(DALLAS, TX) In response to the mass shooting at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school in December, The Consumer Team talk radio program will feature special segments addressing the issues surrounding the security of schools, churches, hospitals and malls. On January 5, 2013 from 5-7PM 1080 KRLD Radio Dallas, The Consumer Team will air the first in the series of interviews. Featured in the interview will be Jacob Savoie and Dave Jones from Enterprise Security Solutions of Texas (ESST). Pete Thomson, executive producer and host of The Consumer Team, commented on the interview. He stated, “Since the tragic shootings of December, many business leaders have been reassessing their own security systems and their ability to protect their employees, customers, students and patients. The team from ESST are leaders in their field and will bring a very timely and valuable conversation to the airwaves of The Consumer Team on KRLD.”
ESST specializes in electronic security systems including the latest innovations in surveillance systems and other technology. Their clients include The Gaylord Texan, Denton Regional Hospital, Crowley ISD and CIGNA Healthcare. Their management has extensive experience in security, personal protection and law enforcement including The FBI. According to Thomson, “After the tragic shooting in Connecticut, we focused on finding the company that provided security to the leaders in business and education. The client list of ESST is very impressive. This company is one of the best in the US.”
Thomson added that the current state of security in school systems is not strong. While some schools have enhanced their systems over the last several years, he says there are still significant problems. Thomson added, “You can’t just put up a few cameras with a monitor in the front office and consider a school secure. One of the primary goals of security enhancement has to be an earlier recognition of a problem in addition to stronger systems of security enforcement and response under duress. Simply put, based on the information we have, it’s clear that our schools are not well protected.”
According to Thomson, The Consumer Team security segments will be valuable to not only educators but also anyone who needs to protect a customer or employee. “We’ll be talking about best practices for security that can be utilized in schools, businesses, churches and any other public place. We’ll also address the biggest security and protection mistakes that companies make every day.”
