Skyguard were privileged to be featured on the BBC 6 o’clock national news on Wednesday 7th September 2011 as part of a counter terror item from distinguished BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner OBE.
The BBC’s flagship news programme, typically broadcast to over 4 million viewers, briefly showcased our Incident Management Centre, The MySOS – the UK’s smallest personal safety device and how our service worked in the event of a kidnapping or assault.
Frank and his BBC crew were warmly welcomed by all and took a genuine interest in how Skyguard can aid those who find themselves in trouble. Frank and his team were particularly impressed at how our controllers track the device via GPS whilst keeping the Police informed at all times.
Referring to a kidnap situation, Frank Gardner summed up part of Skyguard’s service simply but effectively. “The alarm gets raised, the client gets tracked and the police are alerted.”
