Crime Maps – Week of November 3rd 2013

I hope everyone had a safe Halloween and to our Veterans, thank you for your service!! Please take a second and change the batteries in your smoke detectors. Now that cold weather is upon us, please take a second and update your vehicle emergency kit.

Consider including the following items:

  • Water
  • Blankets
  • Rain tarp
  • Sand, kitty litter, salt, or gravel
  • Shovel
  • Jumper cables
  • Towrope
  • Tool kit
  • Wheel wrench and jack
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • Compass
  • Flares
  • Ice scraper
  • Matches
  • High-energy foods like granola bars, nuts, and dried fruit
  • First aid kit
  • DC phone charger for your particular mobile phone

Before you leave in your vehicle:

  • Check the Weather
  • Keep Your Cell Phone Charged and Handy
  • Maintain Your Vehicle
  • Keep Your Gas Tank Full
  • Give Yourself Extra Time
  • Leave More Space Between Cars
  • Stick to Well-Traveled Highways
  • If You Get Stuck, Don’t Spin Your Tires

*If you get stuck in deep snow, do not press on the gas pedal and spin your tires, as this will dig you in deeper.

If you are travelling long distance, make sure you inform someone of your plans and route.
