Redwood City Police and Fire Town Hall Meeting
7-9 p.m. Wednesday, November 13
Redwood Shores Branch Library, 399 Marine Parkway
In 2013, the Redwood City Police and Fire Departments collaborated to increase prevention of violence and enhancement of safety at neighborhood schools. The comprehensive plan included synchronizing response procedures between the two departments in addition to training school staff regarding protocols for sheltering in place or responding to violent intruders on campus. The positive response to the initiative from those involved was overwhelming.
To expand the benefits of the collaboration between Redwood City's police and fire departments, a joint Town Hall-style community meetings with a theme of "residents and public safety working in partnership to improve our neighborhoods," will be held this Wednesday in Redwood Shores.
The meeting will be facilitated by members of the police and fire departments. Residents will hear formal presentations about programs and services offered by each department and participate in a facilitated discussion to voice their concerns about public safety issues in their community.
