WOUNDED WILDLIFE? WHO DO I CALL?
CINCO RANCH RESIDENTS DO YOU HAVE THIS PHONE NUMBER IN YOUR CELL PHONE?
HOW TO CONTACT WILDLIFE REHABILITATORS IN OUR AREA
Two phone numbers suggested you save in your cell phone are the nonemergency Harris County precinct 5 Constables and Fort Bend County Sheriff’s numbers. 911 should always be used in case of an emergency, but many times we need to contact the Sheriff’s Department and need to do so quickly. Don’t hesitate to call the Sheriff’s Department if something in your neighborhood seems questionable. This will give our contract deputies probable cause to investigate. This would include suspicious vehicles (vehicles exhibiting unsafe or erratic driving behavior), suspicious persons or behavior, activity at you neighbors home when you know they are on vacation and anything else that may be out of the ordinary in your neighborhood. Don’t take a chance on you or your family’s safety.
Cinco Ranch Residents report wounded to the proper agency, Wildlife Rehabilitators.
Fort Bend County - Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Accepts: Mammals, birds, reptiles Location: Houston 713-861-WILD (9 AM - 6 pM); 713-643-WILD (after hrs.) Harris County - Texas Wildlife Rehab Coalition Accepts: Mammals, birds, reptiles
SHERIFF’S VACATION HOME WATCH
Vacation Can Be Great! Make sure you return home and feel great. If you are going on vacation, a business trip or just going away for the weekend, please put your house on a vacation watch list. It only takes a few minutes to inform local police that you are away from home. Take measures to secure your home and cars. Let your neighbors know that you will be away and when you plan to return. Inform neighbors and law enforcement if you plan on having maintenance services stop by while you are on vacation. It is advised that you have newspapers stopped, mail held and any advertisement left on your property picked up by someone. Keeping lawn mowed for a normal appearance to the property will look as if there is active occupancy. Taking preventative steps may deter vandals or thieves
POSTAL BOX MAINTENANCE
To report postal Boxes that are in disrepair or in need of replacement, please www.usps.com/ contactus.
PROTECT STORM DRAINS Decomposing leaves and grass clippings can cause large amounts of algae
