Preventia Security Expands East with Chattanooga Acquisition


Preventia Security, Tennessee’s premier security provider for homes and businesses, is thrilled to announce their expansion into East Tennessee with the opening of a new 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.

On July 1st, Preventia officially acquired Action Alarms of Chattanooga, which is based in Fort Oglethorpe, GA and has proudly 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. 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 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, 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! The new office joins three other
branches, located in Columbia (home base), Lafayette, TN, and Albany, GA. To learn more
