As we prepare for Thanksgiving, we are remembering all those that are in need and counting the many blessings that come with serving as the Town of Kenneth City’s Police Department.
Our partnership with the Town has given us the opportunity to give back and to receive in ways big and small. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve and feel privileged to be part of a community full of neighbors, friends, businesses and families that care, in the true spirit of the Holidays. Please take a look at his Album in which we highlight just a few of the many efforts of our community to support our shared mission to keep our Town safe and healthy.

#BuckleUp, Kenneth City! It's the law. The safety belt is your vehicle's best safety feature, but it only works if you use it. No matter how short the trip, there is no substitute for seat belts.
Ongoing through November 29, we will be participating in the national Click It or Ticket campaign whose goal is to reduce traffic fatalities and save lives. As we head towards Thanksgiving, which is one of the busiest travel times of the year, our officers will be patrolling 24 hours a day, getting the word out about the importance of seat belts and child restraints and taking a no-excuses approach.

Seatbelt safety starts with you. According to the NHTSA, children whose parents or caregivers buckle up are much more likely to buckle up themselves. Tell your kids you want to hear them #MakeItClick! Florida Law Enforcement Liaison Program FDOT West Central - Tampa Area #ClickItorTicket

11/16/2020

According to the National Council on Aging, falls are a leading cause of ER visits for older adults, the major cause of hip fractures, and responsible for more than half of fatal head injuries. Did you also know that Pinellas County 911 Safety & Emergency Services reported over 23,000 calls for falls in 2019 in Pinellas County alone?

Our neighbors and colleagues at the Pinellas Park Fire Department recognized the need for more work in the field of #fallprevention and they are premiering a documentary on our community's fall prevention and fall rescue efforts so that we can spread info and tips so that our older adults stay independent and fall-free.

To watch the documentary, tune in from anywhere by clicking here:
https://www.pinellas-park.com/191/City-TV-Spectrum-641-Frontier-21 The documentary is airing Tuesday & Thursday at 10 AM & 7 PM. Great job, Pinellas Park FD, and especially #Engine16!

Fall Prevention is a Team Effort: let’s work together and make sure our older adults, caregivers, and family members all play a part in raising awareness and preventing falls. Prevention IS the best medicine!
#communitypolicing #fallawareness

Tune in to a ground breaking, entertaining 48 minute documentary called Saving Claire by Ames Productions to watch the fall prevention efforts of your Pinellas Park Community. The documentary will air every Tuesday & Thursday at 10 AM & 7 PM on the following:

Pinellas Park Residents can view on:

Pinellas Park City TV Channel Spectrum (641) Pinellas Park
Pinellas Park City TV Channel Frontier (21)

OR if you do not have the cable providers above or are NOT a City of Pinellas Park resident you can still view by tuning into the City of Pinellas Park City TV website at:

https://www.pinellas-park.com/191/City-TV-Spectrum-641-Frontier-21

Pinellas County 911 Safety & Emergency Services reported over 23,000 calls for falls in 2019 for Pinellas County. The Pinellas Park Fire Department responded to over 1,600 fall calls in our community alone. And those numbers are only the falls that were reported. Many older adults do not report their fall! Unintentional falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries among Florida residents ages 65 years and older and our Pinellas Park Fire Department's mission is to decrease falls in our community!

The Saving Claire documentary has a few familiar faces you might recognize from our Pinellas Park community such as; Pinellas Park Fire Department Fire Chief Brett Schlatterer, Pinellas Park Fire Department Fire Prevention Specialist Jillian Rose, & Pinellas Park Bayfront Health ER Dr. Andrea Apple and many more panel experts who will share how our community is taking a stand against falls by sharing fall prevention tips and the innovative ways to get our community engaged and involved to ensure our older adult community stays thriving, independent, and fall free!

Although the Pinellas Park Fire Department's mission is to help prevent falls, we cannot be successful without YOU! We need your help! If you are an older adult, have a parent that is an older adult, or if you are a caregiver we want you to tune in and help us share this information! You might just see or hear that one tip that prevents the fall and saves your life or someone you love! We appreciate YOU!

The 5 day estimated total for rain due to Tropical Storm Eta in the St Pete area is 9.11” We were spared the worst and now that Eta is gone and the weekend is approaching, help to prevent the spread of mosquitoes and mosquito-borne illnesses by dumping all containers that can hold standing water in your yard or patio.

Mosquitoes don't need more than 1/2" of standing water for their larvae to survive, so dump out plant saucers, old tires, pool covers, garbage cans, gutters with fall leaves, anything that can collect standing water.

You can also protect yourself by using repellent, wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and by visiting the County’s Mosquito Control page: http://www.pinellascounty.org/publicworks/mosquito/default.htm or call Pinellas County's Mosquito Hotline: (727) 464-7503

At 4:00 a.m. EST, the center of Tropical Storm Eta had made landfall at Cedat Key. Florida. Eta is moving toward the northeast near 13 mph (20 km/h). Eta will move across northeastern Florida today and emerge into the western Atlantic this afternoon. The cyclone is expected to accelerate over the western Atlantic and move parallel to, but offshore of the Carolinas before heading well east of the Mid-Atlantic coast by late Friday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center. A National Ocean Service station near Cedar Key recently reported sustained winds of 40 mph (64 km/h) and a gust of 50 mph (81 km/h). Eta is expected to weaken now that it has made landfall but could re-intensify as a non-tropical cyclone on Thursday and Friday before becoming absorbed by a larger non-tropical cyclone on Saturday.
