McLean, VA, Feb. 2, 2023 — The Monitoring Association (TMA) seeks professionals from the security industry; public safety; emergency communications; schools; systems manufacturers; and others from large public/private management to participate in the development of its newly proposed ANSI standard – Monitoring Center Notification of Active Threat Detection (TMA-ATN-01). As monitoring centers are increasingly monitoring shot detection, weapons detection, and manual lockdown notification systems, as well as other innovative threat technologies today, a standardized workflow is needed to assure timely and accurate notification various entities. This standard will develop an efficient means for the monitoring center to provide responding authorities with information that assists with an efficient and safe response. Go to TMA’s website at https://tma.us/tma-atn-01-participation-form/ to complete an interest form. Learn more about this and other TMA standards activities at https://tma.us/standards/.
Membership in TMA is not required to participate as a committee member. Additionally, anyone may offer comments on the draft standard without being a committee member or a TMA member. ANSI and TMA procedures require equal consideration of all comments.
TMA leadership will determine the number of committee members with consideration to the number of applications received, balanced with the need to assure the group can work effectively and efficiently.
The committee will be asked to complete their initial draft of the standard within 120 days of the first committee meeting. Following completion of the draft document, committee participation for an additional three to a six-month period will be required during the public review and comment phase, and for completion of the final draft.
Please complete a short, online form if you are interested in being considered for membership on the TMA-ATN-01 committee.
