FIRE & RESCUE DEPARTMENT ON CEDAR STREET

The Springfield Volunteer Fire Department has been an integral part of Springfield since the very first fire department was formed in 1914. Volunteers housed fire equipment in various buildings around town until 1947 when a former auto dealership located at 164 So. 2nd Street became the first actual Volunteer Fire Department building.  Besides volunteering for the fire department, members also work to raise funds for new equipment and to improve services to the community. In 1966 a new municipal building was constructed at 170 No. 3rd Street. Along with the city hall and library, the fire and rescue department moved into the new building in October 1966. The Springfield Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department moved to its newly built facility in 2009 at 505 So. 1st Street.

T.E.A.M. PRESENTS FREE-DRIVE IN MOVIE TO KICK OFF RED RIBBON WEEK

Papillion, NE-  Each year from October 23 to 31, individuals, schools, and communities across the United States show their commitment to a healthy, drug-free lifestyle by wearing or displaying the red ribbon. Red Ribbon Week raises awareness of drug use and the problems related to drugs faced by individuals, families, and communities. This annual health observance encourages parents, educators, business owners, and other community organizations to promote drug-free lifestyles.

Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.) is hosting a FREE Drive-In Movie at Falconwood Park in Bellevue on October 22nd to kick off Red Ribbon Week. This “Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free” event includes a tobacco-free family-friendly movie showing of “Hocus Pocus” for 100 vehicles free of charge. T.E.A.M. will provide each vehicle a complimentary goodie bag that includes a red ribbon. Anyone 18 years or older can register for a parking pass at https://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.TeamTobaccoFree.org&source=gmail&ust=1602706011291000&usg=AFQjCNET1JKDvkf-4jiafuuJN1xbqxA9Hw">www.TeamTobaccoFree.org. Only one person in each vehicle needs to register for a pass, and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Social distancing measures will be taken and masks are required when outside of a vehicle. 

“As many community events and activities have been postponed or canceled, we wanted to provide a safe experience for people to leave their homes and watch a movie in a tobacco-free setting outdoors – at no cost to them,” said Autumn Sky Burns, T.E.A.M.’s Outreach Coordinator for Sarpy County. 

Falconwood Park will open at 5:30 p.m. for the 7 p.m. showing. Audio will be enabled through each car’s FM radio, and on-site attendants will guide vehicles to their parking spots and check that everyone follows the Sarpy Cass Health Department COVID-19 Event and Gathering Safety Plan. No tobacco or alcohol use is allowed inside or out of vehicles.

T.E.A.M. is a community coalition of organizations, educational and community groups, and individuals that meet monthly to educate and advocate for healthy tobacco-free communities.

Scam calls up, and now they’re texting, too

           Omaha Public Power District is receiving an increased number of customer reports of scam phone calls the past several days

       We’re hearing about a new tactic. Scammer are reaching out to some customers via text messages. Either way, their goal is the same – to fool customers and steal their money.

          Scam calls pick up several times a year, and the numbers seem to be increasing since the pandemic began. It’s happening all across the country. Callers try to take advantage of customers by falsely identifying themselves as utility employees and claiming customers have overdue bills. In some cases, they claim customers need to pay for equipment, such as meters. They often use “spoofing” technology so that the calls appear to be legitimate.

          The callers try to get their targets to give up credit, debit or checking account information over the phone to make a payment, or to purchase a pre-paid debit card, such as a Green Dot card, from a nearby store. With purchased cards, they instruct customers to call them back with the numbers. They threaten to disconnect service soon if customers do not pay.

         We are getting new reports of scammers texting customers, as well. In these cases, they’re demanding payment via a bar code.

          OPPD stresses that none of these people demanding payments or financial information works for the utility. The utility never cold calls customers demanding payment. And it does not accept payment in the form of pre-paid debit cards.

Additionally, Some customers have reported receiving phone calls from callers who claim to be OPPD employees, and instructing customers to go to various west Omaha “kiosk” locations to pay in person. These are NOT OPPD kiosks. And OPPD would never cold call customers demanding they make payment at a kiosk.

 Customers have told us that the callers are alleging these kiosks are to allow for “contactless payment” in light of COVID -19. The scammers then followed up on their phone calls by texting customers a QR code, like the kind that makes payment via bitcoin. They instruct customers to use that code to make a payment.

Again, these types of kiosks are NOT used by OPPD. This is just one more method thieves are using in our digital world to try and take utility customers’ money. And they are using the pandemic to take advantage.

 We continue to advise customers:

  • Never give personal or financial information to a stranger during an unsolicited phone call.
  • If such a person should appear unannounced at one’s door, claiming to work for the utility, do not allow them inside. Always ask for identification or verification. OPPD employees always carry identification. Failure to produce identification is a tip-off to the customer that something is wrong.
  • Be suspicious of any emails you receive regarding your utility bill if you have not opted in to online communications from OPPD.
  • Never provide personal information via email, and do not click on suspicious links.
  • Do not respond to text messages seeking personal information or utility bill payments. Do not click on links within such messages.
  • Never turn off security systems for any reason if a stranger asks. Any customer who receives such a request should call law enforcement immediately.

          Customers with questions about making a payment, or about their account in general, should always call OPPD directly. Within Omaha, the number is 402-536-4131.

          Outside of Omaha, customers should call 1-877-536-4131.
