Helmet Rewards Program a Success

The Livingston Police Department’s “bike helmet rewards program” this summer has been a huge success, reports the Community Policing Unit. In June, the LPD received a Traffic Safety Mini Grant of $500 from Atlantic Health Injury Prevention. State law requires any bicycle rider or passenger under the age of 17 to wear a bike helmet. To help encourage youngsters to wear their bike helmets, police officers have been handing out vouchers for a free pretzel and frozen lemonade at the Philly Pretzel store in Livingston to all young bike riders they see wearing their helmets. The initiative, which will run through September 30, was spearheaded by Lt. Reese Riley. Shown here, Community Policing Unit Officers Kevin Mullaney and Joy Klapal present a voucher to Livingston resident Taylor Altomare. Officers expect to hand out all 500 of the vouchers they have.

“If You See Something, Buy Something:” LPI Director Urges Contributors To Take Advantage of Summer Sales

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), Livingston’s local non-profit organization, has a mission of “providing for the poor, homeless, and disenfranchised,” and LPI founder and director Jeff Friedman has urged contributors to take advantage of summer sales for the charity’s “Personal Shopping for the Homeless” initiative.
“This time of year, we are exposed to a barrage of sale ads on a daily basis,” said Friedman. “Summer close-out sales, back-to-school bargains, online special offers, two-for-one purchases, email specials, newspaper pull-out sections, and so much more. These wonderful sale opportunities exist right now both in stores and online. That’s why LPI is asking Livingston residents to join our ‘Personal Shopping for the Homeless’ efforts while sale opportunities are so rampant.”

Open Pools and Uncollected Trash

Last weekend, Livingston experienced the strongest heat wave of the year, with temperatures in the 90s for several days and a heat index eclipsing the triple digit mark. In an effort to keep residents cool (in addition to having a cooling center at the Senior/Community Center), the township decided to open up both the Haines and Northland community pools to all residents.

We don’t recall the township ever opening the pools to all during a heat wave, and commend everyone involved for doing so at no charge to residents. It was a creative and simple way to help a sweltering population cool off. And that population took full advantage, with crowds more than tripling those who attended June’s open house event.

Thank You, LPD

The West Essex Tribune would like to thank the Livingston Police Department’s officers for a job well done last week, apprehending a homicide suspect who was found in the township.

We won’t step on Police Chief Gary Marshuetz’s words, which can be read in this edition of the Tribune, but we wanted to commend the LPD all the same.

Our officers took what could have potentially been a very dangerous situation for the township and its residents and handled it without incident. Most residents likely awoke that Monday morning with no knowledge of what had occurred right in their neighborhood. We are lucky to be able to sleep so soundly here in Livingston.

Test Your Smoke Detectors

In this edition of the Tribune, you will read about a residential fire that originated in the HVAC system of a Vanderbilt Drive house. Nobody was home at the time of the fire and an alert was transmitted to the Livingston Fire Department, who arrived in time to extinguish the blaze before it spread and left the home uninhabitable.

Others, particularly those without a properly functioning fire alarm system, may not have been so lucky in a similar situation. It is why this incident is a good opportunity to remind residents of the importance of maintaining a functional fire alarm system. Also, if your alarm system has the ability to connect to a central fire station, one should ensure that it is done. That feature just stopped what ended up being a minor, contained, fire rather than one that could have potentially destroyed a home before a passerby noticed and help arrived.
