Safety First: Securing Your Home and Business

Whether you own a business or home, keeping it safe is critical. But sometimes even the most vigilant safety measures aren't enough to keep out intruders. I own a small food store in my neighborhood. I didn't use a security system or camera to monitor my store. Instead, I relied on my employees and other businesses to keep an eye out for crime. But one night after closing time, someone broke into my store and stole money and many other items. Because I didn't have a security camera or alarm in place, the police couldn't take immediate action to apprehend the thief. I learned a valuable lesson that night. I took action and had a security system installed on the premises. It was the best decision I ever made. My blog offers tips on how to keep your company or home safe. Remember, safety should always be first.

5 Reasons To Give The Gift Of Wedding Day Security Guards


One of the best ways to show your support for a loved one's wedding is to pay for something special on the big day. And while it may seem like an unusual gift, hiring them a security guard could be one of the most thoughtful things you can do. Why? Here are a few reasons that could ensure wedding day happiness and success.

1. To Keep Out Riff-Raff

Does the happy couple worry that certain party crashers may show up? Whether it's their uncouth drunk uncle, a vengeful ex-boyfriend, or just warring cousins, you can help the bride or groom relax by keeping out these unsavory elements. Security guards are perfect for ensuring only those who are on the guest list make it inside. And the newlyweds won't ever have to be involved. 

2. To Prevent Trouble

Everyone has seen videos or heard stories about fights and other problems starting at big weddings. Few things can ruin an entire wedding day faster than a loud verbal or physical fight or someone drinking too much and becoming disruptive. Security guards are trained to spot potential trouble and de-escalate situations. And if something does start, they're the best way to stop it. 

3. To Protect Valuables

The wedding could host a number of valuables that may be worth stealing. Wedding gifts — in particular, cash and checks — may sit around unattended. Many brides and grooms wear expensive jewelry. And along with guests' purses and wallets left unattended, the wedding party may leave their belongings unchaperoned in a separate space. Guards help make sure no one gets a nasty surprise. 

4. For Crowd Control

The larger the wedding, the more it may need professional assistance to keep people and things where they should be. Is your friend planning an outdoor wedding on a public beach, for instance? They'll appreciate help preventing the public from wandering in and getting in the way. And crowds tend to respond better when given directions by someone in a professional uniform. 

5. When In a Bad Neighborhood

How is the area around the actual wedding venue? Couples who want nontraditional venues or can't afford the most upscale venues might feel limited if the area isn't as safe and secure as they want. Make any venue safer for guests coming and going as well as ensure no trouble comes inside by hiring a security guard for the day. The couple gets the space they want or need, and everyone will feel better. 

Where to Start

If you've never used security services before, start by meeting with a security guard service in the wedding area. With their help, you'll find the perfect combination of services to make your gift one of the most valuable that the happy couple will receive.
