Being in the security business, the goal of our members is to protect the customers they serve. We want them to be safe in their homes and businesses.
We accomplish this through selling and properly installing equipment designed to meet their needs.
What happens, though, when a natural disaster strikes? How do we respond? What should an electronic security company do in a tragic situation like the devastation to life and property from the recent tornado in Joplin, MO?
First and foremost, we need to take care of our customers to the best of our abilities. This means compassion and consideration when a community faces the issues of cleanup and rebuilding from massive destruction.
Working to help those in need is a wonderful first step you can take if you operate in an area facing a disaster of this magnitude. Every little bit helps. Your involvement demonstrates your commitment to the community.
It just might be that you give your employees several days off to help give out food to those in need. You might donate food or resources yourself. Whatever your choice, your commitment says a lot about our industry. Each electronic security company that steps forward helps the industry as a whole.
We can't solve all the world's problems, but we can show how much we care when a flood, tornado or hurricane batters a community. Stay engaged.
