ATLANTA, June 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With a forceful combination of acute skill and brave determination, several tenacious U.S. Security Associates (USA) security officers recently changed the course of potentially disastrous emergencies. These at-risk individuals were inside offices, schools, and facilities that were protected by USA employees and received above-standard security service. The well-trained USA professionals entered into the respective crisis with the confidence and expertise to save lives under high pressure.
Earlier this year, a well-prepared USA security officer snapped into action and prioritized the safety of students and staff in a threatening environment. An intruder broke into the school and assaulted the officer protecting the facility. Although she sustained bodily injury, the security officer maintained a calm atmosphere, using response techniques she had learned through comprehensive security officer training. Her fortitude and readiness kept those in the school safe until the police officers arrived, when she assisted their apprehension of the intruder.
In another timely application of training skills, two USA security officers working at a hospital discovered an unconscious individual. The two officers moved the man into the hallway, where he could be immediately attended to by medical professionals. A firm knowledge of medical emergency protocol, combined with the officers' vigilance and collaboration, led to vital immediate attention for the unconscious patient.
Another life was saved at a utility company customer service center, where one quick-thinking USA officer came to the aid of an unresponsive toddler who had stopped breathing. The officer calmly but swiftly performed CPR on the boy, successfully reviving him in the critical moments before EMS personnel were able to arrive.
Reinforced by incisive security officer training, these security service professionals attest to the impact that nuanced emergency education can have for those with no other recourse. USA's diverse training program goes beyond basic pre-assignment lessons to include detailed risk management courses like Workplace Violence, Handling Incident Scenes, Conflict Management, Emergency Response, Ethics, Medical Emergencies, Behavioral Pattern Recognition, and Active Shooter. By equipping themselves with action plans in advance, security officers remain ready to immediately mobilize and navigate an emergency.
USA's training aims for more than basic compliance; courses are designed with preventative measures for public safety in mind. USA is praised for its thorough security officer training and development programs—as a result of these meticulous training measures, clients receive the payoff. As one customer says, "We value the contribution they make . . . We wanted to thank your company for sending us such well-prepared employees."
