Dutton resident wins $300 gas card from GibsonSingleton
GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys announced that the winner of our $300 gas card giveaway is Teresa Chandonnet of Dutton.
Chandonnet, a retired emergency room nurse, received her card from partners Ken Gibson and John Singleton. She said she takes care of her husband, who’s disabled, and does a lot of driving since the couple moved to Gloucester from Hampton about a year ago.
We at GibsonSingleton included the contest as part of a mailer sent to every home in Gloucester, Mathews, and Middlesex. Our mailer also contained a refrigerator magnet with frequently needed, non-emergency phone numbers, such as the Sheriff’s office, Fire and Rescue, Virginia State Police, Animal Control, Parks and Recreation, the library, and traffic/bridge information.
GibsonSingleton partner Ken Gibson said, “With gas prices still high, we wanted to help our neighbors get where they’re going this summer with a gas card giveaway.”
Partner John Singleton added: “We hope that the magnet will be a useful resource to people needing a number quickly. You hope you never need some of those numbers, but it’s nice to have them when you do.”
Additional Safety Information:
When should you call 911?
If you’re experiencing any type of emergency, call 911 immediately. Try to stay calm and let the operator ask you questions. Try to answer the questions as simply as possible, and remember to stay on the line until the operator tells you to hang up. Also, don’t hang up if you dial 911 accidentally. Stay on the line, or answer your phone right away if they call back. The police will be dispatched if 911 operators can’t rule out an actual emergency.
What is an emergency?
An emergency is a dangerous situation that requires immediate action from a first responder, such as a firefighter, police officer, emergency medical technician, or another individual trained to respond to a crisis. When you dial 911, you will be connected to an emergency operator who will determine if it’s an emergency.
Before you call, ask yourself these questions: 1) Has someone been seriously injured? 2) Does someone need immediate medical care? 3) Is a crime taking place? 4) Is someone in immediate danger? 5) Is there a fire? 6) Is there an immediate hazard, such as a power line down in the road?
Do your best to ensure it’s a real emergency before calling 911. When a 911 operator has to respond to a non-emergency call, valuable resources are diverted away from people who may be in serious danger.
What are examples of non-emergency calls to the Sheriff’s Department or Fire and Rescue?
In many other situations, you may want to speak with the police or Fire and Rescue employees, but you know it’s not an emergency. That’s when you may need non-emergency phone numbers for the police, firefighters, or other local government services. Examples of non-emergency calls include reporting a phone scam, requesting safety information, requesting someone to help develop a safety plan for your family, asking about office hours or services provided, making noise complaints, or reporting loose or barking dogs to Animal Control.
Anyone who didn’t receive a magnet with non-emergency numbers is welcome to call us GibsonSingleton at (804) 413-6e,777, or stop by the firm to pick one up at 4073 George Washington Memorial Highway, Hayes.
