Are you aware of any streetlights out in the City of Atlantic Beach? We have a handful of locations that we are sharing today with JEA. Please post here -- today only -- if you are aware of any. Otherwise, here is where to go online to report streetlight outages directly to JEA: https://www.jea.com/outage_center/streetlight_outages/

In the past two decades, horrific mass shootings have been thrust into public consciousness. Mitigating the effects of these sudden incidents is the responsibility of those who serve in our communities' public safety organizations. The public expects an effective and swift response to these threats and the sequence of events that follow them. Research has shown however that many of the mass shootings, or active shooter events, are over before law enforcement responders arrive on scene. Civilians who find themselves in an active shooter event must be prepared to take immediate action to save their own lives before law enforcement arrives. The average response time for police response to an active shooter event is three minutes. Without effective, preplanned response options for civilians at the scene of an attack, many victims can be seriously injured or killed during these three minutes. The Civilian Response to an Active Shooter Event (CRASE) course provides participants with strategies that can be used to prepare and respond to an active shooter event or other life-threatening incident. Participants will be presented with several steps to take to help law enforcement response and to limit the number of potential victims. CRASE Training - November 18th, 1-3 PM, 751 Atlantic Blvd.

Is Your House Number Clearly Visible from the Street?????? Seconds Count in an Emergency!!!!!!!!! That’s why it’s important that your house is clearly marked for emergency personnel. Simply put, ensure that assistance coming from any direction is easily able to identify your house number. Protect your family and your property by having large visible house numbers. Firefighters, police officers, and paramedics will be able to find you faster when your home is properly marked. A visitor, child, or injured person may be unable to give clear directions and rely on your house being properly marked. Emergency personnel from a neighboring community may be unfamiliar with your area. Use Large, Visible Numbers! Script numbers or numbers that are spelled out in words may be aesthetically pleasing but are difficult to read quickly from the street. Put the numbers under lighting, and use numbers with a contrasting background so they will be visible at night. Attach numbers to the home and NOT a door. Doors can be opened which will make the markings no longer visible. If your driveway is long, also post your house number on BOTH sides of a mailbox or sign pole at the end of the driveway near the road. Be sure that the view of the numbers is not obstructed by shrubs, trees, or decorations, such as flags.

The Atlantic Beach Police Department would like you to know the rules and regulations regarding golf carts driven on local roads. Florida State Statute 316.212 governs when golf carts are permissible. In Atlantic Beach, golf carts are only allowed in the Atlantic Beach Country Club and Fleet Landing. Citizens may convert golf carts to electric low speed vehicles (LSV) for use on city roads defined in state statute 316.2122. If you do not already own a low speed vehicle and wish to convert a golf cart to a low speed vehicle, please refer to Florida State Law 316.225 (Mounting of reflectors, clearance lamps and side marker lamps), 316.271 (Horns and warning devices), 316.2952 (Windshields; requirements; restrictions), and 316.410 (Taillamps). Once the golf cart is fully converted per law to a low speed vehicle, Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will issue a title, registration, and tag for the vehicle (please check your local DMV for fees and charges). Licensed drivers are then allowed to drive on public roadways with a speed limit of 35mph or less. LSV must follow all applicable traffic, licensing, and parking laws and regulations. ***Seatbelts are required on golf carts. This is just a stock photograph. Sorry for any confusion!

Happy Halloween!!! We had a great time at the Book Literacy Parade at ABE. We found some kids to join ABPD! #ABRocks

Everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, but not when it comes to child safety. There are several easy and effective behaviors that parents can share with kids to help reduce their risk of injury. · Walk Safely, cross the street at corners! · Put electronic devices down and keep your head up when you walk! · Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape. •. Only go to homes with a porch light on! · Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them be seen by drivers. · Drivers…slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods! For a complete list of safety tips, visit https://www.safekids.org/tip/halloween-safety-tips
