Likewise, we have jointly addressed critical issues facing providers of monitoring and life safety equipment and services. Most recently, we worked hand-in-hand to address the needs and challenges of monitoring centers at the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic. I am very pleased and honored to have Ms. Scanlon as our 2021 keynote speaker.”
