Welcome

The Texas Burglar and Fire Alarm Association (TBFAA) is the statewide trade association for the Texas Alarm Industry.

Member companies install, integrate and monitor intrusion and fire detection, video surveillance, electronic access control systems and other electronic and automation systems.
TBFAA provides training, advocacy, information, advice, tools, and services to allow members to improve and enhance the services they offer to the citizens of Texas.
TBFAA works with state and local agencies to promote false alarm reduction, ensure effective licensing, conduct affordable training, comply with standards and provide consumer education. 

TBFAA's capabilities are enhanced with our alliances with other state associations as a member of the National Electronic Security Alliance (NESA) and by our affiliations with several local Texas associations.
