Briscoe Protective Systems Celebrates 35 Years of Offering Fire Safety Equipment and Security Products While Giving Back to the Community
This year, the company was named to Edwards Systems Technology’s 1 Million Dollar Club, making them one of the few EST fire equipment distributors to achieve the $1 million mark in sales. In addition, Security Distributing and Marketing magazine named Briscoe as one of the top 100 companies out of 7,000 national manufacturers and distributors.
Mr. Williams has over 35 years of experience in the life/safety industry. He is also a New York State-certified security and fire alarm course instructor. He was a volunteer firefighter in the Smithtown Fire Department and also served in the U.S. Army.
Briscoe has played a vital role in educating and assisting its surrounding communities. Each year, Briscoe gives out the Bert Briscoe Memorial Scholarship. During Christmastime, Briscoe donates toys to the children at Stony Brook University Hospital’s Burn Unit. In addition, Briscoe provides free educational seminars covering the care and handling of the fire alarm systems common to these companies’ sites. They thoroughly go over fire safety procedures to ensure the safety of every company in the community. So far, more than 800 people have taken part in these seminars.
“We take the beliefs that Bert passed on to us very seriously. We believe it is our duty to help educate and assist others in reaching their full potential so that one day they can do the same for others,” Mr. Williams says. “Our profound history shows that our primary goal has always been to protect and serve others so that they can go about their lives in a safe and positive way. That’s what Briscoe stands for.”
