TRIAD to hold safety class at senior center

by Greg Hubbard

Every year during the holiday season, criminals deprive thousands of people of their holiday joy.

Every year, caring and loving people spend numerous hours, a lot of money and travel numerous miles to find those special gifts for their loved ones.

Yet every season, thousands of people become victims of crime by leaving their loved ones’ gifts in their vehicles and even in their homes only to discover the gifts have been taken by unscrupulous people, right out of their vehicle or homes.

You can learn how to protect yourself and those special gifts.

And every year during the holiday season, thousands of families have their holidays interrupted or even destroyed.

Every year caring and loving people spend numerous hours decorating their homes and yards for the holidays, not always realizing what these additional decorations are doing to their electrical circuits or to their Christmas tree.

Every season, thousands of families experience fire and other emergencies in their homes due to overloaded electrical circuits, hot bulbs on a dried out Christmas tree and even small items too close to the floor where a baby or young child may get to them.

You can learn how to protect yourself, your family and your home during the holiday season.

On Dec. 6 at 5 p.m., the Douglas County TRIAD, along with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the East Fork Fire and Paramedic District, will offer a class on Christmas Season Safety at the Douglas County Senior Center. Dinner will be provided following the class.

Please help us by learning how to protect yourself.

Interested people should make reservations by Dec. 4 by calling 782-9900 or 782-8267.

n Greg Hubbard is a deputy with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and a member of TRIAD.
