Summer/Fall Safety Notice
The Loving County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone to be safe and drive cautiously as children may be out playing in Mentone. The oilfield traffic is busy as ever day and night if you have any concerns please email or call the Sheriff’s Office.
August usually means higher temperatures, so remember these tips to beat the heat:
- Take frequent water breaks
- Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15
- Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle
- Seek medical attention immediately for any signs of heat-related illness
We would also like to remind everyone traveling in a vehicle to always wear your seat belt and never drink and drive. Seat belt use is a most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. Do not drink and drive – instead, call on a designated driver to get you home safely. Not only do you risk your life when you drive impaired, you are putting other drivers and passengers you share the roadway with at risk, too.
While you are traveling our roadways, boating, camping, or fishing, please always remember to practice safety. Mind the speed limits and always be on the lookout for children at play and crossing the streets or using the crosswalk at the Post Office.
The Sheriff’s Office hopes everyone has a great summer! I’m sure you can’t wait for the temperature to start cooling down. Be safe out there and if you need any help please call the office.
