Gunning Wins NBFAA Award
George Gunning, CEO of Monrovia, Calif.-based USA Alarm Systems, has been named as the 2004 recipient of the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association’s (NBFAA) Morris F. Weinstock Person of the Year award. The achievement was announced at an evening dinner at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino March 30 in conjunction with the NBFAA’s Spring Conference and ISC West.
Gunning, vice president of the NBFAA, represented the alarm industry in 2003 on the city of Los Angeles’ Alarm Task Force that attempted to formulate an alarm policy for the city and has been one of the leaders in the fight against verified response. The award, considered the NBFAA’s top honor, was initiated by the family of Weinstock to honor the lifetime work of the NBFAA founder and past president.
California Association to Honor Gold
The California Alarm Association (CAA) announced at ISC West that longtime industry leader Lessing Gold will receive its annual George Weinstock award for lifetime achievement.
Gold, one of the first 25 entrants into the SSI Hall of Fame (see February 2004 issue) will receive the award at the CAA’s Winter Convention Dec. 4-5 in San Francisco. Gold, currently a partner with MSK in Los Angeles, has been an influential member of the industry, serving for more than 40 years with the NBFAA and CAA.
Roger and Bruce Westphal of Pacheco, Calif.’s Bay Alarm were the recipients of last year’s award.
