Do You Have A Plan?
In recent news reports of crime are all around us. Criminals entering places of business brandishing guns to hold up the establishments. Retail stores, restaurants and many more face real potential dangers in their daily lives. I??m wondering what plans have our Townsquared retailers have in place?
It??s difficult to dial 911 when you have a gun in your face. The best thing you can do is accommodate the criminal by giving him what he wants and hope he walks away without causing any harm. The problem??_ he gets away and perhaps will strike some other day.
Here is a quick inexpensive safety net that can be installed without much expense or costly monthly payments. If you have a retail location adjacent to another retail location, you have strength in numbers.
You can install a simple wire with a light and a sound alarm and when you are in a critical situation you press a secret toggle or button which sounds off the alarm in the retail location next door in your neighbors place of business, alerting them you are in an emergency state and they need to dial 911 on your behalf. You can reciprocate and provide the same installation to assist their safety. One wire, one light bulb, one buzzer can make a big difference in your safety and the safety of your customers.
