When I think about protecting a business or residence, it’s funny how the famous quote from Jack Nicholson’s character Colonel Jessop from a Few Good Men come to mind.

“Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom.”

The United States Fire Administration has pronounced May 6-12 as Arson Awareness Week this year. This year’s theme—Prevent Youth Firesetting—zeroes in on our need as communities and individuals to create actionable plans to prevent arson in our buildings and on our properties. A collaborative effort with emergency departments, communities, law enforcement and property owners is essential to prevent arson and, more generally, fire hazards at large. The U.S. Fire Administration uses Arson Awareness Week to remind all of us of our need to have comprehensive fire protection plans in place that include alarm systems, sprinklers, and escape routes.

An epidemic of job site-related theft is going on everywhere. The only way to stop criminals is to catch them with a construction site alarm system like Secure Pacific’s. As the largest private locally-owned and monitored verified security solution in the Puget Sound, we’re the experts.
