The text below is the same as in the video. It's your choice on whether you want to watch the video or just read this description.
When I joined the fire alarm community in 2008 at the age of 10, I never imagined myself having an established YouTube channel with hundreds of videos and the thousands of subscribers that I do now. I never saw myself amassing a collection of several hundred devices and building online services that scores of industry professionals use on a daily basis. An interest in fire alarms has helped me develop my skill-sets in other areas such as technology and business. I'd like to thank all of the members of this community who have watched my videos, patronized my businesses, and became friends.
Starting next week, I have accepted a full-time two year mission call for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I will be serving this mission in Málaga, Spain from May 2016 through May 2018. During the duration of this mission, I will not be able to be an active member of this community. As such, I must resign from my moderator position on The Fire Panel forum. I look forwards to being a participant again upon my return.
For my YouTube channel, I have created six new videos that will be automatically released over the next two years. Five New system tests will be released on June 20 and December 20 of 2016, 2017, and 2018. One "bonus" video, which is really just a continuation of an already published video, will be uploaded on a random day during my absence.
As for my other online services, here is where they stand:
* FireAlarmResources.com, the internet’s largest provider of free fire alarm system documentation, will stay online. However, no new content will be added to the website. If you are looking for a particular manual, I suggest asking on the Fire Alarms Online for NICET Facebook page.
* FireAlarmStore.com will suspend all operations during this time. For any order inquires, please message us through our eBay account, ddjcjj.
* Our URL shortener, bitty, will stay online. I will be crossing my fingers that the spam stays to a minimum.
* All of our other services, such as website design and management, will be suspended. We have worked with our clients to resolve any issues created by my absence
Upon my return in May 2018, I plan on restarting and revamping all of those services and rejoining the fire alarm community as an active member once more.

Thank you all again, and I hope that you enjoy the new content coming your way over the next two years.
