Edition for Firefighter Readers
recently been looking......
our business model, in particular our reason for
being in business and for what purpose. After
looking at all the alternatives, we think Ben
Franklin had the best approach. Each day, in the
morning, he prayed to be helped to do something good
that day. In the evening prayer he asked if he had
been successful in his goal or if there was
something he could have done to better accomplish
Franklin's approach, we have concluded that on line
selling through web stores has advantages for the
seller, and in many cases to the consumer, but not
always best. The downside is that interaction with
live people, personalized service, and the ability to
solve problems for the consumer is lost. That
diminishes the ability to do our best for those we
serve. That is why we are returning to a more personal
way of doing business. Our new web page for fire
departments reflects our goal of making shopping with
us easy, friendly, informative, and affordable.
new firefighters web page address is http//falcon4firefighters.us.

Small Town America - We help make
Some very unlikely places are
targets for armed robbery. Those places may
come as a surprise to you!
of us would think that the main targets for armed
robbery would be banks, credit unions and retail
stores. The fact is that governmental offices
(court clerks, county license & tax offices,
and utility offices may often have significant
amounts of cash on hand. Worse yet, these offices
often have no way to get help in a hurry.
there is cash, there is the potential for robbery.
The average response time for an emergency call
through a commercial security system is ten
minutes or more. The average robbery is committed
less than three minutes. Burglaries take a little
longer - around four minutes

America's Top Value P25 Radios!
KNG Series radios by Relm Wireless are designed to
last up to 82 years!
P25 Radio Gives You The Best Value down the road? Some
would say, the Big "M". Others (like us)
would have a different answer. The fact is that
there are four considerations used to evaluate
"Value". Let's start with where the
product is made. Made in America means American
workers, paying taxes and purchasing goods and
services in the USA. Relm Wireless manufacturers
just one thing - P25 radios, and they do it in
Melbourne, FL USA! They will be here when needed
"down the road". We think that is
important! As for the other three
considerations, we think you need to answer that for
yourself - with a little help from us. Click here

Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr......
of our August Attaboy Award for speaking out on the
need for community involvement and an armed
Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke is a worthy recipient
of this months Attaboy award. Thank you Sheriff
Clarke for standing up for the right thing, even
when your own political party threw you under the
bus. Keep on keeping on Sheriff Clarke! We need more
people like you!
Sheriff Clarke advocates an armed citizenry (as
guaranteed by our Constitution) being the front
lines for defense against crime and hazards. We
agree with this position. The fact is that
traditional security systems, 911 reporting, and
centralized dispatching simply does not work in true
emergency situations. The good news is that we
have a solution that DOES work. If you are
involved in municipal government crime prevention
and control, give us a call at 800.489.2611 and ask
us about the SafeCity Program.

A.C. Roper of the Birmingham Alabama Police
Department is often quoted with a comment regarding
the need, and the benefit, of picking good working
partners. It goes something like this - If
you are the smartest guy in the room, you've got a
problem. To that, we might add - If
anyone tells you there is only one solution to a
problem, you need to meet some new people.
Hopefully, that will be us!

software come up with multi-page documents designed to
legally insist of what you cannot do with the software
you purchased, a guy by the name of Dr. Richard Hipps
takes a contrarian position. The terms and conditions
of the SQLite software licensing agreement, developed
by Dr. Hipps, simply states - May you do good and not
you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others.
May you share freely, never taking more than you give. As
for me, I want to be a little more like Dr. Hipps, and
a little less like Bill Gates. How about you?
