Disaster Security Deployment: Considerations for Contractors

Disaster Security Deployment: Considerations for Contractors

Posted in September 2017 during Hurricane Harvey in Houston, TX

“I’m in Houston now for the past 7 days working a security detail for an area retailer. I’m assigned to the 2000 – 0800 shift. I’ve worked similar types of details in my home area but this is my first out of state detail.

Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst: ‘As Luck would have it…’

Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst: ‘As Luck would have it…’

A phrase like this is repeated ad nauseam among our community but it does not really hit home until we understand why, for protective security in particular, this is so vital. No matter how much we plan or how much protective intelligence we utilize, the possibility of an ambush style attack such as this still exists. The most alarming issue, however, is the more we plan and utilize protective intelligence the more we mitigate all predictive incidents, therefore leaving only a worst case ambush style scenario

Weapon Maintenance Tips – Cleaners, Lube, Protectants

Weapon Maintenance Tips – Cleaners, Lube, Protectants

As we commonly see in firearms training, weapons maintenance is a reoccurring issue, most often due to too little or too much, in respect to both maintenance and application of products like cleaners, lube and/or protectants.

Personally, I pre-treat the applicable parts of my weapons and mags with Militec-1, clean and preserve them with RemOil, and for prepping a carry gun for use, I wipe it down and apply Rem-DriLube.

Whatever you use, make sure you test it is similar conditions to how you intend to use it. I.E. carry it for a while and then take the weapon straight to the range without any “range prep” of the weapon to see how it runs.
