Washington Alarm, Inc. was founded in 1943 by Jack Woodman and originally incorporated as Washington Equipment Company. For the first several years the company was primarily engaged in the sale and annual servicing of portable fire extinguishers.
In the late 1950′s the company recognized an emerging opportunity in the alarm industry. In 1960 we installed our first security system. An answering service was utilized to monitor these early rudimentary “Central” alarms. Jack’s son, John, joined the company in 1965 and was instrumental in growing the business by expanding the offerings to include fire alarm systems.
In 1974 we established our UL Listed Central Station, with the Highline School District as our first major account. John purchased the company in 1982 when his father retired. That same year we moved to our current location on South Jackson Street in Seattle.
The company is still family owned and operated, with John’s daughter, Shannon, managing the Sales and Installation departments. We remain committed to hiring and training the best employees available, and attempt to promote from within whenever possible. We continue to stress quality, service, and integrity and have one of the highest customer retention rates in the industry.
