To: La Mesa alert list
I recently heard a house alarm going off for an extended time and I just received a message from a Los Ranchos (the subdivision immediately to our east) resident about a alarm somewhere in La Mesa that seems to go off every evening.
I urge you to not ignore an alarm, but to call it into 911.
If you are sure it is the same alarm going off over and over again, please let me know, and we will see that the homeowner gets it fixed. In addition to being a disruption to our peace and tranquility, it puts us all at risk. Once neighbors become accustomed to ignoring an alarm, that is just a setup to a tragic event when a house fire goes unreported.
Thank you for your assistance.
