Dear KSS Clients

Well done to KSS Operations staff who affected the arrests of 4 criminals this past week. Also, a thank you to SAPS for their ongoing support and back-up.

Storms and lightning strikes
Please may we advise clients to ensure that doors and windows are closed when you are not at home. Often a storm rolls in and the high winds cause many unnecessary alarm activations due to doors and windows banging and curtains blowing in front of beams (PIR’s).

Please also note that KSS has been requested to dispatch medical services to two people that have been stuck by lightening over the past fortnight. It’s not always possible to predict where lightning will strike, but here are some tips on what to do when there is lightning activity. (Adapted from www.parent24.com).

• Lightning is electricity which is attracted to the tallest object around, as it travels between the earth/ground and the sky. The first rule of lightning is to avoid being outside when there is lightning activity. Avoid fields and open spaces which could make you the tallest object.
• The second rule is also incredibly important: When we’re caught outside in a storm, our instinct is to seek shelter under a tree. This is very dangerous, because if the tree is struck, the lightning could jump to your body.
• A car is a safer place to find shelter. Even though a car is metal, lightning will be conducted through the metal of the car and into the ground.
• Avoid using items such as umbrellas or golf clubs.
• If caught in an open space, find a hole or ditch to hide in, and make your body as small as possible - don’t lie flat, though.
• Inside your house, avoid anything electrical such as plugs, appliances and telephones, as well as anything relating to water such as taps, basins or pipes, as water is a conductor of electricity. Don’t have a shower or bath during a storm!
• Avoid swimming or standing on a beach, as lightning may strike at the water’s edge.
• Remove anything metal from your clothing and body, such as jewellery, belts and coins – if caught outside.
• Don’t use your cell phone outside during a storm.

Remember: When thunder roars, go indoors. Find a safe, enclosed shelter. Lightning can strike very far from a thunderstorm, so even if it isn’t raining, once you can hear thunder you may be in danger.

Crime Report 23 - 31 January 2018

Dear KSS Clients

Attempted mugging
A high school boy was accosted by a man of about 30 years old today (31 January) at about 1:50pm on the corner of Ludgate Hill and Ridge Road in Howick. The school boy was able to defend himself and ensure that his cell phone was not stolen. KSS advises that scholars (of all ages) be supervised by an adult or walk in groups of 3 or more when walking home after school. KSS will increase patrols in the area. Emergency numbers on speed dial is also suggested. The KSS Control Room is 033 330 5911 and SA CAN is 0861672226. TrackBox is also a useful App to download (developed by SA CAN).

Basic Security Advice
• Always set your alarm.
• When you are at home, be aware of gates, doors and windows left open.
• Be responsible for your OWN safety and security. Make your property “less desirable” to break into than those around you. Deflect the crime away from yourself.
• Get to know your immediate neighbours.
• Create extra layers of protection around your house. Put up security gates, glass “smash” sensors on large panes of windows and external beams that can be active while you are at home. All these options slow down criminals and also allow for early warning and detection.
• Clear overgrown bushes in and around your property. Bushes make very good hiding places for criminals and it is best to have them neatly trimmed.
• Be aware of suspicious people and vehicles in your neighbourhood. Report to KSS or local authorities so we can follow up.
• Support local community crime projects like the Community Bobbies Patrol Project in Greendale Park (Howick) and the Hilton Street Hawks (Hilton).
