Advisory

Uxbridge Police will out in force this weekend to combat Drunk Driving and encourage Seatbelt use. Happy Thanksgiving

In an effort to ensure residents are safe Here are some Thanksgiving safety tips:
Plan your trip and drive according to conditions- remember to have a passenger use the cell phone or utilize hands free utility! This largest traveled holiday accounts for the most fatalities.
Wear your seat belt!!! Seat belts are proven to save lives and prevent injuries.
Make sure children are secured in an approved child safety seat.
If you need to make a phone call, pull off the road and keep your call short.
Don't answer your cell phone while driving. Let your cell phone take a message and pull off the road to answer your calls.
Don't text and drive!!!
Don't consume alcohol!! Buzzed driving is the same as drunk driving.
Turkey fryers are for outdoor use away from combustible structures.
If the contents in a pot or pan catch fire, do not touch or try to move the pot or pan as you may spread the fire or burn yourself. Extinguish the flames with a metal lid or larger pot.
Never use water on a grease fire. Extinguish the flames with a metal lid or larger pot.
In the event of a fire or medical emergency, always call 911.
The Uxbridge Police will be out during this weekend doing additional enforcement patrols. Please drive sober and Buckle up.
We wish all Uxbridge residents a safe and happy holiday!
