The goal of discussing an active threat is to equip you with more options that work in ‘real’ situations. First and foremost, do not Panic but do React. Keep in mind that you need to do what is best for you – don’t make anyone do something that they don’t feel comfortable doing. When you Recognize a threat, assess the threat level, and immediately initiate a Response. In situations such as this Perception is Reality and your response can be anything. Evacuation, if possible, should always be your first option. If evacuation is not an option – Run. Hide. Fight. Always try to Alert someone and Communicate the threat effectively.
The first step in security prevention is having a well thought out plan in place. Before hiring a security agency for your business, be sure to know what your security goals are. A concise plan detailing what your challenges, strengths and weaknesses are can prove beneficial in communicating your concerns to a security provider and reducing risk before it happens. What are you looking to Deter? To Detect? And how are you wanting a security agency to Investigate and Respond to possible threats? Making sure you have the correct security partner for your business is an integral part of implementing this plan and making sure that you have the most (cost) efficient physical and technological security for your property.
