We are nearing the end of updating the LaMoure County Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan. For more information: https://lamourecountyhazardplan.com/
Don’t stay silent. It’s time to speak up all month long.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which first began in 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence as a Day of Unity to connect battered women’s advocates across the country.
Domestic violence affects millions, both women and men, of every race, religion, culture and status. It’s not just punches and black eyes -- it’s yelling, humiliation, stalking, manipulation, coercion, threats and isolation. It’s stealing a paycheck, keeping tabs online, non-stop texting, constant use the silent treatment, or calling someone stupid so often they believe it.
Nearly three out of four Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence. Now is time to take a stand. Support survivors and speak out against domestic violence all month long.
If you are in danger, call or text 911 or the U.S. National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 and TTY 1-800-787-3224.
Public Alerts can be sent to inform or request the public for assistance. Public Alerts can be sent on land line telephones, cellular and smart phones, North Dakota Lottery messaging boards and Interstate Highway messaging boards.
LaMoure County can send a public alert through its CodeRED system. Please consider signing up your cellular or smart phone to receive a call or text message. LaMoure County can also request a Statewide alert if the criteria is met for an Amber, Silver or Blue Alert. For more information:
