3 tips so you don’t get burned

It’s National Safety Month. And to celebrate, each week in June we’ll share tips to help us all enjoy a safer summer in Queen Village.

Tip #1:  Attend a public safety meeting with our 3rd District Police Leaders.

Tip #2:   Have an outside security camera?  Join the Philly Police SafeCam Network.

Online registration takes only 10 minutes. Rest easier knowing you’ve done your part to help our Police protect you, your family and your neighbors.

Tip #3:  Throw a Block Party

The better you know your neighbors, the more likely you’ll look out for each other. Swap phone numbers. Tell someone when you’ll be on vacation. (Ask a neighbor to remove weekly circulars from your stoop:  they “advertise” that you’re not home.) So play it safe:  throw a block party, (here’s the application) and get knowsy with your neighbors!

So we’re curious — when is YOUR block’s party?
