When your company, or its security team, is notified of a critical incident…explosion…fire…natural
disaster…your list of priorities immediately grows to hundreds
of items. All are important; many critical. The key to addressing them
quickly, effectively and with an eye to protecting your people, your assets
and your company reputation is to delegate and outsource as many as possible
to a trusted partner so that you can focus on the things only you are
able to do. Our clients trust Athos to plan, staff, and manage security
resources - including off-duty officers - so they can focus on other priorities.
A critical incident may rapidly deplete area security, police and safety
logistics resources, making last minute hiring impossible. Managing relationships
and coordinating with government agencies, and departments, while being
mindful of company needs and goals, requires experience and judgement.
Agreements and planning in place with Athos in advance best positions
a company to respond and “return to business.”
“WE’VE BEEN THERE”
As former corporate Security Directors, we’ve been there –
from pipeline ruptures, to facility fires and emergency shutdowns…
As former federal agents, we’ve been there – from creating
and leading incident command posts, to heading interagency task forces
and managing regulatory, law enforcement and safety needs where lives
and property are at stake…
As a company, Athos has been there - from partnering with clients to manage
the aftermaths of hurricanes Isaac and Gustave in 2008, Hurricane Harvey
in 2017, to tornados in Joplin, Missouri and Moore, Oklahoma in 2011 and
2013. The Athos team has supported company responses to facility emergencies,
such as a major west coast pipeline spill which had dozens of agencies
involved in the cleanup effort over a period of months, overseeing dozens
of security and safety contractor companies and hundreds of personnel.

to – major incidents.
