Wednesday, June 22, 2016

PITTSBURGH—The Automated Secure Alarm Protocol is now live in Durham and Kernersville, N.C., bringing almost 1,700 Vector Security customers with it.

“ASAP is an initiative we strongly believe in at Vector Security and we are proud to help enable this partnership between the public and private sectors,” Anita Ostrowski, Vector Security vice president of central station services, said in a prepared statement. “As such, we consistently seek ways to promote its value to municipalities and public agencies, and help other alarm companies implement it for the greater good of the security industry and the protection of our communities.”

ASAP to PSAP was created in partnership with CSAA and the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials, with Vector Security president and CEO Pam Petrow co-chairing the steering committee. Vector Security was the first alarm company to use ASAP in Richmond, Va. in 2012.

“We are excited to have the ASAP program in Kernersville. This program will certainly decrease the time from when an alarm is set off until the first responders arrive on the scene,” Ryan Spong, Kernersville, N.C., 911 communications manager, said in the announcement.
