Preventia Security Expands East With Chattanooga Acquisition

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

Preventia Security, a security provider for homes and businesses, announces their expansion into East Tennessee with the opening of a branch in Chattanooga.

"Preventia has marked yet another milestone in their explosive growth over the past few years, from a single office with 20 employees in 2017 to four offices with over 80 employees in 2021," officials said.

On July 1st, Preventia officially acquired Action Alarms of Chattanooga, which is based in Fort
Oglethorpe, and has served Chattanooga and surrounding areas for over 30 years with alarm installation and monitoring services. "Their reputation as a respectable family-owned business will continue to drive their sense of customer-focused professionalism as ownership changes hands to another local businessman," officials said. 

Aaron Whitaker founded Preventia 10 years ago in Columbia, Tennessee, with the goal of building an integrity-based company that could provide top-tier service while maintaining the reliable, personable feel of a hometown business.

“Our purpose at Preventia is to help people sleep at night and to get the most out of their day,”
says Mr. Whitaker. “Don & Linda Morgan have done a wonderful job serving the same purpose and
we are excited to continue in their footsteps."

Preventia serves both the residential and commercial sectors with alarm, access control, video
surveillance, fire detection and smart home systems. To achieve their core purpose to the
fullest, they’ve set a long-term goal to shield 75,000 homes and businesses across the
Southeast. In particular, Mr. Whitaker has long had his sights on Chattanooga, "where the charm of
a historic small city meets the cultural and technological advances of a rapidly-growing
metropolis."

“Chattanooga has been on our wish list for several years because of requests from current
customers to help serve them there. Plus, we were attracted to the type of people and the
community there. This was the perfect opportunity to make our wish a reality.”

"Existing customers in the Chattanooga area will continue to see the same friendly faces on
their doorsteps and talk to the same service professionals on the phone - they’ll just be
wearing Preventia’s signature red, black and gray colors," officials said.

The new office joins three other branches located in Columbia (home base), Lafayette and Albany, Ga.
