Alpharetta may install 911 emergency call boxes in parks

By The Associated Press

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) — The city of Alpharetta will consider a move that it hopes will make its parks safer.

The Alpharetta's City Council will discuss at its Monday meeting installing emergency 911 call boxes in Wills Park, Webb Bridge Park and North Park.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Irvine, California-based Case Systems, Inc. would install eight boxes — four at Wills Parks and two each at Webb Bridge Park and North Park. The box allows users to easily contact emergency services including police, fire and emergency medical personnel.

The installation would cost the city $64,400. Funds would be taken from another park-security initiative that would have replaced lightning detection equipment in the three parks. The city says because of upgraded phones and apps, that equipment is no longer necessary.
