November has been named by the township as SAFE Homes month for Verona. The SAFE Homes pledge encourages parents to secure firearms, medications, and alcohol, actively work to prevent underage drinking and drug use, forbid bullying and evaluate computer, phone, and social media usage. Taking the SAFE Homes pledge does not make the signer legally responsible. New Jersey law already makes us all legally accountable if alcohol is served to underage persons in your home.
All SAFE Homes members will receive the names and telephone numbers of the other parents who signed the pledge. Phone numbers are provided to encourage communication among parents. Don’t assume that a party is supervised just because someone signed the pledge.
For this year, to be added to the SAFE Homes registry simply go to VMACNJ.org and take the pledge online. Thank you for helping to keep our community safe.
