Preparing Your House Numbers For Easy Identification

In an emergency, police, fire and rescue workers depend on house numbers to find YOU as quickly as possible. Finding your home - especially at night - can be challenging if address numbers are unreadable, hidden, unlighted or have missing numbers and may delay emergency responders from getting to you as quickly as possible.

Are your house numbers visible from the street? Are they set on a background of contrasting color? If your house is hidden from the street, are your numbers attached to a visible fence, mailbox or gate? If you live on a corner, does your house number face the street named in your address

House Number Safety Tips From Nahant EMS

SZ Back To School Safety

It is “Back to School” time and the Nahant Police Department wants to remind motorists that school buses will be back on the roads, and students will be walking along side of roads and waiting for buses. Please watch carefully for children near school buildings, intersections and areas where school buses are traveling or where there are signs for school zones or stops.

Remember that if you are approaching a school bus from either the front or behind, and the yellow lights are flashing, the bus is preparing to stop. If the red lights are flashing on the bus you must stop, except when approaching from the opposite direction on a divided highway, it’s the law. Motorists are asked to drive cautiously and allow themselves plenty of time to get to their destinations especially at times children will be walking to and from school and or getting on and off the school buses.

The Nahant Police will be strictly enforcing speed limits and school bus passing violations in and around school areas and in our neighborhoods where our children are walking to and from school and or getting on and off the school buses. Traffic safety and the safety of our children are always a priority, especially at this time of year.

The Nahant Police Memorial

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And wish with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for here and all the past
Dear God, let my name be the last.
