Ensuring the Safety and Security of Your Most Important Assets (AFA Protective Systems)

When was the last time you thought about the integrity and function of your fire alarm and security systems? Have you ever considered what would happen if your life-safety and security systems didn’t work properly in the event of an emergency? If a fire occurs, you expect all systems will function properly, alerting staff and customers to get to safety. You trust that your burglar alarm systems will function properly during a break in. However, if these systems fail to operate as intended, the consequences can be dire.

It’s easy to take the effectiveness of your fire alarm and security system for granted. Therefore, you need a fire alarm vendor and security partner with experience, reliability, and dedication to your system’s performance. For a busy retail or corporate manager, you can’t afford to make a mistake regarding your fire alarm vendor or security provider—a mistake that could mean the difference between all or nothing.

Founded in 1873, AFA has delivered best-in-class solutions for installing, monitoring, and servicing fire alarm and security systems. AFA’s story began almost 150 years ago, under the name of Automatic Signal Telegraph Co. of NYC, with authorization from the city mayor to automatically transfer fire alarm signals to the headquarters of the city’s fire department.

Over the next century and a half, AFA continued to innovate. AFA was one of the first companies to transfer alarm signals over telephone lines. AFA developed the first multiplex signal transmission system. AFA also pioneered computerized fire alarm and security monitoring. As a leader in fire alarm and security services for over a century, AFA has earned the trust of its customers by delivering exceptional levels of responsiveness, dependability, and thoroughness across the scope of its services, including:
