity may go out, and the sprinkler systems may come on. DO NOT use the elevators.

 

Crowded Indoor Public Places
If you are in a crowded public place, do not rush for the doorways. Others will have the same idea. Move away from display shelves containing objects that may fall. If you can, take cover and grab something to shield your head and face from falling debris and glass.

 

Outdoor Safety
If outdoors, move away from buildings and utility wires. The greatest danger from falling debris is just outside doorways and close to outer walls. Once in the open, stay there until the shaking stops.

 

Automobiles
If you are in a moving automobile, stop as quickly and safely as possible and move over to the shoulder or curb, away from utility poles, overhead wires, and under- or overpasses. Stay in the vehicle, set the parking brake, and turn on the radio for emergency broadcast information. A car may jiggle violently on its springs, but it is a good place to stay until the shaking stops. If you are in a life-threatening situation, you may be able to reach someone with either a cellular or an emergency roadside assistance phone.

 

When you drive on, watch for hazards created by the earthquake, such as breaks in the pavement, downed utility poles and wires, a fallen overpasses and bridges. 

 

 
Thank you CDC for this information.

"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.

IN THE NEWS...

General Motors files for bankruptcy protection

General Motors filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Monday as part of the Obama administration's plan to shrink the automaker to a sustainable size and give a majority ownership stake to the federal government.

GM's bankruptcy filing is the fourth-largest in U.S. history and the largest for an industrial company. The company said it has $172.81 billion in debt and $82.29 billion in assets.

Calif. wants federal government to back its loans

If AIG was too big to fail, how about the world's eighth-largest economy?

In a move with only one modern-day precedent, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Democratic lawmakers are pressing the Obama administration and members of Congress for federal loan guarantees to help the state out of a desperate, multibillion-dollar jam.

As economy worsens, fake check scams spread

1.3 million Americans have fallen for this trick, according to CFA report

 

The CFA survey pinpoints one reason why this scam is so successful. Most people (59 percent of those responding) mistakenly believe that when you deposit a check or money order, your bank confirms that it is good before letting you withdraw the money. Forty percent believed they would not be held responsible if the check or money order turned out to be counterfeit. Wrong!

 

The bottom line


It's not very hard to protect yourself from these fake check scams. In fact, Carmen Christopher, an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission, was able to sum it up in one sentence. "If you get a check that requires you to wire money - don't do it!"

PLANET PALS

 

Weekly Green Tip from Planet Pals.

 

This week's Planet Pals Green Tip is:

 

Did you know that if every household in the US replaced just ONE pack of paper napkins with 100% recycled napkins, we could save ONE MILLION trees

 

Paper towels, toilet paper, and paper napkins are great items to buy in recycled form.   For a list of disposable paper product brands and recycled content amounts, go to http://www.nrdc.org/land/forests/gtissue.asp

 

Another money-saving green option is to replace paper towels and napkins with dish rags and cloth napkins that can be reused.
