WINTER WEATHER ...IT IS COMING!
PLEASE! If there is a prediction of snow of greater than 2 inches, we ask that you PLEASE park in your driveway. This will give our plow drivers a chance to clean curb to curb. It, also, insures that your car does not get plowed in.
Give our drivers a break and park in the driveway. Thanks!
Your ATTENTION & HELP are needed:
There have been some home break-ins in the past two months in the Village. The police have a suspect in custody at this time, but there are things you need to do as a home owner, renter, and resident.
1) IF there is anything you see that looks suspicious, makes you uncomfortable, or just seems out of place...CALL THE POLICE! The emergency number is 9-1-1. The non-emergency number is 314.615.4266. Please call as soon as you notice any of the above. That is why we pay them to watch the Village. A bit of information you have may assist the police.
2) Keep your garage doors closed.
3) Keep your cars locked (even in a closed garage) and your personal possessions removed from the vehicle.
4) Consider leaving outdoor lights on. Be aware if your shrubbery is blocking light or concealing windows and doors.
5) Streets lights are checked monthly, but if you notice a light out, please call Village Hall with the nearest address.
6) Be aware of your surroundings and (again) CALL THE POLICE if you notice anything that does not seem right.

FEMA READY Campaign
Through its Ready campaign, the US Department of Homeland Security educates and empowers Americans to take some simple steps to prepare for and response to potential emergencies, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Ready asks individuals to do three key things:
get an emergency supply kit
make a family emergency plan
and be informed of different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses.
All Americans should have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least three days if an emergency occurs. Following is a listing of some basic items that every emergency supply kit should include. However, it is important that individuals review this list and consider where they live and the unique needs of their family in order to create an emergency supply kit that will meet these needs. Individuals should also consider having at least two emergency supply kits, one full kit at home and small portable kits in their workplace, vehicle or other places they spend time.
BASIC EMERGENCY SUPPLY KIT
As we enter the severe weather season, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management
Administration) recommends assembling a Basic Emergency Supply Kit. Recommended items to include are:
ADDITONAL ITEMS TO CONSIDER ADDING TO AN EMERGENCY SUPPLY KIT:
- Prescription medications and glasses
- Infant formula and diapers
- Pet food and extra water for your pet
- Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records in a waterproof portable container
- Cash or traveler's checks and change
- Emergency reference material such as a first aid book or information from www.ready.gov
- Consider bedding for cold weather.
- Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper (When diluted nine parts water to one part bleach can be used as a disinfectant. Or in an emergency, you can use it to treat water by using 16 drops of regular household liquid bleach per gallon of water. Do not use scented, color safe or bleaches with added cleaners.)
- Fire extinguisher
- Matches in a waterproof container
- Eating utensils, paper towels
- Paper and pencil
- books, games, puzzles or other activities for children
