Vector Security Customers in Johnston County (N.C.) to Benefit From Automated Secure Alarm Protocol
ASAP delivers alarm notification information from central stations directly to public safety answering points via computer rather than by phone.
PITTSBURGH – Vector Security announced that Johnston, N.C. is the latest municipality to go live with their Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP) technology.
The program automates communication between 911 centers and alarm monitoring central stations, resulting in improved accuracy and speed of emergency response.
This will reduce the number of phone calls and processing times at emergency response centers as well as eliminate human error and miscommunication between operators, according to Vector.
“As a security provider, we seek ways to promote ASAP’s value to municipalities and public agencies, and help other alarm companies implement it for the greater good of the industry and the safety of our communities,” says Anita Ostrowski, vice president of central station services, Vector Security.
ASAP was created in partnership with the Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA) and the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO).
