Security Specialists

Physical security/risk management and mitigation orchestration services


According to the Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP), “The world is less peaceful today that at any time in the past decade.” A person’s safety can no longer be assumed or expected, it is time to take measures into your own hands for the safety of your business, your clients, your executives, your family, and yourself.

Airport Meet-and-Assist Services

Airport meet-and-assist services ensure clients are secure upon arrival. Prior to departure, a detailed resume of the security consultant is shared with the client to eliminate any risk. On arrival, our security consultant will meet the executive at the aircraft door and escort him through immigration and baggage claim and deliver him directly to the secure transport team. The same service is offered upon departure as well, ensuring the visitor checked-in and escorted through all procedures.

SecuCab

SecuCab is a new service offered by ACA that makes security services available to everyone. Much like a regular taxi services, SecuCab will pick-up and drop-off clients to their preferred destinations, but with an informed and trained driver who is able to handle and crisis or emergency situation.

Evacuations and Extractions

Evacuations and extractions services are offered for crisis scenarios. Subjects are removed from the crisis and evacuated from the area of threat to a secure location.

Safety Training

Safety training provides individuals with the knowledge and skills to manage a crisis safely. These include the knowledge of planning for a fire and fire drills, beginner first aid, and reacting in a crisis. For corporate organizations, the value of this training lies not only with the knowledge and skills it provides to employees to manage a crisis, but in the damage control that comes as a result of this knowledge. For families, this knowledge is priceless. Your children and loved ones are your responsibility, and you need to be well trained to react in the safest manner in the case of an emergency.

Safety training differs from fire training, first aid training, evacuation training and personal protection training.
