Disaster Emergency Response

Our ability to respond quickly in a time of crisis, with commitment to our customers’ business continuity plans, is one of U.S. Security Associates’ greatest strengths.

At U.S. Security Associates (USA), we understand the impact of a proactive approach in minimizing loss during a crisis situation. We have decades of experience protecting clients during and after major disasters, assisting with recovery efforts, offering security solutions to enable business continuity, and working effectively with federal, state, and local government resources.

We recognize that oftentimes protection of personnel, facilities, and assets involves deployment of resources at the earliest stages possible to pro-actively mitigate the event’s impact on business. We have a long-standing track record and proud history of responding swiftly to clients in need with armed, unarmed or hybrid teams of officers. Our response teams are staffed with licensed, experienced retired or off-duty law enforcement officers, military personnel, and career security professionals.

Based on our proven experience with resources for disaster and emergency response, many Fortune 500 companies count on USA in times of crisis.

Through our Disaster and Emergency Response Team (DERT), USA clients have access to additional, professionally trained personnel who can rapidly mobilize in response to threats from weather-related emergencies, fire, labor disputes, or other disruptions, large or small.
