Briscoe specializes in approved Fire Alarm Systems and Integrated Security Solutions.  We provide Service, Inspections, Design, Engineering, Central Station Monitoring Services, Access Control, CCTV, and Security Systems for Commercial Industrial and Institutional Customers in New York City's Five Boroughs, Long Island and Westchester.

Significant Accomplishment

The cornerstone of our Corporate Responsibility comes from Bert Briscoe's motto "People Helping People Make a Difference."  Briscoe honors this philosophy in a number of ways giving back to our community and our customers, many of which are Non Profits. Annual scholarship award recipients include the local Fire Districts' family members and the Bert Briscoe monetary award, donated annually to a Non Profit customer employee. We provide free FDNY S95 certification classes to our customers and founded the Just One Life Program.  This unique program partners Briscoe with Fire Districts to hand out combination Smoke/CO detectors.  It takes fire safety to the next level by ensuring the devices are installed in the selected family's homes by Briscoe staff volunteers.

February Tip - Crediting Off Job Invoices

Invoices created within a job must be credited off within the job.  This should not be done from the customer record.  The job keeps track of what needs to be billed based on accounting performed within the job.  When an invoice is credited off outside of the job, the job does not automatically open up the items to be re-billed again.  When the invoice is credited off within the job, the job will immediately enable the items to be billed again.
