ROSWELL, Georgia – March 2, 2012 – U.S. Security Associates Inc. (USA), a leading national provider of uniformed contract security services, recently attended Training Magazine's Top 125 Award Gala to receive its recognition as a top training company for the sixth year in a row.
One of the factors in winning this prestigious award is the on-going education, training, and field implementation of our employee's learned skills in real life situations. Proving this is Rebecca Strobl, an employee at USA, who recently won the Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services (CCFES) Volunteer Firefighter of the Year Award.
"I have been working for U.S. Security Associates since May 2003 and am very thankful to work for a company that allows its employees schedule flexibility to give back to their community," said Strobl. "The Fire Chief of CCFES (Chief Tim Prather) presented this very special award to me. He told me that one of the reasons I was selected was because of my commitment to keep my training levels / certifications current."
Strobl also participated in the Atlanta 2011 9/11 Memorial Stair climb which was started by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, which honors the Emergency Services personnel that fell during 9/11. "I am looking forward to my partnership continuing between U.S. Security Associates and CCFES so I can give back to the community while trying to be the best for my co-workers and my neighbors," said Strobl.
"We are very proud of our all our employees, especially for their dedication and commitment to continuous learning and improvement. The training programs we create reinforce our core values - Integrity, Safety Quality and Pride. It is always great to receive this type of positive feedback that we are doing the right things," said Chuck Schneider, President & CEO of U.S. Security Associates.
Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. Our mission is to honor and remember America's fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives. Each October, the Foundation sponsors the official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. Thousands attend the weekend activities held at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The Weekend features special programs for survivors and coworkers along with moving public ceremonies. For more information please visit www.firehero.org
