It is here at last. On Tuesday we had the roof alarm fitted. It is a serious piece of equipment and should deter even the most determined of lead thieves not to go up on the roof. Anyone doing so will hear a very loud alarm and a loud message telling them to get down as they are being recorded.

If you live in the immediate area and you hear the alarm you do not need to do anything as it will shut down after a time but start again if intruders return. Immediately the alarm is triggered the company is alerted and they contact PCC members who will attend and act as appropriate.

So far there have been no false alarms and we are told that these are rare occurrences so residents should not be inconvenienced.
