If it leaves everyone stumped, it could get “oak”-ward. I’m sorry for writing this.

Comment on SCHOOL’S OUT: Lafayette Elementary celebrates street safety by Sue T. https://westseattleblog.com/2024/06/schools-out-lafayette-elementary-celebrates-street-safety/#comment-2564882 Sat, 22 Jun 2024 06:05:20 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1094495#comment-2564882 The once-decorative crosswalks at the California & Lander arterial intersection next to the school have faded away after 10-15 years of daily wear and tear. I hope they might be replaced with white ladder-style paint bars as a part of the street safety program.

Comment on WADING POOLS: Season starts Saturday, but West Seattle is down one. Here’s why by Admiral-2009 https://westseattleblog.com/2024/06/wading-pools-season-starts-saturday-but-west-seattle-is-down-one-heres-why/#comment-2564878 Sat, 22 Jun 2024 05:36:26 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1094473#comment-2564878 Kyle – Wading pools to my knowledge do not employ lifeguards.  They have attendants that monitor the chlorine levels and periodically kick the kids out to add more.

It looks like him. Luckily our neighbors saw him, called us, and we both came out and told him to get off our property or else we’d call the police. He yelled back ‘Go back inside and I’ll leave,’ dumping his beer out on his way down the driveway and moving down the hill towards Wildwood. Scary scenario… glad he was apprehended.

Thanks for that insight, James. I didn’t realize that was how 988 works. I also thought it was a locally answered phone number that would get appropriate services enroute in mental health crisis situations.

I’m sure I’ll be scolded but public safety is important.

The care was much like you say, in the past. Including shock therapy in much too high doses. But, it doesn’t mean they’re all like the Jack Nicholson movie. I think we have more knowledge now and could create a better way to rehabilitation.

I tried calling 988 for a person who was completely naked and sleeping next to a building in California Ave SW. The person on the other side of the line informed me he was in a call center in New Jersey, and that 988, “people in crisis” as we know it, is primarily meant for people having suicidal ideations. He told me I needed to call 911 and request EMS and a public safety officer. The 911 operator patched me through to SFD who told me to ask the still naked person if they needed medical attention. SFD concluded their part and I don’t know if a public safety officer ever arrived. The person get dressed and made their way to the bus bench outside 7-11. I want a separate line/service in Seattle that helps people who may be experiencing mental health crises, but I don’t think 988 works as many of us thought or intended.
