Nuisance Alarm Unit Members Wanted!
Description: The Nuisance Alarm Unit (NAU) assists with addressing false alarms that occur at commercial businesses and personal residences across the City of Round Rock. Addressing these false alarms saves the RRPD and the City of Round Rock in time and resources by helping to avoid response to unnecessary alarm dispatch requests.
Date/Time: Since most residences are more easily reached during evening/weekend hours and most businesses are reached during day time hours, NAU needs assistance during weekday AND evening/weekend hours to make phone calls and conduct site visitations.
If interested: Email Volunteer Coordinator Abby at firstname.lastname@example.org
TAP Callers Wanted!
Description: The volunteers of the Telephone Assurance Program (TAP) provide daily welfare checks on our seniors.
Date/Time: Each TAP caller is assigned a particular day of the week (Mon-Sun); on the assigned day, the caller calls each TAP senior between 7:00am and 8:30am or 9:00am. We need callers for various days and can chat about which days you might prefer! Our goal is to have enough callers for a backup list and for a second set of callers so we can offer this service to more seniors in our area!
If interested: Email Volunteer Coordinator (Abby at email@example.com) to learn the details of the program, what options you have for participation, and to schedule an informal training to get you plugged in.
