MCS Fire & Security Receives Safety Act Certification Mark from U.S Department of Homeland Security

Jul 09, 2012, 09:00 ET from MCS Fire & Security

SAN ANTONIO, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Homeland Security has awarded seal approval to MCS Fire & Security with the SAFETY Act Mark for use of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies, SAFETY Act Certified as of April 2012.


MCS Fire & Security's SAFETY Act protection extends to customers for the security system installation and integration services that we provide under our SAFETY Act Certification. The goal of the SAFETY Act is to encourage the development and deployment of new and innovative anti-terrorism products and services by providing liability protections. The SAFETY Act creates a system of risk and litigation management designed to ensure that the threat of liability in the event of an Act of Terrorism does not deter potential manufacturers or sellers of anti-terrorism technologies from developing, commercializing, and deploying technologies that could save lives. The SAFETY Act provides important legal liability protections for providers of anti-terrorism technologies.

MCS Fire & Security can now deliver another important added value to our customers - an added layer of liability protection to help customers in the event of an act of terrorism. In offering this benefit to MCS customers, we are taking advantage of the DHS program specifically designed to protect our country, citizens, and critical assets with advanced anti-terrorism technologies.

The SAFETY Act is an important federal law that encourages the creation and sale of anti-terror products and services to help protect the nation's citizens. It was enacted by Congress following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as part of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public Law 107- 296. Congress has stated that the purpose of the SAFETY Act is to "ensure that the threat of liability does not deter potential manufacturers or sellers of anti-terrorism technologies from developing and commercializing technologies that could save lives."

To achieve SAFETY Act certification, MCS Fire & Security had to demonstrate that its services can in some way deter, defend against, identify, respond to, or mitigate an act of terrorism. MCS Fire & Security passed a rigorous review by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to earn certification for our security system installation and integration services under the SAFETY Act.
