While many of us in the UK and around the world anticipate future terror attacks, few of us will have considered any type of family emergency plan in place. It is highly unlikely that any of us will forget the 7 July 2005 London bombings (often referred to as 7/7) and most recently On 26 June 2015, an Islamist mass shooting attack in Tunisia to mention only a few. (Follow this link for more examples)

After attacks and incidents such as these, often ask themselves how can I keep my family safe and ask, “What would I do?” So, if we think or believe terrorist attacks are inevitable, why do so few of us prepare themselves? The answer may lie in the term “terrorist attack” itself.

There is no single, universally accepted, definition of terrorism. One definition of Terrorism is the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.’” It is difficult to be fully prepared for something when it’s not clear exactly what it is that you’re preparing for or when it is going to happen.

Examples of Acts of Terrorism :
  • Assassinations
  • Kidnappings
  • Hijackings
  • Bomb scares and bombings
  • Cyber attacks (computer-based)
  • The use of chemical, biological, nuclear, and radiological weapons

High-Risk Targets for Acts of Terrorism:
  • Military and civilian government locations
  • International airports
  • Large cities
  • High-profile landmarks
  • Large public gatherings
  • Water and food supplies
  • Utilities
  • Corporate centers
  • Mailings (explosives or chemical/biological agents may be sent through the mail

Security might be the last thing on your long list of things to organise for your wedding or special party but take it from us here at we’ve soon come to realise that this is in fact an aspect of your big day you can’t be without.
 
All it takes is one unwelcome guest or one alcohol fueled brawl to ruin the day you’ve put so much effort into ensuring is perfect.

Some more examples of things that you might need to think about:

Mum

Nine out of ten mothers (an unverified statistic) believe that they, and they only, know how their children should celebrate their marriage. They’ve planned the horse-drawn carriage and the perfect cake and their children absolutely hate it all. The truth is, mums, is that your children aren’t having “a wedding” or any old wedding or even your wedding. Our tip is to have one of our wedding security available to convince them that you need a little time alone and give you a little space on your day.

Rain

You can’t stop the rain, but the rain won’t stop you. If you’re a smart cookie you’ve planned or even booked a wet weather option that is comparable to your outdoors ceremony venue. But if you’re not that well planned, don’t stress, it’s only a wedding, not open heart surgery and a little bit of rain never hurt anybody. Our tip is to have one of our smartly dressed wedding security operatives to hand with a umbrella or two

Children

Little humans are popular at weddings. We love to give them chores like carrying the flower petals and diamond rings and our wedding photos are better for it. That said, not all children like to walk where we’d like them to walk or do what we’d like them to do. Things like running around during the ceremony, screaming, having a little pre-taste of the wedding cake or food and little accidents or injuries. Our tip is to have one of our first aid trained wedding security operatives to hand to control, guide and repair those little angels.

Drunkenness

So many people put drunkenness at wedding receptions down to serving alcohol and food liberally, or too liberally, and although that’s a contributing factor, let me throw you a side hook and say you’re probably inviting the wrong people to your intimate celebration of your marriage if they’re going to be your definition of a fool in a few hours. You can choose your friends but you can't choose your family so sometimes not inviting them is not a option. Our tip would be to have our conflict management and physical intervention trained security who will be able to deal with issues quietly and discretely so as not to embarrass anyone.

Photos

Photo bombing is not something that should be encouraged at a wedding, family and guests that just won't put their mobile away or move into position for that all important family photo, romantic photo and video footage. Our tip would be to have our trained security to control the crowd and inform guests of where they need to be when.

Theft

All of the wedding presents that you family and guest have kindly bought for you need to be looked after as not everyone you know are completely honest and unfortunately those precious shiny items may develop legs and go missing Our tip would be to have our trained security place them in a secure location once you have received them or maintain a watch on them until you wish to collect them.

With increasing rates of terrorism, crime and violence, people especially celebrities, corporate executives, and political office holders are getting more worries and less sleep. For this reason, personal and home security have become very important aspects for people’s safety and happiness.

A bodyguard or Close Protection Officer is a very smart measure if you want the peace mind that you have ensured your safety as well as that of your family.  At work or at home close protection officers integrate their duties into your daily pattern of life:

The most serious obstacles to personal safety is Lack of Situational Awareness, Complacency and fatalism. “It won’t happen to me” and “if it’s going to happen, It’s going to happen” is dangerous thinking. Recent incidents and events in today’s society have changed the way we think about our own security but not necessarily dimin-ished the threats we face. Today, the most prevalent threat we all face no matter where we are is crime.

A criminal attack against you or your family can take place and anywhere at any time, as can a fire or other disaster. However, you can influence what happens to you by assuming more responsibility for your own security and maintaining a reasonable level of situational awareness.

Residential Security  

Security in the home is a vital component of any  personal security program. The following guidelines  should be considered and used in reviewing your  residential security.  
All entrances, including service doors and gates, should have quality locks— preferably deadbolt. Check your:  

Front Door Rear Door Garage Door(s) Patio Door Sliding Glass Door Gates  
Don’t leave keys “hidden” outside the home, Leave an extra key with a trusted neighbour or colleague.  

Keep doors locked even when you or  family members are at home.  Have window locks installed on all windows.  Use them.  Lock louvered windows— especially on the  ground floor.

Have locks installed on your fuse boxes  and external power sources.

If you have window grilles and bars,  review fire safety.

Don’t block bedroom  Windows with permanent grilles if the windows may be used for emergency exit.        
 
If you have burglar or intrusion alarms, check and  use them.  

Have at least one fire detector on each floor, and  be sure to have one in the kitchen.
Periodically check them and replace batteries when necessary.  

Keep torches in several areas in the house and check  the batteries often, especially if you have children in  your home.  (They love to play with them!)  
 
A family dog can be a deterrent to criminals. But remember, even the best  dog can be controlled by  food or poison.

Choose a location to live that offers the most security,  the less remote  the safer your home will be,  particularly in a neighbourhood close to police station  or fire station.  
Know your neighbours:  Try develop a rapport with  them and offer to keep an eye on each other’s homes, especially during  days out or holidays.                  

If you observe any unusual activity, report it to the police immediately.  

Establish safe family living patterns. If you  understand the importance of your contribution to the family’s overall security, the entire household  will be safer.  

While at home, you and your family should rehearse safety drills and be aware of procedures to escape danger and get help.  

Educate family members and domestic  help in the proper way to answer the  telephone at home.  Vary daily routines; avoid predictable  patterns.  Know where all family members are at all  times.
