Your Security Is Our Commitment!
New York (PRWEB) July 28, 2016
In the wake of the devastating murder of 49 people and the wounding of 53 more last month at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, one of the nation’s leading security guard firms has announced that it will provide at-cost security services for LGBT events and gatherings in communities across the nation.
With 437 field offices spanning all 50 states, National Security Service (NSS) is a recognized specialist in event security, maintaining a highly trained corps of licensed and insured Event Security Guards with extensive experience in securing gatherings of every type and scale.
Company officials said the tragic murders in Orlando--part terrorism and part hate crime--drove home the need for high-quality professional security service at LGBT gatherings. While the killer, who also died in the hours-long nightmare, professed loyalty to ISIL and spoke of his actions in terms of taking up arms for that radical group, those who knew him also said he had a history of angry, outspoken homophobia--and that it was no accident that he chose a gay nightclub 130 miles from his home as the target of his venom.
The attack was the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter in U.S. history and, for many in the LGBT community and beyond, a grim reminder of the depth of hate some people harbor.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this tragic episode, and with their families and friends. We are greatly saddened and angry that such evil exists in our midst,” an NSS spokesperson said. “At National Security Service we want to do what we can, to help protect LGBT people throughout the country from harm.”
To that end, he said, the company is forgoing profits at LGBT events it secures nationwide, and charging organizers only for the actual out-of-pocket costs of staffing the event with NSS security guards. The company has a proven track record of ensuring safety and security for everything from corporate meetings to parties, fundraisers, and promotional events all the way up to securing major entertainment and sporting events.
Event security can be a challenging task for all but the most professional of security guards, the NSS official said, because it calls for not only high-level security guard skills, but also the good judgment and sensitivity to keep guests safe without becoming intrusive.
“It takes a rare breed of event security guards to bring that uncommon blend of qualities and qualifications to an event,” he said, adding that such thorough professionalism becomes even more critical when serving people who can too often be targets of hate and violence, as the Orlando attack showed.
He said that any LGBT group planning an event is encouraged to contact NSS to discuss their security requirements and options and to learn more about the special, deeply discounted pricing available to them.
“If you are hosting an LGBT gathering, just call us toll free at (888) 386-4068. We will provide an at-cost quote and dispatch trained security guards to your venue location,” he said.
