NORTH CANTON, Ohio (5/13/10)--Credit unions that deploy Diebold’s ATMs can take advantage of the company’s fire detection solutions and services. Diebold introduced its Fire Detections Solutions and Services Wednesday, which include fire detection hardware, software, monitoring and services. “We believe fire is a critical element of a holistic approach to security,” said Bradley J. Stephenson, Diebold vice president of security solutions. “Our customer base has been encouraging us to introduce these solutions and services. “If you protect a building from being robbed, but you don’t protect it from being burned down, you’re missing a big piece,” he added. The cornerstones of Diebold’s fire protection solutions are specialized equipment and trained specialists who will deliver advanced monitoring and response technology. Diebold’s monitoring centers are Five-Diamond-certified by the Central Station Alarm Association and UL- and UL-C-certified by Underwriters Laboratories, Diebold said.
