Don’t Drink And Drive

Throughout the year, there are many reasons to celebrate; holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, spring break, etc. It’s party time! Taking that celebration out? Think before you drink, how will you get home tonight? Having people over? Think before they drink, how will they get home tonight?
FHP Has The Following Tips To Help You Make That Celebration Fun And Safe.
• Buckle Up. A seatbelt is your vehicle’s most important safety feature, but it only works if you use it.
• Before drinking, designate a sober driver.



Why Post 911 Addressing

When lives and property are at stake, every second counts. Properly posted address numbers can be a vital link to your safety. A missing, incorrect or poorly marked address can delay emergency response when seconds can literally mean the difference between life and death. In the interest of public safety, Putnam County has passed a Uniform Addressing Ordinance, number 2006- 17. This ordinance requires that all homes and businesses display a visible correct street address. Address must be affixed to the front of the building or to a separate structure such as a post, wall or fence, so they are clearly visible from the roadway.
