Good works by Prestige Alarm in Birmingham
Here's a nice story to begin your weekend with: Prestige Alarm and Specialty Products, Inc. of Birmingham, Ala., donated an E3 Series Expandable Emergency Evacuation System, manufactured by Gamewell-FCI, to a nearby Ronald McDonald House. According to a Honeywell Fire Systems press release, Prestige's CEO Eddie Harden decided to donate a system to the Ronald McDonald House, a facility for families to stay while family members are in the hospital, when his kids offered to help pay for the system.

Eddie Harden, CEO of Prestige Alarm, recalls being asked for pricing on the fire alarm system. His young children overheard and offered to help pay for it. This ultimately moved Harden to donate the system in his children's names, along with the installation and three years of monitoring and maintenance services. "I've seen families receive the blessing of the Ronald McDonald House. It meant a lot to me to be a part of the new facility and provide a system that will protect lives there for many years," says Harden. To ensure split-second detection, notification and communications, Harden utilized a Gamewell-FCI E3 Series system, operating on a 625k broadband pipeline with the bandwidth to ensure a fully-loaded panel delivers immediate results. One UTP (unshielded twisted-pair) of wires integrates the House's entire fire protection system while reducing its overall footprint and facilitating efficient installation and troubleshooting.Here's the press release.
