Emergency Security Guards

Usually, when you enter into a security guard contract you only think of “normal” situations and places where security is needed. Unfortunately, many things happen unexpectedly, such as store gate breaks, alarms going off, or fires starting.  When the extraordinary happens, the security company must be able to provide security emergency response.

Thus, when you are looking for a security company, ensure that the company offers emergency security services as well.  This article will help you choose the right security company.

Understanding the need for emergency response security

We also ensure that our clients understand the need for emergency response security and we always try to make them part of the emergency response system. They have to understand that apart from “normal” security the need for emergency response security can arise at any time. Understanding the need and being part of the response system makes it much easier for our clients to successfully resolve any emergency with our assistance.

What are the roles of security guards during an emergency?

Although we train our security guards how to respond to a variety of emergency alarms, it depends on the specific arrangements between us and every individual client what the basic roles of the security guards should be during an emergency. Usually, these arrangements are documented in the contract between the security company and the client.


The protocol given by one client can be quite different from what is given by another client. For instance, one client might stipulate that a specific person in the company and the police should be informed immediately in response to an intruder alarm and then wait for the arrival of the police.  Another client might expect the emergency security guards to investigate the main cause of the alarm and secure the area.

Generally speaking, however, the roles might include the following:

  • Alerting the client and authorities as first responders.
  • Evacuating people from the danger zone.
  • Controlling a panicked and disorientated crowd.
  • Ensuring that people and property are secured.

Security emergency response: A multi-layered approach

Successful security emergency responses always require some type of multi-layered approach. A simple form of a multi-layered approach is when, for instance,  responding to an alarm, a guard also informs a supervisor, another guard, and the dispatcher.

If a security guard witnesses a crime, the guard should, usually,  immediately call the police, the security company’s control room and a person allocated by the client and then observe the area. Each “layer” – the security guard, the security company, and the police will each form a “layer” with a specific role to play.
