Titan continues to work closely with our public sector partners and other resources to successfully plan for the needs of our clients in May of 2012. Titan has begun preparing with our clients now by reviewing emergency plans and potential additional staffing needs to ensure we are able to provide our clients with the appropriate security coverage and support they may need during the summits.
Recent demonstration events by Occupy Chicago and Take Back Chicago provided a fresh reminder that “Preparedness-Response-Recovery” is the right approach for ensuring business continuity and mitigating any potential impact on building operations. Titan has handled numerous demonstrations like these at our client sites, including large public venues. We have used these experiences to train our response team and develop protocols for civil disturbance.
Please contact your Titan representative or the corporate office to begin planning now. Based on the information we have received, your location and the potential impact the summits may have on your property, a member of our management team will be able to propose a response plan including suggestions on electronic security needs and security staffing levels.
