6 Signs Your Business Needs Help from a Top Security Company

Crime is prevalent everywhere you go. Unfortunately, matters may be so bad, that for some business owners it may be necessary to obtain the professional assistance offered by corporate security services to help protect their assets, staff and customers. Many factors influence whether you’ll need the assistance of professional security services. Below, we’ve listed 6 of the most important signs that indicate it is time to secure your business from crime. 

Are You Worried About Crime?

If you’re worried about crime or if you’re located in an area where crime is prevalent, then you will need help from one of the reputable security companies in Johannesburg. 

You’re Concerned about the Response Time in an Emergency

Calling the police is a good thing. But, it often takes time for them to arrive at the scene. 

Theft by Staff or Customers

A reputable security company in Johannesburg can set up advanced security systems in order to limit theft on-site by staff members as well as customers. 

Vandalism 

You may be located in an area where vandalism is rife. Corporate security services can help to reduce these risks or even prevent these types of acts of vandalism to your building. 

Are You Worried about Your Employers Working Late? 

The safety of your employers is important. That is why hiring a reliable security company in Johannesburg to set up a safer environment for staff while they work late is absolutely vital. This will also make the staff feel more comfortable and safe at work. 

You Serve Alcohol at Your Business

Alcohol consumption can lead to many adverse reactions; one of which may include trouble with drunk customers such as “acting out” or fights and brawls – and the list goes on. Having security guards and appropriate systems in place will greatly reduce the chaos which can be caused by alcohol consumption.

What Is the Role of Tactical Security?

When you think about tactical security, SWAT is what most often comes to mind. And, that is indeed what it is. The abbreviation for SWAT is “Special Weapons and Tactics”. These very specially trained forces brave each day to help protect their clients. The role of SWAT in corporate security consists of many things. Needless to say, it is an extremely high-risk job.

What Does a Tactical Security Team Do?

Protective service companies undergo intensive and very specialised training. They provide services in a variety of areas such as armed response, SWAT services and off-site monitoring to name a few.

Armed Response

Armed response has to be on standby in any dangerous event or incident. Highly trained teams are continuously kept up to date with the latest criminal activities and threats and are always improving on their current skills.

Comprehensive training includes working with various weapons, night vision equipment and target practice. Physical training is essential to keep fit, so as to be able to react to any dangerous situation including house penetrations, hostage situations, driveway hijackings and lots more. They need to stay prepared every second of every day.

SWAT

SWAT teams are sometimes comprised of groups of skilled and professional ex-military operatives who also stay in shape and up to date with military training. Security companies sometimes deploy a SWAT team to provide extra security measures and support to an already existing tactical security team.

Tactical Off-Site Monitoring

Off-site monitoring is vital to ensure that an area or areas are secured at all times. Tactical teams will continue to guard the place and be on standby in case of an emergency.

Protecting citizens are one of the most important roles that tactical securities play. They will continue to be the first in line when it comes to stopping criminal activity.

TRSS is fighting crime on William Nicol

William Nicol is a renowned road in Johannesburg. If you are not hearing about it in the news because of the traffic, then you are likely hearing about a hi-jacking, smash-and-grab, or other criminal activity.

Many residents of Fourways are hypervigilant when they travel along William Nicol. Even with visible police activity, people are scared and they don’t feel protected. Blueheart.africa recently reported that CEO of Nashua Central, Phil McDiarmid, launched a site to investigate the crime on William Nicol and see how his company could assist. TRSS, along with RSS and OSM joined forces with Phil to provide security solutions on William Nicol and Leslie Roads, the two roads that were identified as areas of immediate concern.

TRSS installed industry-leading ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras to monitor all passing vehicles on these roads. The IP cameras are linked to amazing software that alerts our security teams and the SAPS of potential criminals and criminals that have been involved in crime so that they can be stopped and apprehended before more crimes are committed.

An issue that hits close to home

Brett Fisher, CEO – RSS Security Services & Executive Director for TRSS Reaction, as one of the first students to attend Fourways High School when it opened and is currently raising his family in Fourways.

“I have lived in the Fourways area for over 30 years, I have 4 boys, the eldest is 14 years old and attends Fourways High with some of my old teachers! It is no secret that we have been hit with a crime wave. I hope to see more businesses, estates and the community getting behind this initiative. I would like them to engage with Nashua and OSM or ourselves to get on board with cameras and OSM so we can blanket the entire area and get the crime under control – as mentioned, we have the technology at our fingertips – let’s use it and make Fourways a great place for our families to grow up in,” says Brett.

This is just one of the many ways that TRSS supports and protects their community. If you need residential or commercial security services, contact us today.

TRSS Medical Emergency Response

Many South Africans spend thousands of Rands every month on medical aid programs to ensure that their families have access to private healthcare when the inevitable happens. With the levels of trauma based incidents on the increase both on South African roads as well as at home, it is becoming more and more vital to bridge the gap between the scene of an incident and the private healthcare facility your medical aid grants you access to.

RSS Medical Emergency Response has one goal: to deliver the most appropriate level of qualification to the scene of a medical emergency in the quickest possible time. In the event of a medical emergency, a patients chances of survival can deteriorate by as much as 10% per minute. Over the past 3 years, RSS Medical Emergency Response has played a pivotal role in the outcomes of more than 1000 patients who have experienced a medical emergency while at home.

RSS Medical aims to reduce our response times by adopting two specific strategies namely only RSS Medical clients having access to this premier service and having defined borders to the areas the RSS Medical vehicles respond within.

This system allows anyone on the property to have access including your family, staff or visitors. All that is needed is a single call to the RSS Medical. To ensure the most rapid response possible, please be willing to give the following details:

Your name and contact number
Confirm the house number, Estate name and the road the entrance of the Estate is on (this is preprogrammed onto our dispatch systems however we do need to confirm these details)
The nature of the incident and what has happened
Once this information is received, the medical vehicle will be dispatched and arrive shortly. Currently, RSS Medical is proud to boast an average response time of 6 minutes. This is however influenced by factors such as traffic patterns, position of the vehicle when it is dispatched and availability of the vehicle. Should the RSS Medical vehicle be already committed to assisting another client, RSS Medical will dispatch one of the service providers that arrive on behalf of RSS Medical Emergency Response.

RSS Medical hopes to never have to respond to either you or your family while at home but in the event of a medical emergency, we are just a phone call away. Save the number and maybe it will save your life. (Number only made available to clients of RSS Medical).
