City Partners with Eastern Shore Human Trafficking Task Force,

GOCCP, Aglow International for Human Trafficking Conference

Salisbury –The Eastern Shore Human Trafficking Task Force, the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention, the City of Salisbury, and Aglow Mid-Atlantic will sponsor a one-day conference on human trafficking. This free conference will take place on January 30th, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in room 153 of the Teacher Education and Technology building at Salisbury University. Lunch will be provided. 

Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan, law enforcement investigators, prosecutors and other experts will be on hand to discuss a range of topics central to the understanding of the scourge of human trafficking. Topics will include:

· Who are the most likely targets for human trafficking? Who is most vulnerable?

· The internet and social media; How predators use technology to target and trap their victims

· How you, your friends, family and neighbors can help prevent human trafficking

· Maryland’s laws and law enforcement

· Available resources

In 2014, 396 human trafficking survivors were identified and provided services in Maryland—nearly double the number in the previous year. It is likely that many more victims either did not, or could not come forward.

This conference is FREE and open to all members of the public, but a reservation is required. To reserve your spot, please email: SalisburyConferenceJan30@gmail.com

This Conference is sponsored by the City of Salisbury, the Eastern Shore Human Trafficking Task Force, and Aglow Mid-Atlantic Region.

SFD Responds to Thanksgiving Morning Blaze

Salisbury – In the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day the Salisbury Fire Department was alerted and responded to a fire at the College Lane Apartments. All three Salisbury Fire Stations responded and found fire evident from the second and third floors of one apartment building.

SFD personnel acted quickly to extinguish the fire and evacuate residents who were in danger. Additional SFD units were requested to respond, and assistance was offered by the Fruitland, Delmar, and Hebron Fire Departments.

The fire was contained to the exterior balconies of two units, with some fire extension to the attic area of the building. Smoke damage was contained to the two units directly involved.

Ultimately all apartment units were evacuated without incident or injury to occupants or SFD personnel. Two families (7 total persons) were displaced and are being assisted by the American Red Cross. As a result of the rapid response of SFD personnel, only two of the sixteen units within the building sustained damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Office of the State Marshall. City Neighborhood Services and Code Compliance were called to assist.
SFD responded with 13 units and 32 personnel.
“A situation such as this one would obviously be a tragedy at any time—but for these families to be displaced on Thanksgiving is a truly terrible misfortune,” said Salisbury Mayor, Jake Day. “We are thankful that everyone made it out safe; we are thankful for the assistance of the Red Cross—today and anytime there is a local family experiencing crisis; and we’re thankful for our firefighters, who answer the call of duty whether it comes on a weekday, weekend, or Thanksgiving Day. With their swift action and bravery, SFD was able to contain the situation and save the residents from what certainly could have been a much, much worse outcome. I pledge our continued assistance to these families, to get them settled, and to help them have the best possible holiday season.”
