"Every 15 Minute" program

 

Volunteers wanted

 

Mira Costa School Resource Officer John Loy is looking for some volunteers to help out with the "Every 15 Minute" program at the high school on Thursday June 2 and Friday June 3. Some of you may remember seeing this very powerful and moving video about the dangers of teenage drinking and driving that we featured at our NW fall meeting a few years ago.

 

We realize this is a bit early, but Officer Loy is hoping to get a list started. We do not have any other details as of this moment, but we will keep you posted. If you are interested, please let me know and we will relay the information. Thank you kindly.

 

 

 

Crime Stoppers Information

 
Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

High surf, coastal flooding are forecast for Southern California beaches

Potentially dangerous high surf will pound the Southern California coast for the next two days, producing waves as high as 10 feet, according to the National Weather Service.
 

Graphic: Beach safety

A storm system in the South Pacific Ocean is causing the high tide, which will combine with rip currents to produce  hazardous conditions at some beaches, officials said.

Heavy snows spoil weekend holiday plans in West

The traditional kickoff of the summer season will have a decidedly wintry feel in the Rocky Mountains, as well as California's Sierra Nevada, because of a lingering record snowfall.

Traffic problems car on street

The council agreed to form a subcommittee to tackle Prospect Avenue's hazardous driving. The street has been used as a "cut through" for commuter traffic and some residents have complained about motorists speeding and blowing through stop signs. The council was first asked to consider approving a $12,450 study to find solutions. But instead the council decided to have Mayor Peter Tucker and Mayor Pro Tem Howard Fishman meet with residents to discuss the problem. The subcommittee will report back to council after several meetings. The council also asked the police department to focus its enforcement on Prospect Avenue.

http://www.tbrnews.com/articles/2011/06/01/hermosa_beach_news/news10.txt

NOTE: As learned in our HBNW Block Information Meetings the majority of the citations are given to Hermosa Beach residents in residential areas.  Please make a full stop as directed in the DMV Handbook  (p. 22)

so that it is not you that gets the next ticket.  Please share with your neighbors that their will be increased enforcement on Prospect Ave.

 

"An eight-sided red STOP sign indicates that you must make a full "STOP" whenever you see a STOP sign. Stop before entering a crosswalk or at a white limit line, which is a wide white line painted on the street. If a crosswalk or limit line is not painted on the street, stop at the corner."


 
UPCOMING EVENTS
Helicopter To Land at Hermosa View School

Hermosa View School will have a Coast Guard helicopter land at their school on Tuesday June 7th from approximately 9am to 3pm. Classes will take turns viewing the helicopter and talking with the crew.

 

RB CERT Training

Shakeout 2011:  The BCJCO Planning Committee is already planning the 2011 Great Shakeout drill. It will be a daytime event held on Saturday, 10/15/11. We hope this will enable those who cannot get away from work on a weekday to participate.

 

Manhattan Beach will be the host city. The drill will be held in a residential area to simulate what CERT organizations would most likely be facing in a real earthquake. Exact time of the drill to be decided. Further announcements will follow. Save the date.

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
 
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.  

 
 

HB Disaster Preparedness Logo

 
Prepare. Plan. Stay Informed                                                                


 

Non-Perishable Foods List Non-perishable food items can be stored for long periods of time without spoiling. These foods are vital when preparing for a long trip or a natural disaster. This type of food can be found in army surplus stores, online or in some grocery stores. If you have a dehydrator, you can even make some of your own non-perishable food.


 

COPE Preparedness Map Your Neighborhood

If you're in the South Bay, San Pedro, Carson or Long Beach areas, I highly recommend you attend this free event sponsored by our local neighborhood council in NW San Pedro that will prepare you and your neighbors in the event of a disaster. All of these areas are located either in earthquake, tsunami or hazardous chemical industry areas. While we can't change the environment, we CAN be prepared in the event of a disaster.

Map Your Neighborhood - Emergency Preparedness


Remember: In a disaster, your most immediate source of help are the neighbors living around you.

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.
