Priority #1 - Active Shooter Plans For Your Complex And Buildings Operational 9 A.M. Monday Morning, If Not Sooner!

Priority #1
Active Shooter Plans For Your Complex And Buildings Operational 9 A.M. Monday Morning!

The security of places of employment, entertainment and public gathering, which includes anything for a hospital to a casino, must have secure response plans in place.  If not, the liability is beyond believed in economic and social responsibility.

The shooting in Las Vegas is another reminder of what is waiting to happen and will!  We repeat our information regarding other incidents recently.

News Report:  http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/10/02/las-vegas-shooting-at-least-20-dead-more-than-100-injured-in-massacre-near-mandalay-bay-casino-1-suspect-down.html

We must be proactive and prepared!

The nightclub killings, the fired employee/client who his so pissed they resort to an attack with a gun.

Do not brush off the attack on the Shopping Mall in Kenya, Africa as a world apart from where you are!  Naivety Kills!

The Washington killings of were but one gunman on a Naval facility that did not allow trained personnel to carry their weapons.  This Mall, like all large malls in Africa and Asia, has armed guards and the terrorists and nutcases know it.

What was thought could happen went down in upper scale Mall in Kenya and the words of the Somalian terrorist group al-Shabaab, which has links to Al-Qaeda, has now claimed responsibility for the attack were clear, “Muslims leave, Non-Muslim we are killing you”.

The message is clear and is ringing out loudly around the world, reactivity still kills, proactivity saves lives.  

It is about preparedness to the ninth degree and beyond.  There is no more pussyfooting around regarding people who hate you and wish you dead!

All western Malls, public places such as stadiums, concert halls and places of gathering always have been vulnerable, but we brushed it to one side and believed a security checkpoint or handbag search would suffice.  

Just like 9/11, our airports had National Guard stationed everywhere to protect the public.  Wrong, it was just a show that would appease the public, the guardsmen never were given bullets for their weapons!

Now, not tomorrow or next week, but now, we must prepare for all eventualities and trust no one!

LENSS the communications solution beyond anything you have heard of, seen or encountered. 

The solution is there for your preparedness plans and staff to advise and assist in your implementation of such needed plans and will evaluate the risks, answers and full preparedness operational requirements.  We cannot do it all, be we are able to provide the building blocks for you to take the steps.  Communications in the palm of the hand are first, all within thirty seconds of issuing a BOLO to staff within and the law enforcement and emergency response.  It far more than that which cannot be explained here.

Our job is to Reduce the Fear Factor and Increase the Comfort Zone and have been operational worldwide with expertise from all situations since the 1960’s.

Please, Please Do NOT Do Nothing!  
Be aware that there is no time to put this on the back burner.  As I stated last week on the Blog:

So, someone knew something did they not?

If you have concerns about someone, you need to respond to management within your company immediately or if it is a family member, discuss and take action for the safety of others.

What will be the next incident that will be splashed across newspaper headlines and television screens?

Guess what?

We did nothing and it is Déjà vu, all over again…


Do not be this week’s prior headlines...


We are in the NOW and
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…

Heavy Mental Jacket...



Heavy Mental Jacket... 
by Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO CommSmart Global Group



Someone Knew Something & Did Nothing!

President Trump states that the government will be looking after our war heroes the way they should always be treated. 

The issues are many, varied and many die each day at their own hands.  They feel lost forgotten and as if they are not respected.  They are!

Mental health is a major part of the concerns.

Yesterday it was a sword, tomorrow whatever is at hand to end a life will be used. 

Will you call to ban those items too?


Discussions on such diverse subjects as gun control and mental illness do go hand in hand.  It is the assumption that banning something will make it be removed from the face of the earth and never cause a problem again.  


Wrong!

Allowing someone who is mentally diminished to own, use or play with a gun is more than foolish.  The VA (Veterans Administration bans veterans of diminished responsibility to own or have access to a gun, in fact, they cannot own new property either, that, though, is another story.

Look back at prohibition and what happened with alcohol availability and consumption.  Booze was still available and consumed by the gallon, as it was the "forbidden fruit", so to speak.

300 million + guns are owned and available in the USA, 18,000 people committed suicide with a firearm as the ultimate silencer, 8,000 people were murdered by someone using a gun as the instrument of death.  

A lot of guns and a lot of information, which statistically proves what?  Guns are out there and no matter what, people will use them.  If they were banned, people would still have died by some other means or method.

Mental health laws are also being called over the coals as well, anti-social behavior is not listed as a treatable disorder.  

Sadly, if we look on the streets of "Any Town, USA", you will find individuals who are homeless and live wherever they can sleep and store their stuff safely.  

Shelters are full to the brim and many try to assist these people.  Shelters are far from safe and are a major part of the problem.  Some are run by ex-criminals and drug dealers, who, take advantage of the social down and outs.  The fox is in charge of the hen house and this is accepted by local city councils and law enforcement.


Most homeless do not want your help in any way, shape or form.  The comprehension of their actions and living standards are lost on them.  They know not what they do and how it is affecting us all.

The straight jack of a ban will not work on guns.  The recognizing of mental health issues as a major problem that needs solving is a priority.  Which will receive the most attention?

Watch your headlines, listen to the commentators and see politicians flip/flop on the subject of guns.  No disrespect, but Former President Obama stated he will do all in the power of his office to make a change in the event of the school killings. Extreme well-chosen words that were and are empty in the ability for him and his former office to make a change.  It is Washington politicians that have the ultimate control of what happens in this nation, not a President.  Even we, do not count!

President Trump is a Second Amendment Supporter and will be looking for gun laws in his administration.

Individuals who come across as weirdos and strange to society are people to be concerned about.  Why do we not voice our concerns about these people? 

Simple, if the person has not broken any laws, there is nothing that can be done. It is not illegal to stand in a corner and stare at people or talk to one's self.  

Wackos are among us and we only see some of them for a few seconds and make our judgment.  Family members, co-workers, and neighbors see even more and it is their concern that needs reporting, if they feel vulnerable, then the action is required.

Gossip is part of this problem, social media is a sad section of today's society and fuels the other side of the problem.  Miss-statements, rumors, and pure wrong information make this situation even worse. Followed by the media grasping at all information being stated, airing it before it has been confirmed and adding to the confusion.

It is the time to stand firm and help us all in regard to strange individuals in the workplace, on the streets and even in our own homes.  

You may not be around to regret your missed action and only others will talk about what you should have done and why you ignored the facts.

 SUPPORT OUR VETERANS, EVERYDAY, EVERY SINGLE DAY!

 
WE are in the NOW and KEEP YOU; in the KNOW...
