Crime Report 21 - 28 June 2017

Hi all

Overgrown bushes
Please clear overgrown bushes in and around your property. Bushes make very good hiding places for criminals and it is best to have them cleared away or neatly trimmed.

Bobbies Community Patrol Vehicle (Howick)
Our poor Greendale Park Bobbies Community Patrol vehicle was partially driven over by a VERY large truck last week. The Bobbies vehicle was stopped at a traffic light in Bell Street, with the truck next to it in the right-hand lane. The truck then proceeded to turn left and miscalculated the turn, with the HUGE rear wheels going over the bonnet of the vehicle. The two Armed Reaction Officers in the vehicle were stunned, but thankfully unharmed. The Bobbies are currently using one the additional KSS Armed Reaction vehicles, and as soon as the repairs have been made, the little Datsun Go will be back on the road.

Crime Report 14 - 20 June 2017

Dear KSS clients

Fire safety
Almost 99% of all fires are caused by human negligence. They are mostly caused by electrical faults or carelessness. Cigarettes, matches and lighters, candles, heating appliances and open braai fires can all cause fires if not carefully monitored. But it is not only human error that causes fires. Environmental factors such as changing weather patterns and urban spread increase the risk of fires, with the effects and level of damage often being felt more severely.

To prevent the loss of lives and property, everyone needs to be aware of the dangers of fire, especially during fire season this winter. Here are some tips to stay fire safe:

• Always extinguish fires and safely dispose of hot ash, coal and cigarettes.
• Ensure that your electrical appliances are correctly wired.
• Don’t overload power points and switch off appliances when not in use.
• Make sure gas appliances are correctly installed.
• Keep the area around your home clear of flammable materials (dry bush, scrub etc...)
• Never leave an open fire unattended (braai, in the fireplace at home, garden refuse etc...)
• Always make sure that you are alert in the kitchen when cooking and don’t leave the stove unattended.
• Talk with all family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan.
• Clean the lint filter of your tumble dryer each and every time you use it.
• Take extra care when using heaters and electric blankets. Do not leave them on unattended.
• Always work in an open, cleared area when working with power tools.
• Buy a small fire extinguisher from a reputable dealer to keep in your home – note the correct way to use it and ensure that it has not expired.
• Familiarize yourself with emergency numbers in the event of a fire and medical emergency OR call the KSS 24/7 Control Room on 033 3305911.
