Koorsen Fire & Security brings experience, training, and a unique student-focused safety awareness program in their approach to fire and security in schools. Which means that schools get the security and fire protection they need from a source that goes even further than they’d expect.
“School corporations are looking for reliability and value,” said Aaron Hauser, sales manager for Koorsen Fire & Security’s Evansville, Indiana, office. “They want to know that we’re going to be available 24/7 and that we have the kind of liability insurance to keep them covered.
“We have all of that. We also offer a lot that our competition doesn’t.”
Schools require a range of services and a steady schedule of inspections to stay up to code and to keep students and staff safe. Koorsen ties all those services together so that budgeting, billing, and service become streamlined. More important, schools get one point of contact for anything they could need for everything from kitchen fire suppression to fire alarm systems to public address systems. They also get the security of knowing that Koorsen has them covered if anything goes wrong.
“Liability insurance plays a huge role in decision-making for schools,” Hauser said. “We have $10 million in liability insurance. It just keeps going up, and that’s a good thing. Most of our competition doesn’t have anything close to that.”
Hauser said that the Koorsen Advantage Plan, which extends equipment warranty protection from one to five years on labor, brings school corporations the extra peace of mind that comes from knowing any equipment malfunction is covered—anytime and without charge.
What schools get particularly excited about, however, is that Koorsen sponsors a program for students. The Kasey Program takes an entertaining approach to teaching students life-saving skills.
“The kids love it,” Hauser said, “and the school corporations love that they’re getting a program that helps children.”
