From the victim of the Arco theft noted above:

Yesterday at around 4:40 pm I pulled into the Arco Station @ the corner of PCH & Pier Ave in HB.  I use their cash machine that is right next to the pump so I took $40 out of my wallet and put my wallet back in in my purse and placed my purse on the passenger side floor.  I was putting the money in the machine and setting it to my pump when I notice a large beige Chevy Tahoe pull up right next to my car and very close to my car which I thought was wierd.  I instantly thought my purse was being stolen and looked in at the floor and it was gone.  I ran to the front of my car and the Tahoe pulled away very fast and sped down PCH.   I never saw anyone...poor Owen in the back seat was the only one who saw him!!  Unfortunately, in my car, when you unlock your driver side door it unlocks all the doors, so my doors were unlocked.  I think most cars or newer cars aren't like that; you can just unlock your door.  Anyway, moral of the story is as you can guess is that you can't be too careful...even close to your own home!! 

Surveillance cameras caught it all...this guy was actually waiting on 11th St. near the Civic Ctr., he placed a murky-looking plastic cover over his license plate and pulled around next to me just after I pulled up...he was watching me!  The police say he committed the same crime at the same gas station a week ago.

Be careful and be safe!!!

Cindy

 

Suggestion: 

When getting out of your vehicle to get gas, immediately lock your doors and look around at your surroundings before getting the gas.

If something someone is doing seems strange, take the time to stop what you are doing and become more alert of your surroundings. Never hesitate to call the non-emergency dispatch. If you are concerned about something the police are also concerned about it and they want you to call them.

Non-Emergency Dispatch: 310-524-2750 (put it in your phone now)

FIRE CHIEF LANTZER'S CORNER

HBFD

 

A 6.9 magnitude earthquake occurred in western China last Wednesday, resulting in almost 2,000 fatalities.  The contrast in damage and fatalities with the 7.2 earthquake on Easter Sunday in the Calexico/Mexicali area is striking.  There were two deaths in Mexico and one serious injury in El Centro, California from that quake.

The following are some earthquake facts from FEMA:

  • Earthquakes strike suddenly, violently, and without warning at any time of the year and at any time of the day or night.
  • Smaller earthquakes often follow the main shock.
  • An earthquake is caused by the breaking and shifting of rock beneath the Earth's surface. Ground shaking from earthquakes can collapse buildings and bridges; disrupt gas, electric, and phone service; and sometimes trigger landslides, avalanches, flash floods, fires, and huge, destructive ocean waves (tsunamis).
  • Most earthquake-related injuries result from collapsing walls, flying glass, and falling objects.
  • Several thousand shocks of varying sizes occur annually in the United States, and 70 to 75 damaging earthquakes occur throughout the world each year. All 50 states and all U.S. territories are vulnerable to earthquakes. Where earthquakes have occurred in the past, they will happen again.
  • California experiences the most frequent damaging earthquakes; however, Alaska experiences the greatest number of large earthquakes-most located in uninhabited areas.
  • Earthquakes occur most frequently west of the Rocky Mountains, although historically the most violent earthquakes have occurred in the central United States.
  • The largest earthquakes felt in the United States were along the New Madrid Fault in Missouri, where a 3-month-long series of quakes from 1811 to 1812 included three quakes larger than a magnitude of 8 on the Richter Scale. These earthquakes were felt over the entire eastern United States (over 2 million square miles), with Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Alabama, Arkansas, and Mississippi experiencing the strongest ground shaking.
  • The Richter Scale, developed by Charles F. Richter in 1935, is a logarithmic measurement of the amount of energy released by an earthquake. Earthquakes with a magnitude of at least 4.5 are strong enough to be recorded by sensitive seismographs all over the world.
  • It is estimated that a major earthquake in a highly populated area of the United States could cause as much as $200 billion in losses.

STOP CRIME 

 

Hermosa Beach Police

Hermosa Police arrested 24 year old Angel Ayala for the alleged robbery/kidnapping of a local resident that occurred on April 1st, 2010. The victim had met Ayala through a popular social networking site and invited him over to his residence. Ayala then allegedly pulled a gun and robbed/kidnapped the victim. Ayala was identified by fingerprints left at the victim's residence. Ayala admitted to Police that he targets his victims via the social website and is being held without bail until his court appearance on Monday.

Hermosa Police want to extend a thank you to the Manhattan Beach Police Department for their assistance in the arrest, and let our citizens know we have the best multi-agency assistance (between Manhattan PD and Redondo PD) in the South Bay. We are always ready to lend a hand and work toward the common goal of making the South Bay safer for our residents, business owners and visitors.

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.

Do You Have an Emergency Cash Fund?

Why Emergency Cash is a Necessity

Having emergency cash available in the event of a disaster-related emergency is very important. We are so used to relying on plastic, including both debit and credit cards, that we never imagine the possibility of a world without them. In the event of an emergency, it is possible that we will not be able to use credit cards and we may have to rely on an emergency cash fund. Are you prepared?

The Great California ShakeOut! - April 2010

The 2010 Great California ShakeOut on October 21 is six months away, and already more than 3 million Californians are registered to participate!

If you or your organization has not yet registered for 2010, please login to quickly update your information and confirm your participation.  With your help, we can reach more participants this week (especially if school districts and colleges re-register now).

The ShakeOut website is now completely updated for 2010, including resources such as drill manuals, posters, flyers, web banners, and more. These materials are provided to help you plan your drill, to inform your organization's employees or your community, and to encourage others to register. 

Prepare disaster supplies kits.

Personal disaster supplies kits

Everyone should have personal disaster supplies kits. Keep them where you spend most of your time, so they can be reached even if your building is badly damaged. The kits will be useful for many emergencies.

Keep one kit in your home, another in your car, and a third kit at work. Backpacks or other small bags are best for your disaster supplies kits so you can take them with you if you evacuate.  Include at least the following items: (more)



NOTE: Firefighters, preparedness officials, and other experts agree that "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" is the best way to protect yourself during earthquakes. Other methods can be very dangerous. Read our updated special report to learn why.

Thank you for your participation and commitment to earthquake safety!

You may want to consider doing the MYN 9 step Drill with your block on Saturday Oct. 23 in addition to the ShakeOut! Drop, Cover and Hold On Drill on Oct 21 at 10:21 a.m.

Let me know if you plan on participating in either of these drills and we will post your name and block in the e-newsletter.

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A MAJOR DISASTER AT HOME...

1. TAKE CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONES.
2. PROTECT YOUR HEAD, FEET AND HANDS.
3. CHECK THE GAS AT YOUR HOME.
4. SHUT OFF WATER AT THE HOUSE...

If you have had the MYN training but have not yet trained your block and would like some assistance just let me know.


View the MYN PowerPoint Presentation


"Map Your Neighborhood" (MYN) is a program designed to help neighborhoods prepare for disasters.  It is a program that HBNW has adopted and highly encourages Block Captains to attend a class and implement the program 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.
