HELP YOUR PET GET BACK HOME!

Many pets are frightened and lost during the thunder and rains in stormy weather. A pet identification tag can help make sure your pet gets back home.

A local non-profit, Good Dogma, is partnering with the City to provide free pet identification tags and severe weather planning tips for pets before the storm season hits. Here are the dates and locations for free pet tags:

Saturday, April 6 at MWC Animal Shelter (7221 NE 36th St) - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday, April 13 at Covered in Color in Town Center Plaza - 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Friday, April 26 at Fire Station #1 (8201 E Reno Ave) - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday, April 27 at the MWC Library (8143 E Reno Ave) - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

NEW OUTDOOR WARNING SIRENS COMING SOON

Outdoor Warning Sirens were part of the public safety bond proposition approved by voters last August. The contract for installation of the new Outdoor Warning Sirens was awarded at the March 26 Council meeting. They will be installed the first week in April. The new sirens have a slightly different alert than our current sirens and they are omni-directional with a consistently loud sound.

Just a reminder that Outdoor Warning Sirens are meant to alert you when you are outdoors and away from your radio or television. They are not intended to alert you when you are indoors. If you are inside your home, you may not hear them so it is important to have a NOAA Weather Alert Radio (or weather alert app on your smart phone) with you when you are inside and don't have the television on or tuned to local channels.
