It’s no secret that the security landscape has drastically changed since 9/11 even in Germany.
Schools, religious institutions and entertainment venues have been forced to deal with this sad fact that no one is safe anymore on a daily basis.
Together, we must face these new security threats and collaboration and communication are key to helping to ensure the safety of all those involved in transportation.
Emergency preparedness can be challenging.
With so many distressing possibilities to consider, it can be difficult to know from where to start.
Of course, we all know it is impossible to prepare for every possible scenario, but there are a few broad measures we can all take to improve safety in transportation.
In terms of secure transportation and in the case of an emergency situation that requires evacuation, it is of big importance to share emergency contact info with the event planners and security teams prior to the event. We have developed an internal emergency response plan to protect our clients at all cost, but sharing that plan with others closely involved in organization of the event is the key.
Many security details have assessed the different levels of danger, liability, and possibility attributed to different risk scenarios. Whether you are at a business meeting or hotel or even a dinner party, never be afraid to ask for a security brief on how to respond in the event of an emergency.
Emergency planning should involve collaboration with security and those working in and around the route of transportation. One venue alone can throw hundreds of events every year, and because many events have various set-ups, different safety measures and protocols are required.
We are able to provide a wide range of coverage, but, being collaborative in emergency situation can be vital for safety success.
To sum it up,
Talk with your security drivers about emergency protocols prior to events!
