TMA’s Automated Secure Alarm Protocol reaches 90th U.S. municipality

MCLEAN, Va.—The Monitoring Association (TMA) has announced the addition of the 90th U.S. municipality to its expanding Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP) service network.

The Pasco County, Fla., Emergency Services 9-1-1 Communications Center (ECC) is the 90th ECC in the U.S. and the 10th ECC in the state of Florida to implement TMA’s ASAP service.

Pasco County went live on Tuesday, June 13th and Wednesday, June 14th with Vector Security, Rapid Response Monitoring, Securitas, Affiliated Monitoring, AT&T Digital Life, Tyco (Johnson Controls), Security Central, Protection One, National Monitoring Center, Vivint, Stanley Security, Guardian Protection, Alert 360 and ADS Security. Brinks Home Security and ADT will be brought online at a later date.

ASAP delivers a method to help us achieve these goals by providing a service that improves efficiencies in the processing of in-progress alarm calls, increasing our ability to reduce response times and provide higher levels of service to the citizens and businesses in Pasco County.”
