Death Notice: Simann - Ruth ( 25/9/1923 - 27/10/2014). Died peacefully in her sleep last night  in her 91st year at B.S. Leon Home in Harare, Zimbabwe. A Remarkable Woman in her own right.  Deeply Mourned by her son Frank Plesdenat. Contact details:- +263 4 301294 or +263 772 574587.

 

Rabies


On Saturday, I found a stray dog outside our house in a close off Winchcombe Road, just off Harare Drive. It was in shocking condition and its entire head and front legs were covered in blood. It was barely moving, but I could see it was still breathing. I phoned the vet at Borrowdale Lane Veterinary Surgery, and was able to collect a vet who came to the house and euthanised the dog. The vet suspected Rabies, so the dog was stored over the weekend in the cold room at the University of Zimbabwe Veterinary Department, and on Monday morning I took it to the Government Vet on Borrowdale Road.  They phoned me late yesterday afternoon to confirm that the dog tested positive for rabies.

 

The concerning thing is that on examination, the vet found many puncture wounds on the dog, and suspected it had been in a fight with other dogs in the area. Which means that there are now possibly other dogs roaming the Greystone Park area carrying the rabies virus...

 

Please pass the message on and check your pets vaccinations are up to date!

My 6 year old daughter and my husband were attacked by an unknown dog this weekend at our gate. The dog was put down and sent to be tested for rabies and the results came back positive. We all started the Rabies vaccines the day after the incident, Michael Galfand Clinic was amazing. Our doctors rooms and vets have been amazing too.

It has been one of the scariest weeks of my life and i just wanted to use our experience to warn people about rabies. I have spent time this week talking to various people in different areas of the country and it is a terrible outbreak - we are on a farm only one hour out of Harare,in Shamva, but at the clinic they said they have had people in with reports of rabies in Harare too. There are a lot of dogs appearing on the road sides and roaming all over the place so be aware.

With an outbreak like this please please don't pick up any stray animals of any sort and take them into your home, rather report them if you think they are in need.

If you get bitten by an animal you don't know - irrigate the wound with disinfectant as much as you can and get to the doctor to start your vaccines straight away.

Also go and speak to the vet's in your area to help start vaccinating programs and to educate people about how to properly care for their animals and keep rabies vaccines up to date. I know this is nothing new but there is a lot more of it around and communities need to come together on this because it is a horrible thing to have lurking around the people and animals of Zimbabwe.

 

Take care

ANTI-HIJACK UPDATE FOR SEPTEMBER 2014


ANTI-HIJACK UPDATE FOR SEPTEMBER 2014


At last! … Spring/ going to Summer have now arrived and we can so goodbye to the winter 2014. This is the time to open wide the windows, doors and have the cool breeze blow thru and remove the winter blues…. This is also the time to take a check on the security of all property.  When entertaining, make sure the rest of the house is secure and locked or alarmed, both doors and windows. It is best to leave access to only one entrance when entertaining so that you can police the traffic in and out of your home.  This is the time for braai’s and el fresco entertaining which means that we have friends and family round frequently, please keep good security in mind.

Have all cars parked inside where possible, and in an area which has adequate bright lighting, with all cars locked and where possible a ‘guard’ to watch the vehicles during this period. Its best to check periodically on this area and the property to make sure all is secure.

Do NOT leave the electric gate unlocked or on manual as this is an invitation for criminals to enter the property. It only takes seconds for these perpetrators to slip through onto the property.

It is foresight to have remote panic buttons on hand during these events, to sound the alarm and have backup help arrive within minutes … it will save valuable time!  

If you are having a large function, please obtain the necessary permission from your Police Station for the event.

The driving has become extremely bad again … please keep to the rules of the road and in the right lanes, especially when turning right.  It seems to be a free for all and let’s see how many lanes of traffic we can make ….This is so dangerous and many unnecessary accidents caused by carelessness and driving without due care and attention. The use of mobile phones is a criminal offense whilst driving unless the correct ‘hands off’ equipment is in use. 

Smash and Grabs are increasing, due to valuable goods left in view, added area is CBD.. Cash is a high risk, do not carry large sums of money around with you, it’s a desperate situation out there ……..

 

Let’s ALL fight this crime together  - stay ALERT and SAFE !

Safeguard Break in report


In the report this month a few things stand out for us.

-       In Harare gate motors are once again on the list and there have been numerous thefts.

-       The incidents in Harare by large majority are early evening and early morning’s .This emphasizes the need to lock up early.

-       In Bulawayo a return to break in to commercial properties where the alarm is bypassed. This takes inside knowledge of the alarm coverage.

o   Check that your alarm coverage is interlinked /overlapping and that it is will detect entry to your high priority areas.

o   Check that your alarm control panel and signalling equipment is within the zone of  alarm protection to prevent tampering after entry

o   Make sure that it is fitted in a secure area within the premises to prevent tampering during the day by staff or “customers”

-       In Mutare attacks on women and people by themselves is a real concern. Travel in company if at all possible, carry pepper spray and have it to hand.

If you would like advice on your security call your local safeguard branch, or email us at info@safeguard.co.zw.
