Bicycle Safety Reminders from the Centerville Police Department
As we anticipate the increase in bicycle traffic, the Centerville Police Department would like to remind the bicyclists and motorists alike to keep an eye out for each other and share the roads safely. Motorists should always look twice and signal before changing lanes, turning at intersections, and allow a safe distance between your vehicle and cyclists as you pass. Bicyclists share in the same responsibilities and should obey all traffic laws just as the drivers of vehicles do. Regardless of your age, you should always wear a protective helmet when riding a bicycle to help prevent often avoidable head injuries and set a great example for our youth. If you are under eighteen years of age we want to remind you and your parents of the City of Centerville ordinance that requires you to wear an approved bicycle helmet when operating or riding as a passenger on a bicycle in the City of Centerville. pdf Click here for the press release.

Code Red Registration
The City of Centerville uses CodeRED as an additional method to notify its residents and businesses of emergencies. CodeRED is a fast communication tool for emergency notification. When there is an emergency, the City determines which neighborhoods or areas are affected and creates a recorded message that describes the emergency and provides directions to the public. After the message is confirmed, the high-speed dialer delivers the message at a rate of 50,000 calls an hour to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number. CodeRED will already reach the majority of residents who have a landline phone. However, the City encourages residents and all businesses to register their cell phone number.
