MAY 2022 PUBLIC SAFETY TIPS

These tips are intended for residents, visitors and property owners of Brookfield, VT but may apply to neighboring towns as well.

May is “Click-or-Ticket” month and all Police Departments, will be out there, looking for people on the roadways who aren’t wearing their seatbelt’s. This program is for your safety not just another way to write tickets. After all it’s the Law!

Now that Clean-Up Day is over. It’s been reported that some used needles have been found. The Vermont Needle Disposal Initiative says with a few simple steps, it’s OK to throw them away. #1-Put on heavy gloves and use pliers or tongs to place the needles in a thick plastic container, like a laundry detergent bottle. #2-Screw on the cap and seal it with strong tape. #3-Write “Do Not Recycle “ on the container and throw in the regular trash. Remember, if you come across a needle, don’t panic, just follow the guidelines and remove it safety! It’s also a good idea to notify your local Police Department (in Brookfield that is OCSD 802-685-4875) of the location of where and when you found it.

This is also a time when you should expect to see farm equipment, horseback riders and other slow-moving vehicles, particularly on back roads.  Please drive at a speed from which you can take proper actions to avoid an accident.
