City of Newcastle

 

 

 

 

Ranked by Money magazine as one of the best small towns in America for 2013, Newcastle combines the convenience and choices of urban living with the comfort and community of a small town. In Newcastle residents can live, work, shop, and play, commute easily to the best jobs in the Pacific Northwest, and return home to live close to natural areas, trails and other opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Night Out Against Crime in Newcastle

Send a message to criminals that Newcastle neighborhoods are organized and fighting back by putting together a Night Out Against Crime event this year. Night Out, a national crime prevention event Newcastle traditionally participates in, will be August 4. Bring your neighborhood together to talk about crime prevention and block watch, and celebrate with food, games, or other activities. Members of the Newcastle City Council and other City officials and police officers attend Newcastle Night Out events, so its a good chance to strengthen these partnerships and foster a sense of community. To register a Night Out Against Crime event, contact Officer Anthony Taglieri by sending an email to anthony.taglieri@kingcounty.gov.

 

Prepare for Excessive Heat this Summer

Take steps now to protect yourself from a dangerously hot summer this year. The National Weather Service predicts above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation for June, July and August in our region. These conditions can be life-threatening for people and pets. Daytime heating is a problem, but not cooling off during warm nights adds to the body's stress. Go to www.ready.gov/heat for information on how to prepare and stay safe during periods of prolonged heat. Remember that temperatures within vehicles can quickly rise to 120 degrees or more, even with windows left slightly open. Never leave pets or children in your vehicle, even for a few minutes. If you see a child or an animal in distress in an unattended vehicle, call police at 911.
