Oct 17 - What to do in an emergency? Register to receive emergency alert messages. Go to It takes a few minutes, but it could save a life. If you have a cell phone or digital landline and have not registered, your number will not be in the emergency call list. Entering your phone number and address will allow public safety officials to text, and/or call cell phones or landline phones in the event of an emergency. Also register your family members so they can receive alerts. You can also receive an alert about something occurring at additional addresses such as that of a family member’s residence, school or office. As part of the effort to increase registrations, a TEST message will be sent by the City of Sacramento Office of Emergency Services to all 72,000 current subscribers on Thursday, Oct. 19, at approximately 10:19 a.m. Sacramento County and cities in the county are also doing a test at that time. Signing up at is easy and information is protected. This is one account that could save your life. For more information, visit Read Post

Oct 12 - Distracted driving is a growing threat to public safety, particularly the safety of our young people. Texting while driving is now killing more teenagers than drunk driving, and texting is quickly catching up in every other age category. In today's Bee, I wrote about my confidence that we can persuade the public to think differently about distracted driving, just like we've done with drunk driving. Take a read, and share what you think. It is my hope that you'll join me in one simple act: take out your smart phone, open the settings and update the postscript that appears after emails you send. Mine says “Sent from my iPhone.” But for the month of November, it will end with the phrase “BUT NOT WHILE DRIVING!” This simple step will send an important reminder to friends, families and coworkers about the seriousness of distracted driving.
