Just wanted to take a minute and thank our wonderful community and McDonald’s of Wiggins for sponsoring kids night throughout the months of June and July.

Great group of children, great parents, great support staff at McDonald’s. It’s things like these moments that really let us know what special times are. Thanks again guys.

🛑🛑🛑🛑SCAM ALERT!!!!!🛑🛑🛑🛑 We've received several calls today in reference to a power bill scam. The caller is calling businesses and residences threatening to shut the power off if their power bill isn't paid immediately over the phone. As always, do not give out your account numbers or credit card numbers over the phone. If you receive a call similar to this, you should hang up and call the phone number on your power bill, not the number the caller provides you with. If your power is going to be shut off, you should have already received a bill stating that you are past due.

Come out and have your child's car seat inspected by our CPST's today! We're out at the Stone County Fairgrounds. https://www.facebook.com/events/184354065627076/?ti=cl

Use caution with all campfires, bonfires, fire pits, and grills so that the fire you make doesn’t get out of hand. Please put out all fires before sunset. It’s important to start outdoor fires in a place that has been cleared of all flammable material, such as weeds or grass, so that it can’t spread. It’s also important to have a bucket of water or a hose nearby. Make sure there are no more glowing embers before walking away from the fire. Remember, never leave a fire unattended—and glowing embers are fire. Windy conditions can spread a fire, even from a pit or barrel. The stronger the wind blows, the faster the fire spreads. The fire generates winds of its own that are as many as 10 times faster than the ambient wind. It can even throw embers into the air and create additional fires, an occurrence called spotting. Wind can also change the direction of the fire, and gusts can raise the fire into the trees, creating a crown fire.

The FEMA building at Stone High School will be opening as a cold weather shelter tonight at 530 pm.

Wishing WPD Officers, Staff and Citizens a safe and prosperous 2018!
