do you have business interruption insurance and are you covered now
    K&K is considering how we can challenge insurers for claims under business interruption policies for our clients who have to close down this week and going forward. Policies we have checked have exclusions for bacteria / virus, but this is force majure / national emergency. 
     If you have business interruption insurance and are forced to shut down, review your policy. If you have any questions [not complaining] contact us for assistance. Contact Jennifer Kirschenbaum,Esq at 516 747 6700 x 302 or

    RE: March 20 Newsletter.. more.. Should We Thank Sandy Springs
    The comments from Monitor Controls echoes Alarm Associations like SIAC. Comparing remote monitoring responsibility to auto manufactures is … Daaa. Self-serving, disconnected comments like this, from industry leadership, is destruction of the long standing “public-private-partnership”; and destroying the RMR market values for much of the industry. Over 10 million remote-monitored alarm customers are classified as “deterrent” type, ie signals from motion detection without remote-witness at the alarm site, such as audio or video,… also known as low priority nuisance alarms. Most customers are led to believe their monitoring source has special credibility with law enforcement, but are unaware that most police dispatchers throughout the US, have the authority to lower the priority to calls from private monitoring firms, as unknown nuisance calls (following decades of history of near 100% error/false). Sandy Springs, Fontana, Seattle are examples of full disclosure to citizens (and alarm industry) via legislation, which echoes the silent policy of most police departments. Some of the actions and communication of third-party monitoring firms and alarm associations are in direct conflict with their “dealers” and their “members”. When customers get full disclosure, they go away, aka attrition, or buy updated verification, or private response, and/or sue for rebates. 
    Ken, is it time to interpret and share the recent class-action for rebates?
