The Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) is continuing to look for experts on a variety of standards. The positions will sit on their Emerging Technologies Committee, which is a division of its standards committee.
In particular, the committee is looking to land individuals who are knowledgeable about GPS/mobile services including mPERS, active shooter systems, video technology, telehealth, home automation and mass notification systems. Contact Morgan Hertel of Rapid Response Monitoring, and who chairs the subcommittee, if you are interested in participating.
SIAC encourages this type of participation to ensure new standards are aired through a diverse set of participants. That encourages dialogue and ensures stakeholders – from the different segments of the security industry to emergency responders like police and fire departments – are best represented in the process and through implementation.
In addition to those areas noted above, CSAA is also seeking experts from PSAPs, fire and medical services, and law enforcement, as well as those in the monitoring industry. SIAC has participated regularly in CSAA forums throughout the years and we encourage qualified individuals to step forward. Participation ensures your voice is heard. That’s important for individual companies and for our industry as a whole, as we continue to raise the bar on equipment and technology.
