Weather, your vehicle, and keeping your kids safe
Is your car hot after sitting in the sun? Imagine what a child's car seat feels like after sitting in the sun. Imagine what it's like to be left in a hot car while mommy or daddy "runs inside real quick" to pay for gas, leaving the windows closed. My inside vehicle temperature was 95 yesterday, even with a sun shade in the windshield. Did you know that over 20 children have already died, this year, from being left in a hot car ? Read the stunning facts here. This site, SAFE KIDS.org, is a "must" site for parents, grandparents, babysitters, siblings - anyone who has contact with children.

Is your home properly marked?
(This article is dedicated to D/E Jeff Burgin. It was his vision to see all residences and businesses in Palm Bay property marked.)
Our mission is to provide you with top-notch customer service. Our goal is to get to you as soon as possible when you have an emergency. Having your house number properly marked and very visible from the street is essential. City Code dictates the posting of numerals at least 3" high, 1/2" wide, and in a contrasting color (Code of Ordinances link here. Select Land Development, Street Numbering and Naming, Chapter 179.062C). Please check the numbering on your home as a part of your family's safety plan.
