Safety Tips
Tips for Drivers

Be alert, especially in residential areas. Expect the unexpected. Children may cross the street at the wrong place or suddenly run out in front of you. Double check behind you and around you before backing out of a driveway or parking space. Obey all laws and slow down around children playing.

Tips for Parents

Remind children to walk not run across the street. To stop, look and listen before crossing the street. Teach your children to make eye contact with the driver before they cross.

Homeowners Beware
If you own a vacant property please advise our Police Department so that we can watch your residence while it is unoccupied.  We have had a rash of copper pipe thefts at vacant homes. We would be glad to help you in any capacity.                           Chief MacDaid

Any activity that takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, or your mind off of your primary task of driving safety, is endangering yourself and others. Donít be distracted. Put down the coffee, put down the cell phone. Please take driving seriously so everyone can go home safe.
