Put your car keys beside your bed at night.
Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr's office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night.If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.
This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and start to put your keys away, think of this: It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage.
If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.
P.S. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone.
This may save a life!

A Letter from Jen Blackchief on her Husband Troy's recovery progress.
September 15, 2023
To our family, friends, and Troy’s supporters in this community,
Over seven months have passed since the incident that severely injured Troy, forever changing his life and significantly impacting the lives of many. While I keep a daily electronic journal for those closest to us, it has been more than six months since our last comprehensive update, just before Troy was discharged from his first three-week stay at ECMC.
Troy spent fifty-three days at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago, where he began his rehabilitative journey. I had high hopes for the performance of that institution and for the results that Troy would see, and both expectations were exceeded. Drs. Driver and Weber are clinically superlative, directive, collaborative, and, simply stated, good humans. The nursing and therapy teams knew what Troy needed and figured out how to get him to participate even when he was reluctant or disinterested. When we arrived at Shirley Ryan, Troy was in a wheelchair, able to take only a few steps with help, he was unsure of who we were and could not make any new memories. They helped Troy find physical strength and delivered on the most important element of his recovery from my perspective… forming connections between the humans he recognized and the role we have in his world.
We left Shirley Ryan Ability Lab for ECMC on April 23rd for Troy’s replacement skull. 3D printed using a form of resin (PEEK) and secured with titanium plates and screws, Troy’s head was nicely rounded out, protecting his brain for further recovery. After eleven days of intensive medical care, we departed for the Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS)in Fort Worth, Texas. While there are several traumatic brain injury recovery programs across the country, they are located primarily in the Midwest or on the West Coast. Many programs are aimed at maximizing independence with the goal of returning to work, but we could find no program designed to specifically serve law enforcement or emergency responders. After evaluating multiple programs, CNS was chosen for two main reasons. First, the supportive housing structure fits Troy’s lifestyle preferences well. Second, when asked how the program would integrate police work into the program, including fi****ms training, CNS was the only program that did not blink. Welcome to Texas!
Troy has been at CNS since May 4th. He started out strong, but after just two short weeks, he was rushed to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital. There was an infection under his newly placed skull. He underwent another emergency craniectomy, followed
by placement of a central line for long-term antibiotics. We thank Dr. Purcell (Emergency Department) and Dr. Ooi (Neurosurgery) for their clinical excellence and swift action, again saving Troy’s body. The Emergency Room and ICU nurses and support staff were excellent.
Back in the helmet and weakened by the infection, this would be the first major setback in months. Troy’s clinic therapies continued, including physical, occupational, speech, educational, and counseling. After completion of long-term antibiotics, neuro-psych, and neuro-vision evaluations, extensive examinations, and eventual treatment of a jaw injury, shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum, and foot surgery to remove a broken bone and file down several others, Troy is gearing up for his second cranioplasty.
Plans regarding the cranioplasty are in the making and not crystalized enough to share.
Our two living children, Christian and Amaya, continue to be primarily in their aunt and uncle's loving and capable hands, Jana and Justin Blackchief. I have been very fortunate to spend time with them intermittently, flying home when someone is available to be with Troy in Texas. They have each been to Texas a couple times, and while I am not a lover of technology, FaceTime has been a blessing of epic proportions.
To our families, friends, and the Cheektowaga Police Department, your support has been immeasurable; and for our colleagues and community at St. Ann’s, Union Fire Company, St. Mary’s Elementary and High School, and West Seneca West, along with the many sports families we coach and play with, we remain grateful. To our newfound friends in Chicago and North Texas, thank you for welcoming us, supporting Troy, and creating a sense of home so far away from Buffalo.
We will continue to let you know what we need as we figure it out, but one thing remains constant… your encouraging thoughts and ongoing prayers cannot be replaced.
My prayer was for Troy to recreate a life worth living; he is on the path to doing that. As I said in my March 2023 letter, he is the most strong-willed person I know, and if anyone can find his way back… it’s Troy.
With Gratitude,
Jen

weekend, very strong winds, heavy lake effect snow and significant blowing and drifting snow will
be possible. Winds could gust as high as 65 mph
Friday into Friday night. Localized blizzard conditions.
