The threat of terrorism is an unfortunate reality that we live with today. Terrorism by definition strives to instill terror through acts of violence that catch us unaware. While these acts are not restricted to any particular group or geographic region, there have historically been an increased number of attacks on Western targets over the years. Over the past few years we have witnessed terror attacks around the world which have been focused on schools, places of worship and the workplace. 2015 saw a terror attack carried out in California, not even a month after the devastating coordinated terror attacks in Paris. For the Greater Toronto Area, and particularly for schools, places of worship and community centers, this threat needs to be addressed. Providing a safe environment will ensure the continuity of the Western way of life that the city embodies.
A.S. Consulting works with schools, places of worship and community organizations to assess and improve their existing security measures. All of our employees are trained and certified in emergency first aid and CPR, and must be licensed or working towards licensing as a security guard under the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
Our goal is to work with our clients to improve their overall security and to ensure that they are as protected as possible. We assess any existing or potential threat and devise a complete workplan and implementation schedule in line with our customers' budgets and needs. Ensuring the continuity and further development of their business is both our clients' success and ours.
