  STOP CRIME 

 

Time to keep an eye out for students! 

School Crossing 

Be familiar with school zones. Get in the habit of noticing where school zones and crosswalks are on routes that you normally take. Accidents, including pedestrian accidents, are far more likely to occur locally on routes with which drivers are more familiar and comfortable.

 

Stop for school bus lights. Always stop for school buses with flashing red lights. Drivers approaching the bus must come to a full stop for the duration that the red lights are on. Some school buses have flashing yellow lights also, which means that drivers may proceed with extreme caution. Bus drivers often engage the flashing yellow lights before the flashing red lights, signaling that they are about to stop.

 

Obey crossing guards. School crossing guards are given police training and the same authority as local traffic police in most areas, so disobeying a crossing guard could get you in some serious trouble. Remember that driving on major streets where crossing guards and crosswalks are observed is safer than taking "short-cut" side streets where children may be unattended.

 

Anticipate the worst. The speed and distance away of oncoming cars is more difficult for young children to judge. Always anticipate the chance that a small child may run in front of you by slowing down and preparing to brake.

 

Be careful around parked vehicles. Be especially careful in areas with parked vehicles on the side of the road. Children waiting to cross may be especially difficult to see behind parked sport-utility vehicles.
Turn your headlights on. Drive with headlights on in areas with children and pedestrians. The AAA says that the use of headlights can reduce pedestrian accidents by about 25 percent.

 

Avoid using cell phones when driving. Cell phones are a known distraction. Never use hand-held cell phones while driving, and never use hands-free cell phones while driving in school zones or areas with children. The same goes for activities that distract the driver, such as changing CDs, looking at notes and reading maps.

 

Avoid reversing. Try to avoid reversing your vehicle in areas with children. It's more difficult to see short children and attend to your car's blind spots while reversing.

 

Don't speed. Remember that the speed limit in most school zones during school times or when children are present is 25 miles per hour. Bad weather, or areas with limited visibility, will require a lower speed. Your visibility to pedestrians, your ability to see them and your stopping distance all may be greatly impaired by weather or road conditions, so follow common sense and slow down.

 

Don't honk at pedestrians or bicyclists. Honking at a child, whether on foot or on a bicycle, is generally not a good idea. The noise could possibly cause the startled child to trip or fall and be in a dangerous position for other approaching traffic.

TIPS FOR THE STUDENT:

Bike

  • Always wear a bicycle helmet, no matter how short or long the ride.
  • Ride on the right, in the same direction as auto traffic.
  • Use appropriate hand signals.
  • Respect traffic lights and stop signs.
  • Wear bright color clothing to increase visibility.
  • Know the "rules of the road."

Walking to School

  • Make sure your child's walk to a school is a safe route that has well-trained adult crossing guards at every intersection.
  • Be realistic about your child's pedestrian skills. Because small children are impulsive and less cautious around traffic, carefully consider whether or not your child is ready to walk to school without adult supervision.
  • If your child is young or is walking to new school, walk with them the first week to make sure they know the route and can do it safely.
  • Bright colored clothing will make your child more visible to drivers.
  • In neighborhoods with higher levels of traffic, consider starting a "walking school bus," in which an adult accompanies a group of neighborhood children walking to school


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.
  • Unusual foot traffic.
  • People you don't recognize walking your block with no seemingly specific direction or purpose.
  • Parked, occupied vehicles at unusual hours.
  • Abandoned vehicles.
  • Business transactions conducted from vehicles.
  • Unfamiliar people peering into parked vehicles.
  • Person removing vehicle accessories.

 
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

FIRE CHIEF LANTZER'S CORNER

HBFD

 
Several fires are burning in Southern California.  The largest of these is the Station Fire, which is approaching 125,000 acres (at the time of this writing). Last Saturday afternoon, Hermosa Beach was asked to provide an engine for a strike team from the South Bay area to respond to the Station Fire.  While en route to the fire our engine suffered mechanical problems and had to be towed back to the fire station.
 
Very early Sunday morning, our department received another request to provide an engine and four personnel for a second South Bay strike team to respond to the Oak Glen III Fire near Yucaipa.  Those personnel are still assigned to that fire, and should be for a couple more days, depending on how quickly containment can be achieved.  It is currently 40% contained.  Our personnel have been involved in structure protection.
 
Hermosa Beach Fire Department personnel join the chorus of condolences to the families of Los Angeles County Fire Captain Tedmund Hall of San Bernardino County and Firefighter Specialist Arnaldo "Arnie" Quinones of Palmdale who lost their lives battling the Station Fire.  They were killed in a crash when their vehicle was overrun by the fast-moving flames of the Station Fire and rolled down a mountain side.  Captain Hall was a 26-year veteran and Firefighter Quinones had been a county firefighter for eight years.
 
While we have been very fortunate so far, please monitor the air quality in our area because changes in the weather may force some smoke into our region.

"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.

With back to school, comes the concern of the H1N1 virus spreading through children.  Please go through this section with your kids.

 

wash hands 

 

"Did you wash your hands?"

How many times did you hear that today? Probably a lot. But why are adults so hung up on hand washing? Why are they so in love with lather?

Washing your hands is the best way to stop germs from spreading. Think about all of the things that you touched today - from the telephone to the toilet. Maybe you blew your nose in a tissue and then went outside to dig around the dirt. Whatever you did today, you came into contact with germs. It's easy for a germ on your hand to end up in your mouth. Think about how many foods you eat with your hands.

You can't wear rubber gloves all day long, but you can wash your hands so those germs don't get a chance to make you or someone else sick. When germs go down the drain, they can't make anyone sick.

So when are the best times to wash your hands?

  • before eating or touching food (like if you're helping cook or bake, for example)
  • after using the bathroom
  • after blowing your nose or coughing
  • after touching pets or other animals
  • after playing outside
  • before and after visiting a sick relative or friend

Now you have the when and the why of hand washing. But did you know that a lot of people don't know how to get their paws perfectly clean? The next time you're told to step up to the sink and scrub up, remember these handy hints:

1.  Use warm water (not cold or hot) when you wash your hands.

2.  Use whatever soap you like. Some soaps come in cool shapes and colors or smell nice, but whatever kind that gets you scrubbing is the kind you should use. Antibacterial soaps are OK to use, but regular soap works fine. 

3.  Work up some lather on both sides of your hands, your wrists, and between your fingers. Don't forget to wash around your nails. This is one place germs like to hide. Wash for about 10 to 15 seconds - about how long it takes to sing "Happy Birthday." (Sing it quickly two times or just once if you go nice and slow.)

4.  Rinse and dry well with a clean towel

When Disaster Strikes, it's too late to prepare.

IN THE NEWS...


Return of swine flu: What's ahead for Americans?
 
The hopeful news: Even with no vaccine, winter is ending in the Southern Hemisphere without as much havoc as doctors had feared, a heavy season that started early but not an overwhelming one. The strain that doctors call the 2009 H1N1 flu isn't any deadlier than typical winter flu so far. Most people recover without treatment; many become only mildly ill.
 
Importantly, careful genetic tracking shows no sign yet that the virus is mutating into a harsher strain.
 
... Wash your hands, sneeze into your elbow, stay home so you don't spread illness when you're sick.

Lessons from Mexico for next wave of swine flu

 

So what worked? Public awareness; rapid diagnosis, treatment and quarantine; and a near-compulsive outbreak of hand-washing.

 

What didn't? Travel bans, school closures, overuse of antibiotics and those flimsy paper face masks that tangled hair, slid down necks and hid the beautiful smiles of this gargantuan city.

Mexico's new drug use law worries US police

 

Tens of thousands of American college students flock to Cancun and Acapulco each year to party at beachside discos offering wet T-shirt contests and all-you-can-drink deals.
"Now they will go because they can get drugs," said San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne. "For a country that has experienced thousands of deaths from warring drug cartels for many years, it defies logic why they would pass a law that will clearly encourage drug use."

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.

SIGN UP FOR CODE RED

 

ALERT LA County Logo

 

May be used to register your cell phone number, Voice over IP phone number, and e-mail address with the Alert LA County Emergency Mass Notification System.

Listed and unlisted land line telephone numbers are already included in the database and do not need to be registered.

Los Angeles County has implemented an emergency mass notification system that will be used to contact County residents and businesses via recorded phone messages, text messages or e-mail messages in case of emergency.  The system, called Alert LA County, will be used by the County's Emergency Operations Center to notify residents and businesses of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuations.  The system utilizes the telephone companies' 911 database and is able to contact land-line telephone numbers, whether listed or unlisted.  If the call is picked up by an answering machine, the system will leave a recorded message.  If the number called is busy or does not answer, the system will redial the number in an attempt to deliver the message.  The system is also TTY/TDD compatible.

Because the Alert LA County system uses the 911 database, only land-line numbers are automatically included in the system.  If you have a cellular or Voice over IP number and would like to be notified on that device, or if you would like an e-mail notification, you must register those telephone numbers and/or e-mail address by completing the registration form below.

Because the Alert LA County system uses geomaping, each telephone number and/or e-mail address can only be associated with one street address in the system.

Each telephone number and e-mail address registered below will be contacted only when the street address it is associated with is impacted by a disaster or emergency.
