Susanville police department says a majority of calls for service during fair week, which is just getting underway today, is for lost children and intoxication. The department offers these tips to help you and your children stay safe and enjoy fair week:
- Know your limit and consume alcohol responsibly. If you plan to drink, arrange for a sober ride and to make sure to stay hydrated.
- Talk to your children about what to do if you get separated at the fair. When you arrive, point out Police Officers and fair personnel who will be able to help with reunification, if needed.
- Leave valuables at home or, if you must leave them in your car, make sure to hide them out of sight and lock your car.
Always keep an eye on your phone, keys, and wallet.
- And while not a safety tip, the department reminds you it will be a hot and sunny week so wear your sunscreen and drink plenty of water.
