We here at FPO really appreciate all the e-mails and DMs of thanks we get everyday. We hear from people locally and from people throughout the Nation who tune in to read about the current status of crimes locally.

Periodically, we encourage our fellow citizens to join us in volunteering and contributing to the Nation’s largest Anti Crime – Social Media group. FPO-Citizens Informing Citizens, Inc. has nearly 73,000 likes on Facebook and over 10,000+ on Twitter.

The Arctic Chill surrounding our lives~


 

It’s been said that January is the coldest, darkest month of winter. As the temps take a huge dip, it’s time to take a glance on how we are affected by the chill…

We have taken a moment to locate information that may be of help, making you aware of the changes the frigid air has on changes of your skin and your pets.

 

 

Signs of “Frostbite” ~  www.mayoclinic.com/health/frostbite/DS01164/DSECTION=symptoms  (provided by  Mayo Clinic).  Check often for these signs when you are exposed to the chilling temps. 

Let’s not forget about our four legged family members, prolonged expo sure can be disastrous… http://www.drsfostersmith.com/pic/article.cfm?aid=928 (information provided by (Drs. Foster & Smith Educational Staff). Keep in mind animals need food and fresh water to produce energy to assist in keeping warm. Also this link has good information for outdoor pets (horses, etc.) http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/resources/tips/protect_pets_winter.html

 

We need to take into consideration as well, that of the elderly and infants, temps like this can cause undue health  problems. Sleeping in a cold room can also cause hypothermia… http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hypothermia/DS00333/DSECTION=symptoms (provided by Mayo Clinic).

Please take care of yourselves and your family members/friends.  Life produces situations that makes it necessary to look out for one another, the winters frigid temps are one of those situations.

We are in this together as neighbors, stay warm Flint…~~FPO~~

  • Basic typing. No specific words per minute.
  • Ability to listen to the police scanner and post what you hear.
  • Volunteer from home, no police scanner needed as all of the scanners we use are available online.
It is really that easy. So if you have any interest in becoming a part of the Nations largest social media crime watch please complete the volunteer application here:

Let’s work together….

To many lives have been taken for all the wrong reasons and far to often. We need to take a stand together. To bring this violence  and ALL crime to an end, we cannot leave it up to the law enforcement agencies to do all the work. SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!

Stand up for your family…stand up for your friends they may not be able to stand up for themselves now that they were taken. If you know anything that could help bring down a “killer” , bring him or her to justice to be judged for the crime he or she has committed. The time is NOW!

No one needs to leave a name, it can be done anonymously by using the new COPLOGIC system, just follow the links listed to learn more about how it works and how to get started. We thank you, you city will benefit from your decision…Please join us “See Something, Say Something, SPEAK-UP”.

FPO is the nations largest social media network, with over 70,000+ viewers and over 10,000+ twitter followers, together we can bring down the crime that plagues our city.

All crime needs to be reported, Lets all come together! Stay safe….and thank you ~~FPO~~
