Fawns in your yard in the Spring?

Hi Everyone!

In May through mid June the Doe Whitetail Deer will start to deliver their young ones,
Fawns, usually one or two may be born to one Doe and 3 is not that uncommon.

Residents finding one of these fawns should leave it alone, the Mother is near by and the Fawn is not lost.

Doe only feed their young at night, and leave them on their own
during the day. Fawns are born with out any scent and with the spots on their hides they use as camouflage, they will stay perfectly still and you can walk right up to them
and in most cases are able to pick them up.

However if they start bleating Mom is going to be coming like a freight train and Doe seem to be getting more aggressive, especially now that we have Coyotes in every community.

Dog owners should take extra care when putting them out at night to go potty as Mother Doe may have just given birth and she will be exceptionally aggressive towards dogs, believing they are Coyotes.

Fawns can be born anywhere and if Deer have been present in your area, owners need to be alert even when walking their dogs. Once the Fawns get to a point where they can keep up with Mom this aggressiveness usually subsides.

Homeowners planning on yard work, cutting grass or trimming hedges should take a moment a walk their yards to check for Fawns, when and where possible avoid them as they usually
move every evening.

To feed the Fawns must get up and go to Mom as not to leave a scent trail that predators such as Coyotes that could follow back to the young.

If a Fawn is found in a very poor spot that may cause hardship for an individual or the animal itself contact Animal Control an Officer can move the animal to another spot near the area where it was found, Animal Control will not take the Fawn away.

They are protected by State Law.

If a Fawn is found covered with flies again, contact Animal Control.

Non Emergency phone numbers for Animal Control: Castle Shannon, 412 279 6911
to request an Animal Control Officer.

Agencies Encourage SaferRide App use for Safe Rides Home
Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), Pennsylvania State Police and Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) are combining enforcement, education and smartphone technology to make this holiday season a safer one through “Operation Safe Holiday” and the SaferRide app.

During “Operation Safe Holiday,” law enforcement agencies statewide will focus on nighttime seat-belt use and impaired driving. The SaferRide app, developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, helps individuals arrange a taxi or contact a friend to get a safe ride home after drinking.

“Unfortunately, the holiday season turns tragic for many families due to crashes and deaths on our roadways,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “While we’re partnering with law enforcement and other safety partners, we urge the public to do their part to keep the season safe – always buckle up and never drive impaired.”

The operation begins with statewide Click It or Ticket seat-belt enforcement that runs from November 23 to November 30. Law enforcement agencies also will conduct sobriety checkpoints, roving patrols and regular traffic safety patrols on Thanksgiving Eve, November 25, and from November 28 through the New Year’s holiday to crack down on drivers impaired by drugs or alcohol.

According to PennDOT data, the holiday season continues to be the leading time period for traffic crashes. The Thanksgiving holiday period, including the weekends before and after the holiday as well as the day itself, experienced the highest number of crashes and fatalities of any major holiday season last year. A total of 4,311 crashes and 39 fatalities occurred statewide during the Thanksgiving travel period. The Christmas and New Year’s travel periods, including the weekend before Christmas, Christmas, the weekend before New Year’s, New Year’s and the weekend after, saw 4,184 crashes and 41 fatalities.

“In 2014 alone, there were 440 fatal crashes involving unbuckled occupants throughout the commonwealth,” said Acting State Police Commissioner Tyree C. Blocker. “This is just one example of how deaths from being unbuckled or driving impaired are, in many cases, preventable.”

Additionally, during the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays last year, 1,039 of the statewide crashes involved a driver impaired by drugs or alcohol, with 35 fatalities in those crashes. In that same period, there were 937 crashes with unbuckled occupants, with 32 fatalities in those crashes.

The public can help make the season a safer one by never driving impaired. Individuals can download the free SaferRide app on Android and Apple devices from the Google Play or iTunes stores. Once downloaded to a smart phone, the SaferRide app provides three simple options to a user: review and call taxi services available in the area, call a contact programmed into the app in advance and view a map of the user’s location.

The PLCB will spread the word about the app this holiday season on its websites, at Fine Wine & Good Spirits Stores, at licensed locations and through social media. Printed material distributed at Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores and posters made available to licensed bars, restaurants, hotels, taverns and other social settings feature a QR code that customers and patrons can scan using smartphones for direct access to a PLCB website featuring information about the SaferRide app and direct links to download it.

“For many years Senator Stewart Greenleaf has pursued a way to help ensure Pennsylvanians have a safe way to get home after celebrating,” said PLCB member Mike Negra. “Thanks to his encouragement and the federal government’s development of this app, we’re happy to spread awareness of the SaferRide app as a safe alternative to get home.”

The PLCB is also making available on its SaferRide app website a toolkit of promotional materials, including social media ads and web banners. Individuals and organizations interested in promoting the SaferRide app are encouraged to download these resources from the website and spread awareness through their own networks of partners, fans and followers.

The PLCB regulates the distribution of alcoholic beverages in Pennsylvania, operates more than 600 wine and spirits stores statewide and licenses more than 20,000 alcoholic beverage producers and retailers. The PLCB also works to reduce and prevent dangerous and underage drinking through partnerships with schools, community groups and licensees. Taxes and store profits – totaling more than $14.5 billion since the agency’s inception – are returned to Pennsylvania’s General Fund, and the PLCB also provides financial support for the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs, other state agencies and local municipalities across the state. For more information about the PLCB, visit www.lcb.state.pa.us.

The holiday seat-belt and DUI enforcement are funded by part of PennDOT’s statewide distribution of $6.5 million in NHTSA enforcement monies this federal fiscal year. For more information on PennDOT’s highway safety efforts visit www.JustDrivePA.org.

Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is an exciting time of year for kids, and to help ensure they have a safe holiday, here are some tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Feel free to excerpt these tips or use them in their entirety for any print or broadcast story, with acknowledgment of source.

• Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. Make sure that shoes fit well and that costumes are short enough to prevent tripping, entanglement or contact with flame.
• Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and trick-or-treat bags for greater visibility.
• Because masks can limit or block eyesight, consider non-toxic makeup and decorative hats as safer alternatives. Hats should fit properly to prevent them from sliding over eyes.
• When shopping for costumes, wigs and accessories look for and purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame resistant.
• If a sword, cane, or stick is a part of your child's costume, make sure it is not sharp or too long. A child may be easily hurt by these accessories if he stumbles or trips.
• Obtain flashlights with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.
• Do not use decorative contact lenses without an eye examination and a prescription from an eye care professional. While the packaging on decorative lenses will often make claims such as “one size fits all,” or “no need to see an eye specialist,” obtaining decorative contact lenses without a prescription is both dangerous and illegal. This can cause pain, inflammation, and serious eye disorders and infections, which may lead to permanent vision loss.
• Teach children how to call 9-1-1 (or their local emergency number) if they have an emergency or become lost.

• Small children should never carve pumpkins. Children can draw a face with markers. Then parents can do the cutting.
• Consider using a flashlight or glow stick instead of a candle to light your pumpkin. If you do use a candle, a votive candle is safest.
• Candlelit pumpkins should be placed on a sturdy table, away from curtains and other flammable objects, and should never be left unattended.

• To keep homes safe for visiting trick-or-treaters, parents should remove from the porch and front yard anything a child could trip over such as garden hoses, toys, bikes and lawn decorations.
• Parents should check outdoor lights and replace burned-out bulbs.
• Wet leaves or snow should be swept from sidewalks and steps.
• Restrain pets so they do not inadvertently jump on or bite a trick-or-treater.

• A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.
• If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
• Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
• Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters.
• Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.
• Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags.
• Carry a cellphone for quick communication.
• Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.
• If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic.
• Never cut across yards or use alleys.
• Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out driveways.
• Don’t assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will!
• Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.

• A good meal prior to parties and trick-or-treating will discourage youngsters from filling up on Halloween treats.
• Consider purchasing non-food treats for those who visit your home, such as coloring books or pens and pencils.
• Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Though tampering is rare, a responsible adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items.
• Try to ration treats for the days following Halloween.

Summer Safety Tips

Allegheny County Offers Safety Tips for Fourth of July Weekend

PITTSBURGH – Allegheny County Emergency Services and the Allegheny County Health Department today offered safety tips and information for residents on how to stay safe and avoid danger while enjoying the Fourth of July holiday.

Fireworks Safety

“As the Fourth of July approaches, Allegheny County Emergency Services is reminding residents to put safety first during their celebrations,” said Chief Alvin Henderson. “If you are celebrating with fireworks, please make sure they are legal in the area where you live, read all safety instructions on the packaging, and ensure that they are set off in a clear, open area.”
Fireworks and celebrations go together, especially during the Fourth of July. To learn about what the Fireworks Law is in Pennsylvania, visit www.alleghenycounty.us/emerserv/firemar/fireworks.aspx.
Fireworks can be dangerous, causing serious burn and eye injuries. If fireworks are legal where you live and you decide to set them off on your own, be sure to follow these important safety tips:
• Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks.
• Read and follow all warnings and instructions.
• Be sure other people are out of range before lighting fireworks.
• Only light fireworks on a smooth, flat surface away from the house, dry leaves, and flammable materials.
• Never try to relight fireworks that have not fully functioned.
• Keep a bucket of water handy in case of a malfunction or fire.
Food Safety
“Celebrating the holiday with family and friends often includes a cookout for many Americans. It is important to remember a few simple food safety tips while planning your meal to ensure that all guests enjoy a barbeque of properly prepared foods,” said Dr. Karen Hacker, Director of the Allegheny County Health Department.
This is the season for barbecues, but the key to preventing food poisoning is good personal hygiene, along with temperature control and adequate cooking of potentially hazardous foods. The person preparing the meal, and cooking, should be certain to wash their hands. Not only is hand washing important before preparing foods, but also between handling raw and ready-to-eat foods to prevent cross-contamination or the transfer of bacteria. Washing with soap and warm water is best, but if neither is available, take moist towelettes with an antiseptic.
Meat, poultry and seafood should be cooked thoroughly and the best way to know if these foods have been cooked enough is to check their temperature with a meat thermometer. Safe cooking temperatures are 145 degrees for all whole cuts of meat, with a three-minute rest time before carving or consuming; 145 degrees for seafood; 160 degrees for all ground meats, including hamburgers; and 165 degrees for poultry. Hot dogs and other processed or precooked meats such as kielbasa should be reheated to 145 degrees.
Don’t have a meat thermometer? Follow these guidelines but remember they’re not as reliable as temperature as an indicator of doneness: beef and pork should be grilled until all the pink is gone, poultry until there is no red in the joints and fresh fish until it flakes with a fork.
Use different plates and utensils to carry raw meats and cooked meats to and from the grill so bacteria-laden juices left on the plate from raw meat don’t come in contact with and contaminate cooked meat. Once perishables such as meat, poultry, fish and any foods containing eggs or dairy products are cooked and served, any leftovers should be kept below 40 or above 140 degrees. If these foods can’t be kept hot or cold, they should be thrown out after two hours.
Make sure you have a well-insulated cooler with plenty of ice and take along a refrigerator thermometer to make sure the cooler keeps the temperature below 40 degrees. Store food in watertight containers. Keep the cooler out of the sun and use a separate one for beverages.

Swimming Pool Safety

Americans swim hundreds of millions of times in pools, oceans, lakes, rivers, and hot tubs/spas each year. Most enjoy, but it’s important to be aware that drownings can occur, particularly in children if there is not proper adult supervision or there was no barrier, such as a fence, between themselves and the water.

Most drownings involving children and adults, as well as general pool-related injuries and infections, can be prevented by taking the following precautions while enjoying residential or public swimming pools:

• Closely watch swimmers in or around the water. Designate a responsible adult who can swim, knows CPR and is not distracted by any other activity while watching children. Never leave children, even those who can swim, unattended in or around a pool. Keep a safety buoy at poolside and a first aid kit nearby.

• A fence or barrier at least five feet high should surround a permanent backyard pool, preferably without using the house as a barrier on any side. Gates should be self-closing, self-latching and open outwards, with the latch out of a young child’s reach.

• Barriers and fencing are particularly important for large inflatable pools that often have flexible sides which make it easy for little kids to climb into the pool.

• Learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if you own a residential pool.

• Don’t leave toys and floats in the pool that can attract young children and cause them to fall in the water when they reach for such items.

• Because every second counts when a child slips under water, always look for a missing child in the pool first and don’t waste precious time looking anywhere but in the pool.

• Don’t rely on water wings or toy flotation devices as life preservers for children.

• Keep tricycles and other riding toys out of the pool area.

• Don’t allow running on the deck, pushing into the pool or dunking.

• Never slide headfirst or dive into an above-ground pool.

• Don’t dive from a pool deck unless the water is at least five feet deep.

• For maximum safety never dive from a diving board unless the water is at least 11 feet deep.

• Teach children to respect lifeguards and follow the rules at public pools.

• Remove contact lenses before entering the water to reduce risk of eye infection.

• Drain and clean backyard kiddie pools after each use to minimize the risk of infection.

• Keep sick kids out of a pool, even if it’s filtered and chlorinated, especially a toddler still in diapers or one not yet toilet trained. Adults should also stay out of the water until well after they recover from diarrhea or other illness.

• Stay out of the pool and off wet ground when thunder or lightning approaches.

• Pools don’t mix with alcohol or drugs. Be extra cautious with anyone under the influence.

Each year, there are an increased number of calls related to swimming pool chemicals which can become a hazard when wetted or improperly mixed. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, news media reports over the last five years show a significant number of fires, toxic vapor releases and personnel injuries in which pool chemicals were a factor.

Residents with pools are encouraged to follow these tips for save handling:

• Educate yourself about pool chemicals - read product label and directions before each use and follow manufacturer’s instructions

• Never unseat more than one container at a time and never mix different types of pool chemicals together; do not mix old and fresh chemicals, even if they are the same product

• Use only pool chemicals in original, labeled containers – never use a chemical from an unlabeled container

• Use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and keep that equipment clean and available for use

• Use dry tools to handle pool chemicals; use a separate, designated tool for each pool chemical - never use a tool or piece of equipment for more than one chemical

• Wash hands after working with pool chemicals

• Keep children and animals away from pool chemicals

• Add pool chemicals to water, not the reverse

• Respond to pool chemical spills immediately

• Never smoke while handling pool chemicals

• Do not store or consume food or beverage near handling locations

• Never pour chemicals down the drain or sewer; contact your local hazardous waste disposal facility for more information

Heeding just some basic safety tips this summer could help to keep you and your companions in full-blown vacation mode. Dust off your grill, pull out the patio furniture, grab your swimsuits, and enjoy the lazy days of summer!

Traffic Pattern Changes on McRoberts Rd at Grove Rd

Dear Resident,

The Borough is planning changes to the traffic pattern in your neighborhood and we want to make you aware.

The intersection of Grove Road and McRoberts Road has been the site of many reportable crashes.
(Reportable crashes are those which include any type of injury and/or require towing of any involved vehicle.)

Over the years, the Borough has employed several measures in an attempt to mitigate the crash history at that intersection.

-A mirror was installed on the southeast corner to improve sight distance.
-A guide rail on the northwest corner was modified in style for improved visibility.
-Signs have been installed for eastbound traffic to warn of cross traffic ahead.
-A flashing red light was added to the westbound Stop sign warning for left turns and for traffic to yield for uphill left turns.
-A sign posted at the southbound Stop sign warns of uphill traffic having the right of way.

The Borough is employing a traffic engineer to study the intersection, but it is apparent that southbound traffic on McRoberts Rd has limited sight distance.

75-80% of crashes at the intersection include vehicles attempting to traverse Grove Rd heading southbound.

While the engineers conduct an analysis of the crash history and the intersection, the Borough is compelled to take immediate action to assure motorist safety.

To that end, effective April 1, 2015 McRoberts Rd southbound traffic will be restricted to Right Turns Only for a 90 day trial period.

While this may add some traffic to other arteries temporarily, it is likely to reduce “cut through” traffic, attempting to bypass Rte 88 in the neighborhood.

Your indulgence and patience are appreciated while this process takes place.

Questions or comments may be directed to Chief Truver at the contact information below.
Thank you,

Thomas Hartswick, Borough Manager

At least $5 million lost in IRS telephone scams, warning reissued

WASHINGTON (WJLA) – When the law enforcement agency that oversees the Internal Revenue Service warned in the spring of 2014 of the "largest-ever phone fraud scam targeting taxpayers," it did not realize the 20,000 victims would be just the tip of a growing iceberg.

As of today, close to 300,000 consumers have reported to the Treasury Inspector General for Taxpayer Administration, or TIGTA for short, that they've been contacted by callers claiming to be from the IRS. As we head into tax season in 2015, 12,000 people are complaining to TIGTA about the IRS impersonation scam every single week. At least $14 million have been reported to be extorted by criminals, and the actual number may be twice that high.

Even one of the chief investigators fielded a call at home. How much did he supposedly owe the IRS in back taxes? $750 for Tim Camus, deputy treasury inspector general for investigations. And he was told if he didn't pay right away, the caller would send the police to his door.

Some people have reported that the caller followed through on that threat. When the caller reaches out to police, he or she pretends to be the homeowner, and creates confusion and fear at some innocent taxpayer's front door.

How much does Karen Rhodes of Gaithersburg, Md. need that kind of pressure?

"Like I need a hole in the head," she said.

Rhodes holds on to her disability check tightly and knew she didn't owe the IRS money. But the impostors have been persistent, calling twice in one week to insist that a warrant would be out for her arrest.

"Please, I have a degree in accounting from the University of Maryland," she said wryly, while sitting below her framed diploma. "I took a special interest in audits."

TIGTA warns that callers who commit this fraud:

- Call out of the blue, without sending letters first

- Use threatening language, which an IRS representative is not supposed to do

- Often have heavy accents associated with international phone banks

- Use common names and fake IRS badge numbers

- Know victims' personal information, like the last four digits of a Social Security Number

- Rig the Caller ID number to appear as if it's the IRS calling.

If you do owe federal taxes, or even if you are uncertain, you are advised to call the IRS at 800-829-1040. If you believe you've been targeted by this scam, report the incident to the Federal Trade Commission at www.FTC.gov. Make sure to include "IRS Telephone Scam" in your complaint. And report the incident to TIGTA at www.treasury.gov/TIGTA or call (800) 366-4484. There are five TIGTA staff members dedicated solely to handling complaints arising from this fraud.

Rhodes called 7 On Your Side because she wanted to spread the word before anyone else is duped.

"Hopefully, these folks have barked up the wrong tree this time," she said.

Deputy Inspector Camus is concerned that the impostors will ramp up their calls as tax season approaches. He says the scam works because it preys on people's fear of the IRS. Stopping it is his agency's top priority in 2015.

Special Needs Registry for Residents of Castle Shannon

Dear Allegheny County Resident:

In order to assist county residents, the Department of Emergency Services has developed a Special Needs Registry which provides information about residents who have special needs that would be helpful for emergency responders to know when responding to a home.

Any county resident who requires additional assistance due to special needs during a police, fire or medical emergency may submit information to the registry. This can include:
• individuals with autism
• those who are deaf-blind
• those who have intellectual disabilities
• individuals who have physical challenges
In the event that the person with special needs is unable to submit information on their own, a person who is authorized to act on their behalf may do so.

This is a voluntary registry.
The information provided will be shared with 911, fire, police, EMS, emergency planners and first responders in times of crisis.

URGENTECHELP Computer SCAM continues... (Originally posted 8-30-13)

URGENTECHELP Computer SCAM continues...
(Originally posted 8-30-13)

Castle Shannon Police have taken reports from residents who report the following SCAM.

They receive an unsolicited phone call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft. The caller tells the resident that their computer has been compromised/"hacked" and that they should go to a website and allow the caller access to their computer.

Both callers complied and watched as the actor manipulated computer settings on their PC, allegedly to "clean" the unit.

The callers were then billed for this "service". The bill shows up as a company called Urgentechelp. (Please Google the name for a history of fraud)

Microsoft does not monitor every computer, nor do they have the capacity to do so. This is a SCAM and beside the cost, allowing anyone access to your PC leaves you vulnerable to identity theft and unauthorized access to other personal information.

CSPD has consistently warned residents to be wary of unsolicited phone calls. if this happens to you, please hang up and/or call CSPD by dialing 911

The "One Ring" Scam

The Better Business Bureau is warning about a new scam that can rack up unauthorized charges on your monthly cell phone statement.

It's called the "One Ring" scam, because the people behind it call your cell phone, let it ring once and hang up.

If you call back, you can be charged $20 for an international call fee and per-minute charges for "premium service," which can be $9 per minute or more.
Calls usually come from numbers outside the U.S.

A Cleveland woman who reported the scam told the BBB her caller ID indicated the call originated in Antigua or Barbuda (268). Other consumers across the country report calls from the Dominican Republic (809), Jamaica (876), British Virgin Islands (284) and Grenada (473).

The practice of a third party putting unauthorized charges on your bill is called "cramming."

The Better Business Bureau says, if you don't recognize the number on your caller ID, don't pick up and don't call back.

Also make sure you check your monthly statements. If you see something you don't recognize, contact your carrier immediately. The earlier the fraudulent charge is detected, the better your chances of having it removed.

Sheraden Healthy Active Aging Center 720 Sherwood Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15204 412-777-5012 July 15 & 16
8:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.

All county residents ages 60 and older are also welcome to visit any of the county-funded senior centers during regular hours of operation to socialize and enjoy activities while taking refuge from the heat. For a list of all Allegheny County senior centers, visit www.alleghenycounty.us/dhs/seniorcenters.aspx.

AAA also encourages everyone to be particularly mindful of seniors as the temperature rises. The agency and its contracted providers will maintain contact with frail, isolated and high-risk seniors who are registered for care management with AAA. Care managers will respond to emergency needs as they arise, making sure that seniors are safe and stable.

However, not all seniors are registered for care management with AAA. Therefore, neighbors, friends and relatives are asked to check on seniors during periods of high temperatures. The following tips are offered for those who plan to visit seniors:

• Offer a glass of water or a non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated beverage. Sit with them as they drink it. If plain water is boring, try one of the no-calorie fruit flavored waters.
• Check for breathing difficulty or other signs of distress, such as swelling of the ankles or disorientation. Seek medical attention if needed, or call a medical professional for advice.
• Check to see that window air conditioning units are operating and in good condition. If there is no air conditioning, make sure there is good cross-ventilation aided by fans.
• Check that they are eating. If they are not due to lack of appetite, try offering light protein-laden foods, such as fully cooked eggs, cottage cheese or lentils.

If seniors resist visits, encourage them to agree to a few phone calls each day, but pay attention to whether they sound alert, and if they can tell you which medicines they have taken. If they are willing, invite them to stay with you for a few days until the difficult weather passes.

More tips for keeping cool are located on the Allegheny County Department of Human Services website at www.alleghenycounty.us/dhs/cooling-tips.aspx.

Health Department Urges Special Precautions for Certain Risk Groups

The Allegheny County Health Department is warning that the heat and humidity forecasted for the next few days may pose serious health problems for the elderly, infants and children up to the age of four, as well as the overweight, people who work or exercise outdoors, and people with heart or respiratory problems.

Heat-related illness occurs when the body’s temperature control system is overloaded. The body normally cools itself by sweating. However, sometimes this cooling mechanism breaks down, and body temperature rises rapidly, triggering heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Heat exhaustion is the body’s response to an excessive loss of water and salt due to sweating. Warning signs include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, fatigue, dizziness, headache, nausea or vomiting and fainting. If symptoms are severe, or the person has heart problems or high blood pressure, seek medical attention immediately. Otherwise, help the person cool off. Seek medical attention if the symptoms worsen or last longer than one hour.

Heat stroke, a more serious and potentially life-threatening condition, occurs when the body is unable to control its temperature, and the sweating mechanism fails. Warning signs may include: extremely high body temperature (above 103° F); red, hot and dry skin, due to no sweating; rapid, strong pulse; throbbing headache; dizziness; nausea, confusion; and unconsciousness. Death or permanent disability may result without emergency treatment. Cool the victim rapidly by any means available until paramedics arrive.

Additionally, the following precautions are recommended to minimize the risk of heat-related illness:

• Stay cool indoors, preferably in an air-conditioned environment. Fans do not help much when temperatures are in the 90s. A cool bath or shower is a more effective way to cool off if you do not have air conditioning. Better yet, visit a place that has air conditioning, such as a senior center, theater, mall or neighbor’s house.
• Drink plenty of fluids – at least eight cups a day - but not alcoholic or caffeinated drinks, which actually cause the body to lose more fluids. Avoid hot foods and heavy meals, which add heat to your body.
• Wear lightweight, light-colored and loose-fitting clothing. A wide-brimmed hat provides shade and helps keep the head cool. Sunscreen can prevent sunburn, which can affect your body’s ability to cool itself and also cause a loss of fluids.
• Avoid strenuous physical activity, particularly during the hotter part of the day.
• Never leave a child, or a pet, in a vehicle alone on a hot day. A child may become disoriented in just five minutes, unconscious in 10 minutes, and brain-damaged in 20 minutes.
• Use the buddy system and check on the elderly and the infirm who do not have air conditioning and are less able to take care of themselves.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention have additional extreme heat safety tips and information at www.bt.cdc.gov/disasters/extremeheat.

The effort will focus on areas where seatbelt compliance has the best chance of being increased:
Nighttime Drivers
Occupants and Drivers under 18
Pickup Truck Drivers
Roadways experiencing the highest numbers of unbuckled crashes/fatalities

Law Enforcement Agencies will take a ZERO TOLERANCE on all safety belt violations and conduct most of the enforcement at night.

Man accused of breaking into tavern,
opening beer tells officers,
‘I was thirsty’


Castle Shannon police arrested a burglary suspect Tuesday morning accused of breaking into a tavern and opening a cold beer.

According to police, officers were dispatched to the Castle Tavern on Library Road when the alarm went off just before 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Detectives who arrived at the tavern said they saw a broken window and a motion sensor had been activated in the dining room of the establishment.

Authorities said the officer set up a perimeter and after less than five minutes James Ohanlon, 54, emerged from the building and was immediately detained.

Officers located a metal bar inside the tavern that they said was apparently used to break the window and open a beer from the bar.

According to police, Ohanlon told the officers that he was thirsty.

Police Arrest Sunoco Attempted Robbery Suspect.

(The man is accused of threatening a Sunoco clerk with a gun.)


Bethel Park police say they nabbed the man who tried to rob the Sunoco on Route 19 at gunpoint right before Thanksgiving.

The detective on the case also believes the suspect is connected to the Subway robbery in Castle Shannon, along with robberies in Coraopolis, Bellevue and Ben Avon.

At this time, Dean Pletz, 44, of Bethel Park, is charged with one count of robbery and one count of persons not to possess, use, manufacture, control, sell or transfer firearms.

The Allegheny County District Attorney's office is expected to file more charges against Pletz.

During the attempted robbery investigation, information was received from other police agencies and video evidence generated Pletz as the suspect, according to the criminal complaint filed in district Judge Robert Wyda's office.

Pletz was brought to the Bethel Park Police Department for questioning on Nov. 29 after Mt. Lebanon police pulled over him and his Upper St. Clair girlfriend during a traffic stop.

The attempted robbery at the Sunoco on Route 19, located next to the Upper St. Clair border, happened on Nov. 21. The new employee couldn't get the cash register open, so the suspect did not get away with any cash.

Pletz verbally admitted to the Sunoco and Subway robberies, according to the detective. It remains unclear if he will be considered a suspect in the Bethel Park Dairy Queen robbery.

Pletz has been arrested and convicted of robbery in the past, according to the complaint.

Automated License Plate Readers
Now Aiding Local Police

November 21, 2012

These days, cameras are everywhere.
They’ve been used inside police cruisers for years,
but the newest ones are mounted outside.It’s called the Automated License Plate Reader System and several local departments are using them.

Castle Shannon Police just purchased their first unit, at a cost of $15,000. Many others acquired theirs with grant money.
Three cameras mounted on the roof of a law enforcement vehicle can capture license plates of cars coming, going, even cars parked on the side of the street.

The computer instantly records the numbers and compares them to a database through a processor in the trunk, making it easier to track down stolen vehicles, violent criminals and even abducted children.

Castle Shannon Police Chief Ken Truver told KDKA’s Kym Gable, “Especially in an agency our size where we might have only two or three police officers out in the field at a time, this is just one more force multiplier, an extra set of eyes.”

As far as privacy for ordinary citizens, the chief said unless you’re a criminal, you don’t have to worry.

“They’re already restricted by law. There are administrative sanctions, criminal sanctions, if they do anything with the information they’re not supposed to, so those safeguards are already in place,” Chief Truver said.

Cab driver saves elderly Castle Shannon man
from falling for con artist’s scam

Nov. 13, 2012

A cab driver is being credited with saving an elderly man from falling for a con artist’s scheme.

According to Castle Shannon police, a caller tricked the 82-year-old man into believing he just won $5 million.

Investigators said the scheme told the man he needed to go to a Walmart as fast as he could to get a $500 gift card so he could win the $5 million.

“All the victim was told he had to do to claim the money was to go to Walmart, get a $500 gift card and call the number back,” Castle Shannon Police Chief Ken Truver said.

The victim told the caller that he didn’t have a form of transportation, so they called him a cab.

Dave Capizzi told Channel 11 News he showed up driving his yellow cab to pick up the man and he immediately sensed something was wrong.

“I just felt like he needed somebody who could help him understand what he was about to do wasn’t going to work,” Capizzi said.

Capizzi said he knew it was a scam as soon as the victim began telling him the details.

Investigators said his instincts were right and the scam was meant to eventually get the man’s bank account number.

“He was calmed down, but at one point I thought I was going to have to call 911 for him because he started shaking and breathing funny. I started rubbing his back to calm him down,” Capizzi said.

Police urge anyone who comes across an offer like this one that sounds far too good to be true, to alert authorities.

Arrests made in car vandalism incident and attempt burglary in Hamilton Park neighborhoods.

CSPD responded to 2 criminal incidents last night in the area of Hamilton Park neighborhoods.

2 Juveniles were seen attempting to Burglarize a house on Castle Rd.

In the same time frame 2 juveniles were seen causing damage to a vehicle on Blossom Hill Rd.

Through investigation, officers were able to identify and arrest a 14 yr old and a 17 yr old for both crimes. Because they are juveniles, the police department can release only general information.

While these crimes bear striking resemblance to other crimes recently reported in the Borough, we cannot conclude that these actor(s) are responsible for the other crimes.

The Police Department suggests that residents continue to dialogue through this media and with their neighbors and remain vigilant for suspicious activity.

Always call 9-1-1 to report suspicious people, vehicles, noises or activity for immediate police response.

Our anonymous web tips line sometimes receives information about suspicious activity in progress. This type of information should be directed to 9-1-1 to get a timely police response.

We appreciate your participation in this discussion and welcome your input.

Castle Shannon Police launch pilot initiative of "Virtual" Crime Watch.

While CSPD continues to investigate the string of residential burglaries in the Borough, we continue to solicit help from the residents and business owners to report suspicious people, vehicles and activity, by calling 911 for immediate police response.

Additionally, we have launched a piolt program titled "Nextdoor".

There are five virtual crime watch neighborhoods set up in the Borough, where neighbors can converse with each other, and the Police Department will post updates about criminal activity and police events.

You can only join the neighborhood where you live and you must verify your address.

While these safeguards are designed to make the sites more secure, never divulge information on any website or web/cloud page, which you would not post in your front yard.

Please visit the attached links for the Nextdoor site in your area.
Questions may be directed to the Police Chief at 412.885.9300 x110 or ktruver@csboro.com.

Craigslist Scams...
They even hit here in Castle Shannon


This is a reprint of an article from The Tribune Review 4-19-12. They borrowed it and attributed it to the Los Angeles Times.

These scams have hit here recently and the "tips" apply to most unsolicited phone calls or emails as well...

Buying and selling on Internet classified sites such as Craigslist can be a great way to find a deal and make extra cash. But it can also expose you to a host of scams. Here are some tips to help keep you from being ripped off:

-- Meet the other party in person. By following this single rule, according to Craigslist, you will avoid 99 percent of attempted scams on the site. Any time the other party is unable or unwilling to meet face to face, it should be a huge red flag.

-- Never wire money to the other party. If you do make a deal with someone far away, don't pay through Western Union or a similar service. "Anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer," Craigslist warned.

-- Remember, Craigslist does not guarantee transactions, "certify" buyers or sellers or protect payments in any way. If someone says Craigslist will do so, they're probably trying to deceive you. Some scammers will send an official-looking email, appearing to come from Craigslist, saying that the site will guarantee the transaction. Don't believe it.

-- Watch out for overpayments. An all-too-common ruse is for sellers to be sent a "bank check" for more than the selling price, with a request for the balance to be returned. If this happens, you can be sure the check is a fake.

-- See things for yourself. Don't rent an apartment or house without viewing the inside, and don't buy something expensive without seeing it with your own eyes. If the other party balks, said Craigslist, "in all likelihood that housing unit is not actually for rent and that cheap item does not exist."

FEMA & FCC Unveil New Tip Sheet for Consumers
on How to Prepare for Disasters


This fact sheet provides two important sets of tips. The first will help you prepare your home and mobile devices for a disaster. The second may help you communicate more effectively during and immediately after a disaster.

Before a Disaster: How to Prepare Your Home and Mobile Device

Maintain a list of emergency phone numbers in your cell phone and in or near your home phone.
Keep charged batteries and car-phone chargers available for back-up power for your cell phone.
If you have a traditional landline (non-broadband or VOIP) phone, keep at least one non-cordless phone in your home because if it will work even if you lose power.
Prepare a family contact sheet. This should include at least one out-of-town contact that may be better able to reach family members in an emergency.
Program "In Case of Emergency" (ICE) contacts into your cell phone so emergency personnel can contact those people for you if you are unable to use your phone. Let your ICE contacts know that they are programmed into your phone and inform them of any medical issues or other special needs you may have.
If you are evacuated and have call-forwarding on your home phone, forward your home phone number to your cell phone number.
If you do not have a cell phone, keep a prepaid phone card to use if needed during or after a disaster.
Have a battery-powered radio or television available (with spare batteries).
Subscribe to text alert services from local or state governments to receive alerts in the event of a disaster. Parents should sign up for their school district emergency alert system.
During and After a Disaster: How to Reach Friends, Loved Ones & Emergency Services

If you have a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1. Remember that you cannot currently text 9-1-1. If you are not experiencing an emergency, do not call 9-1-1. If your area offers 3-1-1 service or another information system, call that number for non-emergencies.
For non-emergency communications, use text messaging, e-mail, or social media instead of making voice calls on your cell phone to avoid tying up voice networks. Data-based services like texts and emails are less likely to experience network congestion. You can also use social media to post your status to let family and friends know you are okay. In addition to Facebook and Twitter, you can use resources such as the American Red Cross's Safe and Well program (www.redcross.org/safeandwell).
Keep all phone calls brief. If you need to use a phone, try to convey only vital information to emergency personnel and/or family.
If you are unsuccessful in completing a call using your cell phone, wait ten seconds before redialing to help reduce network congestion.
Conserve your cell phone battery by reducing the brightness of your screen, placing your phone in airplane mode, and closing apps you are not using that draw power, unless you need to use the phone.
If you lose power, you can charge your cell phone in your car. Just be sure your car is in a well-ventilated place (remove it from the garage) and do not go to your car until any danger has passed. You can also listen to your car radio for important news alerts.
Tune into broadcast television and radio for important news alerts. If applicable, be sure that you know how to activate the closed captioning or video description on your television.
If you do not have a hands-free device in your car, stop driving or pull over to the side of the road before making a call. Do not text on a cell phone, talk, or "tweet" without a hands free device while driving.
Immediately following a disaster, resist using your mobile device to watch streaming videos, download music or videos, or play video games, all of which can add to network congestion. Limiting use of these services can help potentially life-saving emergency calls get through to 9-1-1.
Check www.ready.gov regularly to find other helpful tips for preparing for disasters and other emergencies.

SCAM ALERT!! (Social Security)

A Castle Shannon resident recently received a phone call from someone representing that they were from Social Security and had money to disburse. The caller requested the resident's banking information.

The following SCAM ALERT was sent out in 2004, but the rules for protecting your information are timeless. DO NOT release personal information, bank account information or other sensitive data to someone who calls you, no matter who they say they are!!

News Release
Jo Anne Barnhart, Commissioner of Social Security and Patrick O’Carroll, Jr., Acting Inspector General of Social Security issued a warning today about a number of scams that have surfaced recently throughout the U.S. They noted that the Agency has received numerous reports about telephone calls or visits from people alleging to be Social Security employees. In each case, the person attempted to obtain personal information, such as a Social Security or bank account number, from the Social Security recipient.

“I find it very troubling that our most vulnerable citizens are being targeted by these unscrupulous people,” Commissioner Barnhart stated. “I caution everyone to be extremely careful about releasing personal information.”

The perpetrators, who identify themselves as Social Security employees, have used a variety of tactics to obtain personal information. In one instance, the caller said the Agency was experiencing a power outage and needed to verify the person’s information. In another, the caller posed as an employee who needed to verify the recipient’s direct deposit information.

In a third, the recipient is told their Social Security benefits are being cut because they have inherited a house from a relative; an event that would not result in a reduction of their Social Security benefit according to Commissioner Barnhart. To help perpetrate the fraud, the caller then places the recipient on hold and plays the same on-hold recordings used by Social Security. When the caller gets back on the line, the recipient is then told proceeds from the sale of the house will be sent to them if they pay the back taxes.

Acting Inspector General O’Carroll recommends people always take precautions when giving out personal information. “You should never provide your Social Security number or other personal information over the telephone unless you initiated the contact, or are confident of the person to whom you are speaking,” O’Carroll said. “If in doubt, do not release information without first verifying the validity of the call.” Barnhart and O’Carroll recommend contacting the local Social Security office or Social Security’s toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 to verify the legitimacy of the call. (If you are deaf or hard of hearing, call Social Security's TTY number at 1-800-325-0778.)

Acting Inspector General O’Carroll notes that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) is working closely with the Agency to investigate all reports of suspicious activity. To report suspicious activity, please call the OIG Hotline at 1-800-269-0271. (If you are deaf or hard of hearing, call the OIG TTY number at 1-866-501-2101.) A Public Fraud Reporting form is also available online at OIG’s website: http://www.socialsecurity.gov/oig/.

The Allegheny County Health Department is reminding County residents that unintentional firearm deaths, especially involving children, can be prevented by taking simple precautions.

Health officials offer the following tips to prevent gun injuries and deaths:

• Keep firearms out of children’s reach and in a locked cabinet, drawer or gun safe. Store keys and lock combinations separately and out of the reach of children.

• Use trigger locks and keep guns unloaded. Lock ammunition in a place separate from guns.

• Do not keep firearms in a home if someone has a history of depression or talks of suicide.

• Always assume that a gun is loaded. Be sure guns are unloaded when removed from storage.

• Take a gun safety course if you’re a gun owner.
Children and guns are a dangerous combination. Everyone should teach children that if they find a gun they should stop, not touch it, leave the area and tell an adult where the gun is.
This gun safety information is provided by the Allegheny County Health Department and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.


The latest in a long list of Scams being conducted via phone or mail in the Castle Shannon area is a DEBT COLLECTOR SCAM.

Victims of the Scam attempt report that an official sounding caller or recording calls their home number and instructs them to call a 1 800 number with a “claim” or “reference” number.

When the victim calls the number they are presented with identifying data to include phone number, address, social security number, etc… and told that the firm is trying to collect a debt.

Usually there is some threat of “charges” to be levied against the victim if payment is not made.

The scam is further described on an FBI website at:

If you get a call of this nature hang up.
Legitimate debt collectors must send you notification in writing outlining your responsibilities for collection and payment.

Complaints about this scam may be reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at : http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx

The Federal Trade Commission at: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/

and/or the PA Attorney General Consumer Complaints at: http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/complaints.aspx?id=451

Additionally, victim of these fraud attempts should check and flag their credit history with the credit reporting agencies TransUnion, Equifax and Experian.

Latest SCAM!
(Lernks Financial Services sends you a PNC check
for $4500 in a bogus lottery winner scam)


CSPD has been working with local media to bring you the latest in an abundance of SCAMs in all sorts and sizes.

The latest one to hit the area is a letter postmarked Canada from Lernks Financial Services. The letter alleges that the recipient is a winner of $450,000 in a lottery. It also contains a check for $4500 on PNC stock supposedly issued in the name of Carnegie Library.

Our complainant believes he may have entered a sweepstakes on behalf of the library in recent months.

The letter instructs the recipient to call a phone number to "activate" the check. Our reporting person took the bank to PNC and learned it was fraudulent. He was then supposed to obtain $4100 in cash for someone to pick up on behalf of the lottery officials.

This notice should serve as yet another warning that you should be wary of anyone who calls you or sends you an unsolicited letter and/or check and asks for cash in return.

Also be on the watch for anyone who asks that you wire money for receipt of winnings, and any other contact where the promise of reward sounds too good to be true.

A wise person once told me if it sounds too good to be true, it is probably neither good nor true.

Castle Shannon Man Falls Victim To
Mystery Shopping Scheme

June 17, 2011

Castle Shannon man lost $1,400 in a mystery shopping scheme.

Mike Black said he's unemployed and was hoping to make some fast and easy cash by answering an email to become a mystery shopper.

Black said after responding to the email and agreeing to shop at Walmart, he was sent a check.

"After I was done buying the stuff I was to evaluate the store. How clean the store was, how friendly the customer service was. I was to evaluate just about every aspect you can think of," Black said. "When they sent me the check everything looked legit"

The check was issued for $1,850, Black said. He said he was instructed to send back $1,400 within 48 hours to make $450 for a 20 minute shopping trip.

But the check eventually bounced and Black said he wound up losing $1,400.

"Until I get this paid off I can't have a bank account," Black said.

Castle Shannon police said they have opened an investigation and issued a warning to all residents.

"If somebody wants you to send them a check, that should throw up the red flag. That is probably not a legitimate business," said Chief Ken Truver.

Castle Shannon police said they are working with U.S. Postal Service investigators in an attempt to make an arrest.

Grandparent “Scam” continues in the area.

Castle Shannon Police report two recent incidents of the so called “Grandparent Scam”

On 5-6-11 at 1055am a 78 year old female resident reported an attempted phone fraud. She relayed that a young male caller phoned her and said’ “Grandma, it’s me and I’m in Spain for a wedding.” The suspect went on to say that he was involved in a car accident and needed $2800 for bail money. When the targeted victim explained that she didn’t have that kind of money in the house, the caller hung up. The woman immediately called her 19 year old grandson and found out that he was home in Greentree.

On 5-12-11 at 305pm an 89 year old male resident reported a similar occurrence with a different twist. He said that he was contacted by a man alleging to be an attorney from New York. This suspect said that the targeted victim’s grandson was involved in an accident and needed $945 for fine money. The suspect said that the grandson was intoxicated and had a blood alcohol of .9 and that if the money was received immediately, the grandson could avoid a criminal record. The suspect instructed the victim to wire the money via Western Union to New York with instructions to allow the retrieval without identification. (because the grandson’s ID reportedly was confiscated). The victim found this to be suspicious and asked the suspect for a phone number where he could call back. The suspect said he would call again later, as he was in court.

These incidents are a continuation and variation on a scheme which has been ongoing for years. Castle Shannon Police has the information posted on our website at www.csboro.com. In September 2010 residents/victims of this scheme lost over $5500 when they were convinced to send 2 separate money transfers to an address in Spain because they thought their grandson had been arrested in Canada. In that incident, the victims received calls from a male they thought was their grandson and a male posing as a police officer.

A simple Google search for the words “Grandparent Scam” will reveal that the activity is prevalent in several states. Several Attorney General and Consumer Protection websites offer simple advice to avoid being victimized by these and other fraud attempts.

• If you receive an emergency call asking for money, always check with another family member to verify if your loved one really is in trouble and needs help.
• Take the time now to talk with your family about this and other scams.
• Make it a policy never to wire money without being sure the story being told is true.
• If there is ever any doubt about suspicious phone calls or activity call your local police department to assist you in assessing the situation BEFORE you wire money anywhere.
(Once the money transfer is complete, you can rarely get your money back)

Publisher''s Clearinghouse SCAM ALERT

Castle Shannon Residents continue to report phone calls from callers identifying themselves as representatives of Publisher's Clearinghouse, announcing that the resident is a "winner" of a substantial amount of money.

The caller goes on to explain that in order to "process" the award, the resident must send money (usually several hundred dollars) to a provided address.

Residents are reminded that calls of this type are common fraud attempts and that no legitimate award requires you to send cash to receive a prize.

involving the so-called
“Grandparent Scam”


Castle Shannon Police report another incident involving the so-called “Grandparent Scam”

This fraud has been reported on our website http://www.csboro.com/police-message-03-10.asp

A male caller reported to be in his late teens/early 20s called our victim and stated, “ Grandma it’s me.”

The victim wasn’t sure who it was , but eventually guessed the name of one of her grandchildren.

The suspect/actor then assumed that identity and said he was in trouble. He provided a story that he was arrested in Canada and needed bail money.

The caller begged the victim not to contact his “parents” and asked that $5500 be wired to him.

Unfortunately, the victim wired the money in 2 separate transactions on 9-9-10.

The intricate story included a reported call from a “Police Sergeant” which added the appearance of authenticity.

Today, when the victims didn’t hear from their grandchild, they called the number back for the police (which is more than likely a disposable cell phone) and were asked to wire more money for attorney’s fees.

The scam was only uncovered by an alert store clerk who refused to process the additional victim’s wire transfer

The investigation will be referred to the PA Attorney General and the US Postal Inspector, but these cases are inherently hard to track because the perpetrators work from out of the Country.

Residents are again warned about
Property Tax Rebate Assistance.


Residents are again warned about Property Tax Rebate Assistance.
By: kmt

Attorney General Corbett warns seniors to be cautious of fee-based rebate assistance mailings
HARRISBURG - Attorney General Tom Corbett urged Pennsylvania seniors to be wary of mailings and other unsolicited offers that attempt to charge consumers a fee for information about Pennsylvania's property tax rebate program.
"Pennsylvania seniors are NOT required to pay a fee to apply for the state's property tax and rent rebates program," Corbett said. "Rebate forms and instructions are available free-of-charge and can be easily obtained from the Department of Revenue, as well as Area Agency on Aging offices and the offices of many state legislators."
Corbett said that homeowners across the state have reported recent mailings that ask seniors to complete an information form and return it with a payment in order to receive assistance in filing a property tax or rent rebate claim. He noted that the letters do not disclose that seniors can apply for rebates directly with the Commonwealth for free, or that forms and assistance are readily available.
"Consumers should be on the alert for questionable offers that attempt to capitalize on programs intended to provide much-needed financial relief to older Pennsylvanians," Corbett said. "We encourage consumers to avoid unsolicited offers that ask for payment in return for assistance obtaining government funds and urge all consumers to check directly with official agencies to determine if applications or other information can be obtained free-of-charge."
Corbett noted that Pennsylvania's Property Tax/Rent Rebate program benefits eligible Pennsylvanians age 65 and older; widows and widowers age 50 and older; and people with disabilities age 18 and older who meet certain income requirements. The deadline for Pennsylvanians seeking a rebate for property taxes or rent paid in 2009 is June 30, 2010.
Forms and instructions are available online from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue and consumers with questions may call the Department at 1-888-222-9190 for assistance.
Consumers with questions or concerns about suspicious mailings or offers can contact the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-441-2555.
