Starting and Growing a Neighborhood Watch  go to: https://www.staysafe.org/starting-and-growing-a-neighborhood-watch/  


Benefits of Neighborhood Watch
The chief aims of a Neighborhood Watch program are to report suspicious activity, reduce crime, and increase neighborhood safety. While beginning a Neighborhood Watch Program is not a guarantee of crime reduction, studies show that neighborhoods will experience an average of a 16-percent crime reduction under the protection of a Neighborhood Watch program.

Some other benefits of Neighborhood Watch include:

  • An increased sense of responsibility and control. These programs help citizens feel empowered in their everyday lives, which can help reduce fear and may lead to an increased sense of personal security. 
  • Greater unity within neighborhoods. Regular meetings bring neighbors together to talk and get to know one another. This leads to a greater sense of unity within the neighborhood and can also bring neighbors together as friends
  • Improved relations with law enforcement. Crime watch programs increase contacts between neighbors and law enforcement, leading to more productive and comfortable relationships.
  • Better community unity. Having something in common, like membership in a Neighborhood Watch Program, brings people together and builds community unity.
  • Improved quality of life. When crime goes down, the quality of life improves for residents. Safer neighborhoods mean happier residents and a better place to live.

PIERSON HURRICANE DORIAN ADVISORY


Dear Residents, 

We are in a Hurricane warning and we would like to inform you of the following:

Please do not put your garbage out on Monday for WCA pick up until further notice. Please do not place trash/ debris on the right of ways. After the storm, place all vegetative debris on the right of way for debris removal. We will be out as soon as possible to clear roads. Be safe!! 

From Volusia County Emergency Management:

Stay indoors in a secure location or in your “safe room.” The strongest part of a house is usually away from windows and exterior doors.

Place towels along window sills and the bottom of doors leading outside to prevent water from coming inside. Have buckets, mops and sponges handy in case of flooding.

Place valuables on tables or high places in case flooding occurs.

Do not go outside as the calm eye of the hurricane passes, unless repairs are absolutely essential. The storm is not over. More severe damage can occur once the eye passes and the winds blow from the opposite direction.

Be aware that Tornados can spawn from hurricanes at any time. Monitor your local news station and if a tornado warning is issued, take cover in your safe room of an interior hallway or lower level if in a tall building. Stay away from glass doors and windows. You also can seek shelter under heavy furniture in the center of the house.

Leave the main breaker on unless the electricity goes off or you evacuate prior to the storm. If the electricity goes off, turn off air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, television sets and computers to avoid damage due to power surges. If the power returns and is steady, these may be turned back on.

Use flashlights for lighting when the power goes off. Do not use candles or any other type of open flame. The fire department cannot respond during a hurricane.

Use the telephone for emergencies only. Jammed phone lines may obstruct emergency calls for police, fire rescue, emergency medical and Red Cross disaster units.

If the power is off, open refrigerator and freezer doors as little as possible.

Stay away from the fuse box, main breaker and electrical outlets in the event of flooding. Normally the electric current will fail with flooding.

Your Town of Pierson.
