As part of the Don’t Make It Easy program, the City is asking for your help and participation to continue raising awareness about simple steps you can take to keep safe. Lake Forest residents are invited to record and submit a video of them sharing safety tips for a chance to be featured in this upcoming safety video. Participant videos who are selected will be entered into a raffle drawing for a chance to win a Wireless Security Camera and other unique safety prizes! Winners will be notified on Monday, April 17.
