Battle Over Fire Alarm Monitoring Continues in Illinois


The battle over fire monitoring continues in Illinois. Over the past several years, private industry has won several costly lawsuits to prevent government entities from creating monopolies to monitor fire alarms (See: http://www.siacinc.org/). Despite the best efforts of the electronic security industry, that could change.

Kevin Lehan of the Illinois Electronic Security Association (IESA) recently issued a communication regarding a June 25 meeting in Chicago. If you are a member of NFPA as of December 24, 2014, it is critically important that you attend, and vote on two issues that address the fire monitoring issue.

Go to SIAC’s Web site to read more, and the message from Lehan. We’ve attached the link above for your convenience.

If you are not a member of NFPA, you can still get involved. This is not just about Illinois. If efforts are successful there to restrict who can monitor, that could spread elsewhere in the country. The time to stop this is now. We urge you to step up.
