Harvey and Irma sounds the title of a TV comedy show. We know it’s not. Unless you’ve just returned from the moon, you know they are the biggest one-two punch of hurricanes in history to hit the mainland of the United States.
We know the devastation on a personal level, and through the contacts we have in the security industry. While we don’t often weigh in on this blog about these types of events, SIAC believes in this case there’s an important reminder for the electronic security industry.
Cleanup after environmental disasters is a colossal issue. Doing it right is tremendously important. Protecting lives and property during remediation ensures the safety of property and lives. Our industry plays a huge role in these situations. Please instruct/remind your sales people not to take advantage of situations by overcharging customers or insurance companies through the addition of equipment to replace damaged systems with “extras” not part of the original installation.
If you do business in areas hit by disasters, SIAC strongly encourages you to go above and beyond the call of duty. Help others. Serve the community. Make sure every service call or installation is done to the highest industry standards.
People’s lives depend on the electronic security industry. In times of tragedy, our role is even more important. Please make sure your business steps up to the plate. That’s good for you, your local community and our industry at large. Go above and beyond the call of duty.
