On Monday, February 25, 2019 at 7:39pm, Quincy Police received several 9-1-1 calls about a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian at the intersection of Burgin Parkway & Granite Street. Several units, including Quincy Fire Dept and Brewster Ambulance Service, arrived on scene moments after the first calls.
QUINCY POLICE WILL BE PROVIDING FREE BASIC BOATING SAFETY COURSES
The Quincy Police Marine Unit, in partnership with the Massachusetts Environmental Police, will be presenting three Basic Boating Safety Courses at no cost to the public. These courses are designed for persons 12 years old and up, regardless of boating skill. Courses are nationally approved, and course completion will allow persons to legally operate a boat in states requiring Basic Boating Safety Courses. Everyone who completes the course will be issued a Basic Boating Safety Certificate. All graduates in the 12 through 15 year-old age group will be legally allowed to operate a motorboat without adult supervision. The same is true for 16 and 17 year old youth who wish to operate a personal watercraft (jet ski, wave runner, etc.)
Looks like snow and ice are coming our way this weekend. Just a friendly reminder of the Snow Emergency Parking Rules for 2019
Residents may park on the even numbered side of non-emergency neighborhood streets, but should always park in driveways if available. Parking is prohibited on all designated emergency arteries. A complete list of emergency arteries can be found here.
Residents on side streets posted permanently as one-side parking should park on the side always allowed.
Cars parked in violation of emergency rules or impede snow plowing operations pose a public safety risk, and WILL BE TOWED. Regardless of parking rules, vehicles determined to be in obstruction of snow removal or emergency vehicles are subject to towing if not moved. For assistance, residents can use the City’s snow request application at email@example.com or call the DPW's snow operation hotline at (617) 376-1927. Please use this number if you have a question or concern about plowing and/or sanding.
For flood-related assistance, call (617) 376-1910. Residents in coastal areas should take appropriate precautions and monitor weather reports. ALWAYS call 911 in an emergency.
