Personal Alarms For The Elderly

Posted by Mark Davis on Monday, January 31, 2022, In : Personal Security 
Dedicating time to care for our elderly loved ones, without additional assistance, has become harder.

Equally importantly, our elderly loved ones do not want to feel we are smothering them, or that they are worrying us unnecessarily. They want to keep their independence and go about their day-to-day lives without feeling that they are either a burden or that they are constantly being observed or ‘checked on’.

Personal alarms have become increasingly popular to help assist in our busy lives ...

Hotel Safety Tips For Women

Posted by Julie Stone on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, In : Hotel Safety 
Traveling alone can be a highly rewarding experience. You don't have to compromise your desires and preferences in the interest of a partner or group. You eat what you want, where you want and when you want. You see only the attractions that interest you. You move at your own pace, obey your own whims and set your own rules.

The flipside of solo travel, of course, is safety. Women especially should keep in mind a set of simple guidelines when adventuring alone.

A good place to start is hotel sa...

Micro-Bit Live Event @ Salford Lads Boys Club Manchester

Posted by Howard Trott on Saturday, October 5, 2019, In : Event Security 
We covered a very enjoyable event at The Salford Lads Boys Club. It was a micro-bit live event and most people that attended came from Media City in Manchester. The club is a great old building which was built in 1903 to get local young people off the streets and playing sports and other activities.

It was opened by Lieutenant General Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell, OM, GCMG, GCVO, KCB, KStJ, DL, who was a British Army officer, writer, founder and first Chief Scou...

Rock N Stroll Event at Lilford Park

Posted by Howard Trott on Sunday, September 29, 2019, In : Event Security 
This was the third year the event was staged. It's free for everyone that turns up at Lilford Park in Leigh and features local bands playing live music. We have provided security cover for this event since it started. The crowd are well behaved but you do get the odd idiot. When alcohol is involved you are always going to get that.

For the last 2 years I've had the same 2 lads helping me out who an excellent professionals. Ricky who is former army and served in Iraq and Afghanistan and Ben who...

Getting rejected for entry to a Nightclub

Posted by Juliet Grey on Monday, September 3, 2018, In : Nightclub Security 
Clubbing is one of those things you either love or hate. Clubbing comes with all kinds of do's and don't's. Don't wear white shoes, do wear a collared shirt, don't turn up to the club drunk, do get your name on the guest list to secure yourself entry. The list is endless. For me, getting into bars and nightclubs isn't overly difficult.

I don't turn up drunk, I know how to wear a pretty dress and I must be OK looking. Over the weekend, I attended a party at one very upmarket nightclub and altho...

Home security for the elderly

Posted by John Cherry on Friday, May 18, 2018, In : Home Security 
For seniors, one of the best ways to do this is to have a home security system installed. Be sure to choose one that includes off-site, third-party monitoring so that emergency personnel can be summoned at the first hint of danger.

As you age, the risks of becoming the victim of a violent crime steadily decrease; however, senior citizens must still take steps to stay safe in their homes because criminals do not discriminate when it comes to breaking into houses. In addition, older people are a...

Safety tips for women

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Saturday, January 13, 2018, In : Personal Security 
Although women feel more vulnerable when they’re out, it’s actually young men who are a higher risk of violence.

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Wednesday, January 18, 2017, In : Skills For Security

Such as:

  • The relative size, build, weight, age and physical health of the individual will impact on the potential for complications to occur. Obesity presents increased risk in horizontal restraints.
