STOP CRIME 

What You Can Do

 

Tell your children never to accept rides or gifts from someone they and you don't know.

 

Teach your children to go to the store clerk, security guard, or police officer for help if lost in a mall or store or on the street.

 

Take time to listen carefully to your children's fears and feelings about scary people or places.  Tell them to trust their instincts.

 

Teach your children that if they are being followed to keep walking to a public place, like a library or a store.  Talk to a grown-up at that location.

 

Be certain your children know that no adult should ask them to keep a special secret and to tell you right away if someone does.

 

Make sure children know their address and phone number by heart and the location of their house.

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

FIRE CHIEF'S CORNER

Fire

 

If you haven't done so already, you will soon be bringing in the barbeque season with a sizzle.  I would like to share some safety tips with you so your grilling season will be a safe and tasty one
 
GENERAL SAFETY TIPS
·   Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.
·   The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
·   Keep children and pets away from the grill area.
·   Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
·   Never leave your grill unattended.
 
PROPANE GRILLS
·   Check the gas tank hose for leaks before using it for the first time each year.  Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose.  A propane leak will release bubbles.  If your grill has a gas leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off the gas tank and grill.  If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again.  If the leak does not stop, call the fire department.
·   If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department.  Do not move the grill.
 
CHARCOAL GRILLS
·   There are several ways to get the charcoal ready to use. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start the charcoal using newspaper as a fuel.
·   If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire.
·   Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children and away from heat sources.
·   There are also electric charcoal starters, which do not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord for outdoor use.
·   When you are finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposing in a metal container.
 
Fire departments respond to an average of 7,900 home fires involving grills, hibachis or barbecues each year, including 5,000 outside fires and 2,900 structure fires.  June and July are the peak months for grill fires.  Thirty-three percent (33%) of home grill structure fires start on an exterior balcony or unenclosed porch.  Let's keep Hermosa Beach out of these statistics and have a safe grilling summer.
 
SWINE FLU UPDATE
It appears as though cases of novel flu H1N1 (Swine flu) have been increasing over the past couple of weeks.  This has been attributed to the public putting their guard down now that the flu is no longer on the front pages of newspapers.  Please, always practice good hygiene and basic common sense.  Wash your hands regularly (sing Happy Birthday twice is how long you should wash your hands every time), cover your coughs and sneezes, and stay home if you are sick.

nno B

 

The reason why most people avoid getting to know their neighbors is because everyone is busy, and it isn't always convenient to go knock on someone's door to introduce yourself. However, if you make yourself available, there are always opportunities!

HB SIGNS SECOND MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU) WITH NOAH'S WISH 

 

Noah's Wish 

 

Noah's Wish is a unique animal welfare organization dedicated exclusively to rescuing and sheltering animals in disasters, throughout the United States and Canada.

Mission:
The singular mission of Noah's Wish is to save animals during disasters with our rescue and recovery services and to mitigate the impact of disasters on animals through our educational outreach programs.
 
 

Managing the human component of disaster response and recovery efforts is without a question, challenging. When you add the demands associated with animals, it can greatly increase the complexity. That is why Noah's wish exists. We help emergency management agencies by managing the animals in their community during times of crisis. This allows officials to remain focused on the job they have to do, confident that the animal issues are being handled by experienced professionals. All Noah's Wish services are provided free of cost to the community.

Who Is Noah's Wish?

Noah's Wish came into existence in 2002, not to duplicate existing efforts to help animals during disasters, but to expand on what was already in place. Too often, efforts to help animals during life threatening situations have been gravely inadequate. We recognize that animals need and deserve an organized, consistent and professionally managed national disaster relief program. They will, otherwise, continue to pay for human indifference with their lives. How animals are managed during disasters is to implement well thought out, field tested policies and procedures that are practiced in all disasters. Relief efforts for people are managed this way and we feel they should be for animals too.

Noah's Wish 2 

We are not involved in any other animal welfare issues. It's not that we aren't concerned about all the ways animals are abused or exploited, but there are a multitude of national and local animal welfare organizations who are tackling the issues that adversely affect animals.

  

What are the Strengths of Noah's Wish? 

  • All our resources are directed towards disaster relief for animals. 
  • Available 24/7. There is no maximum time Noah's Wish will remain mobilized, we base every response on the needs of the community and the animals.
  • Response time objectives are 12 hours for local resources and 24 for national.
  • Noah's Wish has adopted the National Incident Management System (NIMS) this allows us to work efficiently and effectively within established protocol. 
  • Core ICS training requirements for our volunteers
  • 2 Day In-Field Training program for our volunteers. Training simulates a disaster environment and prepares volunteers for the emotional and physical challenges of disaster response.
  • A well thought out exit strategy for the end of the disaster.

 "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.

91 ramp still closed after wreck

Ash and metal are the only remains of a tanker truck that crashed through a guard rail, landing on a transition road between the 91 Freeway and the 710 Freeway. The driver of the truck died. The smoke from the fire caused difficult driving conditions and the street closures backed up traffic for hours.

Businesses around Snohomish County join crime watch

 

Merchants feel losses more in the bad economy.

 

 

When it comes to fighting crime, small steps can make a big difference for business owners around the county.

A group similar to a neighborhood crime watch but focusing on businesses wants to bring local company owners and police together to help make communities safer, said Tony Myhre, a board member of Snohomish County Business Watch.

To Flu Experts, 'Pandemic' Confirms the Obvious

It came as no surprise on Thursday when the World Health Organization declared that the swine flu outbreak had become a pandemic.

 

...The announcement does not mean that the illness, which has been mild in most people, has become any worse. The term pandemic reflects only the geographic spread of a new disease, not its severity. Pandemics typically infect about a third of the world in a year or two, and sometimes strike in successive waves.

 

... "The virus can come back in a second wave," Dr. Chan said. "When you're over the first wave, start preparing for the future."

 

... From early reports in Mexico and the United States, scientists have said that H1N1 appears to have roughly the same 0.6 percent death level as the 1957 Asian flu.

 

... Flu levels continue to be high in New York and New England, and especially in Massachusetts, the C.D.C. said.

 

Weak security enables credit card hacks

Every time you swipe your credit card and wait for the transaction to be approved, sensitive data including your name and account number are ferried from store to bank through computer networks, each step a potential opening for hackers.

And while you may take steps to protect yourself against identity theft, an Associated Press investigation has found the banks and other companies that handle your information are not being nearly as cautious as they could.

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.
