All are welcome to a meeting on Monday 17th Nov at 8pm in the Old School Hall, Kilbarron, when we hope to set up a Text Alert scheme for our area. The Community Alert programme is a community-based crime prevention, care and safety programme for rural communities. It has a particular emphasis on older and more vulnerable people in rural communities. The Text Alert programme allows local residents to report suspicious behaviour in the area and, through gardaí, this is passed on to the rest of the community through text messages. In our area we have in excess of 50 monitored personal alarms in the homes of elderly and vulnerable neighbours, and it is hoped that family representatives of this group will attend the meeting.
