[ARCHIVED] District 4 community meeting to focus on public safety, fire prevention

Midland Police and Fire Department officials will promote safety in Midland at a community meeting with Council Member J.Ross Lacy from 6:30-8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29 at the Henderson Elementary library (4800 Graceland Drive).

Police will give a presentation regarding crime statistics in nearby neighborhoods and discuss services offered by the department, such as home security surveys, RAD classes, and Citizens’ Police Academy. Tips for residents will include how to prevent identity theft, and how to learn about crime trends throughout the year by using www.crimemapping.com, www.nextdoor.com, and MPD’s social media accounts. Citizens will be able to ask questions and approach police before and after the presentation to voice specific concerns.

The Midland Fire Department Community Risk Reduction Program will use the meeting as an opportunity to discuss an upcoming free smoke detector installation blitz in the area. The blitz will take place in partnership with American Red Cross on April 16 in the area surrounding Fire Station 6 (located at the intersection of Midland and Thomason Drives), which has been determined as Midland’s highest-risk area for fire incidents through analyzation of data for the last three years. Demographic data also shows that the area poses Midland’s biggest risk for fire deaths.

Midlanders are encouraged to refer acquaintances in need of a smoke detector in this area to the Midland Fire Department. Volunteers are also needed to perform smoke detector installations and survey homes for electrical dangers. Fire officials and volunteers will also offer personalized safety tips to residents during smoke detector installation in their homes.

To inquire about receiving a smoke detector or volunteering to save lives through fire risk reduction, please contact the Midland Fire Department at 432-685-7332.
