Annual Altadena Station Food & Toy Drive


Yes, it is that time of year again.  We are now in full swing for the annual Altadena Station Toy/Food drive.  I have placed a clean trash can in the front lobby area to receive donations from all of you as well as the public.  Canned goods and Pastas are staples as well as Peanut Butter and stuffing.   Please take the time to look in your shelves at home and bring in some canned goods for the drive.  For the toys, gift cards and unwrapped toys are perfect to donate.  Let’s all do what we can to help those that are less fortunate than we are by donating either food, a toy or both.  Thanks in advance for your help!

 

Any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call or email, Thanks

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Modifies It's Safe Drug Drop-off Program

Advisory: Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Modifies It's Safe Drug Drop-off Program
 
The current Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) Safe Drug Drop Off program is being modified, effective immediately.  In the past, the boxes were not manned, and as a result, unauthorized items were often left in the boxes. These items, such as improperly packaged biohazardous sharps (needles) placed in erroneous receptacles, unidentified liquids, and even firearms, created safety concerns for LASD Narcotics Bureau personnel when they would empty the boxes.  Based on these safety issues, the decision was made to remove the boxes and have a one day drug take back event, sponsored by the stations each month.

All existing station drug collection boxes were labeled with a notice of removal and the process of removing the boxes from their current locations has begun.        

All pharmaceuticals and illicit drugs will continue to be collected by station personnel during a monthly take-back event day. Each station will identify one day during the month to provide the public with take back assistance.  On the designated day, deputy personnel will be present to monitor and identify the items being dropped off. There will be no questions asked and no criminal consequence if illicit narcotics are dropped off during the designated dates. This modification is necessary in order to continue to collect and dispose of drugs in a safe manner.      

The sharps/needle box will remain at each of the Sheriff stations and will be monitored by Los Angeles County Department of Public Works personnel. 

Each Sheriff’s Station will have a pre-set schedule identifying the designated dates on their Department website and social media sites (Nixle, Facebook, Twitter). The public may call their local Sheriff’s station for this information. For a list of stations click on the following link:
http://www.la-sheriff.org/s2/page_render.aspx?pagename=patrol_main

The public may also dispose of pharmaceuticals at any of the following collection locations:
 **The pharmaceutical disposal kiosks at Walgreens pharmacies, available during regular pharmacy hours (24 hours a day at most kiosk locations).
http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160725005180/en/

**The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) regularly offers drug take back events.  Consumers can visit the DEA’s website at the following link:

Community: Mt. Wilson Fire Update, 70% containment and forest closure order is lifted.
 
ARCADIA, Calif.; Oct. 26, 2017 – Angeles National Forest officials are terminating the area closure for the Wilson Fire effective Friday, Oct. 27. The fire remains at approximately 50 acres with 70 percent containment. Officials say the area, roads and trails in the vicinity of the Wilson Fire are open again because the potential for rapid growth has diminished.  
Jeffrey Vail, Angeles Forest Supervisor says, “The area is open again, but we encourage everyone to remain alert for possible hazards when in areas impacted by the fire or our response to it, such as rolling rocks and logs, dead standing trees and stump holes. Thank you for your support during the firefighting efforts on the Wilson Fire.”
Incident personnel will continue restoration work in the fire area to repair impacts to trails and other features in addition to mopping up and reinforcing firelines.
This will be the last update for the Wilson Fire unless significant activity occurs. For more information, see the forest website, www.fs.usda.gov/angeles, Twitter @Angeles_NF, Facebook and Inciweb https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5649/
