What is Emergency Security Guard Services and who needs it and how does it work? We will discuss these questions and explain how IronMike Solutions works with clients to provide Emergency Security Guard Services on a worldwide basis.
Let us begin with what is Emergency Security Guard Services? Emergency Security Guard Services is much like the words imply. It is Security Guard Services that are needed in an emergency. The emergency can be for many reasons but some of the most common are from Natural Disaster and Civil Disturbance.
When an Emergency occurs time is of the essence and trained Security Guards can be in short supply from most Security Guard companies due to their staff already being assigned to clients under normal conditions and that they are not trained for such situations. This creates a serious gap in protection for many business owners, corporate management and government officials. The risk for people and property goes up immediately during times like this raising the responsibility of a business owner or the management of a company or even government officials to protect people and property.
This responsibility is known as “Duty of Care” in legal circles. Business Owners, Executives, Board Members and Government officials in some cases can be held responsible for the lack of a response in an Emergency such as a Natural Disaster, Civil Disturbance or even a War Zone.
So to be able to provide Emergency Security Guard Services a company must be organized in a manner to be able to provide such services to its clients within a very short period of time. Normally within 24-48 hours of a request from a client. The staff of a security guard company that provides Emergency Security Guard Services must be trained to respond to a request, be of a higher quality than the average Security Guard and very well trained in a variety of skills, including security, first aid, crowd control, evacuations, extractions and delivery of humanitarian aid. They may also be operating in difficult environments where suitable accommodations for them may not be available for an extended periods of time and therefore must be able to operate for extended hours in difficult environments.
A Disaster or Emergency can last for a few days or even months which requires the Emergency Security Guard Services provided to the client be able to stay on site for an extended period time and have the staff in reserve to relieve exhausted staff and resupply if necessary.
Often times the Emergency Security Guard Services may need to extract people from a dangerous situation, such as floods, tornados, hurricanes, riots and even war zones.
Well the short answer is almost everyone at some point in their lives may need some aspect of Emergency Security Guard Services. However mostly it is business owners, management of corporations, governments and non-government organizations “NGOs”.
These are the people that have responsibility for people and property in an emergency situation such as described above. Some will have been assigned this responsibility and others will suddenly find themselves in a desperate situation with little warning or preparation. They can wake up one day and learn that one of their business locations is under threat of a civil disturbance, natural disaster or if they operate in some foreign countries, even war. Regardless of how they find themselves in a disaster they still have “Duty of Care” responsibilities to their organizations and the people that it employees. So thinking ahead and planning for a disaster should be something that is treated in a serious manner.
