“One who knows the enemy and knows himself will not be endangered in a hundred engagements. One who does not know the enemy but knows himself will sometimes be victorious. Sometimes meet with defeat. One who knows neither the enemy nor himself will invariably be defeated in every engagement.” — Sun Tzu
E. G. Weiss & Associates is capable of deploying it's Red Team, our Tactical Operations Response Unit or our security specialists on a moment’s notice.
These teams are comprised of highly qualified personnel with a variety of subject matter expertise. Whether a deployment is to Puerto Rico in the wake of a hurricane or to a special event for security or law enforcement support, theses teams train throughout the year when not deployed and are ready to go where you need them to go. Each team brings not only specialized skill sets, but the full EGW arsenal of response and protection equipment .
EGW’s original team began as a large disaster response team over one decade ago. As the needs of local responders and agencies changed, the teams changed as well in order to fill the gaps within existing systems.
In 2013, the team, once a crowd of disaster volunteers, was trimmed to a team of experienced specialists that could tactically assist in a wide array of events and scenarios adding skills and knowledge to agencies dealing with the very worst of both man-made and natural disasters.
Now, since mid-2015, the team has been re-born into two tactical operations units with not only the capability of assisting in worst-case scenarios, but in creating real-life training exercises and offering in-depth planning and training services to both the private and public sector markets.
The EGW teams are available to respond and provide aid and specialized equipment to man-made and natural disasters including civil unrest, dynamic threats, cascading events and even large scale attacks or evacuations.
The teams also provide services for what we call “peacetime” events such as large festivals, marathons, gatherings, conferences, rallies, races and more. During these events the team often provides services such as on-site meteorology and severe weather tracking, scene lighting, logistical support and planning, traffic control and much more.
USING OUR TEAMS TO PLAN AND TEST
We specialize in assisting you with your planning, but also in testing that plan. How do you anticipate the unthinkable? Hire a group of experienced specialists to find your plans vulnerabilities! Our teams were designed for this purpose and have countless years of experience alongside a deep understanding of many different industries and can effectively test your plans or systems either in simple workshop/table-top mode or in full-blown field exercise.
We can assist in identifying, mitigating and managing risks in a myriad of ways whether you are a small agency or a large corporation.
For years these special units have been just that; SPECIAL. We are a unique gathering of personnel, equipment and experience designed to deploy to today's challenges.
THE EGW TACTICAL OPERATIONS RESPONSE UNIT
With a core team of experienced response specialists able to deploy on a moments notice, our team is unique, qualified and equipped to assist you in meeting your incident management challenges.
The Tactical Operations Response Unit was not designed to duplicate what is already available, but rather was created to fill those “gaps” in response we have discovered over the years.
Aside from bringing over 200 years of combined experience to the table, this unit comes with specialty equipment as we harness R&D relationships with companies such as Patriam Shield, Western Shelter, Integrity Medical Solutions, ET-Lights, LumeCube, Westcot, Synergistic Solutions, FoxFury Lighting Solutions, Iron Guard, Rapid Roll, YYuneec, Binder Lifts, StatPak, Body Sealer, SRN and many more.
While we do not have the extensive fleet some response services manage, we are a tactical, extremely mobile team of professionals that can responsibly take on the tasks that often are overlooked or hard to manage. Our team works well in concert with multiple agencies or on their own assigned to a single task.
With on-staff meteorologists, our teams monitor severe weather situations around the country often-times deploying before an event at the request of our clientele.
Have a “peacetime” deployment such as a large marathon, festival, rally or something unique and challenging? Call our offices today to see how we have successfully supported agencies around the country during these special events!
