If you are in the position of having to organise some kind of large scale independent event in Townsville or Cairns, then one of the first and most important things on your to do list is to arrange security guards for the length of your planned event.
It is very usual to not be awarded the appropriate licences for large events if you cannot provide evidence of sufficient security, so in that sense, it really should be of the first things you put into place when you have an idea of likely crowd numbers.
There are always lots of things to consider, and fortunately the team here at Protection Plus Security tick all of the boxes.
Here are some key considerations when hiring a security guard.
- Is the agency a national one or a locally owned one? Each has their own benefits, with a national agency tending to be more drilled and regulated as a whole, but a local agency having that special knowledge of your hometown could be handy when it comes to security issues. It isn’t necessarily a case of one being better than the other, just two different ways to look at it.
- Make sure to hire a firm that lists customer service among its main focuses. As the organiser of a big event, you want to have the safe knowledge that you can get in touch with you security firm whenever you need to. Leaving them to their own devices isn’t always a good thing.
- Do the staff wear uniforms? Sometimes, you might not want a real policeman, authority style look to your security, wanting instead something a little more casual. It all depends entirely on the kind of event you are organising, but it can be helpful to hire a firm that caters to these types of differences and preferences.
- And finally, what is their reputation like? It is really important to know if you are hiring a firm with a reputation of being heavy handed, or lazy, or anything else that could cause a problem.
