Santiago Executive Protection & Crisis Risk Management
ETS was tasked with providing Executive protection for seven Senior Executives in addition to event security for 120 employees in Santiago, Chile. ETS utilized its trusted local supplier of secure ground transportation to provide a range of executive vehicles and English speaking security drivers. An ETS senior security manager and risk management specialist traveled to Santiago 48 hours prior to the executives arriving to conduct a detailed advance reconnaissance of all locations, liaise with event staff, local law enforcement and associated venues. During the stay an 8.3-magnitude earthquake occurred causing significant issues at the location.
Our ETS security manager provided on-the-ground crisis risk management support and directed the response to the emerging situation from our 24/7 ETS operations room. Using our system of protocols and checks we were able to quickly account for all of the client’s personnel. We kept their head office notified at all time throughout the incident enabling them to pass information in an accurate and timely fashion to their next of kin as well as other concerned parties. All staff were kept safe throughout and able to still complete their core business objectives and return home without delay or incident.
