Finding the right Event Security Companies
Whether you’re planning a small gathering or a large-scale event, finding the right event security companies should be a top priority in any crowd situation. While there are plenty of remote monitoring solutions available, having trained security present at your event can de-escalate critical situations before they even happen. That’s why it’s important to hire people you can trust so you and your guests can simply enjoy the occasion.
1. Consider your needs
Before you seek out the right security solutions for you, consider the requirements for your event. Is it a small company gathering or are you catering to a large crowd? Will the event happen indoors or outside? How safe is the area you’re in? Will you need any specialist protection like detection dogs? Are there VIPs who will need close protection? Maybe your event requires national or international travel? The company would need to be aware of international security laws and manage the appropriate transport, whether you’re travelling by land, sea or air.
Having a detailed list of your requirements will help you narrow down the right event security company and ensure they provide appropriate protection to make your event as safe as possible.
2. Pay attention to testimonials
No matter how well event security companies sell themselves to you, few things will give you better insight than their client testimonials and experience. Make sure the security company you choose has extensive experience and necessary equipment for your type of event. You can find detailed information on the success of their previous events, how well they’ve managed to de-escalate potential dangers and the technology they use. Researching their clientele, industry reputation and customer reviews will provide reassurance that you’re making the right choice for you and your guests.
3. Choose event security companies with the right qualifications
At Herongrange, we take security regulations very seriously and always ensure our staff are aware of any changes in regulation and have up-to-date qualifications to do their job. When you are researching event security companies, make sure they have the necessary qualifications and accreditations to handle your event. The team should be vetted and have undergone the necessary checks and training to work in the security industry.
The security industry changes all the time, for example, we have recently had to update our technology to meet our customers’ requirements for keeping their staff and guests safe during the ongoing pandemic. Most recently, the government has changed the training requirements for the SIA (Security Industry Authority) licence. These changes will come into effect from the 1st of October 2021, so we are preparing our team to ensure they continue to meet SIA regulations.
