Back to School Safety Reminders
The Firestone Police Department is committed to keeping all pedestrians safe, especially kids who walk or bike to and from school. Most schools will have students back starting next Wednesday, August 17! We want to remind drivers to stay alert and be mindful of the increased traffic that comes at the start of every school year.
School Speed Zone
As students return to school, the Firestone Police Department will have an increased presence near school zones and will enforce the reduced speed limits. Please be mindful of these school zones and reduce speed appropriately while driving through them.
School Bus Stop Arms
School buses will be returning to their routes to pick up and drop off students. Please remember to abide by the stop sign on the side of the bus when they are stopped allowing children to safely get on and off the bus and cross the street if necessary.
Especially this time of year. We ask that drivers take extra care to look out for children, especially when driving near a school.
The Firestone Police Department appreciates the public support. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Firestone Police Department at 303-833-0811.
