Active Assailant Events are becoming more and more common in today’s America and the wider world. It is crucial that organizations are prepared to prevent and respond to such attacks in a way that minimizes damage and preserves life; the old adage “It won’t happen to us” no longer applies to any business. Lack of preparation is no longer legally defensible. While total immunity is an impossibility, preparedness in this area is truly lifesaving.
Our Active Assailant Preparedness service is a comprehensive overview of the current outlook on active assailant attacks in the United States and how they can affect your daily operations. Our team of security experts develops a customized response plan that includes the latest survival techniques and avoidance strategies for clients, personnel, and patrons within our customers’ operating environments. We serve at the behest of our client’s needs, and help them create an Active Assailant Response Plan, designed specifically to prepare people for violent intrusion attempts at their respective sites.
