IN A HOSTILE OR CHALLENGING WORKING ENVIRONMENT, YOU NEED TO KNOW THERE IS A SUPPORT STRUCTURE BEHIND YOUR EVERY MOVE.
A hostile environment can take many forms and will pose an array of challenges for you or your employees to work there. It will normally mean that there exists a medium to high threat of a terrorist attack, car bombing, suicide attack or ambush. The risk of kidnap is often at an extremely high level in a hostile area as well as the constant problems associated with local criminality.
Ark provide a full range of protective services from hostile protection teams to vehicle escorts. All operations require meticulous planning with constant updating of procedures, gathering of intelligence and training for both clients and our protection teams.
A hostile environment or area does not always mean a client being driven around in armoured vehicles, wearing body armour and having an eight man armed protection team. Indeed for some clients travelling to certain areas of Europe could be regarded as hostile. At Ark we prefer the term challenging environments, that with the correct planning and preparation will become a day to day working environment for corporations and their employees to successfully conduct their business activities.
