Vector Security® Wins 2012 FARA Industry False Alarm
Reduction Achievement Award
recognizes company's false alarm reduction efforts
PITTSBURGH, PA (May 10, 2012): Vector Security® received
the prestigious Industry False Alarm Reduction
Achievement Award from the False Alarm Reduction
Association (FARA) at the association’s annual
conference in Albuquerque earlier this month.
Presented annually to a security systems company that
demonstrates meaningful reduction in false alarm rates,
the award acknowledges the effectiveness of the
industry-leading false alarm reduction program developed
by Vector Security. To win the award, a company must
first be nominated by a public safety agency and then
selected as winner through a voting process at FARA’s
annual meeting that includes industry peers, alarm
association representatives and public safety officials.
"We are honored to be a second-time recipient of this
noteworthy award," said Pam Petrow, President and CEO of
Vector Security. "Reducing false alarms is extremely
important to us, as theynot only consume valuable
financial and human resources, but they also distract
first responders from performing their core
"Vector Security employs a 12-point false alarm
reduction and prevention program so when we dispatch
help to any of our customers, authorities know the need
for a response is real, which helps save precious time
in an emergency," said Anita Ostrowski, Vice President
of Central Station Services for Vector Security.
Ostrowski noted that the effectiveness of the false
alarm reduction program at Vector Security is evidenced
by the fact that its dispatch rates have decreased
consistently over the last several years. The company’s
false alarm reduction program has also been honored with
the Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) Award and by the
Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA).
