January 23, 2023  By  SP&T Staff

The Foundation for Advancing Security Talent (FAST), an organization created by the Electronic Security Association (ESA) and the Security Industry Association (SIA), is celebrating Jan. 23 as National Security Technician Day.

The day was created to promote careers in the physical security technology industry and acknowledge the hard work and skills that security technicians bring to the job.

“At FAST, we seek to drive awareness of the incredible employment opportunities in the electronic security and safety industry, and the role of the security technician is one of the most incredible opportunities to enter the security industry and build a successful and rewarding career,” said Paul Hevesy, chair of the board of directors for FAST, in a statement. “On Jan. 23, we’re celebrating the contributions of all those who serve as security technicians, and we encourage all industry companies to join us in this celebration.”

“Technicians are consistently identified as our Most Valuable Players,” added John Loud, president of LOUD Security and chairman of ESA. “I am so grateful they will be receiving recognition on this inaugural ‘National Security Technician Day. This is the first in what I hope will be a series of days where we as an industry can celebrate our teams together.”
