First, I, Michele Fiore, would like to invite you to take part in our City of Las Vegas Ward 6 Citizen of the Month Award on Wednesday, September 6th, 9:00am, City Hall, 495 S Main Street, second floor, Council Chambers. Our Citizen of the month award will be presented to Officer Burr. Officer Burr is a resident of Ward 6 and a hero to our neighbors. Thank you Officer Burr for your courage and commitment to keeping our city safe.
Please join me to show Officer Burr and all our officers that we stand with them always and especially in these challenging times. Just as we shake our soldiers hands and thank our military men and women for serving our great nation, fighting for our freedoms and keeping us safe daily, let’s extend that handshake to our officers. Many of our officers are also veterans. When you see a police office, thank them.
We will be partnering up with our Metro Police Northwest Area Command to keep our residents informed, safe and sharing all the services Metro has to offer us. I invite you to First Tuesday at Metro Police Northwest Area Command, 9850 W. Cheyenne, 702-828-3426 for a 9/11 Remembrance & Terrorism Awareness. We will be serving Italian food and soft drinks on us. Be there by 7:00pm sharp this coming Tuesday, September 5th.
Are you or your loved ones prepared for a disaster? As recent events in Houston illustrate, preparedness can be key to surviving major events such as floods or earthquakes. September is National Preparedness Month. The city of Las Vegas Office of Emergency Management is working to improve disaster readiness by providing important information to the public throughout the month of September.
The Office of Emergency Management will provide links and preparedness tips through its official Twitter account, @CLVAlerts, every day during the month of September. Information will include the following:
—How to make an emergency plan and emergency kit;
—How to prepare your family and pets for a possible evacuation;
—How to plan financially for the possibility of a disaster;
—How to obtain alerts directly via e-mail, phone or text;
—How to learn valuable life-saving skills in the event you have to help your family, friends and/or neighbors;
—How to access valuable resources before, during and after a disaster.
