STOP CRIME 

 

From the Chief


The visitors are leaving and the pace is slowing as we enter Fall again in Hermosa Beach. We had another wonderful, event filled summer with thousands upon thousands of visitors, our families and our friends all enjoying our community. As our children return to school we want to remind everyone to take extra precautions while driving. Watch for students around the schools and in our crossing guard assisted intersections. Remember, if a crossing guard is standing in the street with the sign, even though the kids may not be close to you, you must remain stopped until the crossing guard has returned to the curb. Although you may wait a few extra seconds, this ensures the safety of both the children and the crossing guard. Take a breath and relax!

During the summer we experienced a significant spike in thefts of bicycles. Although we arrested a group responsible for many of the thefts, there are others out there committing this crime. Please take the time to properly lock and secure your bicycles. Use high quality locks and chains that can resist the use of "bolt-cutters" as this appears to be the preferred method. Often times the thief will have the cutters concealed under their shirt and while they may appear to be just unlocking the padlock, they are actually cutting it off and riding away as if they were the owner. Park and lock your bicycles in well lit and highly traveled areas. Make frequent checks on your bicycle to ensure it is where you left it. Tell the host or hostess of the restaurant which is your bicycle and ask them to keep an eye on it for you. Lastly, be sure you have all the documentation on your bicycle. We recommend you take a picture of your bicycle, that you place distinctive and personalized stickers or paint to better identify your bicycle and of course keep the serial number of your bicycle in a safe place. We often recover bicycles and are later forced to sell them at auction as the owners never claimed them If your bike is stolen and you report it with the serial number, when found, we will know it belonged to you. Lastly, if you see someone loitering around a group of bicycles, please call the police with a description of the person and their suspicious actions.
I hope everyone enjoys a safe fall season and as always, if you have a question or concern, don't hesitate to send me an email using the form below.

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.
  • 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.

FIRE CHIEF LANTZER'S CORNER

FLU SEASON
It has been reported that the H1N1 vaccine should soon be distributed to health care providers throughout the United States.  It is very important that if you or a loved falls into one of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) vaccination priority groups to contact your medical provider to determine when they will have the vaccine available for administration.  Once again, those priority groups are:

All people ages 6 months to 24 years

People who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age

All pregnant women

Healthcare and emergency medical personnel

People ages 25-64 who have chronic health conditions like asthma or diabetes

 
Don't forget to get the seasonal flu shot, also.

 

NFP Week Banner
 
  
FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
Fire Prevention Week is coming up in October.  The National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) theme for 2009's Fire Prevention Week is Stay Fire Smart! Don't Get Burned.  Fire Prevention Week is from October 4th to the 10th.  The emphasis on burn awareness and prevention focuses on "simple" or "common sense" measures, such as the following:
 
Don't Get Burned

Keep hot foods and liquids away from tables and counter edges so they cannot be pulled or knocked over.

Have a 3-foot "kid-free" zone around the stove.

Never hold a child in your arms while preparing hot food or drinking a hot beverage.

Teach children that hot things hurt.

Be careful when using things that get hot such as curling irons, oven, irons, lamps, heaters.

When using heating pads only use for 15-20 minutes at a time and don't lie, sit or place anything on the pad.

 
Just Right?

To avoid scalds, set the thermostat setting in your water heater to no higher than 120 degrees F.

Remember young children and older adults skin burns more easily.

Consider having "anti-scald" devices on tub faucets and shower heads to prevent scalds.

Test the water before placing a child or yourself in the tub.

Never leave young children alone in the tub, shower or near a sink.

Be careful about scalding water.  The water should feel warm, not hot.  Before you put your child in the tub, test the temperature with your wrist, elbow, or the back of your hand.  Don't rely on a tub with a temperature indicator, such as a drain plug that changes color to indicate too hot, too cold, and just right.  If you're using a thermometer with a read-out, infant bath water should be no more than 100 degrees.  Even when using a thermometer use your wrist, elbow, or the back of your hand as your main guide.

 
Cool a Burn

Treat a burn right away.  Put it in cool water for three to five minutes.  Cover with a clean, dry cloth.

If the burn is bigger than your fist or if you have any questions, get medical help right away.

Remove all clothing, diapers, jewelry and metal from the burned areas.

 
Cooking with Caution

The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking.

Pay attention to what you are cooking.  Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or broiling food.

When you are simmering, boiling, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to remind you.

If you must leave the room even for a short time, turn off the stove.

If you have young children, use the stove's back burners whenever possible.

Keep children and pets at least 3 feet away from the stove.

When you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting or short sleeves.

Allow food cooked in a microwave oven to cool for a few minutes before you take it out.

Open microwaved food slowly.  Hot steam from the container can cause burns.

 
The Heat is On...

Have a 3 foot kid-free zone around open fires and heaters.

Use a fireplace screen to keep sparks inside the fireplace.

Turn portable space heaters off when you go to bed or leave the room.

Keep things that can burn, such as paper, bedding, or furniture, at least 3 feet from heaters.

Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected each year by a professional.

Make sure your portable space heater has an auto shut-off so if it is tipped over, it will shut off.

Have your chimneys cleaned and inspected before each heating season.

 
Take it Outside

Ask smokers to smoke outside.

Give smokers deep, sturdy ashtrays.

Never smoke if you are tired, have taken medicine, drugs, or alcohol that makes you sleepy.

Keep smoking materials away from things that can burn, like bedding, furniture, and clothing.

 
Stay Grounded

Keep lamps, light fixtures, and light bulbs away from anything that can burn, such as lamp shades, bedding, curtains, and clothing.

Replace cracked and damaged electrical cords.

Use extension cords for temporary wiring only.  Consider having additional circuits or receptacles added by a qualified electrician.

If you have young children in your home have tamper-resistant electrical receptacles.

Call a qualified electrician or landlord if you have recurring problems with blowing fuses or tripping circuit breakers, discolored or warm wall outlets, flickering lights or a burning or rubbery small coming form an appliance.

 
Neighborhood Watch

With the economic downturn, it is important to keep a watchful eye on your neighborhood.

Keep trash from collecting on your property.

Remove abandoned vehicles from your property.

Remove dead branches that could be used as a fuel source.

 
Fire-Safety Basics

Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home.  For the best protection, interconnect all smoke alarms throughout the home.  When one sounds, they all sound.

"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.

  Get Ready to ShakeOut!


At 10:15 a.m. on October 15, 2009, millions of Californians will practice
Drop, Cover, and Hold On. Many people and organizations will also practice other aspects of their emergency plans.

Register and we can reach our goal of 10 million participants in 2009!

Emergency Alert Notifications Keep You Informed

 

 When people hear about a disaster situation information is often the first thing people seek.  People have a strong need to know what is happening.  With current technology getting that information is easier than ever. 

Listed below are several links to Alerting notification resources.  Please take the time now to sign up to receive alerts from at least three different sources so you are not relying on only one source for emergency information.  Like your stock portfolio, you don't want to put all your eggs in one basket; rather you want to diversify among stocks, bonds and cash accounts.

Some familiar Alert systems include HBNW Alerts, CodeRED, Alert LA County
and even social media like Facebook and Twitter.  Each has different levels of when an emergency will trigger an Alert to be sent out.  So it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the different alerting systems and remember to rely on more than one system.

HBNW Alerts, when possible, will send alerts usually when there is a warning or watch where critical conditions will occur.  Other NW alerts will be sent, when possible, if residents will in some way be able to "Target Harden" their surroundings or be able to assist neighbors or safety personnel in some other way. 

It is the hope of HBNW to inform generally and encourage residents to become more self-reliant for themselves, their families and their neighbors.  Before an event occurs is the best time to be gathering the tools necessary so that when an event does happen, residents are able to rely on themselves and their neighbors to solve any circumstance that may arise initially.

Thank you for your participation in working together to make our community a safer and more enjoyable place to live.

                                                                                                                        

                                                                                                --Tracy

 

CaliforniaState System

Operated by the Governor's Office of Emergency Services, the Emergency Digital Information Service (EDIS) is the nation's first statewide warning system to use the Common Alerting Protocol. Through EDIS, California state, federal, and local agencies can post messages that are broadcast over the Emergency Alert System and delivered to subscribers over email, pagers, SMS, desktop pop-ups, and other means. The State's Emergency Alert System of broadcasters and cable systems can be activated using EDIS, which can provide both recorded and text-to-speech content for broadcast. EDIS also has a two-way link to the National Weather Service and NOAA Weather Radio. Public subscription to EDIS is available free at edis-by-email.net. (You can see a scrolling RSS EDIS feed on our home page).

CodeRED

 

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.
