Police Crime Report
For the Week ending June 4, 2012
- When driving, know the depth of the water in a dip before crossing. Be aware that the roadbed may not be intact under the water. If the vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately; seek higher ground. Rapidly rising water may engulf the vehicle and its occupants and sweep them away. Good Rule of Thumb: TURN AROUND DO NOT DROWN!
- Stay away from high water, storm drains, ditches, ravines or culverts. Even moving water only 6 inches deep can knock you off your feet.
- If out in a car, leave it immediately and go to a substantial shelter. If there is no shelter nearby, lie flat in the nearest ditch, ravine, or culvert with your hands shielding your head. Be alert for rapidly rising waters in the ditch.
- If you are in a building – go to the lowest level of the structure such as a basement. If the structure you are in has no basement exists – go an interior room and cover yourself with a mattress, blanket, etc. Make sure children are well protected underneath.
Have an Emergency Plan
- If you hear thunder, even a distant rumble, immediately move to a safe place. A safe place is described as a fully enclosed building (a house, store, school, etc.) Sheds, picnic shelters, tents or covered porches do not protect you from lightning. Remember: WHEN THUNDER ROARS, GO INDOORS!
- If you hear thunder, do not use a corded phone in any case. Instead, use Cordless Phones and Cell Phones.
- Keep away from electrical equipment, wiring and water pipes. Sensitive electronics should be unplugged well in advance of thunderstorms. Do not take a bath, shower or use other plumbing during a thunderstorm.

Help us in the fight against crime, by not becoming a victim.
- Gather information about the emergency – stay tuned…listen to the radio or television.
- Have two family meeting places – 1) a place to gather immediately outside the home in case of an emergency such as a fire; 2) a place to gather in case you cannot return to your home.
- Have a friend or out of state family member as the “family” check in contact for everyone to call if your family should get separated
- Have a disaster supply kit and one for your pets as well. Some items to include: water – 3 gallons for each person/pet; food – at least three day supply per person/pet; items for seniors/disabled persons; a manual can opener; disposable – plates, cups, utensils; a utility knife; blankets; hygiene items; prescriptions; first aid kit; battery powered radio and/or television; battery powered lamp and/or flashlights; cash; copies of credit cards, medical prescriptions, important documents, your pets paperwork (license, immunization, etc.) kept in a waterproof sealed container; and a change of clothing for each person in your household.
