Purim message from LCSW

LCSW: The excitement in the air is tangible. The costume and mishloach manos preparations have been in full swing and the town of Lakewood is ready to fulfill the tremendous mitzvos of Purim.

LCSW/ Shomrim would like to remind the community of the important safety precautions to take to ensure a celebratory Purim, in a safe, responsible way. LCSW/Shomrim cautions all to drink responsibly and drive safely; Shomrim will be on constant call throughout Purim.

Due to the uniqueness of the way Purim falls out this year; Friday leading straight into Shabbos, there is an expected increase of emergencies such as missing persons or an unidentified uncommunicative person in your area. Routine LCSW Patrols will be amplified to meet this anticipated need. In addition, command centers will be positioned around town, near the Westgate area, Belz community, and 7th & Princeton, to deter unruly behavior. Please utilize those posts to ask for assistance if needed.

As always, do not hesitate to call LCSW/Shomrim’s emergency hotline 732-367-1212 or flag down any vehicle for any safety concerns.

A freilichin Purim!
