By establishing mutually beneficial relationships with law enforcement agencies and fire safety personnel, hosting educational forums, and providing members with timely industry updates, the SAAA continues with its mission to promote growth and professionalism within our industry.

Denelect Alarm

“I wanted to learn about the industry and I heard from a police department friend that there was a bay area alarm association in Oakland so I went to a meeting. From there I learned of the WBFAA, now the CAA.”

Chuck Petruska

Advanced Alarm

"I have been able to experience first-hand the benefits of the association and encourage any alarm company to join or attend any CAA event. They are iconic to our industry and they grow and offer members high opportunities for networking and gaining knowledge in our industry.”

Dawn Smith

Total Monitoring Services

“While working for King Central, I became their Regional Account Manager. I wanted to be aware of what was going on in the industry so I began attending the Sacramento Area Alarm Association meetings. I did not expect the true friendships I have made over the years through the different Associations. I carry some of the people I’ve met through the years very close to my heart.”
