Emergency Response Services
Organizations often overlook emergency response services for multiple reasons. For instance, to avoid adjusting the budget for unnecessary services. Everyone who believes a catastrophe cannot happen or is unlikely to happen tend to change dramatically after that first incident.
Emergency response services requires a quick reaction time to mobilize a response to a site in a timely manner to effectively deal with a threat or emergency. A slow response could cause further injury and potentially death. If you see below we have our PMV Security emergency response model:

We know that sometimes incidents that occur are simply unavoidable. However, we can still react in a logical manner to minimize damage and loss of life. To accomplish this we must operate with standard response processes.
First, what do we know we can readily avoid with our current resources? We will work to develop solutions to prevent avoidable incidents with current experience, knowledge and other resources.
Some risk is unavoidable. We must mitigate the risk by developing a strategy to lessen its impact on the organization. The goal is to mitigate all potential risks. However, personnel must properly plan risk mitigation by prioritizing around the impact.
An organization must have a risk mitigation plan before any action. After that, preparation will be essential in the efficiency of employees actions. For instance, teams can use training programs and awareness campaigns to educate individuals on policies.
If a security personnel has never used a radio for emergency purposes they may waste precious time in the event a real incident occurs. Above all, preparation reduces waste and increases efficiency during emergencies.
An organization that has adequate preparation will be more efficient during their response. However, they must ensure all roles & responsibilities for action are clear. Communication upon detection is also another critical factor. For example, a security guard detects an emergency but does not notify the proper personnel.
After that, the leaders who are responsible must manage the incident as it happens. Backup personnel must also be ready to take control if the communication chain is broken. Leaders must prioritize tasks on importance.
This can be just as important as the response of the emergency itself. Organizations must take necessary steps to return to normal operations.
Personnel should conduct an after action to review the effectiveness of actions taken during the emergency. This will identify the performance of the actions and any previously unknown risk. After that, the teams will make adjustments to preparation to mitigate risk in future incidents.
What can we provide?
Emergency response services require tactical personnel. We provide a team called Quick Response Force (QRF) group is one of our highest trained units becoming trained in several areas:
- Crowd Control: They are trained in using riot gear, formations and movement patterns to deal with large numbers of people.
- Self-Defense Tactics: There are several types of martial arts that are combined together to deal with physical hand to hand movements for defense but also a strict escalation of force. Escalation of force provides our personnel with a roadmap on how and when to react with a certain level of force.
- Basic First Aid: How to treat basic injuries, dressing wounds on extremities, applying tourniquets to halt extreme bleeding, Heimlich maneuver for choking and CPR for heart failure.
We pull individuals with law enforcement & and correctional officers (working in prisons/jails) with seasoned experience. Our QRF trains regularly to maintain their PMV Certification as an active QRF member. This ensures they are able to demonstrate their knowledge and are proficient to respond to any emergency.
