November Is SAFE Homes Month


Share post:

The Verona Municipal Alliance Committee (VMAC) is once again encouraging all Verona school families to take its SAFE Homes pledge.

The pledge is a promise to not allow underage alcohol and drug use in a home or property, to safely store firearms and harmful substances, monitor computer and social media use, and not allow bullying. Families who take the SAFE Homes pledge get a list of other families who have taken the pledge so that they can call them to make sure that any events at a home are properly supervised.

VMAC created SAFE Homes more than a decade ago. Its representatives gave an overview of its work at the October 30 Town Council meeting. The group notes that New Jersey law holds adults legally accountable if alcohol is served to underage persons in your home. The Verona Police Department regularly stops underage drinking parties and charges homeowners.
