April 30, 2019
Non-profit group aims to connect and provide education to the security and life safety community

Hillsborough, NJ (April 2, 2019) – Global Life Safety Alliance (GLSA) a 501c3 non-for-profit, today announced their formation with a Mission of continuing conversations with both public and private stakeholders while addressing the current and emerging life safety needs and practices throughout our changing global environments. This new alliance is designed to raise the level of communication, knowledge and expertise, defining best practices to manage our growing risks and concerns. 

We strive to connect, educate and progress the global life safety & security industry under one united umbrella of professionals spanning every aspect of the industry. Before this Alliance there  was no singular connection point for all professionals to learn about each other expertise and expand their services offered, in today’s changing world. 

Plans to develop the Alliance began in Alexandria VA, United States by a group of industry professionals with a desire to provide a global platform to foster quick, simple and effective means of communication, touching all aspects of the Life Safety Industry from the installers and integrators, to our first responders, our governmental agencies, to the testing Inspection & certification labs, the product manufacturers, and on and on.

“The Launch of Global Life Safety Alliance (GLSA) is an important step towards realizing a connected global network of experts focused on supporting every aspect of Life Safety. We are excited to have global subject matter experts join our Alliance and assist us with the development of relevant industry content”,” said Thomas F. Connaughton, CEO.

“By providing a platform to Connect, Educate & Progress such professional we will continue to further promote global commerce and best practices under a single Alliance Umbrella” said Julio McCrae, President. Industry 4.0 will continue to impact our collective community in ways we could never have imagined, providing both opportunity and challenges when seeking to protect humans and property from the ever evolving physical and cyber threats that we face as a collective society.
