New United Security ™ Alarm Response Service Helps Business and Commercial Property Owners Manage Municipal Alarm Charges

Alarm Response Center Keeps Costs for Emergency Municipal Assistance Down, Helps Protect Business Assets, Personnel in an Emergency

MULLICA HILL, NJ--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - United Security Protection Services™ has launched a new service to help business and property owners more effectively manage the cost of onsite alarm verification and response and protect their assets. The new United Security Alarm Response Center assesses an alarm, determines whether it is a false or actual alert, and sends fully trained, licensed and insured United Security Alarm Response personnel to the site before enlisting municipal emergency assistance. This verification process helps business and property owners avoid incurring additional fees for municipal emergency services such as police and fire department responses until actually needed.

Many municipalities now require confirmation of an emergency before municipal emergency personnel such as the fire department or the police department can be dispatched in response to an alarm. The United Security Alarm Response Center handles this for property or business owners, and provides a quicker and safer way to protect the assets at the site, including employees.

"The United Security Alarm Response Program has been a value-added tool in our security efforts, offering professional, reliable and timely service while saving us thousands in potential false alarm fines over this past year," said Joseph Biffar, Corporate Loss Prevention Manager, Chico's FAS (CHS). "I highly recommend this service to any organization looking for an innovative and dependable solution that provides significant cost savings year after year."

The new service provides onsite verification for first response of an alarm activated by an intruder, weather-related alarms, or accidently triggered alarms. The service includes:

  • Live dispatchers on duty 24/7, 365 days per year.
  • Site inspection by professional security consultants at program initiation.
  • Customized site inspection checklists.
  • A minimum of three Alarm Response Partners on call 24/7/365 for every site.
  • Live confirmation from responding officers while on location.
  • On-site verification prior to 911-notification.
  • Next business day e-mailed reports.
  • Monthly call reports.
  • Signs and window stickers upon request.

"The United Security Alarm Response Center provides cost benefits to business and property owners, as well as municipalities," said Chelsea Cleary, president of United Security. "The Alarm Response Service gives our clients peace of mind by protecting assets and personnel in alert situations, and at the same time, helps allow local fire, police and emergency personnel to respond to those in real need."
