More Than Just Another Day at the Office, Tyco and ADT Showcase the Importance Of Teamwork and Diversity During Take Your Child to Work Day 2001

Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from ADT Security Services, Inc.

    BOCA RATON, Fla., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- When
 Tyco International Ltd., (NYSE:   TYC) and ADT Security Services, Inc. open for
 the business day at their offices in Boca Raton, FL, on Thursday, April 26,
 the meeting rooms will be filled with youthful energy as kids experience the
 world of corporate America.  Tyco and ADT are planning an interactive,
 educational and fun-filled day for children of employees for Take Your Child
 To Work Day 2001.
     According to Rueben Stokes, Corporate Director of Diversity for Tyco
 International (US) Inc., the day is designed to introduce the youngsters, ages
 9 to 15 to the business world while offering them a first-hand glimpse at a
 corporate setting.  Approximately 50 students are expected to participate in
 the day-long event.
     "The ability to work successfully with a variety of diverse people in a
 team environment is just as important in the classroom as it is in the
 boardroom.  We hope the experience will help these young people begin to
 develop some of the business skills they can use in their future careers,"
 said Stokes.
     Numerous activities are scheduled at Tyco/ADT during Take Your Child To
 Work Day 2001 with topics on diversity, teamwork, personal health and fitness
 and technology.  Some of the program highlights include:
 
     * Every child will get his/her own personal photo identification badge.
     * ADT President Mike Snyder will talk to kids about the electronic
 security services business and give them a few pointers on the road to
 success.
     * Kids will be asked to create their own company on paper and learn how to
 market their new product or service.
     * All the children will discover a new skill within themselves -- the
 ability to make music together.  Administrative, marketing, legal, information
 technology, human resources and finance professionals -- many of whom have
 never played a musical instrument -- will play percussion instruments (drums)
 alongside the kids.  This exercise will prove there is strength in numbers,
 and it will illustrate how every team member adds a unique skill and
 perspective to the group.
 
     The Tyco/ADT offices are located at One Town Center Road in Boca Raton,
 FL, just west of Military Trail.
