The Budd Lake First Aid and Rescue Squad Runs on Dunkin Donuts

Left to right: Mini Patel, Manager, Mount Olive Dunkin Donuts Kalpesh Patel, Director of Operations for VBCE Phyllis Gentile, President, Budd Lake First Aid and Rescue Squad. Photo by Jen Nelson.

by Jen Nelson unkin Donuts Franchisee VBCE Group-North Jersey, saw an opportunity to help the Budd Lake First Aid and Rescue Squad (BLFARS), and the community, at the same time. Meeting with Phyllis Gentile, President of the Budd Lake First Aid and Rescue Squad at the Dunkin Donuts franchise next to the squad building in Budd Lake, last week, Kalpesh Patel spoke about his work with Dunkin Donuts. With six stores in the Morris/Warren County area of New Jersey, Patel and the VBCE Group are an integral part and start of the day for many residents who travel the commuter corridors to work, each day. Its common knowledge and experience that many commuters start the day with a cup of coffee, and the television and print ads stating that the country runs on Dunkin Donuts reflects this countrys focus on

keeping up with a busy society and workforce. Whether customers sit and enjoy a light meal, or take their coffee with them to go, the traffic at this location is constant and cheerful. Whether its bus drivers, families, friends sharing an ice coffee on a hot summer day, or a hot chocolate during a recent snowstorm, they meet at this place that hums with energy that is palpable and welcoming. One can sit and observe the coming and going of many people who pass through here from all walks of life, and, outside the side windows, watch the frequent activity of the first aid and rescue squad next door. Patel said that he, too, has watched as the members of the squad raced out to emergencies around Budd Lake, and admired their volunteerism and dedication to the people of this town. Gentile, active in the community in sevcontinued on next page

continued from previous page eral groups, proudly spoke to Patel of the first aid and rescue squad that has grown over the years with dedicated members who receive thorough training in all aspects of EMS and Rescue operations, in weekly drills, monthly training and constant response to emergencies in town Gentile, a member of 20 years, invited Patel to visit the squad building, where he learned about the planning, training and quick response time of members to approximately 900 calls

Like us on facebook Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News, March 2014, Page 7 received every year. Operating with three ambulances, a fully-equipped rescue truck, and the township mass incident truck, the squad also trains and operates a water rescue boat. Patel saw and understood the need for newer computers to maintain the squads challenging administrative business financial records, donations received from the public, correspondence, record keeping and the technical reports, such as tables, etc., related to the operation of the squad based on first aid and rescue response calls, training, and membership. An advocate and staunch supporter of community involvement and outreach, Patel gathered up his resources and responded to the squads call for help. Patel states, I wanted to reach out to this fine community group, and offered to donate new computers to help meet the needs of a busy and critical service to the community. Patel is no stranger to community outreach, having supported other organizations, such as the American Red Cross Blood Drive, held in a mobile bus parked in the Dunkin Donuts parking lot in Budd Lake, on February 19th. Patel also proudly hung up framed recognition saying, Dunkin Donuts of Budd Lake Supports the Mount Olive Junior Marauders. When presented with two brand new HP Desktop PC 110-210, Windows 8.1 models, Gentile thanked Patel for the generous donation, saying that it will help them keep and sustain their records more efficiently, a very valuable tool in their busy day-to-day operation. Budd Lake will continue to run and answer critical first aid and rescue calls on Dunkin Donuts, thanks to a good community and business partnership forged over morning coffee, appreciation and outreach. ing promotions that Disney offers on all their Destinations.

ew Jersey parents suffering with finding ways to pay for their childrens college education can finally get the solutions to their college funding problems. Most families who earn $75,000 or more and own a home assume they are not eligible for financial aid. However, most families with income over $100,000 are actually eligible for some types of need based financial aid. They simply need to know how to get their fair share. According to Newell, there are several easy things parents can do to substantially increase the amount of money they get from colleges. For example, There are several schools that historically give better financial aid packages than others, says Newell. If families do proper income and asset planning before filling out the forms, they can increase eligibility by thousands of dollars. Newell offers a few simple tips to parents with college funding problems. If a

Local Businesses Make It their Business to Interconnect With Area Chamber of Commerce
month. We try to break down the walls; dont be afraid; networking can be a good thing. The MOACC was formed in the 1950s and has grown in its membership and programs. What began with 15 members involved in Marketing in the Morning three years ago, has grown to 50 members. We are now over 100 members, says Stewart. The MOACC is one of the largest in the state, incorporating the greater Mt. Olive area as well as drawing in members from three other counties including Morris, Sussex and Warren. Four years ago, MOACC leaders changed focus to our members, explains Stewart. Its all about bringing value to the members. MOACC President Peter King says, the shift came and we looked at it as a business, came up with ideas and through that came the growth. The whole attitude changed, What can we do for you? Thats how you should run life. How can we help? Its going to come back to you. If you are going to help others, its going to come back to you. The MOACC turned its focus on how it can help the small businesses, start-up companies and larger corporations. Based in Mt. Olive, the Chamber then pushed out to reach businesses in Long Valley and Chester. A monthly Lunch and Learn business education series, held every fourth Tuesday, was added two years ago to discuss issues such as taxes and social media.

By Cheryl Conway weeting, texting, emailing and linking may be the in, but nothing compares to the face to face networking with a solid handshake and an exchange of a business card. Marketing in the Morning is a premier event of the Mt. Olive Area Chamber of Commerce (MOACC) and has been the best tool to connect businesses and share ideas. Held once a month, every third Wed. from 7:15 a.m. to 9 a.m., Marketing in the Morning celebrates its third year anniversary next month in April. The in-person business marketing meeting is open to all businesses and attracts atleast 50 businesses per meeting. The program allows businesses to network with other local businesses in a relaxed atmosphere to share ideas and methods of improving their service. Its all about building the network, says Greg Stewart, past president of the MOACC. We want folks to know what people do. We go out and meet with people. We try to promote businesses doing business together. Stewart says, We do push the fact of getting to know the people from other businesses rather than communicating through an email. Business owners swap cards at the Marketing in the Morning Program so they can connect and find ways to work together, talk about businesses and themselves. You dont have to be scared to network, says Stewart, with the loose but formal atmosphere of Marketing in the Morning program, which is at a different location every

A young Professionals Group began last year and is held monthly every second Thursday to help those under 40 to establish their business network. The MOACC found out what the larger employers needed and thus last year established the Business Executive Council, which is held quarterly for larger business executives to discuss businesses and projects, such as waste management, recycling, ride sharing and community service projects. Other events include an annual Breakfast with the Mayor; Annual Awards Dinner to recognize business person and humanitarian of the year, and present $1,000 scholarship to an outstanding Mt. Olive High School senior in the business program, set for June 10, at Centenary College in Hackettstown; Legislative Dinner with congressman and state senators in Sept.; and Holiday Dinner in December. While other local area chambers do exist, Stewart says the MOACC offers more events. Our focus is different, says Stewart, owner of Nexben Management business consulting firm in Mt. Olive. We have a wide variety of events. We work together as a business community. We work together business to business. We are small business owners and we try to promote that. Competitors could be complimentary, says Stewart. They could be of value to you. Web developers have partnered up to do business together; they refer to each other. As an all volunteer chamber, the MOACC volunteers its time to make it happen, says Stewart. We dont charge a lot of money to be a member, with basic membership costs

The challenge with volunteers is to make it succeed and continue on that path, says Stewart who chairs the MOACC Executive Business Council. The work the 11 board members put in is a little hidden; all that volunteer time that goes unrecognized. Goals are to continue the growth of Young Professionals, attract larger businesses, sustain membership and increase

from 100 members to 140, says Stewart, who has been involved with the MOACC for seven years, and the Morris County Chamber of Commerce for nine years. Although Stewart says, Im giving up business time to make this successful, all of his volunteer time with the MOACC has been worth it. Stewart had started his business in Morris Township and says I didnt know the talent we have in my backyard. He says he has found a very effective network

through MOACC, and its now become a primary resource. There are some outstanding people out here that without having a chamber I wouldnt have known about it. There are so many great folks I can partner with out here. With Marketing in the Morning businesses within the Mt. Olive area are finding business in the Mt. Olive area, and are tagging up to build web sites and enhance public relations, says King. You think you are working in a bubble. The recognition we get when we go outside, has been worth all the effort. Weve always been a member of the town, says King, Director of Marketing at paghetti Dinnner at the First Presbyterian Church of Stanhope, at the Fellowship Hall, on March 29,

Paragon Village in Hackettstown. Being involved in the MOACC, gives us another avenue to reaching into the town. As president, King says the plan for the MOACC is to continue the growth and the strength and tweak what we need to tweak. People want to learn what they dont know, what they dont know, they want to find out. The next Marketing In the Morning Program is set for March 19 at the Corner Pub in Flanders, and April 16 at the Hackettstown Regional Medical Center.

of Flanders, shared in the February service with the congregation. That service included a message by the District Superintendent of the Skylands District (of the United Methodist Church), the Rev. Steven Bechtold, a skit , A Purpose in Life , done by church members Peter Herbst and Antoine Gayles and the song, I Wont Take Less Than Your Love; sung by Ray Winch, who heads the churchs Sacred Bean Coffeehouse music ministry, There was a flag presentation. The scouts presented their charters and did scripture readings. In talking about the scouts, the churchs

pastor, Meekyung Kim, noted that the scouts have helped the church through various Eagle Scout projects and have been recognized for that. The John Wesley service award is awarded to those who did an Eagle Scout project [at] the Flanders United Methodist Church; several projects have been done by Boy Scout Troop 156. A recent project was done by Nick Maldarelli , Troop 249, who made an entrance ramp to the church. The project included breaking up a cement stoop and continued on next page

On Boy Scout Sunday in February, the Flanders United Methodist Church marked its special relationship with local scout troops.

Past Eagle Scout projects have included remounting the iron cemetery gate, reconstructing the thrift shop fence, building the thrift shop shed, and building a walkway to the west wing. There are many other projects that have been done including trimming thrift shop shrubs, and moving 1,500 items from a storage tent to the basement for the churchs annual Christmas boutique In reflecting on what it means to have the church be able to open its doors to the scout

troops it supports, Kim shared, I am grateful to serve the Boy Scouts and their leaders. I have noticed the tremendous work and efforts of the troop leaders. I hope and pray their efforts will be fruitful. She added, I would like to encourage young people to come to church so that they can feel at home in the church and to nurture them to serve the community. The church needs to open the door to young people and support them as much as we can. We need to give opportunities for them to feel their dignity as God's children and help them to transform the world,

I think it was a great idea, says Linda Nemeth, treasurer of the MOHS Swim Team Booster Club. The captains decide where they want to donate the money. They decide on Mount Playmore.

MOHS Swim Team Buys A Bench For New Playground

By Cheryl Conway fter 20 minutes of swimming laps, the Mt. Olive High School Swim team raised enough money to purchase a park bench for Mount Playmore playground being built at Turkey Brook Park in Budd Lake. On Jan. 30, 52 students from the MOHS Swim Team swam laps during their regular practice time at County College of Morris in Randolph for its Third Annual Swim-AThon. From the monies raised, the swim team donated $500 to Mt. Olive Recreation to sponsor a park bench for the new playground. The MOHS Swim Team has held a main fundraising event for the past three years to support its booster club, then allocates a portion to one main cause each year. The team captains decided that they wanted to

cant believe it is already March and the winter is almost over, maybe. What a winter it has been. It feels like the movie Groundhog Day. As I sit here writing this article (February 28th), I am yet waiting for the next storm (expecting a foot) and a storm after that. Enough already, storm after storm, no salt, complaints about roads and potholes. I promise you we are doing the best we can with the resources we have. I for one am ready for spring and summer. The cost to the Township of overtime and materials related to this years winter has forced me to add $300,000.00 back into the budget to make sure we have sufficient funds to make it through March, October, November and December. Fortunately, we

are in great shape financially and having to add money back into my budget will not result in any change on my pledge to have no municipal increase in taxes this year. Talking about Spring, I am really excited about all of the upcoming recreation events, but the 5k color run recreation is sponsoring this year is most exciting. Sounds like a great family event. Due to the weather, Mount Playmore plans have been pushed back a bit but I am really excited for the day that the playground is completed. It is sure to be a great addition to Mount Olive. One additional project we started looking at again from a feasibility prospective is a boardwalk adjoining a portion of Budd Lake. If we can accomplish the improvement, it is my hope

that it will help spur redevelopment along the lake portion of Route 46. I would personally like to thank all of the DPW and other Town Hall employees who have worked so diligently over these past few months. I look forward to next months article reflecting on the conclusion of winter and warmer temperatures. Until then, stay safe and warm. Sincerely, Rob Greenbaum, Mayor Mount Olive Township.

MOHS Swim Team. For this years fundraiser, swimmers raised pledges based on the number of laps they could swim in a 20 minute-time period. Most of the swimmers completed 40 to 69 laps, with various contributions from 1 cent per lap to a $1 per lap, or flat donations from friends, family and teachers. It was a continuous swim, describes Hamilton, who has been swimming since she was seven years old. Participants can choose whatever stroke, even the doggy paddle. Hamilton, a freestyler swimmer who swims the 500, swam 55 laps during the swim-a-thon. As part of the swim team for the past four years, Hamilton says her graduating class started the idea of allocating a portion of their fundraising to charities three years ago. We decided its so much fun, its for a great cause each year, says Hamilton. Its a great thing to go back to our town with. Last year, the team captains decided to contribute a portion of their proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project since one of the

senior swimmers on the team was heading to the Naval Academy for college. The previous year, the team gave to Progeria to sponsor Teen Zoe who had the rare genetic disorder that causes accelerated aging in children. The swim team decides on a set portion to donate based on the amount raised from its annual swim-a-thon. After reviewing the options to support the playground, they decided on the bench purchase. Mt. Olive Recreation has put together a Playground Component Sponsor Form so individuals or groups can contribute to Mount Playmore. Sponsorships include a $50 engraved picket; $100 garden shrub; $200 memorial tree; $250 attached bench; $350 game table; $500 free standing bench; $700 activity board; $1,000 table; $1,500 gazebo; and $2,000 component sponsor such as swings, slide or monkey bard.

By Cheryl Conway embers of the Sandshore Elementary School community are jumping for joy after raising more than $6,000 recently for the American Heart Association. Sandshore school students, in grades Kindergarten through fifth, jumped rope on Wed., Jan. 29, in the 35th anniversary of Jump Rope for Heart. Run by the American Heart Association, this was the second annual Jump Rope for Heart event at the school. Money raised through donations from the program goes to the American Heart Association towards research and education awareness of heart attack and stroke. Since students at Sandshore jump in January anyway as part of its fitness curriculum, why not raise money for a good cause while jumping? January is jumping month, says Kit Thompson, physical education teacher at Sandshore. Jump rope is an important part of our program; a natural fit for our curriculum. During the month of January, students learn jumping techniques, different skills with jumping and tricks with using a jump rope. Held on the last Wed. in January as the culminating jump rope activity for the month, students wore red for heart day as part of a week long Sandshore School Spirit Week. On that day, each grade reported to the gym during its 46-minute special and participated in activities at various stations. The school nurse had a station to educate the students about the heart and how to listen the heart. Students also learned different jump rope techniques such as long jump, individual and partner rope tricks, vertical jump, standing broad jump and agility jump patterns. Students got to set their personal best in their own personal number of jumps rather than making it a contest, says Thompson. As part of the program, students in grades third through fifth had the option to collect donations for the American Heart Association by creating online accounts. Students created e-cards with a picture of them jumping and sent them to family and friends asking for donations. Some jumped in honor of a loved one who has been a victim of a heart attack or stroke. You could jump in honor of someone who is dealing with heart problems or is recovering, or in memory of someone who died from heart or stroke, says Thompson. So many people know someone who has relative with a heart issue, or has a heart attack or stroke, says Thompson. Its a perfect fit for what were doing. It just reach-

Sandshore Students Jump To Raise Money For Heart & Stroke

es so many people. Thompson even participated and collected donations in honor of her late mother who had survived three heart valve transplants. I raised money in honor of my mom, who died much later at the age of 88. Through their efforts, the Sandshore School community raised $6,263 in this years Jump for Heart. The highest contributors were two students that each raised $300. Last year, only fourth and fifth graders asked for donations raising $2,042, says Thompson. In appreciation for its efforts, the American Heart Association gave Sandshore School lesson plans for its teachers as well as resources, jump ropes, t-shirts and collectible ducks for a small donation. Students who raised $5 receive a red, white and blue duck- Quack, the life saving duck to remind them of the warning signs of heart attack and stroke; a black Ninja duck if more than $5 is raised on-line; and a Mr. Cool duck wearing a shirt that says I love PE if more than $75 is raised. We had duck days, says Thompson, who only handed out the popular ducks one day a week to the students. Although students are practicing their jump roping skills in January, the core of the program is education of the heart. We are learning how the heart works, how to keep the heart healthy, says Thompson. A jump Rope for Heart coordinator even comes in to teach Thompson and the nurse hands only CPR with just chest compressions and counting without the breathing segment. Jumping rope is also a great cardio exercise that keeps the heart strong, builds bones and improves agility. We learned that if you jump five to seven minutes, that equals running a mile, says Thompson. While January is set for jump roping, Sandshore students do jump all round as part of their warm-ups for activities and fitness. Students seven to 12 need to build their bones, need to do that with weights, says Thompson. You want to build your bone bank early. One way to do that is by jumping rope. Jump roping is weight bearing, building muscle strength and the bone bank, endurance, cardio, timing and a great respiratory work out with very little equipment. Thompson says, It takes timing and coordination. Kids dont jump rope. I have to teach them how to jump. Ive developed different techniques to get them up and jumping. On Mon., Feb. 24, Thompson attended a Jump Rope for Heart seminar at the New Jersey Conference for the Alliance of Health at the Convention Center in Long Branch, and learned new ideas to incorporate in the jump rope program. I learned how to get into Double Dutch jumping - which is jumping while two ropes are turning at the same time. You need a good set of turners and jumpers. Jumping and turning are two different skills. The fifth graders are learning how to Double Dutch jump now and the new technique will be incorporated in next years event, says Thompson. The current record for longest jump rop-

ing at Sandshore School is 20 minutes for fifth graders, and 16 minutes for fourth graders, says Thompson. In June, the fourth and fifth graders will have their Jump Rope competition as part of their end-of-year field day. Jumping rope even improves reading skills. Kids are developing jump rope rhymes to help them develop their reading, says Thompson. All you need is a jump rope, says Thompson. refreshments are free. There is a good will offering for the artist of the evening. Family friendly. For more info, go to The season finale will be Sat. Apr. 5, 2014, celebrating Dave Murphy and Friends!

Flanders Shoprite Hosts Largest Cookie Display

the space. The massive arrangement of cookies took 100 man hours to build and was constructed when the sun went down and the store was closed, says Foster. Using 2,500 hundred cases or 30,000 packages, the exhibit showcased a minimum quantity of 630,000 tasty morsels up to as many as 720,000 cookies! The display was not only to recognize Nabiscos birthday, but to also introduce its three new flavors featuring dulce de leche, mint chocolate chip and root beer float. Also displayed were other favorites such as original, original chewy, filled creamy, mocha chunk and its peanut butter cup line. During the display that went from Feb. 22 to March 1, ShopRite customers were amazed by the size and selections offered while taste-testing the new flavors to find their favorite, says Foster. The store held demonstrations to draw in customers as well as activities such as a cookie stacking contest and ice cream sundae making. With significant discounts on cookie purchases, its no surprise that 126,441 cookies have left the building! says Foster.

By Cheryl Conway ustomers at the Shoprite in Flanders could not believe their eyes last month when they saw thousands of cookies piled high and deep at their grocery store. The ShopRite of Flanders had the honor of hosting the Worlds largest display of Nabisco cookies to celebrate Chips Ahoys 50thBirthday. The display was built Friday, Feb. 21, and was up for more than a week. While the sale of the cookies was recognized in all participating Shoprite stores, the Shoprite in Flanders was the only store to host the giant display. The ShopRite of Flanders was chosen because of the reputation of RoNetco Supermarkets and their innovative approach to marketing, says Christine Foster, Communications & Training Coordinator of RoNetco Supermarkets in Ledgewood. RoNetco Supermarkets owns and operates ShopRite stores in Morris, Sussex and Warren counties. On Friday, Feb. 21, after store hours, about eight people spent more than nine hours to set up the huge display. Nabisco helped with the design and the grocery management team chose the plan and cleared

Texting & Emailing Tips, No Crime In Morris County

crime was solved through Crimestoppers. Through Crimestoppers, the media will publicize information about a crime and someone can place anonymous tips with the most secure methods whether through phone call, texting or an online submission form. Participants will be given a code number which is their only connection to the case. Texting was added two years ago to keep up with the advancement in technology. Were constantly reinventing how we get out to the public, says Sette. We are trying to upgrade through the internet. Now you can text, call or email. As technology changes, we are evolving. Our intent everyday is to get more and more people to participate. If you see a crime, you can report a crime without getting involved. Once received, tips are then turned over to law enforcement, says Moses, who created the Crimestoppers website in June 2010 to help spread the word about the local Crimestoppers program. We work with county, state and local agencies, prosecutors, chiefs of police, federal agencies, secret service and FBI. Information is all we give them and then they turn it into an investigation. Submitters may be entitled to a $1,000 cash award, say officials, and at the same time do not have to fear being identified. Not one persons identity has been compromised in the last 26 years, says Moses. The phone calls are transmitted through a one wire telephone with no electronic devices whatsoever, Moses explains. Texting goes through an encryption of military grade and the submission form goes through 47 random servers. Theres no way to track it back. Its very secure. Sette says, When you call us, its totally anonymous. We give you a code number. The only person to know the identity of the caller or texter is the reward deliverer, Sette himself. Less than one half want the reward, says Moses. They just want to solve crime. About 20 percent claim the reward, says Sette. All monies are raised through fundraisers sponsored by Crimestoppers, with no tax dollars involved. Its main fundraiser a cocktail party at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany every December- attracts about 500 people with $25,000 raised annually. People need to know that we are here, says Moses, so when they see something they can call or text and not worry about repercussions or going to court. In Morris County alone, there have been 2,000 arrests through tips received by Crimestoppers, says Sette. There have been a tremendous amount of arrests that wouldnt have happened if it werent for Crimestoppers, says Sette. Its a great program. The bad guy is always looking for police, rather than looking to see if citizens are around. The program has been well received. During its first year, when Roxbury High School was bombarded by bomb scares in Morris County Sheriffs 1986, Crimestoppers received an anonymous phone call that led them to the arrest of the bomb-threat caller, describes Sette. Another crime reported through the local Crimestoppers involved the arrest of a high school student who set fire to the Sizzlers Steak House in Rockaway years ago. The fire had been deemed electrical until the anonymous call was received with the real cause of the fire, says Sette. Most of the crimes reported, about 60 percent, in Morris County through Crimestoppers have been drug related crimes, officials say, but have run the gamut from locating fugitives, to theft and counterfeit money. We generally receive cases involving the use or sale/use of controlled dangerous substances, says Det. Sgt. Lou Sanchez, Investigations Division of the Mt. Olive Twp. Police Department. On occasion we

By Cheryl Conway yes, ears and a cell phone is all one needs these days to help solve crimes in Morris County. In existence since 1986, Morris County Sheriffs Crimestoppers recently added anonymous texting and a submission form so witnesses can have even easier access to report a crime while remaining unidentifiable. The information gathering agency through the Morris County Sheriffs Department works with law enforcement, the public and media to solve various crimes. While some nearby towns were recently ranked as one of the safest communities in New Jersey, law enforcement can not be alone in crime reporting. Partnering with citizens can only raise the bar on maintaining safe communities. There are 487,000 sets of eyes and ears in Morris County that can help law enforcement, says Greg Moses of Dover, commissioner of Morris County Sheriffs Crimestoppers. Law enforcement cant do it alone. Information is the only thing that helps to solve crimes. Involved with the program since Morris County started using it 28 years ago, Moses says Crime never goes away. Each law enforcement agency can only do so much, yet crimes keep occurring. This to me is a very important asset into keeping the community safe. Crimestoppers began in 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when a young detective faced with several unsolved cases, especially one that involved the murder of a college student, believed information to solve the crime was available from someone other than the criminal. The local community, media and law enforcement publicized the first Crime of the Week and offered a cash reward to individuals that provided anonymous tips that would lead to the arrest. A call received resulted in the arrest within 72 hours of three men involved in the homicide of the young college student that had occurred four months earlier, according to Crimestoppers USA. Crimestoppers has grown world wide with programs in the United States, Canada, Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Australia, and the South/Western Pacific. Morris County was the first in NJ to start a Crimestoppers program, says John Sette of Morris Twp., chair of the Morris County Sheriffs Crimestopper board who helped establish the local agency with former Sheriff John Fox in 1986. Fox had been approached with the idea of Crimestoppers in 1985, by another county official whose daughter was attacked in her apartment while attending school in the northwest. Two days after her attack, the

also receive cases involving theft and driving while intoxicated. Sanchez says Mt. Olive receives approximately six to eight Crimestopper tips a year. Morris County Sheriff's Crimestopper program also has been pro-active with Mt. Olive in the past, such as with bank robberies, says Sanchez. They will send out a special Crimestopper upon our request and we then receive an influx of tips on that particular request. Most recently, Crimestoppers provided information through its program that assisted Mt. Olive with a theft investigation. The investigation was subsequently closed by arrest, says Sanchez. Mt. Olive has benefitted from the program right from its inception, says Mt. Olive Police Chief Mark Spitzer, a past president of the Morris County Police Chiefs Association. As a police chief I believe the intelligence information garnered from the program is important and valuable, says Spitzer. The program is of benefit especially because the sheriff is sure to advertise its existence in many ways. Everyone from Morris County knows of the system because Ed Rochford and the commissioners of the continued on next page

program spread the word regularly. Spitzer says the community can call police directly if they feel more comfortable but by calling into Crimestoppers the informant is assigned a number, as they advertise "no one will ask your name" and often the tipster is given a reward for their help. They have the option, says Moses. They can be socially responsible and they dont have to be involved. They are helping the community. Its a very good partnership. Its absolutely perfect. Call Crimestoppers at (973) Cop-Call or 1-800-Sheriff to place an anonymous tip; or go to to submit a secure submission form or send a text. If the information leads to the arrest or indictment of the responsible individual(s), up to a $1,000 cash reward will be received. Crimestoppers is a non-profit corporation in cooperation with the Morris County Prosecutors Office, Morris County Chiefs of Police Association, and the Morris Sheriff's Office. In emergency cases, always call 911 and not Crimestoppers. Monetary contributions can be sent to Morris County Sheriffs Crimestoppers, P.O. Box 192, Convent Station, NJ, 07961. All contributions are tax deductible. continued from previous page

works of art from several local artists in a variety of media such as watercolor, photography, etching, and pastel. New Jersey, with its rich colonial and Revolutionary War history, turns 350 years old this year having begun in 1664. It sports cities, suburbs, ocean access, rivers, farms, forests, and, in Sussex County, more black bears per square mile than in Alaska. It is a state rich in history as well as cutting edge fine arts, great schools and universities. It offers a wide range of culture from the beginning of our country to modern time. Come celebrate this wonderful anniversary and see firsthand an artistic interpretation of hen was the last time you walked through the woods after the sunset? An entirely new world awakens in the woods after the park gates close each night. A host of rarely seen nocturnal creatures come out for their nightly errands: flying squirrels glide between tree trunks, choruses of frogs sing from pools and marshes, bats and owls hunt on silent wings, and moths flutter around dimly glowing like white flowers.

And the training is, indeed, continuous for members of this team. The selection process includes physical testing; firearm's testing; a verbal test; SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) training course; and a medical screening. All current members succeeded through these phases before being chosen, and then recently a ceremony was held in which they were officially sworn in. They perform search and rescue missions, respond to crimes, emergencies, natural disasters, high-risk arrests, and threats of all kinds to the community. They provide dignitary protection as well, and work with the secret service upon request. Fluri explained that sometimes, nothing much happens during certain portions of the day. But other times, a true emergency exists - or great danger exists - and SERT members put their high level of physical, mental and intuitive skills to work. Fluri said, with the individuals on the SERT team, "integrity has to be a huge, huge part of our personnel." They have to want the job for the right reasons, he said. In the course of providing their service to the county, they are continuing to train, and provide coverage in discreet ways as SERT members did for the Super Bowl though they were in plain clothes and not known to members of the public. In Morris County, the emergency response team dates back to the early 1990s, though this is now the first time that all agencies in the county can participate, if selected. The team is on the path of continuous learning, Fluri said, noting that there are always new factors in our community and our world, and they have to continue to

By Ejvind Boccolini he brand new Morris County Sheriffs Emergency Response Team is now a county-wide effort, including law enforcement officials not only from within the Sheriffs Office, but those selected from law enforcement agencies around the county. Those individuals with the highest qualifications and skill level earned their place on this elite team, which now includes 16 selected officers, in addition to the 17 from the Sheriff's Office (from two different bureaus - the Bureau of Law Enforcement and the Bureau of Corrections) that were selected prior to the recent testing. The S.E.R.T (Sheriff's Emergency Response Team) Commander Eugene Fluri, was interviewed recently by the Morristown News about his background and philosophies behind this difficult law enforcement work. Fluri served 26 years with the state police, and retired as the regional commander (captain) in Troop B (northern New Jersey). Before that he was the station commander with the Marine Service Unit, in Port Newark, NJ, and previously a member of an elite emergency response unit in another region of New Jersey. He started his career by serving 10 years on the road as a New Jersey State Trooper. His extensive experience and training will lend itself well to the S.E.R.T. unit, and now Sheriff Edward Rochford is mentioning how honored he is to have Fluri as Commander. Fluri calls it a "unique opportunity" because this is a now county-wide effort and the first time Morris County has an emergency response unit like this one. "This team is brand new," Fluri said, adding that he likes the mentoring aspect. Fluri said his team has an excellent mix of veteran officers; individuals with military experience; young, aspiring officers; and former tactical officers all with the strength, stamina, and know-how to make for a

branch out, and observe and study what is new. SWAT teams have been around since the 1920s, but became more prominent in metropolitan areas and cities during times of civil unrest, particularly in the 1960s. In the past, they were referred to a riot squads. Fluri said there is a need for these teams, and they have to be governed and stay within the constitution.

Fluri said his team trains for "all threats, all emergencies, all crimes." In addition some tasks mentioned in this article, SERT members provide local law enforcement agencies with assistance against active shooters, search and rescue operations, floods and other natural disasters, and train weekly for responding to these calls.

hough Earth Day is synonymous with protecting the environment, the holiday can trace its roots to an environmental disaster that occurred in Southern California in 1969. Over a 10-day period that began on January 28, 1969 just six miles off the coast of Santa Barbara, Calif., roughly 80,000 to 100,000 barrels of crude oil spilled into the Santa Barbara Channel and onto the beaches of Santa Barbara County. Thousands of birds and marine animals, including dolphins, elephant seals and sea lions, were killed as a result of the spill, which at the time was the largest such spill to ever occur in United States waters (it is now the third-largest

spill after the Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010 and the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill). Though devastating, the Santa Barbara oil spill proved inspiring to Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, who is today considered the founder of Earth Day. Senator Nelson used the sense of social consciousness that prevailed throughout much of the UnitedStates in 1969 and the outrage at the Santa Barbara oil spill to infuse energy into a growing movement to raise awareness about air and water pollution. His risk paid off, as more than 20 million Americans took to the streets on April, 22, 1970 to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment.

Officials Get Beach Ball Rolling For Boardwalk in Budd Lake

agreed, but that project may be put on hold for now. The township already got over its first hurdle by receiving approval some time ago from the Highlands Council for redevelopment along the corridor of Route 46. The idea is for a boardwalk to stretch along Route 46, which is along the Highlands Zone, explains Greenbaum. Since the area is a Highlands Redevelopment Zone, the boardwalk may be limited to Only one-third of a mile, says Roman. Stretching the boardwalk to one mile would be ideal, but officials agree that any type of sidewalk construction along that area would improve its appearance and usage. The boardwalk would be a wooden platform on the lakeside of Route 46, similar to that of Lake Mohawk in Sparta, describes Greenbaum. Its purpose would serve as a beautification issue that would spur redevelopment on the westside of Route 46 and the dock area around Budd Lake, he says. Beautifying the area could attract new businesses to open on Route 46, officials say. New businesses coming into Budd Lake will make the lake an area where people want to go rather than a pass thru, says Greenbaum. Building a boardwalk would attract more businesses, agrees Roman. We have a lot of vacant properties. If we build, they will come. Some improvements near the beach would include a paved parking area near the club house to make it more attractive, accessible and easier to visit the beach, says Roman.

By Cheryl Conway ownship officials may be switching up their to do list with their improvement projects in Mt. Olive, placing the Budd Lake Beach Boardwalk and Redevelopment Zone as a priority over Flanders Park. After the discussion came up at the Feb. 25 Mt. Olive Twp. Council meeting, most officials were favorable of the idea. If approved, monies from the township budget will be moved from Flanders Park renovations to the Budd Lake Beach Boardwalk plan and Redevelopment Zone. In order to move forward wit the project, monies will be required to conduct an engineering study and expenditure analysis to determine if the idea of a Boardwalk at Budd Lake Beach is feasible. The conceptual idea with the budget would be to use funds that were geared toward Flanders Park Renovations, says Mt. Olive Twp. Mayor Rob Greenbaum. We need to do our homework, says Greenbaum, to discover if there are any deeds or obstacles to prevent the construction of a boardwalk. We need to determine the cost on how to do it. Councilman Alex Roman who serves on the Mt. Olive Twp. Open Space Committee brought the suggestion to the council to take the next steps by approving an engineering study and cost analysis for the boardwalk concept. Roman suggested that the council move the money allocated for improvements at Flanders Park to get the beach ball rolling on the Budd Lake boardwalk concept. Flanders Park has been in need of better fields, further trail development and an upgraded swing set, officials have

Providing a boardwalk would be a nice addition to those residents who want to utilize the beach but without touching the water or sand. Most people dont want to go into the water or on the beach, says Roman. I can easily see people walking down the boardwalk or fishing off the boardwalk. If the boardwalk can be stretched to one mile, people may be even able to jog it, he adds. At the same time, we dont want to take away from the businesses by too long of a boardwalk, says Roman. We are in the basic starting stages. We may have to change the Redevelopment Highland Zone to see if its feasible and how long it would take. The council approved the Mount Olive Highlands Preservation Area Land Use Ordinance in Dec. 2013 to adopt that zone since it is a Highlands Preservation Area. By the Highlands Council allowing Mt. Olive officials to use the redevelopment zone, we can make the property more valuable, concludes Roman.

Morris County Clerk Ann F. Grossi Brings Strong Management, And Excellent Legal Background To County
of Enforcement of the New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety, overseeing 5 offices and also 3 satellite offices. As an attorney, she is very well-versed in civil service, and union contracts negotiation and arbitration. She also served as counsel for several libraries in Morris County. As a freeholder in Morris County, she said the position gave me a full background for what the county does. Now, she has 34 individuals on staff not including the deputy. Grossi notes that the county performs a myriad of functions for its residents, some of which may be unknown to its community members. The many departments operate in a most effective way, working to keep matters in balance at all times. Things get done because the county gets them done, said Grossi, adding that sometimes not everyone knows that tasks are being successfully completed and that it is the county officials and employees that achieve this for its residents. I have a great staff here, Grossi said, thanking her officials and employees. Grossi noted that she wants to enhance

By Ejvind Boccolini ew Morris County Clerk Ann F. Grossi was surprised when she learned about a job opening for county clerk, but her ability to successfully earn this title was no surprise, due to her great legal and management experience. In an interview with the Morristown News recently, Grossi, who is serving a five-year term as clerk until Dec. 31, 1018, said she did not know that previous clerk Joan Bramhall (who served from 1999 to 2013) was going to retire, but instead thought that Bramhall may serve another five years as clerk. Grossi previously thought about the possibility of serving as county clerk, but noted that she had plans to run for freeholder again a job which she enjoyed very much. But when Bramhall retired, Grossi noted that the opportunity presented itself and came out of left field. Now, Grossi thanks her helpful and impressive staff for its efficiency, and will continue to offer strong, and excellent public service. Grossi also wants to bring the clerks office to a new level of technology and open a satellite office perhaps in the

Rockaway Townsquare Mall. Grossi said the clerks office is depository for legal documents - deeds, mortgages, trade names, and maps. It also issues passports, county ids, and veteran ids. Grossi herself has a strong legal background, having worked as an attorney with a private practice, and was a freeholder for 3 years in Morris County, on council in Parsippany, and served as council vice president. Grossi also worked for the state as Chief

and automate, within reason, more facets of the county. She also wants the community to know they are open for business. The hours are 8 am to 4:30 pm, Mondaythrough Friday, with Registry recording offered until 4 pm. There are hours on Wednesday until 7 pm for passports only, and the location of the County Clerks office is the first floor of the Administration and Records Building on Court Street in Morristown. Residents of any New Jersey county can use the passport service. Grossi said there are many ancient documents on file in the clerks office, and gave an example by showing the 1906 Morris County Manual. It lists towns, legislative districts, county offices, commissions, and newspapers. I think a lot of people call us about passports, she said, adding that the office collects recording and filing fees. She said, through our fees the state gets the lion's share, and added that the clerks office receives a fee for every document they file. In 2012, the clerks office generated $36 million, and in 2013, $50 million. The continued on next page

The clerks office also has an online document research facility, in which community members can perform an official records public search, and Grossi said the clerks office is launching facebook page. Grossi said she wants to move the clerks office into a new level of technology, and this will include electronic transmissions with respect to additional services that the clerks office offers. The clerks office is not yet ready to do deeds with e-filing, but otherwise the clerks office is operational with respect to e-filing. Were looking forward to getting that done, Grossi said, referring to the e-filing of deeds. Grossi also wants to have a satellite office in, perhaps the Rockaway Townsquare Mall, and wants to implement outreach passport services. They will look to have a caravan schedule advertised, in which there will be a mobile unit out in the field where people can take advantage of the services. Grossi said the clerks office was established in 1739, and is one of three constitu-

tional offices (county, sheriff and surrogate). It is established by statute, meaning that it is in the N.J. Constitution. As clerk, Grossi also performs weddings, and the clerks office tabulates the results of the election process. This is tradition, as is the way they decide what order the names of candidates within a given contest will appear on a ballot. They have a "hat box in which they put the name of each candidate (written on a piece of paper) inside its own tiny glass container. Containers are handpicked, randomly, and the first one handpicked gets on the ballot first, and so on.

The paragraph reads: Visit our office to get a passport, record and file land transactions, apply to become a Notary Public, get a County ID Card, or during election time, vote in person. Our goal is to continue the excellent public service youve come to expect from the Morris County Clerks Office.

By Cheryl Conway n an effort to clean up the appearance of Mt. Olive, local officials have introduced an ordinance that will control the use and placement of clothing bins scattered around town. The first reading of the ordinance was at the Feb. 25, Mt. Olive Twp. Council meeting, and the second reading with public comment and a vote was set for March 11. If approved, clothing bins will only be allowed on approved municipal property and must meet certain restrictions such as size, material, proper identification and regular clothing collections. With a proliferation of clothing bins throughout Mt. Olive, township officials want stricter rules on their placement and use, but atleast one official disagrees saying it limits the rights of business owners to control the use of their property. My administration has been working to improve the way it looks in Flanders and Budd Lake, says Mt. Olive Twp. Mayor Rob Greenbaum. To have all of these boxes all over the place, was not coinciding with the towns plan to clean it up. We had no ordinance for appropriate standards. The issue of limiting the placement of clothing bins to municipal properties had been brought up twice by the Mt. Olive Twp Zoning Officer prior to the introduction of the

Proposed Ordinance Limits Clothing Bins in Mt. Olive

proposed ordinance. Greenbaum says there is a proliferation or a lot of bins in Flanders and Budd Lake dropped off wherever. Made out of different materials and some with writing all over it, became really an eye sore, says Greenbaum. Some bins were placed in inappropriate places, could be dangerous in the way in which they are structured, have an overflow with clothing hanging out of them or are surrounded by bags left outside the box, or have become depositories for discarded items or other uncollected refuse, as stated in the proposed ordinance. Anyone can put a bin out anywhere, says Greenbaum, prior to the proposed ordinance. I can put one in my driveway if I wanted. Under the proposed ordinance, the clothing donation bin has been defined as Any receptacle or container made of metal, steel, or any other material designed or intended for the collection and temporary storage of donated clothing or other materials. The proposed ordinance prohibits used clothing bins in Mt. Olive Twp. with the exception of registered nonprofit organizations, which will be permitted to place used clothing bins at the Mt. Olive recycling center or at the townships emergency service locations, such as fire departments and first aid rescue squads located within the township. Permitted bins must be enclosed by use of a receiving door and locked so the contents can not be accessed by others; must be appropriately located and placed on the property without interfering with landscaping, parking, required setbacks, and any other site-plan approval requirements; must be smaller than six feet deep, eight feet wide and six feet high; must be regularly emptied to avoid overflow; and display on its exterior, name, street address and telephone number of the bin owner and other entity that is sharing or profiting from any clothing or other donations collected by the bin. Bin owners must also provide a statement on how the bin and its collected items will be used, sold, or dispersed, and the method by which the proceeds of collected donations would be allocated or spent. Fines ranging from $500 to $2,000 will be enforced if the criteria in the proposed ordinance are violated. At the Feb. council meeting, Councilman Alex Roman was in disagreement with the proposed ordinance. While 18 bins have been indentified by the zoning officer, Roman says the number is not increasing. Theres not a proliferation of them, says Roman, with 30,000 people in 30 square miles, 18 clothing bins is not proliferation. Also, the clothing bins have been placed in

commercial places that are vacant, such as the former Kens Barn. Others that are on business property, such as the Walmart parking lot, go unnoticed, says Roman. Im sure no one notices that its there, says Roman, in reference to the bin at Walmart. If Walmart wants those clothing bins on their property, thats their decision if they think that it helps their business. Although Roman agrees with some of the criteria of the proposed clothing bin ordinance such as proper placement, setbacks away from roadways, and maintaining an orderly bin without overflow, Roman says commercial business owners should have the right to place the bins on their property. Thats their business decision, says Roman. Who are we to say anything? Why can the fire department do it, while 711 cannot? If a gas station wants extra money and a company approaches with a request for a clothing bin or other fundraiser or money making idea, the gas station can get a percentage, explains Roman. The 711 puts out a DVD Rental Box for extra cash and a gas station puts out a soda station from extra income, explains Roman. A clothing bin does not take up that much space.

Page 30, March 2014, Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News Like us on facebook Its a tremendous honor, says Mike Behre, head coach of the MOHS Ice Hockey team for the past five years. Youll always be remembered as the 2014 Haas Cup Champions. Behre says, The kids finally got it. They finally executed dumping the puck in and beat the other team to the puck. Earlier in the season they were struggling to score goals. That changed. They had solid defense. We did well. The team made it to the finals of the Haas Cup only two times prior, in 2013 and 2000, after 40 years since the program began at MOHS. Behres reaction to the teams win was tears. For the nine seniors, this had been their goal since they started on the team as freshmen four years ago. We couldnt get it done last year. Im very happy for them. The MOHS Ice Hockey team- which consists of 23 players with nine seniors, six juniors, three sophomores and five freshmen then competed in states but lost in the first round on Mon., Feb. 24, 10-0 against Ramsey.

Last year, the team was ranked first in its division, held a 19-5-1 record, but fell short to winning the Haas Cup in the finals losing 3-2 against Park Regional; and losing 4-0 in the second round of states against Randolph. Behre credits last years experience to this years Haas cup win. I think the team was seasoned, says Behre. Last year they were in awe. We played in a packed house during the finals. He said the team knew this year when we get to the finals, weve been there before, we know what to expect, we know what the crowd is going to be like. Behre says the team had a different attitude this year. Despite the lack of practices and canceled games from the multiple snow storms during the season, Behre says the team did not lose focus. They went out and played tremendous on Feb. 7 against Madison winning 3-0 during the regular season. From that night the kids were empowered. Competitors in the Haas Cup must win three games to become champions, says Behre. Eight teams- five from the Haas Division and three from the Charette Division- are selected based on their regular season record to compete for the Haas Cup. To win in overtime was tremendous. At the championship game against

Madison, we were up 2-0 after the second period, explains Behre. Going into the third, boys played not to lose and Madison tied it up. Boys had this look like weve been here before, last year against Park Regional. During the overtime period, Behre says his team dominated. With 12 minutes and 33

ohn Pecoraro, Surrogate of Morris County, is running for re-election as Morris County Surrogate. Pecoraro, in his fourth term as County Surrogate, has announced his platform of maintaining a high and compassionate level of service while keeping his offices expenses low. Im a conservative. I believe you can do a lot with a little. Pecoraro said. Pecoraro, who became Surrogate in 1994 after a career in business at AT&T and has a Bachelors degree from St. Peters College and a Masters Degree in Mathematics from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The Surrogate Court is the place where wills are probated and guardians appointed. Im delighted to report to you that since you first elected me, the Surrogate Court has gone from the stone age to the information age. Pecoraro said. To start with, weve completely computerized the office and our written records are in electronic format, readily accessible and searchable for all. Our cutting edge web sitewww.morrissurrogate.comis such that you can search for and even probate estates on-line. Were open virtually 24 x 7. Pecoraro said. Most significantly, under his watch, the Surrogate Court has the lowest budget in all Morris County Government. For example, in 1994, we probated 1,800 estates per year. Today, we probate about 3,000 estates a year, with about the same number of employees. Pecoraro emphasized. Weve done the most with the least, while providing excellent and compassionate service, which is what you should expect from a businessman who has lived in this

MOHS will then get a replica to place in its trophy case, says Behre. Behre hopes the teams win will attract more students to come out for the hockey team in future years.

Fourteen are set to come back to the team next year to reach more goals. Intentions next year are to try and repeat, says Behre, why not, and be returning Haas Cup champions. Were just going to come back out, play the schedule, qualify for states, qualify for the Haas Cup and win.

Morris Plains Museum Association Prepares to Celebrate New Jerseys 350th Anniversary
lots of extra tours. The museum was founded in September of 1974 thanks to the former Borough Historian Muriel Rennie, and has been in several different locations. In 2005 the museum moved to its present location. Books and postcards are

orris Plains: The 350th Anniversary of the founding of the State of New Jersey has arrived with 2014. Even though a number of statewide activities are planned, the town of Morris Plains is busy getting ready for their own celebration of the areas history. The Morris Plains Museum is a treasure trove of history for area residents. The museum, located on the lower level and rear entrance of the towns Community Center at 51 Jim Fear Drive, just off Malapardis Avenue, is open every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (or for groups by appointment) and some of the special exhibits are already in place. As the Morris Plains Museum Association volunteers compile important dates in the history of the town to create a detailed timeline and photographic display, historic miniature scenes and a miniature house are already in place for visitors to enjoy. Hand-crafted by Ellie Arnould-Tomb, a new member to the association, the detailed miniature scenes provide a window back in time. The displays include a Turn-of-the-Century Doctors Office, a Wig Shop from the Colonial Period, a Prairie Home from the late1800s, a 1920s Kitchen and a Vegetable Stand from the World War II era. The full time line display should be in place before the end of February, but theres lots to see right now. Residents, and former residents, of Morris Plains can get a good feel for how the town started and grew over the years. Many artifacts, maps, documents and photographs from various time periods are already on display. Lucky visitors may even get a guided tour from the town historian, Dan Myers, if hes available. Dan stated that, the association members are looking forward to banner year and were prepared for

Morris Plains Museum volunteers Carol Mowder, Tia Ziagos (an archival specialist from Parsippany), Cara DelGaudio (a local high school student), Mary Everitt, and Larry Everitt sort through some of the hundreds of documents, photos and maps at the museum to decide on the best ones for the 350th New Jersey State Anniversary display to be finished by the end of February.

any people turn to home security to protect themselves from whats outside. Once inside their homes, most people feel safe as long as they can keep everything else out. What some dont consider is that they also need protection from things inside their homes. Many accidents occur within the safe comfort zone of ones home. The fatality rate for these types of accidents is second only to automobile accidents. Two of the five leading causes of fatal home injury are fire and accidental poisoning. Carbon monoxide is the top cause of poisoning deaths in the U.S. Since you cant smell or see it, this could kill you before you even know its there. The only way to ensure youre aware when dangerous levels

are present is to install detectors. Many home security companies offer this feature. They professionally install carbon monoxide detectors in locations most likely to detect the danger soonest. They ensure that you are protected against this toxic poison within your home. Another one of the top dangers of home accident fatalities is fire. This includes firerelated deaths from smoke. In fact, most victims die from the smoke or toxic gas, rather than the flames themselves. If a fire occurs, you may not be aware of it in time if you are not properly equipped. This can also be avoided with the help of home security companies. Their professional installers know where the highest risks of fire in the home are. They can install smoke and heat

Avoid Dangerous In-Home Accidents

sensors in locations nearest these fire hazards. This will give early warning of impending danger. When you are made aware of these dangers early on, you can call for emergency help and save yourself, your family and your home. With home security services, many systems would not only detect the danger, but also call emergency services for you. They give you direct contact with local police and fire officials. In an emergency situation your call for help will be responded to quickly and efficiently. Detecting danger and having the power to deal with it quickly is just another benefit of home security systems. Working with a reliable provider will keep you safe and offer peace of mind! Check out the many

services available. Most companies offer extra features and equipment to fit your personal needs. Protect yourself from people getting in, but also make sure youre protected from dangers already in your own home.
