As a Chamber member, I would like to see better opportunities to showcase our line of products and services to benefit the City Of Cuyahoga Falls residents. For example, many of our city seniors would just love to have the same opportunity that the City Of Parma does with the SAFE AT HOME Grant Program, initiated by me in Sept of 2009. Tom Beres of The Channel 3 News advertised it on the 6 and 11pm news that evening as the first grant program of its kind. It enables 155 seniors to receive “free” medical alert units if they meet the qualifications of living alone, owning their own home, and low annual income. We’re in our 3rd year and would love to expand this wonderful program to other area cities, what better a city than our very own! http://www.safenetsecurity.com/safe-med-alert/ Please call Julie Anderson at SafeNet Security with any questions at PH: (330) 957-0259.
