The City of Cape Girardeau is implementing a new false alarm reduction plan. 

 Every year the Cape Girardeau Fire and Police Departments respond to thousands of false alarm calls which divert resources away from responding to legitimate emergency situations. 


The goal of this new program is to minimize the burden on public safety personnel and reduce the rising annual costs of these responses to the general public.
