Message from the SBC Board President: An Opportunity to Serve and to Grow  

Eric Toenjes

Posted on June 23, 2021

We are all called to contribute in a variety of ways.  It is important to contribute to the success of our employers and of course our families, but also to the general welfare of society.  With the Safer Buildings Coalition there are many opportunities to serve, but also many rewards for doing so.  

As I look back at my personal journey with SBC, I first became involved as a member of the Advancement Work Group where I started to gain an understanding of how the organization functions and the goals being pursued.  From there I stepped up to be co-chair and eventually chaired the Advancement Work Group.  While gaining more exposure with the executive team and a desire to influence the goals, initiatives and growth of the coalition, those roles prepared me for my eventual run for Vice-President of the Board of Directors, and I now serve as President of the Board.

Executive Director – Safer Buildings Coalition

Posted on June 23, 2021

While preparing for some Safer Buildings Coalition (SBC) activities and annual meeting to be held at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) in Las Vegas, NV, I began to think about the relationship between Vegas and the new NICET In-Building Public Safety Communications Certification Program we have been working on for a whileNow I am sure you are thinking, what in the world does an event in Las Vegas and a certification program for those designing, installing, and maintaining In-Building Emergency Responder Communication Enhancement Systems (ERCES) have in common. Well, if you let your mind take a little journey with me, more than you think. To help get the point across about the importance of obtaining a professional certification in the field of in-building communications let us look at popular television show set in Las Vegas titled Pawn Stars.

The Telecommunications Industry is Taking a Stand Against Human Trafficking, Here’s How  

TATE Initiative

Posted on June 23, 2021

Telecommunications Against Trafficking and Exploitation (TATE) was established in 2020 in response to a need for more eyes and ears trained to recognize the signs of human trafficking in our communities.

Human trafficking is very real, and what many do not know is that it occurs right here within the United States.
