Although many national-level security agencies have the capability to deploy large numbers of security officers during natural disasters, few have the systems necessary to maintain high levels of performance as the operation scales in size. In order to meet the high demand for service in the aftermath of disasters, most national-level security companies shuffle personnel into the affected area without any special training or operational direction. Other agencies respond by subcontracting assistance, often with little vetting or attention to standardization of training and procedures. The result of these hasty mass-scale deployments is often a chaotic and uncontrolled atmosphere with inconsistent performance and professionalism.
To eliminate the common problems associated with mass scale deployment, CIS has implemented a number of unique controls. As a starting point, CIS requires that all security personnel participating in disaster response operations receive specialized training in disaster response and operate under a specialized Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). The CIS Disaster Response SOP is designed to ensure standardization of policy and protocol at CIS-protected sites. Parallel with officer training and operational guidance, CIS command and operations staff maintain close direction over field activities to ensure that personnel are operating in accordance with SOP.
If at any point the demand for our services appears to exceed our possible capability to maintain maximum performance, we immediately halt taking on new assignments. At CIS, our hard-earned reputation for effective performance and reliability is far more critical than short-term revenues from disaster services.
To ensure that CIS disaster response teams are capable of reliable and sustained operations regardless of local infrastructure, CIS maintains a complete inventory of deployment equipment and transportation systems:
With supply and transportation needs managed by our team of professional logistics coordinators, CIS disaster response teams can operate fully independent of local infrastructure for indefinite periods of time. This is a critical necessity for maintaining uninterrupted operations during major natural disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina.
