In observance of Labor Day, the administrative offices of the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office will be closed on Monday, September 4, 2017.
Safety is one of our top priorities throughout the year, but it’s especially important during extended holiday weekends.
Here are some safety tips
Avoid driving and/or boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Buckle up – no matter how short your trip.
Avoid the water during inclement weather, particularly when it includes thunder and lightning.
Be even more cautious when traveling through construction zones.
Avoid texting and talking on the phone while driving.
Tips for Safe Grilling
Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Keep children and pets away from the grill.
Never add charcoal starter fluid after coals have been ignited.
Use long-handled utensils.
Don’t leave the grill unattended while in use.
