1999 CARE Summits Receive Positive Feedback

BETHESDA, Md.—The 25 summits held by the Coordinated Alarm Reduction Effort (CARE) in 1999 received very high praise from attendees. The summits bring together law enforcement and alarm industry professionals to review what works in false alarm reduction. CARE, which is the follow-up project to the Model States Program, has concentrated on areas where there is demand for a summit and areas where false alarm rates are high.

The 25 summits averaged 30 people each with about two-thirds of attendees from law enforcement and the rest from the alarm business. At press time, one summit had already been held in Houston on Jan. 18, and another is set for March 22 in Oklahoma City. In addition, 14 other cities have been targeted for summits in 2000, including Orlando, Fla., Manchester, N.H., Pittsburgh and Los Angeles.

A new coordinator for the summits has been hired. Adrienne Auzenne is based at the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association’s (NBFAA) headquarters in Bethesda, Md. For more information, contact her at (301) 585-1855, x126 or by E-mail at or
