Reducing unnecessary alarm dispatches requires teamwork from everyone in the security industry. To assist in awarding companies with these high standards, the Security Industry Alarm Coalition (SIAC) and the False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA) welcomed the Installation Quality (IQ) Certification Program as a new sponsor of the Police Dispatch Quality (PDQ) award.

“It’s a good partnership because the IQ program and their members subscribe to practices that parallel our effort to ensure alarm systems work properly, minimizing alarm dispatches,” said SIAC executive director Stan Martin. “IQ’s involvement with our PDQ award demonstrates that high quality installations go hand-in-hand with superior alarm management practices.”

IQ’s award sponsorship will be effective for the 2011 PDQ award.
