MetroWest Summer Fest 2013
MetroWest is an extensive and vast residential and commercial community that boasts Orlando's Top golf course and supports The First Tee of Central Florida, a children's nonprofit organization. In order to raise money for First Tee, MetroWest hosted their first ever Summerfest event this year. CIS was honored to be invited to participate in MetroWest Summerfest 2013. On Sunday, June 9th, CIS attended Summerfest, bringing along a K9 unit, the Mobile Command Center, and a few of our Honor Guard Officers. KKP Security Group (CIS's management company) donated a dunk tank to help raise money while both CIS and KKP staff participated in the events and games. KC Poulin, CIS CEO, and his family came out to support the cause as well. The event was a huge hit with hundreds of attendees touring the Mobile Command Center and talking with officers about what we do, our goals in the communities we serve, and our methodology. Orlando Police Department and Orange County Sheriff's Office also were in attendance. Sheriff Demings of the OCSO took time to meet board members and residents alike. We were able to network and conduct heavy CCBPI via stickers, lollipops, and handing out CIS Balloons. The event was a great time for all who came out; needless to say, we're already looking forward to MetroWest Summerfest 2014!

Get Ready for Summer
Submitted by Mark E. Puetz

For many of our clients the summer brings increases in activity. More often than not, such activity is a good thing. Children playing outside, people out and about more, and staying out later into the evening, are good things. These are indications of people who are comfortable in their community, comfortable on the property. Of course, the other side of that coin is that summer brings dangers too. More people out and about means more opportunities for accidents, or for criminals, or just for mischief in general.  

Moving into the summer should not be a surprise, though. Summers come every year. We should be able to plan for them. We should have a pretty good idea of what activity to expect, just based on what we saw last summer, and the summer before. Here are a few ideas about what sorts of things you might want to consider.

  • Are all of your locks, lights, gates, cameras, or other security equipment in good working order? Have you built necessary acquisitions or repairs into your budget, or coordinated with your supervisors to ensure those are addressed?
  • Have you coordinated with your security service to ensure they will provide you additional officers if you need them? Have you built these increases into your budget, or coordinated with your supervisors to ensure they can be assumed?
  • Have you coordinated with your local law enforcement agency so they can inform you about any trends they are seeing this year that may be different?
  • Have all of your personnel received your most recent and up-to-date training and information about security and safety practices? Have all of your tenants received your most recent and up-to-date information?
  • Are all of your contact and resource numbers up to date?
  • Do you have enough incident reports or forms or other such documents to get you through the season?
  • Are all of your contracts, insurance forms, and other such documents in order?

    Of course, this list is not exhaustive. It's just a short list of examples, things to think about and prepare for as we move into summer.
