SIAC Embraces Social Media
FRISCO, Texas, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ — The Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) is stepping up its efforts to reach law enforcement, citizens and companies in the security industry by adopting several new social media tools. As part of its outreach program, SIAC is now plugged into three social networking tools – Twitter, LinkedIn and WordPress. Short messages will be frequently delivered via Twitter. LinkedIn will connect users with SIAC services. At WordPress, SIAC will blog on successful alarm reduction techniques and invite discussion and comments from viewers.
“Central to our mission is getting the word out about what we do,” said SIAC Executive Director Stan Martin. “We find repeatedly that as much as we deliver our message in meetings and conferences around the country, that there are still many groups who are unaware of the services we provide. The social media tools we now employ offer a great way to connect with many of our key constituents. To succeed in reducing the number of unnecessary alarm signals, people need to know who we are and the solutions we provide.”
As a free service to help improve alarm management practices, SIAC works closely with law enforcement agencies, along with elected officials, to implement proven cooperative approaches to reduce unnecessary alarms.
“We’re tremendously excited about where we’re headed and the value we provide our sponsors, local communities and the security industry. These new social media tools will help us educate key individuals and organizations on alarm management issues, and increase our investment in proven solutions,” Martin observed.
Follow these steps to connect with SIAC through the new services: For Twitter, go to www.twitter.com/siacinc, and register to follow SIAC initiatives. To access WordPress and SIAC’s blog, go to www.siacinc.wordpress.com, and follow the columns, respond or comment.

SIAC is comprised of four major North American security associations–Canadian Security Association (CANASA), Security Industry Association (SIA), Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA), and the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA)–representing one voice for the alarm industry on alarm management issues. SIAC’s primary charter is to significantly reduce calls for service while strengthening the lines of communication with law enforcement professionals and end users.
