TMA Onboards 63rd Jurisdiction to ASAP-to-PSAP Service
ASAP-to-PSAP service is designed to increase the accuracy and efficiency of calls for service from alarm companies to PSAPs.
MCLEAN, Va. — The Monitoring Association (TMA) announces the onboarding of its 63rd PSAP in the United States — The Metropolitan Nashville Davidson County Tenn. Department of Emergency Communications.
Developed in partnership between TMA and the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO), ASAP-to-PSAP service is designed to increase the accuracy and efficiency of calls for service from alarm companies to PSAPs.
Davidson County is the fifth PSAP in the state of Tennessee to implement the ASAP program following Bradley County’s implementation last summer.
It went live on over the course of three days beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 21 with Nashville-based ADS Security, Vector Security and Rapid Response Monitoring, then followed by Security Central, Alert 360, Guardian Protection Services, National Monitoring Center, AT&T Digital Life, Affiliated Monitoring, Protection One, Brinks Home Security, and Tyco (Johnson Controls). Vivint and ADT are expected to go-live with Metro Nashville in the upcoming weeks.
“The security industry is in the business of life safety. Manufacturers and service providers collectively dedicate their resources to the innovation of products and services that protect and save lives,” remarks TMA President Don Young.
He continues, “TMA’s ASAP-to-PSAP service is one of the most effective tools available to today’s monitoring centers and local/regional emergency communications centers to increase the speed and accuracy of emergency communications, which ultimately results in reduced response times and increased opportunities to save lives.”
