Halloween is coming up fast and youngsters will soon be out trick or treating. As they get ready to collect their Halloween treats, the White Plains Department of Public Safety and the American Red Cross have tips to make this a fun and safe Halloween.
Be Prepared for Tropical Storms:
- Ensure you have a way to receive warnings-a NOAA weather radio, a weather app on your phone or the radio/television.
- Sign up for the City of White Plains alert notifications system at “White Plains Alerts”. To sign up go to wppublicsafety.com or cityofwhiteplains.com Signing up will allow emergency managers to communicate with you if necessary.
The White Plains Department of Public Safety is pleased to announce the continuation of the Public Safety Citizen’s Academy. This special and exciting eight-week program is intended for the residents of the City of White Plains who want to learn more about the White Plains Public Safety Department.
This Academy is offered FREE of charge and is a hands-on, interactive, behind-the-scenes program that is taught by experienced police officers, fire fighters and emergency medical personnel.
As the school year starts, we at the Department of Public Safety wish all of our residents and school age children a wonderful and safe year. To that end, we have posted some basic back to school safety tips. Please take a look at them and adjust them according to your schedule and child. Public Safety will be out there, highly visible and enforcing traffic laws to ensure that our children have a safe passage to and from school. As a reminder, if you see something, say something. Community and Police working together will ensure that everyone is well protected. Have a great and productive school year.
