January Neighborhood Meeting Recap

A recap of our January 17 meeting.

Our guest speaker was Jamie O’Leary from the 911 Communication Center. She provided great information & cleared up some misconceptions people have about calling 911. For instance, when you call 911 the most important thing you can tell them is your location. Teaching your children where they can find the address of their location is so important! Show them where they can find the address on a piece of mail, as simple as that & it can save lives. In OKC, the person taking your call isn’t dispatch. If you call 911 on accident please don’t hang up, stay on the line & explain that’s all it was. You won’t be in trouble, but they are required to call back all hang ups! Lastly, calling 911 in non emergencies is ok & most of the time they can redirect you as needed.

So many brought donations of teacher supplies, thank you!

We always needs more people to join our Neighborhood Crime Patrol! Classes at Hefner station are Feb 26 & June 11, attend a class & join our Neighborhood Crime Patrol!

Recap of General Meeting

In case you missed the meeting, here is a recap, so you can participate in the Smoke Detector program.

Firestation 34 The Fire Fighters of Station 34 sponsored our meeting and it was held at their firehouse. Major TJ Reed spoke to us about fire safety for the holidays and the smoke detector program.

Last year 22 people died in household fires. Nineteen of them could have been prevented if they had active smoke detectors. Mayor Holt changed the smoke detector program where you used to go and pick one up at the fire station, take it home and install it yourself. He created this new program, to provide smoke detectors to the public at no charge and have the fire department come out and install them for you. The battery lasts 10yrs and no more changing the batteries twice a year! If it ever goes out the fire department will come back out and install a new one.

To take advantage of this program, you can call the main number of 405-297-3584 and tell them you want them to come out and evaluate your home for smoke detectors. They will set it up with the station and fire fighters will come out and evaluate your home for the number of detectors and install them for you! Please take advantage of this program. We want you all to be safe!

Several questions were asked and here are some tips.

If you have smoke detectors installed 10+ years ago, are they still good if you are changing the batteries twice a year? Possibly, but you would be safer if they changed them out for you. Technology changes and it is free for them to do it for you.

They said to make sure you water your Christmas Trees regularly. When they get dried out, they can cause fires.

Be careful when frying turkeys. Do not put wet turkeys in hot oil. The water on the turkey will make hot oil spit and burn you.

Other questions that were asked.

What do you do if you are at a stop light and a fire truck comes up behind you? Do you run the light or let them around you? Answer: Look both ways go through the light  honking you horn. The fire truck will also be honking their horns.

How long does it take to respond to a call? They respond within 4 minutes! While we were there they received a call and seven of the fire fighters went out on that call, taking two of the trucks. All seven were in their suits, on the trucks and heading to the fire location within 30 seconds.

They were very excited that we came to learn about what they do. We are welcome to come visit them at any time. They also said that if you don’t know what to do about something, to call them or stop by and they will help you. If you need assistance with a medical issue like needing to check your blood pressure, stop by and they can help.

Thank you

Special “thank you” to all of you that donated water. They were extremely thankful!
