Stuart Forchheimer receives FARA’s W. Rex Bell Associate Member of the Year Award

Maryland-based Homesafe Security Systems, a division of HS Technology Group that provides security system design and installation services to residential and commercial customers, announced Monday that its president, Stuart Forchheimer, was recently recognized by the False Alarm Reduction Association with its W. Rex Bell Associate Member of the Year Award.

According to FARA Executive Director Brad Ship, Forchheimer was named the winner of the award based on his efforts to develop working relationships with surrounding jurisdictions in Maryland to improve the reliability of alarm systems, reduce false dispatches and protect consumers from deceptive trade practices.

"Stu owns a local alarm company and never draws attention to himself, but is always there for FARA, his customers and his employees," Ship said in a statement. "One of the nominations the FARA Awards Committee received stated, 'if all alarm companies were as dedicated, ethical and professional as Stuart’s, we would all be looking for another line of work.' His company has consistently low false dispatch rates in the Washington-Metropolitan region."
