Working together to serve those who serve others!
The City of Birmingham, like cities all over the USA, is in transition. former Mayor William Bell, community leaders, concerned citizens, and the corporate community decided that the transition could be a continued deterioration of neighborhoods, or the opportunity to take back and revitalize communities, one at a time; to make Birmingham a better place to live, work and play.
The first phase of the initiative began in the Woodlawn community with the establishment of the Community Policing and Revitalization (C.P.R.) Initiative over a half decade ago. Much progress has been made, but there is still much work to be done. After initial discussions with Mayor Bell and former C.P.R. Executive Director, Renita Higgins, it was concluded that a new program, called Safe-City could be of significant benefit in meeting a common goal of putting the Magic back in Birmingham.
Since that time, segments of the program have been started all over the USA with the little town of Seminary, MS being one of the first towns in the nation to implement the basics of the full Safe-City program.
At Falcon Community Services, we have been simultaneously in the process of developing wireless technology for improved community safety and disaster response over the past five years. Today, we offer three different systems beginning with HelpAlert which is ideally suited for smaller cities like Piedmont and Weaver, Alabama. ActionAlert was developed to address the need for improved classroom safety beginning with a pilot project at the DeArmanville School in Oxford, Alabama and the Lamar County Courthouse in Vernon, Alabama.
