CGA Safety Committee Looking for "Block Captains"

Thank you to Will Hudson for stepping up to become our new Safety Committee Chair. Will was instrumental in organizing the recent CGA Safety Meeting at the University Club in Auguat. It was a very informative meeting with experts in safety and security present to answer neighbors’ questions. Will is excited about leading the committee and you can expect to hear an increase in the number of updates and notifications. Also, he will be reaching out for your help!

The Safety Committee is currently looking for “block captains” to help communicate and disseminate useful and critical information to their specific block(s). This is not a major time commitment. If you’re interested in being a block captain for your block, email  [email protected] Please include your name, address, phone, blocks interested in captaining. This could include a block that you share an alley with.

The committee would also ask, especially with the holiday season upon us, that you take current and future efforts to secure your mail packages. We’ve already seen an increase in stolen package updates on Nextdoor. Here are a few suggestions that will help:

1) Request the package NOT be left at the door if no one is home to receive or sign for it. 

2) Request the package be left in a specific area of your property hidden from view. 

3) Phelps is a great resource to secure your packages in a specific area of your property. This is one of the many Phelps “bonuses” we encourage you to utilize if you are already a Phelps subscriber. If not, please contact Phelps Security to learn more and join at Phelps Security or directly by calling (901) 365-9728.

4) Ask your neighbors. You can request a delivery notification and when arrived, ask a friendly neighbor if they mind holding (or hiding) the package for you. 

Will and the Safety Team look forward to the challenge of helping all of us make our wonderful neighborhood safer. We need your support. Please sign up to be a block captain, make sure to keep those packages secure, and if not a member of Phelps already - make sure to sign up here
