What Kind of Prevention tools have you put into place in your home? TEST YOURSELF: Ask yourself , Do I have adequate crime deterrents such as visible signs, fences, stickers, dog(s), cameras, rose bushes near windows, & Lighting & Locks? 2 – Detect  –  Whether you are home or not, you should be able to DETECT when something is not right in any of the 3 areas of (1) Security (2) LifeSafety or (3) Environmental hazard. TEST YOURSELF: Do I have Motion Sensors, Cameras, Glass Break Detectors, Doorbell Camera & / or peephole. I have Smoke, Heat, Freeze, Carbon Monoxide & Flood Level Detectors to detect possible threats to My Safety, My Property or My Loved Ones? 3 – Alert  –  Once your detection devices have picked up something, YOU &/or the POLICE, FIRE, EMT or Loved Ones need to be alerted to the activity for appropriate response. TEST YOURSELF: My detection system is setup to ALERT ME & / or 1st Responders via Text, Email, Phone &/or Siren that something isn’t right. I have ALARM(s) on my Home, Business, Automobile(s) & Someone is Patrolling my neighborhood / Storage Facilities? 4 – Defend  –  Your Life, Your Family, Your Property. Whether or not you choose to exercise your 2nd Amendment rights, OnGuard Security Solutions wants to make absolute sure that you have every possible tool & training at your disposal to defend your life, your family, and your property should someone pose a threat to your security. Once a Criminal has not been deterred by signs and fences and doesn’t care that you have detected him with your alarm sensors or even that you or the police have been alerted and they proceed to attack you or your loved ones, there is only 1 rule … survival. Criminals don’t play by the rules, so neither should you* when defending yourself against an attacker. There are no referees going to blow a whistle or call a timeout, you don’t get any do overs or get to hit a reset button. *(Obviously you need to know the law in your area when it comes to use of a weapon or lethal force, and we are not attorney’s, but I would rather be tried by 12 then carried by six). When it comes to Self Defense – There are 3 Keys (1) MINDSET: you must be able to have the right mindset, to be able to “go there” and exercise an opposing force of violence to disable your attacker and then get away. (2) TOOLS: you must have the right tools at your disposal, such as a firearm or other improvised weapon(s). A Safe Room with Life Saving tools is recommended. (3) TRAINING: Whether it’s Hand to Hand techniques without a weapon or against weapons, or deploying your handgun, shotgun, or rifle … All of those things are “perishable skills” and need to be honed on a regular basis.To that end, OnGuard Security Solutions has partnered with a network of trainers and professional training organizations such as Commando Krav Maga & Others at the highest level to bring our clients a COMPLIMENTARY HOME INVASION TRAINING COURSE every (2) months for your entire household … OR … for our commercial clients, a COMPLIMENTARY Safety & Security Audit and Light work place violence Scenario Training. Additional In Depth Classes & Training are available & OnGuard Clients will receive discounts off additional training if desired. TEST YOURSELF: I have a PLAN & PRACTICE regularly to Defend my life &/or property. I have a Safe Room & Self Defense training against Various Weapons & Attackers. I have Weapons & I know how to safely & legally deploy if needed. My Lawyer is on speed dial. 5 – CAPTURE  –  Whether it’s VIDEO EVIDENCE to assist and aid the police or your cooperation with them, Once Captured, the bad guys will need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Having clear high resolution images and video of the criminals in the act will help ensure that once captured, they won’t get away with it and hopefully never do that again. TEST YOURSELF: I have a high quality Video Surveillance system that will capture even when I am not home. I will utilize & cooperate with my local police & prosecutor. I am even willing to Hire a private Investigator. I may also have a VIDEO ALARM system which is monitored by a 3rd Party company who may also dispatch law enforcement if unauthorized activity is detected.  Am I sure that my system meets the Standards for “Eye Witness Account” image quality as stated by the Courts of Law?  All of OnGuard Security Solutions Camera & Surveillance Systems do. 6 – RESTORE  –  There are many different kinds of impact that a Safety & / or Security incident can bring, make sure you have the plan and the resources to deal with the following areas. 

  • The loss or damage of property
  • The Loss of Ability to Work for short or long periods of time (savings & / or Disability Insurance).
  • The Loss of a Life (Life Insurance, Will, Trust, Burial Plans

There are multiple things you can do to protect yourself financially against loss. Those losses may come as a result of injury, loss of work, loss of possessions, loss of savings or identity. Having proper plans and professionals in place to prevent & restore you after an incident occurs will be invaluable.
