As everyone in the Upstate is preparing for Hurricane Irma to make landfall this weekend or early next week just a few reminders to keep everyone safe during the storm. Create an emergency supply kit to save valuable time later. The kit should include everything an individual or family would need for at least two weeks, especially medicines and other supplies that might be hard to find after a storm strikes. Maintain a supply of water and non-perishable food. Charge cellphones, computers and other electronic devices in advance of the storm to stay connected to important safety and response information. Consider purchasing portable chargers and make sure they are fully charged as well. Stay away from power lines that have fallen or are sagging. Consider all lines energized as well as trees, limbs or anything in contact with lines. Never drive through standing water, there are several areas that flood in our area which could be deeper than is expected. There is also the possibility that flood waters have eroded the roadways or substrate which could cause your vehicle to become stuck trapping you inside the vehicle. Duke Energy is making preparations for the storm in case it makes its way to the us if you are experiencing an outage or downed power lines you can call: Duke Energy customers – 800.769.3766 Duke Energy Progress customers – 800.419.6356 For a “Hurricane Kit Checklist,” important safety tips and more information on what to do before, during and after a storm, visit https://www.duke-energy.com/safety-and-preparedness/storm-safety.

The Landrum Police Department has been receiving several complaints of animals being left in vehicles with the windows cracked and vehicle off recently. This is a reminder that animals should never be left in vehicles as the temperatures rise and fall quickly which could be a deadly situation for your pets. Before you leave the house, ask yourself if you need to bring your pet, if the answer is "No" leave them at home.

Just a reminder that Spartanburg County District One schools go back in session on August 17. This means that school buses will be back on the roads and everyone here at the Landrum Police Department would like to remind motorists to watch for children walking to and from school as well as buses that are stopped loading and unloading children. The Landrum Police Department will be watching for reckless driving in school zones as well as motorists passing school buses. Lets keep our children safe and have a great school year.

Good Evening! We would like the community's help. There have been a few bear sightings in the area. We would encourage you to be sure to report it, remember bears can be very dangerous. It is not a good idea to approach them weather on the ground or in a tree. We are understanding that if you leave them be most of the time they will return from where they came from. So remember it is exciting to see them, but it is also very dangerous. So please stay clear from them and call to report where it is they are. Thanks for the help. Thank you.
