CITIZENS ON PATROL UPDATE
Yeah!!!!! We have everything in place and are good to go!! We will be collecting Criminal record check forms either down at the town office or give to Lynn Currie at Bentley Agencies or myself. I will submit these all at once to make it easier for the RCMP to do the checks.
We will need a photo as well for the ID cards These are the instructions for photos for ID cards.
1. Name of COP member (confirm correct spelling of name)
-Does this member already have an ACOPA ID # from the“old” ID card? If so, that number needs to be provided along with the photo.
2. Phone number of COP member
3.A head and shoulders photo of the COP on a light background (similar to a passport photo)
¨ A “selfie” will not be accepted
¨ A scanned photo will not be accepted
¨ A word document will not be accepted
Please email me info and photos so I can upload them to the person I need to for Id cards. If you or someone you know needs help with photos, please let me know and we can arrange to get someone to take pics.
Message me for more info if you have questions.
My email is email@example.com.
Thank you for all your patience!!
Bentley is fortunate to have many organizations and societies who enhance the quality of life for our citizens. Many volunteer opportunities exist!
Contact information for community organizations can be found in the community directory (updated as we are advised).
What Does That Flashing Green Light Mean?
Most Alberta drivers are familiar with the flashing red emergency lights and sirens on ambulances, police cars and fire trucks, and law states that they are required to pull to the right and stop when they see or hear them coming. But not everyone knows about the volunteer Firefighter's flashing green light.
In large cities, emergency vehicles are driven by full-time personnel who use red lights and sirens to get to the emergency scene quickly.
For smaller communities and in rural areas fire protection is provided by volunteers, who most often respond to emergencies in their own private vehicle. These vehicles do not have red lights or sirens to make them stand out from any other car or truck.
When a call comes in, a firefighter may be at his or her regular job, out with the family or sleeping in the middle of the night. They drop everything and immediately respond to the fire hall to drive the fire trucks to the scene.
The flashing green light, usually mounted near the rear-view mirror, is used as an identifier to the drivers of other vehicles so they may, as a courtesy, give up their right-of-way and allow the firefighter to get to the hall unhampered.
If you see a vehicle with a flashing green light you now know it's one of us on our way to help someone in our community. Please let us by as soon as it is safe to do so...Remember, the life or property we are trying to save may be that of a friend, a neighbour or even your own!
