Crozet Safety Corps Meeting – 27 January 2014

The Crozet Safety Corps holds is Annual Meeting on Monday, January 27 at 7 pm in the Crozet Firehouse. Please plan to be with us during the first annual meeting since our organizational meeting last year. Four officer seats are up for election that constitute the Executive Committee. They are Chairman, Vice Chairman, East Sector Leader and West Sector Leader. We also have two appointed positions who serve at the pleasure of the Chairman – Training Officer and Communications Officer. This will be an exciting day in the life of the Corps and we look forward to your participation.

Please pass this on to anyone in western Albemarle who might be interested in attending. Besides officer elections, the meeting will include a crime summary from this past year from our Albemarle County Police Department (ACPD) Liaison, Andy Gluba, the Blue Ridge Division Crime Prevention Officer.

The Crozet Safety Corps is a community safety group that formed this past summer. The Crozet Gazette did a story on it, available here.

The Crozet Safety Corps is on the leading edge of national trend moving from “Neighborhood Watch” programs to community safety groups whose focus is more on emergency preparedness and community building.

“Community safety groups do not require a lot of time,” Crosby said, “but the benefits and the relationships that are developed are invaluable to creating a well-organized and secure neighborhood.

At last week’s meeting of the Albemarle County Police Department Citizen’s Advisory Team for the Blue Ridge district, the Crozet Safety Corp was showcased as a well-functioning example of a community safety group. To learn more, visit their website.

So plan to attend tomorrow night’s (Monday, January 27) 7PM meeting of the Crozet Safety Corp at the Crozet Firehouse.

Video of Structure Fire in Crozet

There was a fire in Crozet tonight. It was a small shed. I’m not going to speculate on how it happened, only I’m glad that the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department arrived so quickly and no one and no home appear to have been injured.

The video is unedited; taken with my Droid.

I know this. I’m grateful for the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department. Donate here: http://bit.ly/f0TpFGless than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply
