Guest Post: Larry King Attends CONNECT 2013

Larry King by Larry King | 11.08.2013

For over 15 years now, I’ve been proud to present the annual Life Safety Award, which recognizes courageous individuals who go above and beyond to save lives. This year’s recipient, Arturo Ramirez Jr., showed extreme bravery, going well beyond his responsibilities as a Sheriff’s Deputy. During a raging house fire, he risked his own life to rescue a woman and four children who were trapped inside their home. His story is a great testament to what a single person can accomplish when faced with extremely challenging circumstances.

It is great that this year’s event brought together the First Alert Professional network and CSS and HIS dealers for Honeywell Security’s CONNECT 2013. My involvement was a little different this time around. Since the event was in Los Angeles, I was able to be a part of the official award presentation at the JW Marriott.

Please watch the video below for an account of Arturo’s bravery.

In addition to honoring Arturo, I want to personally recognize the CONNECT attendees. Coming from all over the United States, Canada and Latin America, these security companies are doing such outstanding work to protect the families and businesses in their communities.

I’ve enjoyed telling these stories over the past 15 years. Thanks to all of you in the security industry for doing the work you do to keep us safe.
