No matter how near or far, we are family, and we all are committed to “do whatever it takes, every customer, every time.”

But we aren’t just a community in and of ourselves – each branch believes in becoming a part of its local community as well.

Evansville Pride

To the Evansville team, working at Koorsen is way more than just another job. They take a great deal of pride in their work, and for more than one reason:

  • Protecting life and property: to the members of the Evansville branch, working in the fire and security industry means a lot more than holding a job.

As branch manager, David Ligon, stated it, it means “protecting life and property,” and that is something every single team member takes pride in. It fuels their dedication to “work hard to get answers for customers, accommodate customer needs, and [be] available after-hours when needed.”

Team members know that what they do makes a difference for their customers and therefore their community, and that satisfaction inspires them to excellence.

  • Being a community: another point of prideand a defining feature, according to the Evansville team, is a genuine sense of community.

“The great people around us at our branch and at corporate,” states Mr. Ligon, is one of the things he and the team love most about their jobs. The work culture fostered at Evansville has created an internal community, “the sense of comradery, the friendships and the trust as co-workers.”

  • Being a part of the community: but more than just successfully creating a fantastic internal community, the Evansville branch is particularly proud of being an active part of their geographic community.


Koorsen, Evansville – True Community Member

Among their list of greatest accomplishments of the year, and of defining features they are most proud of, community service takes a high place.

In 2017 alone, the Evansville team served seven separate charities, contributing time, finances, equipment, and other efforts.

One of the most memorable, reports the team, was the opportunity to help a special needs school located in Riverview. After the school was vandalized, it was unable to reopen its doors to its students.

So, the Koorsen Evansville team took up the challenge, donating time and materials as a number of members headed out to the school to help repaint and install a 4-camera security system they donated.

Among the other most memorable opportunities was their participation in “Adopt a Family” this past Christmas. The team adopted a family of four – a single mom with three children. Branch members came together to provide toys, clothes, gift cards, bedding, dishes, toiletries, and more.

“Knowing we were helping this mother provide a special experience for her young children,” the branch reported, “was very rewarding.”

The Evansville team participated in a host of other fund raisers, service opportunities and yearly parades. Even still, one of their goals for the next 5 years is to increase their community outreach and involvement.
