Kings III Joins Its BOMA International Cornerstone Partners to Support Volunteers of America
Kings III doubles down on BOMA Cornerstone Partner efforts with an additional donation to Volunteers of America at national conference.
(Salt Lake City, UT – June 25, 2019) Kings III Emergency Communications, a leading provider of emergency phone services focused on reducing building risk and liability, has joined forces with BOMA’s other top supporters to take on a worthy cause directly impacting the commercial real estate industry: combating homelessness.
During its annual Conference & Expo, BOMA International offers extensive educational programming and opportunities for professional development. At this year’s event, Cornerstone Partners donated money to purchase items for toiletry kits. Conference participants were encouraged to take time on the Expo floor to help assemble the kits which were then donated to Volunteers of America.
In addition to the donation for supplies, Kings III with help from their booth visitors and focus group participants also gave a $2,500 cash contribution. The kits and these funds will be used to support the new Geraldine E King Women’s Resource Center. A collaborative effort between Volunteers of America, Road House and Shelter The Homeless, the center will provide emergency shelter to homeless women in and around Salt Lake City. Beyond providing safe emergency shelter, this facility will also provide basic needs such as meals, clothing, hygiene items, a place for female clients to wash clothes and shower, as well as a welcoming environment for service animals.
All funds donated were eligible for a match by the Larry H & Gail Miller Family Foundation. The Miller family has promised to match all contributions to www.home4change.org up to $10 million.

Elevator Communications and Data Connection Requirements: Properly Evaluating Security Risk, Reliability and Encumbrances
There’s a lot to consider when thinking about the new elevator emergency communication code requirements. Deciding to use your own network creates a long checklist and more work for you. Granting a third party vendor access to your network is an option but has risks. Here are a few things to consider when making your decision.
As part of Building Safety Month, we’re taking a look at some fundamental property crime statistics that all property managers should know, adding in some of our own crime prevention and crime response tips.
We have found as an emergency pool phone provider that there are multifamily communities unaware that their current pool phone service is actually using a deactivated cell phone. Depending on the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ), this often does not pass inspection for several reasons. This puts both property managers and their tenants at risk. Learn why.
Kings III equipment has been approved for the use of FirstNet, built by AT&T, which is a long-term evolution (LTE) network that gives first priority to first responders and other public safety personnel. Learn more here.
After a rigorous review process, Kings III’s emergency phone host control panel, the M90, is now FirstNet Ready™ and ready for use on FirstNet®, a public safety network. Learn items of note.
