Sunnyvale Police launches Take Me Home Program

This week, the Sunnyvale Police Department launched the Take Me Home Program. The Take Me Home Program focuses on individuals who have disabilities and may need extra help communicating in an emergency. This kind of assistance may be necessary if the individual is unable to speak or properly identify themselves, or if they become disoriented, or act in a manner that could be misinterpreted by first responders. This program allows residents to register family members with disabilities and provides an easier method of communication in an emergency situation.

This program is a free service available to all residents of the Town who may have trouble communicating and is aimed at individuals with Autism, Down Syndrome, and developmental or cognitive disabilities. The program is also intended to assist senior citizens who suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s. All information is kept confidential.

The registration form can be found here.

If you have questions regarding the Take Me Home Program, please contact Sunnyvale Police Department at (972) 203-0312.

  • Cedar Hill: 75104 - three pools

Defend yourself by using the four D's:

  • DEET - Whenever you are outside, use insect repellents that contain DEET or other EPA approved repellents.
  • DRESS - Wear long, loose, and light-colored clothing outside.
  • DRAIN - Remove all standing water in and around your home. Change water in wading pools, pet dishes, and birdbaths several times a week.
  • DUSK AND DAWN - Limit outdoor activities during dusk and dawn - this is when mosquitoes are most active.

Mosquito dunks are available to residents at no charge and may be picked up at Town Hall.

Fire Station Location

The Town is in the process of selecting a location for a new fire station. The goal for the new station is to select a location that will improve emergency response times for fire and EMS calls and to enhance firefighter safety.

On Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. the Town Council will hear additional information about sites being considered. Due to COVID-19, it is requested that residents interested in participating do so via ZOOM. The link for the meeting will be posted under "agendas" on the Town website by Friday, Aug. 24.
