Nevada County National Night Out

said on August 3rd, 2018 filed under: Cultural Events, Fun Things to Do Outdoors, Grass Valley, Lake of the Pines, Localism, Nevada City, Whimsy

National Night out August 7th 2018

Come celebrate national night out! All greater Grass Valley & Nevada City area residents & families are invited to join us at Dee Mautino Park (10609 Alta Street, Grass Valley) for this FREE, fun, and community building event! Come for the food, the activities, or just say hello to your police departments. National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes police community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer & better place to live.  At this year’s event there will be live music, free food, free games, McGruff the Crime dog, Fire engine & police car exhibits, and a COLOR FUN run for all the kids!

The event will run from 6-7:30pm on August 7th 2018. In past years, Nevada City & Grass Valley held two separate National Night Out events, but in order to get the community more connected, they are combing them this year. The hope for the event is to grow the connection between the community and its police departments, as well as community members to each other. Last year’s event drew over 300 people. Since this year is combined they are expecting more and therefore planning to cook over 600 hot dogs this year! Free ice cream cones are also on the menu.

The participating agencies include Grass Valley police, Nevada City police, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol, Nevada County Citizens for Safe parks and the Western Nevada County Recreation Services.

How to Stay Safe During Snow Storms

said on March 2nd, 2018 filed under: Alta Sierra, Colfax, Grass Valley, Localism, Nevada City

 

 

We’ve got a snow advisory on our hands, but we can handle it. If you’re new to the area or just feeling a little unsure, here’s some tips on what to do when bad weather hits.

 

1. Stay inside and stay warm.

2. Get pertinent news from local radio stations. In our area, 89.5FM and 830AM are good bets.

3. Be prepared to leave if you lose power or heat. Know where you’ll go and how to stay safe on the way.

4. Prepare an emergency kit with food, water, and medical supplies. If you need anything, judge carefully whether or not it is actually safe to go out to get it.

5. Bring your animals inside if possible and make sure they all have access to food, unfrozen water, and blankets

6. You can prevent pipes from freezing by leaving a couple of faucets trickling water. Not a lot, but enough to keep the water moving.

7. Make sure you have a dependable heating source and plenty of blankets. Wood stoves will keep you warm in a power outage, while propane and electricity may be less reliable.

8. Avoid driving unnecessarily. Even if you are comfortable driving in the snow and ice, others on the road are not. Just because you aren’t likely to crash does not mean others aren’t likely to crash into you.

9. If you absolutely have to go out, take precautions. Bring your phone, blankets, food, water. Let someone know where you’re going and when to expect you in case something goes wrong.

10. If you get stranded, stay in your car. When it’s safe, hang a bright cloth off your radio antennae and try to only turn your car on for ten minutes out of every hour to preserve fuel and battery life.

 

Mostly, just relax and try to stay at home. Play games, read, hang out with your family, and stay warm.

It’s just a storm; with a few precautions you’ll endure it just fine.
