Hurricane GUSTAV Private Security and Crisis Managers Support in Gulf Coast RegionAugust 31, 2008
August 31, 2008 Strategic Security Corp. (SSC) awarded Hurricane Gustav contract for private armed security and crisis management teams. SSC mobilized our crisis response teams to support those trapped in the Gulf Coast Region and assist clients in the recovery efforts of Hurricane Gustav.
We regularly establish mobile command post and incident management team to support our emergency management operations. We can deploy our security subject experts whom are either active or retired members of elite agencies within the intelligence gathering, law enforcement and public safety community to affected regions where they will assess the state of security and safety at designated client locations, identify ingress and egress routes, provide and coordinate critical supplies and resources such as fuel and food, and implement contingency plans to evacuate people as requested.
In addition to the incident management team, several Protective Security Teams can be activated to travel into regions affected by the hurricane to protect client personnel and to help secure assets. To support the logistics and movement of personnel and supplies, dedicated air assets, consisting of helicopters, are standing by, as well as fuel trucks and buses to transport victims of the hurricane.
