It's time to brush up on rainy-season driving skills.

Officer and K9 in a rainy patrol car

Our firefighters and police officers have been responding to a lot of traffic crashes since the rainy season started, so it's time to brush up on winter driving habits. Wet roads = slippery roads, so slow down and allow more stopping time for yourself and other drivers. Also, always turn your headlights on anytime your wipers are on--it's the law, and it makes your car more visible to other drivers.

Staying safe in the kitchen during the season of feasts.

Thanksgiving

For most, the kitchen is the heart of the home, especially during the holidays. From testing family recipes to decorating cakes and cookies, everyone enjoys being part of the preparations.

 

So keeping fire safety top of mind in the kitchen during this joyous but hectic time is important, especially when there’s a lot of activity and people at home. As you start preparing your holiday schedule and organizing that large family feast, remember, by following a few simple safety tips you can enjoy time with your loved ones and keep yourself and your family safer from fire.

Safety tips

  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

      Protect your mail!
          We've seen an increase in mailbox break-ins recently. Let's send would-be mail thieves away empty-handed, by not leaving mail in the boxes overnight or extended periods of time.
      It's tax season, and tax forms with sensitive financial information are being mailed. Thieves look for such documents to steal your identity and commit fraud. Make it a habit to empty your mailbox every day, as soon as possible after delivery. Never let mail, whether incoming or outgoing, sit in the mailbox overnight. If you're going out of town, stop your service and have the post office hold your mail until you return.
      When you're mailing checks, financial information or tax returns, we recommend handing your mail to the carrier or taking it to the post office for mailing.
      Call police immediately if you see someone tampering with or prying a mailbox. Call 911 to report a crime in progress, or (916)774-5000 ext. 1 to report something after the fact.
      Join us for Coffee with a Cop
          Join us for our next Coffee with a Cop! This is an informal get-together when you can drop by, enjoy a beverage and visit with your local police officers and neighbors. Ask any law-enforcement-related questions you may have, raise concerns, or just say hi. All ages are welcome. Our next Coffee with a Cop is on Saturday, January 27 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Peet's, 1200 Cirby Way (in the Bel Air center at Sunrise & Cirby).
      All-City Neighborhood Watch Meeting
          All Neighborhood Watch block captains and those interested in starting or revitalizing a Neighborhood Watch group are invited to an informational meeting on Tuesday, January 30 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Roseville Police Department's Mark White Community Room. You'll meet Roseville Police Chief Jim Maccoun, get an overview of crime trends in Roseville in 2017, and learn what to watch for in 2018. Active neighborhood watch block captains will have a chance to share what's going on in their neighborhood watch groups, and new people will find how to start a group.  RSVPs are appreciated but not required--call Police Community Services, (916)774-5050, or email PDCommunityServices@roseville.ca.us.
      Refunds to some scam victims--deadline to file approaching.
      If you lost money via a scam involving a Western Union wire transfer, you may be eligible for a refund. The deadline to file a claim is February 12, 2018. You must have lost the money to a scam via a Western Union wire transfer between January 1, 2004 and January 19, 2017.
      Some types of scams that were facilitated by Western Union wire transfers:
      --Online purchase scams--you paid via Western Union and never got the items you purchased.
      --Lottery or prize scams, where the scammer had you wire money to them via Western Union for "taxes" or "fees" before you got your winnings, which you never received.
      --"Grandparent" scams, where someone called you pretending to be a relative in trouble, and tricked you into wiring them money via Western Union.
      --Online dating scams, where someone struck up an online "romance" and tricked you into wiring them money via Western Union.
      For more information on this settlement reached between the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission and Western Union, and how to file a claim, visit the FTC's website.
      Save the Date - Fire Station Open House on February 3rd
      Join us on Saturday, February 3, from 9:00 am - 11:00 am, as we open the doors to Roseville Fire Station 4 (1900 Eureka Road) for a Fire Station Open House! Families are invited to come and tour the fire station, ask the firefighters questions, and see firefighting equipment. This is a fun family event!
      Make and practice a fire escape plan.
       
      Your ability to get out depends on advanced warning from smoke alarms and advanced planning. Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as one or two minutes to escape safely once the alarm sounds. A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. To learn how to create your family's fire escape plan, visit the National Fire Protection Association's website but clicking here.
