Cayman Islands Prospect Red Bay Community Group Offers Free Alarms to Residents

From Prospect Red Bay Community Group.

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, (November 20, 2018) The Prospect Red Bay Community Group (formerly the Prospect Community group) is giving away free window and door alarms to every home in the Prospect and Red Bay area.

This extraordinary gesture has been made possible because the group’s Community Emergency Response Team won first place in the 2017 annual CERT Challenge and decided to use the winnings to provide a siren system for the community.

“When we won the CERT Challenge and realized we had $6,000 to spend we wanted to use the funds to do something positive for as many people in our community as possible,” said the group’s Executive Committee Chairperson, Ms. Sabrina Turner. “We decided on the alarms because they can be placed on any window or door in the home and they add another level of security and awareness to our existing neighbourhood watch.”

While being light and compact in size, the alarms have a piercing 120 decibel siren which is loud enough to call attention in a variety of situations. They can be installed to any surface in seconds and no tools are required.

The free giveaway takes place on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd November between 6-8pm at the Seafarers Hall on Victory Avenue. To receive an alarm, residents are asked to bring a current utility bill in their name or their voters ID to confirm they live in the area. In addition to the alarms, residents will also receive free neighbourhood watch window decals.

“The catchment area for our group begins from Selkirk Avenue and extends to the Flow telephone exchange in Spotts, on both the land and sea side,” explained Ms. Turner. “We are very excited about the giveaway and look forward to receiving a great response from residents that are able to come to the Seafarers Hall. For the seniors in our area who can’t make it to the Hall, we will also be organizing a delivery at a later date in the future.”

“On behalf of our group I would like to say thank you to Hazard Management Cayman Islands and the Cayman Islands Red Cross for hosting the CERT Challenge which made this all possible.” said Ms. Turner.
