From December 5-11, our North Port Fire Rescue crews responded to nearly 200 calls. That's a big deal. While not responding to these calls, the past week was also packed with training and furthering education in fire rescue procedures.
NPFR personnel responded to 190 calls in total, including:
• 131 EMS calls
• Two outside fires
• Four vehicle fires
• Two hazardous conditions
• 24 service calls
• 16 good intent calls
• 11 false alarms
The generosity just keeps coming! Thank you to the North Port Buckeyes who adopted 73 children totaling $2,190 worth of gift cards. We appreciate the club for their gracious donation to the Adopt and Shop Program put together by the City of North Port's Social Services Division. If you'd also like to participate in this holiday program, please contact 941-429-3700.
The Traffic Unit is out for the second day of our holiday campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Please don’t drink and drive, put the phones down, and watch your speed. We are also continuing to target our high crash locations, such as US 41, and Toledo Blade Blvd. #drivesoberorgetpulledover
Don’t forget that the City’s 12 Days of Giving is going on until the end of the week. Police headquarters is a great place to drop off non-perishable food items, unwrapped toys, and toiletries for those in need. #Together
