What is alarm response and how can it help your business?

The problem with many businesses is that they are often left empty overnight. Most of the work is done during the day. This means that during the day there are staff and people around who can deal with issues but once the business is closed, and unless you have night security guards, the premises are left empty.

Having night security guards is a great option in securing your premises. They are professionally trained security personnel who are skilled in identifying problems and dealing with them efficiently and effectively. The problem arises when you don’t have such measures in place.

So what is alarm response and how can this help in securing your business and potentially saving you from incurring losses?

Simply put, your business premises are vulnerable when it unattended and empty. It is at risk of burglary and vandalism. Gone are the days when Police would respond rapidly to a burglar alarm – they simply don’t have those sorts of resources available anymore. Now it is down to the business owners themselves to put measures in place to help keep their premises and assets safe and secure.

Loses are not incurred just through burglary, vandalism and arson but thousands are lost in leaks, fires and industrial espionage. If your building were to have a burst pipe or a leak then it may take until someone comes to the premises many hours later to discover it – by which time, your business may have suffered an enormous amount of losses. You can imagine that most businesses have expensive assets on their premises that water from a leaking pipe could cause a considerable amount of damage.

The same would apply in the event of a fire. If a fire is to occur, thousands can be lost in fire damage. With hundreds of false fire alarms activating every night, it is impossible for the emergency fire services to respond to each and every one. The fire services will require verification of an actual fire before valuable resources are allocated to investigate the alarm activation. False alarms cost the fire emergency services thousands and distract them from real emergencies.

This is where a professional alarm response service can really be effective. If your premises has an alarm activated, whether it be something life threatening like a fire or burglary, or whether you have temperature sensitive products that require a certain temperature they cannot rise above or fall below, the rapid alarm response unit will respond immediately. They will investigate the activation and investigate the problem. And after they have located the issue they will take the appropriate actions that could save you a lot of time, money and hassle.

Top 3 Security Tips for an event

Whether you are a party or any other type of event organiser, there are some key security protocols that you should consider to ensure that your event runs smoothly and safely.

Risk assessment

One of the first things to consider when organising an event is to carry out a detailed inspection of the venue or area that the event will be held. This will help conduct a risk assessment.

Risk assessments help to identify possible issues and vulnerabilities. This will mean that you will get a better understanding of what security protocols you will require to keep your event safe and secure.

Security guards/Door supervisors

Events, where there will be a lot of people, can often mean that you need a measure of crowd control and entry management.

Professional Security staff are trained to ensure only authorised persons are permitted entrance into the event. This will reduce the risk of trouble being caused at the event.

SIA trained Security staff are also skilled in positioning themselves to cover vulnerable areas.   

Security patrols

Security staff are rehearsed in carrying out red routed and random patrols. This will include checking vulnerable areas, low light and high-risk areas. The patrols will include high-risk areas such as toilets and store rooms.

The patrols will include security identifying additional risks such as fire and leaks. Thus creating an overall safer environment.

Security staff make events much safer by offering:

  • A visual security presence
  • Access control
  • Searches (if required)
  • Wrist bands (if required)
  • Patrols
  • Red routes

Professional security guards are SIA approved, fire Marshall and First Aid trained.
