  1. Last night we lost power in our area. The alarm boxes in our home were beeping and our three little dogs were going crazing with the noise. I called the Guardian number and a very nice lady walked me through taking the main box apart and unhooking the battery back up. She told me to call when the power came back on and someone would walk me through the process of putting everything back together. I called this morning and a man walked me through this process. I would like someone to know how kind and patient these two employees were to assist me and hope they get some recognition for the service they provided me. I have owned my own businesses and was an AVP for Citigroup. These two are very valuable to your company and I am spreading the word to family and friends about your service. Thank you very much!
