FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
First Online Fire Safety Training for Security Guards Available Globally
Los Angeles, CA - July 7, 2016 - Security Training Center,® LLC. today announced the launch of the first online fire safety training program for security guards. The four-hours online course is available to all security guards across the globe for $49.99. Any guard with an Internet-connected computer or tablet can learn critical fire safety/life-safety skills. The focus of the training is protection of life.
"Knowledge of fire protection is critical, but often overlooked in training programs for security professionals," said Alex Haddox, M.Ed., Principle of Security Training Center,® LLC. "Although security topics such as access control, intrusion alarm response, trespassers, crime and terrorism prevention, patrol, and powers of arrest are emphasized in security training, fire safety and fire related life safety are as equally important responsibilities for security guards. In fact, fires, and other fire related emergencies, such as evacuations, are more likely to cause injury or death to personnel and major damage to property than most security related incidents."
Security staff that can contribute to a fire safe facility are infinitely more valuable and desirable to clients and property owners than security personnel who are only aware of security specific duties. This is true whether a uniformed security guard protecting a property such as an office building or factory, or a VIP protection detail ensuring the safety of a principle in a variety of settings.
"Making this course available online, globally, will save lives," concluded Alex Haddox, M.Ed., Principle of Security Training Center,® LLC.
