    Dear Resident,


    Did you know that if every resident planted a tree in the City of Orlando, our tree

    canopy would increase from 25 percent to 40 percent? That’s like taking nearly

    40,000 cars off the road.


    Trees aren’t only good for our environment and our health, they also add value to

    your property, generate energy savings for your home and make Orlando a cooler

    place to live. Just three to four mature shade trees strategically located around

    your home can cut your summer cooling costs up to 30 percent.


    To learn more about our One Person, One Tree campaign and to order a FREE

    tree to plant around your home, visit onepersononetree.com.

    Together, we can improve our community and make Orlando the most

    sustainable City in the country.


    Sincerely,


    Buddy Dyer, Mayor

    The holiday season is always a special time of year. It is also a time when busy people become careless and vulnerable to theft and other holiday crime.


    CRIME TAKES NO HOLIDAY!


    Shopping

    Shop during daylight hours whenever possible. If you must shop at night, go with a friend or family member.

    Avoid wearing expensive jewelry.

    Even though you are rushed and thinking about a thousand things, stay alert to your surroundings.

    Do not carry a purse or wallet, if possible. They are the prime targets of criminals in crowded shopping areas, bus stops and on buses.

    Avoid carrying large amounts of cash. Keep cash/wallet in your front pocket. Pay for purchases with a check or credit card when possible.

    Notify the credit card issuer immediately if your credit card is lost, stolen or misused.

    Keep a record of all your credit card numbers in a safe place at home.

    Avoid overloading yourself with packages. It is important to have clear visibility and freedom of motion to avoid mishaps.

    After placing and concealing parcels inside your vehicle, get in and park in another location in the parking lot before reentering the store or mall.

    Beware of strangers approaching you for any reason. At this time of year “con-artists” may try various methods of distracting you with the intention of taking your money or belongings.


    Automated Teller Machine (ATM)

    If you must use an ATM, choose one that is located inside a police station, mall or well-lighted location.

    Withdraw only the amount of cash you need.

    Protect your PIN by shielding the ATM keypad from anyone who is standing near you.

    Do not throw away your ATM receipt at the ATM location.


    At Home

    Be extra cautious about locking doors and windows when you leave the house, even for a few minutes.

    When leaving home for and extended time, have a neighbor or family member watch your house and pick up your newspaper and mail.

    Indoor and outdoor lights should be on an automatic timer.

    Leave a radio or television on so the house looks and sounds occupied.

    Large displays of holiday gifts should not be visible through the windows and doors of your home.
