Deputy Fire Marshal: Ralph Martin announced the date of the Board Up as 10/19/12. 8:30 AM in front of the City Hall.
Always look for 2 ways out of any place you are in when arriving. In other words look for exits and know where they are. Practice this also in your own homes. Never leave space heaters unattended. Never run any appliances with an extension cord. If you have to ever use an extension cord, make sure it is UL approved. Check your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are working. The fire department will come out to your home and install them for you if you need one, free of charge.
Sergeant Terry Carpenter: Terry announced we are doing a clean-up of 315 Bullock with police. It is an empty lot. Meeting time is 10:00 AM.
We are at a 40 year low on homicides. The police have arrested a guy from the Greenwich area. The police are dealing with mostly drug trades and Breaking and Entering’s. The Southwest Saginaw Neighborhood Area has had 4 non-fatal shootings. If you have any information, please call 757-2010 Tip Line.
