 Currently celebrating its 43rd anniversary, National Recall Alert Center, a non-profit, federally-approved 501(c)3 organization, is the nation’s premier recall warning alert service. Begun when its founder was in medical school in 1973, National Recall Alert Center has never missed an active defective product recall and is the major recall alerting service for the majority of hospitals and medical facilities throughout the USA. With offices in both Washington, D.C and New Jersey, National Recall Alert Center’s sole focus is on recalls and works in consortium with the FDA and over 7,500 manufacturers and over 3,000 end users around the world 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

 What is so perfect about this partnership is the future of what this could bring for both organizations.  By offering HON to clients, National Recall Alert will be strengthening the trust and relationship with clients and offering yet another added benefit to becoming a part of this well respected organization.  In addition to the great recall benefits that clients receive, a Home Owners Network membership will provide clients with Total Home Support including 24/7 home recall alerts for Free with their HON Membership.  Total home support will also provide members with features such as expert home advice, ability to connect with local quality and background checked contractors, deals and discounts for home related products and services, an emergency hotline, and much more.  

 Both organizations are very excited for kick off in 2016.  This will be a seamless roll out and most importantly a treasured new relationship with yet another way to provide outstanding service to home owners across the nation.
