Last Friday, I was honored to pick up the public service award given to New Jersey 101.5 from the NJESA at Bally’s in Atlantic City.

The NJESA is a non-profit Association that supports Fire & Security alarm dealers in New Jersey.  They are also a chapter of the National Electronic Security Association and have been recently named the chapter of the year.

Every year our Association holds an annual Symposium in Atlantic City.  During this event they provide training to alarm dealers, a trade show and an award luncheon. During the luncheon awards are given to individuals or companies, police officers or fireman, elected officials or anyone who has made an impact in our industry or has made an impact in New Jersey.

This year New Jersey 101.5 was honored with the “Public Service Award”.  “NJ 101.5 has provided public service to the people of New Jersey when it counts.  From Hurricane Sandy coverage, to the morning commute, to our special 'Ask the Governor' show or whatever New Jersey want to hear about,  NJ 101.5 is there for New Jersey.” Like I said in the acceptance speech, "We at New Jersey 101.5 keep New Jersey informed. The NJESA keeps us protected.”
