Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch MEMBER



A Neighbourhood Watch can be anywhere: a street, cul-de-sac or block of apartments. There are people who want to reduce and prevent crime. The Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator, in cooperation with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, can host a meeting to make sure you and your neighbours have all the details to get started.

Fire Safety Every home needs a fire escape plan. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go if there is a fire. Make sure you have working smoke alarms on every level of your home, outside sleeping areas and inside sleeping areas. Test them monthly and change your batteries at least twice a year, or sooner if the alarm chirps to warn you the battery is low.

Municipal Awareness Day, May 10 Roundabouts

Traffic calming

A roundabout is a circular intersection where two or more roads meet. Traffic circulates through them counter-clockwise, to the right of a center island. All entering vehicles must yield to traffic already in the roundabout.

Traffic calming is the art of using a physical traffic management technique to reduce the impacts of traffic on neighbourhoods.

Roundabouts increase traffic flow, leading to less idling and air pollution, and reduce the potential for serious crashes.
