Flourishing in Palm Beaches may be a matter of personal taste, but when it comes to staying safe, the community is united behind what they believe is the best plan for the future.
“Palm Beach County, like most counties, is not perfect, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be safe,” said county commissioner Bob Odom.
“There are still people out there who have no idea how to take care of themselves.”
There are a few tips to take into consideration when you are planning a trip to Palm Beach.
Check with the local police department to make sure they have a plan in place.
If you are going to a hotel, make sure you have enough cash on hand for a stay.
If the county has a parking lot, don’t leave a car unattended in the lot.
If your plan involves visiting the beach, you may want to wear appropriate clothing and get a group together.
“It’s important that you make the effort to stay out of sight, out of mind, and don’t let people get you down,” Odom said.
He also recommends staying in one of the areas in the county that is safer for you.
“We want to encourage you to be cautious and look out for each other, but at the same time, don.
There’s a lot of people out here who may be just as scared as you, but they’ve also got a family to feed,” Odoms said.
The county also has a number of programs that can be used to help people deal with the challenges of life in Palm Gardens.
“These programs help people with anxiety, depression, addiction, or other issues,” ODom said.
For instance, if you’re struggling with a serious illness, the Palm Beach Health Care Center offers treatment and resources for those who need it.
Also, the county is working on a new program to provide mental health and substance abuse counseling.
“Those are all services that are being rolled out in the near future and we are hoping that they will be effective and will address the needs of people who are going through this,” Ooms said.
