It is possible to become a Smarter Driver! I took this course when I was 55. Honestly thought I would be bored out of my mind with all of the miles I logged every year as a Realtor. Much to my surprise I did learn to become a better driver and was very surprised that I did learn things I didn’t already know. – JC

Scammer warning! It’s that time of year when the weather is cooling and northerners travel south to take in the south Florida sunshine. Unfortunately with this migration come scammers. These scammers often visit homes claiming to work for water utilities, driveway paving, roofing companies and tree trimming. It is important to remember that you should not open your door to solicitors or accept work from unlicensed contractors. Should someone approach you claiming they can provide home repair service or need to check your utilities, call the Coral Springs Police non-emergency number 954-344-1800. Police will respond to ensure the person is a legitimate business and if they are soliciting illegally, they will be cited. Make sure you and your loved ones stay safe and aware!

With the most recent hurricane forecasts, Hurricane Irma, predicting landfall in South Florida, it is important to have a plan to evacuate if necessary. If you are in an evacuation zone and are a pet owner, you may find an issue with bringing them to a general population shelter, as they only allow service animals. If you own pets, you are advised to bring them to the pet friendly shelter (which is not a general population shelter). We encourage those that have pets to pre-register their animals with the shelter in case of emergency and you need to leave your homes. The pre-registration is required and is something that you may not be able to do on the go, so be prepared!
The closest pet friendly shelter is in Tamarac at the Millennium Middle School located at 5803 NW 94th Avenue. Tamarac, FL 33321. This shelter will allow all Broward residents and their registered pets to seek shelter. In order to register, please call the Humane Society at 954-989-3977. To see the full listing of general population shelters check out the Broward Evacuation Shelter List Here. Please start to take necessary precautions and stay safe!
