The L. W. Bills Company of Georgetown, Massachusetts, a manufacturer
of municipal, industrial and residential alarm systems since 1925, was the region’s
first new SHARP site in FY2007, becoming a full-fledged member in March 2007.
Dan Dinwiddie, L. W. Bills General Manager, said that his company is
“very safety-minded,” as “half of our staff are either retired or current firefighters,
including chiefs, deputy chiefs and lieutenants.” In order to learn more
about SHARP, Dinwiddie attended last year’s SHARP luncheon in Portsmouth,
Dinwiddie also noted that company president, Harold Roeder, is impressed with the high standards SHARP sites have to meet in order to qualify for participation.
According to Dinwiddie, “Being part of SHARP makes our company feel like we are part of the best.
The entire staff is extremely proud of this achievement.”
