SAFETY EVENT NOTICE: Have you tested, or used, your fire extinguisher in the past year? Your neighbors have had fires and emergencies and the Fire Department was called to Fearrington 145 times in 2012 or an average of twice every five days -- sometimes for medical emergencies. They came to Galloway Ridge 64 times.
MALWARE ALERT: Feburary 21, 2013 -- Facebook, Apple hacks could affect anyone: Here's what you can do. Summary: Reports suggest that both Facebook and Apple employees — and likely others, including Twitter — visited an infected website laden with malware, which exploited a vulnerability in Java. Now that the cause has been identified, here's what you can do.
Community Watch In Fearrington Village
The Fearrington Village Home Owners Association (FHA) currently has many of the components of a modern safe community program already in effect and is now beginning the process of updating, reorganizing, and, in some instances, adding to those components to create a more unified and improved program to further improve the quality of life in the community.
The HOA continues to enjoy a close working relationship with Sheriff Richard H. Webster and the Chatham County Sheriff's Department, and especially with Lieutenant Steve Maynor and Deputy Tim White, who continue to contribute much time, professional knowledge and advice in all the planning and implementation of many facets of ensuring the health, safety, and security of our community. We deeply appreciate this excellent partnership.
Congratulations to Deputy Tim White, who was presented with a Meritorious Achievement Award by Sheriff Webster at the Department's January 2012 Annual Awards Dinner in Siler City.
For examples of specific Community Watch program components, which are part of the national model, see the list below. Items in blue text below are linked to existing aspects of those programs here in Fearrington Village and/or in Chatham County. In the coming weeks and months, the FHA Health, Safety, and Security Committee and its other subcommittees (Community Emergency Response Team/CERT, and Road Safety) will be working together to improve the intergation and implementation of these important interrelated initiatives and programs.
While ours is not a crime-ridden neighborhood, we are not immune from the risk and we all need to be vigilant. There have been several prior burglaries and prior incidents of vandalism at the Swim and Croquet Club. The Chatham County Sheriff's Department does patrol our village, but Chatham County is very large.
The Community Watch program is an attempt both to ensure that, as neighbors, we look out for one another and to let any potential criminals know that someone is watching out for them. It is an extension of the strong sense of community that distinguishes Fearrington Village.
Be sure to complete and turn in the (voluntary) FHA Emergency Information Registration Form. This information is a vital resource in case of any emergency.

When to Call 911 and When Not
Calling 911 is an important communications tool for emergencies. However, some citizens call 911 in non-emergency situations. This can cause the dispatch operator to miss a call of a person needing help. It is important to understand when to call and when not to call 911.

When Not to Call
For more information about when to call and not please contact (919)542-2991, the non-emergency number for our 911 service, and ask if someone can discuss the topic with you.
