What Our Clients Are Saying:

“My wife and I decided to upgrade our 30 year old security system. Our monitoring service and call center was in the mid west. We were looking for local service and on the recommendation of friends decided on First Response. Now, a month into that relationship, I can say it has taken a few installation visits, but First Response has listened and provided the security upgrade we were aiming for. The installation personnel that came to our house was very experienced. We feel we are in good hands.”

“We’ve worked with First Response for many years, now, and they have always done a great job for us! Nice people to talk with, very reasonable rates, and now they can take care of our fire extinguishers, too! We highly recommend these folks.”

We have used First Response for the last 6+ years. They are always professional and timely. When it comes to security of my business they’re the only ones I will ever use.”

“First Response embodies all the positive attributes I was looking for in a security company and had not found in previous providers. At each stage the First Response team has been professional, knowledgeable, prompt and genuinely invested in making their services work for the customer. I feel much more secure with First Response.”
