Abandoned Shopping Carts
Abandoned shopping carts pose a nuisance and a safety hazard in the community. They also contribute to a sense of visual blight. At a cost of approximately $10 each, businesses must pick up the tab for the lost carts. A cost that could get passed on to you the customer. You can help keep the City of San Dimas beautiful by keeping our streets and neighborhoods free of abandoned shopping carts.

If you see a stray shopping cart you should contact the City's cart retrieval hotline at (909) 394-6200. Please be prepared to report the location (exact street address or nearest cross streets) of the shopping cart and the business to which it belongs to.

CodeRED Emergency Notification System
The City of San Dimas has contracted with Emergency Communications Network, Inc. for its "CodeRED" high-speed telephone emergency notification service. The CodeRED system gives City Officials the ability to notify City residents by telephone about emergency situations or critical community alerts. The CodeRED system will only be used when situations arise that the community should be aware of (i.e. severe weather, wildfire, water main breaks, alerts concerning a missing child or adult, road closings, law enforcement emergencies and hazardous material spills).

How does CodeRED work?
CodeRED delivers the message through a high-speed telephone calling system to a phone number registered in the system. City staff will select a "call area" and the phone numbers will be matched up electronically to the addresses. A pre-recorded message will be sent out via the telephone with information about the situation and instructions. You will see the phone number 866-419-5000 appear on your caller ID. If you missed the call, you can call the number back to listen to the pre-recorded message.

How do I make sure that I am notified?
Initially, the City will use telephone company records to create its notification list. However, residents should not assume they are in the system. You should register particularly if you have moved or changed your phone number in the last year or if you prefer to be contacted on your cell or business phone.

Registration is available by calling City Hall at 909-394-6218 during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will need to provide your first and last name, physical street address (no P.O. Boxes), city, state, zip code, primary phone number and alternate phone numbers.

West Nile Virus & Mosquito Abatement
How is the virus spread?

Mosquitoes first acquire the virus by feeding on a bird with the virus in its blood. The virus then lives in the host and is transmitted to a new host through the mosquito's saliva when it bites a person or animal. The incubation from the time of the mosquito bite to infection of the virus is approximately 5-15 days. However, most individuals do not show any symptoms of the virus. For those that do, some symptoms include: fever, headache, body aches, mild skin rash, or swollen lymph nodes. Less than 0.01% of those infected will actually require hospitalization.

How can you protect yourself from West Nile Virus?

The most effective way to protect against the virus is mosquito abatement. Here are some mosquito abatement tips to keep in mind as we approach the summer months:

1. Minimize your time outdoors when mosquitoes are most active, typically at dawn
and dusk.
2. When outdoors, wear long pants, long sleeves, or other protective clothing.
3. Use insect repellent on areas of your body that are exposed.
4. Ensure that all doors and windows have tight fitting screens and that all old or torn screens are repaired.
5. Eliminate all sources of standing water that can support mosquito breeding.
6. If there is a significant mosquito problem where you live or work, please contact the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District.

For more information, please call the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District at (626) 814-9466.
