House Fire Threatens Home
USAA Member, Dr. Jim Zimmerman was sound asleep when he was abruptly awaken by the blaring of his ADT alarm system. After smelling smoke, he realized his house was on fire.“ I was confused. I didn’t know where the fire was,” Zimmerman explained.
Just seconds before, over 2,500 miles away, a trained ADT emergency dispatcher had already contacted the local fire department. “I know that stuff can be replaced, but lives cannot. I’m just thankful that ADT was there to get the mechanism of action going behind the scenes while I was walking around the house trying to figure it out,” said Zimmerman. Thanks to the fast response of the ADT monitoring system and the first responders, Dr. Zimmerman’s home and his life were saved.
