Lakewood Neighborhood Group February 19th 2009

Shawn &
Meeting brought to order.

Fire Dept
Station #5 responded to 9,549 incidents in 2008. In January of 2009 there were 120 incidents. There have been 3 chimney fires recently. This is caused by creosol build up in the chimney. Chimneys should be cleaned every 1-2 years by a chimney sweep or kits can be bought had your local hardware store to do it yourself.

Several suspects have been arrested for breaking into residences. Breaking and entering in cars is still a problem. Most car doors have been left unlocked. Please remember to lock car doors and take valuables inside your house or lock in trunk.

This is the time of year we will see and increase in people going door-to-door offering to do yard work. If the do not have a city license with a placard call the police (911), if they do have a placard you do not have to answer you door.

Most magazine sales door-to-door are not legitimate. Be aware around malls and shopping centers for people looking for a handout.
