With the 4th of July here in a few days, security guard service is in high demand. We will be working around the clock with the request for security guards to provide perimeter protection for large outdoor events and overnight security guard service to protect expensive firework stands. We wanted to leave you with a few quick safety tips that, if followed, will help ensure a safe and enjoyable celebration:
1. Firework Safety: Follow all local laws and regulations if you plan to use fireworks. Only use fireworks in designated areas and follow proper handling and lighting procedures. Keep a safe distance from fireworks, and never aim them at people, animals, or buildings.
2. Grilling Safety: If you plan to grill, keep a close eye on the grill and never leave it unattended. Keep the grill away from flammable materials, such as trees or buildings. Ensure proper ventilation and use long-handled tools to prevent burns.
3. Crowd Management: If hosting or attending a public event, be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity to your security guard service provider or law enforcement. Stay in well-lit and populated areas, and establish a meeting point in case you get separated from your group.
4. Home Security: If you’re away from home, ensure that all doors, windows, and entry points are securely locked. Consider using timers for lights or asking a trusted neighbor to keep an eye on your property. Avoid posting about your absence on social media platforms.
5. Alcohol Consumption: If consuming alcohol, do so responsibly. Don’t drink and drive or allow others to do so. Assign a designated driver or use alternative transportation options, such as a ride-sharing service or designated driver service.
6. Pet Safety: Loud noises from fireworks can be distressing for pets. Keep them in a safe and secure area indoors, preferably with some background noise to mask the sounds. Ensure they have proper identification in case they get frightened and run away.
