SIAC Expands Support to Fine-Tune Alarm Ordinances


The Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) has amended its mission statement to expand the scope of its alarm ordinance support to U.S. cities considering the creation or improvement of fire alarm regulation. Retired Fire Chief Luther Fincher will manage the new undertaking as the SIAC National Fire Liaison.

“This is an exciting time for SIAC. Our board members changed our mission statement, allowing us to assist fire departments across the nation who might be looking for help with a model fire alarm ordinance,” says Stan Martin, SIAC executive director. “We are fortunate and honored to have a fire professional with Luther’s qualifications and stature on our team. His knowledge, experience and network of contacts will help SIAC find cooperative solutions to local fire alarm issues.”

Fincher, who has spent 21 years as a fire chief with the Charlotte Fire Department, will work with communities nationwide to assist in the development of effective fire alarm ordinances.

“This move was prompted by requests from fire departments for ordinance information and an increase in the number of onerous ordinances starting to surface,” Martin says. “We will diligently defend against any ordinance that significantly impacts response times to emergency fire signals and Luther is the perfect liaison to lead the way.”
