About Us

Superior Alarm was founded by Dan and Becky Culmer. They both grew up on the Western Slope of Colorado and proudly serve the Montrose, Gunnison and Telluride areas.

“We have engineers and designers that have Level I – III certification by the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET). This allows Superior Alarm the freedom to be able to envision and engineer large projects from the beginning design and blueprint stages to their full implementation.

We have proven experience having engineered and installed systems in hospitals, hotels, governmental facilities, restaurants and in various types of residential construction. All our systems are designed to meet all federal, state and local fire codes.

Thank you for visiting our website and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have.”
