* Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
One of the most effective ways to increase a building’s physical security without creating an overly institutionalized aesthetic is by leveraging architectural elements to create secure environments. IMEG has a CPTED professional, certified by the National Institute of Crime Prevention, who works in tandem with our design engineers to deliver these strategies, which include natural surveillance, territorial boundaries, security lighting, and community engagement programs.
* Vulnerability Assessment & Gap Analysis
Comprehensive threat and vulnerability assessments are essential to securing your organization and guarding the health and welfare of staff, patients, students, visitors, and the community. IMEG’s project approach looks at the client’s physical environment and human element along with the role of technology. Effective security and preparedness starts with a clear understanding of your vulnerabilities and gaps. No matter the focus of your assessment, we apply a system that helps us identify and mitigate overall exposure.
* Tabletop exercises, Drills, and Rehearsals
Tabletop exercises help address the identified gaps and test your organizational structure and response. Situational drills and rehearsals are also a very important part of a cohesive defense response. We must condition our minds and bodies for a stress response, otherwise they won’t respond properly. Mitigating the greatest loss of life is the main goal in any emergency response. Drills and rehearsals are a vital aspect of the overall training and plan development.
* Emergency Action Plan (EAP) and Policy and Procedure (SOP)
When a situation arrives it is important to have a comprehensive plan in place, ensuring there are procedures that employees can refer to for proper responses. These plans must be specific and outline appropriate responses for the situation at hand – from medical emergencies to an active shooter situation to a health pandemic. Proper planning and resources aid in protecting your staff, patients, students, and visitors – as well as your institution or company.
