“FARA has developed false alarm reduction information for both public safety and industry. Thousands of hours have developed and strengthened the model ordinance, the information bulletins, and all the documentation associated to false alarm reduction. FARA provides the membership with the tools necessary to help reduce false alarms to enhance officer safety. FARA assists membership to get needed answers by pinging the membership base for the information the requesters needs.
I, personally, took advantage of all of these invaluable resources when I first started in this role. I was really new to the false alarm reduction effort and needed plenty of guidance to succeed in my position. FARA and the membership were my saving grace. All of the help I received made it possible for me to keep a well-oiled machine moving in the right direction.
The organization’s dedication to false alarm reduction drives the entire industry to think bigger and helps all vested parties better understand the importance of this critical mission.”
“Networking, resources and information sharing are some of the many benefits of a FARA membership.”
I was first invited to speak at the FARA Symposium in 2010. I was nervous that, as an alarm guy, I would be seen as “the enemy.” Instead, I was welcomed into FARA as one of their own. Someone with the same goal of reducing false dispatches. I now consider many of my fellow FARA members as good friends.
I have attended all of the Symposiums since 2010 and have been invited to speak at most. It is one of my favorite events of the year. We have a great time and are able to share effective strategies toward our goal. I always learn more from the public safety members than I am able to share. I also get to share many of the incredible FARA guides and documents with my customers and help explain how serious false dispatches are.”
“As an industry member, FARA has given me an understanding of Public Safety’s goals in false alarm reduction. It has helped me to establish clear views and objectives within the company.”
“I give FARA the utmost appreciation for the wealth of knowledge and resources it has provided to our agency over the years, such as networking opportunities with other law enforcement agencies and alarm industry professionals from all over the US and Canada and documented guidance on false alarm resolution best practices. Without FARA, the Galveston Police Department would not be able to tackle the false alarm issues we face on a daily basis.”
