ABCO Fire Protection, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio has received the honor of being named an ANSUL Double Diamond Alliance Partner. This level of distinction is a testament to the hard work put forth by the organization over the past year.
The Diamond Alliance partnership is based on achieving measureable goals established by Tyco. At this time, less than 20% of ANSUL distributors have Diamond Alliance Partner distinction. Companies that achieve Diamond Alliance status must earn that partnership each year through sales performance. Currently, there are three levels of Diamond Alliance Partners for a distributor to achieve – Single, Double and Triple.
“We are very proud of our distributors and being able to honor those that stand above the rest is something we are happy to do,” said Suzanne Rowland, Vice President & General Manager Americas, Tyco Fire Protection Products. Recipients of the ANSUL Diamond Alliance Partner Program honor can receive a variety of perks such as publicity, product discounts, no-charge training and more.

Remember the power outages across Ohio this past summer? Some people waited 12 days before their power could be reinstated. What started as a summer storm, took Mother Nature only a very short time to wreak havoc across Ohio, costing homeowners, insurance companies, businesses and government agencies billions of dollars in losses.
In Ohio, storms and other forces (watch out- Isaac is coming this weekend) occur in all seasons, so being prepared can really pay off.
Are you prepared?
Creating a checklist of things you would not normally think of is a great additional step to being prepared. Things like preparing for emergencies with pets, medical needs, deciding whether to evacuate or shelter in place, and communications plans are a few things to consider.
