The Oklahoma Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (OKBFAA) is a state-wide, nonprofit organization comprised of LICENSED alarm dealers, distributors and manufacturers who have joined together for the benefit of the electronic security industry. Our industry has changed over the years and in addition to the burglar and fire alarm system professionals, we also represent locksmiths, closed circuit television, access control, nurse call, home automation, system integration and sprinkler installation companies.
OKBFAA is committed to maintaining the integrity as well as the promotion of licensed professionals in the electronic security industry. We strive to educate our members on the latest products and technology as well as codes and standards that directly affect our livelihood and the services we are hired to perform. We work closely with the Oklahoma Department of Labor in everything we do and with the work we perform for our customers.
We are proud members of the National Electronic Security Alliance (NESA)
The Oklahoma Burglar and Alarm Association is a member of the National Electronic Security Alliance. This group is made up of state associations for the sole benefit of the state. NESA was born in 2005 by six states that had previously belonged to another national association.
A company cannot belong to NESA. Companies belong to their local state association, which can belong to NESA.
The False Alarm Reduction Association is an association primarily of persons employed by government and public safety agencies in charge of, or working in, False Alarm Reduction Units. FARA also includes alarm companies and vendors interested in reducing the number of false alarms generated by electronic security systems.
The ASAA has been donating to FARA since 2010 to help support public safety agencies and to help promote their annual symposium.
