Road Safety

  • Residents who must drive should use extreme caution.
  • Drive slowly.
  • Dangerous driving conditions often result in an increase in accidents to which APD and AFR are prepared to respond. Many minor crashes also occur that do not require APD or AFR. We ask those residents to call 242-COPS or go online to report a crash.

Fire Safety

  • Portable space heaters need at least 3 feet of empty space between the heater and all other objects.
  • Fireplaces should be professionally serviced each year.
  • Gas stoves should not be used to heat homes, as there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Additional fire safety tips.

Pet Safety

  • If you're cold outside, pets will be cold too, and they should be brought inside to stay warm. 
  • Low and moderate income residents of Albuquerque seeking a doghouse for their pet can apply for the Animal Welfare Department Doghouse Lottery.
