How do we respond to threat levels?

Threat levels help inform everyone about the incoming dangers but do not require any actions from the general public. For civilians, it serves as an alarm to prepare themselves for incoming threats.
Although, it requires the security practitioners and the police to raise their security levels to ensure more protection for sensitive areas. As a part of the security industry, Agile Guarding keeps on checking the current threat levels to utilize the best security measures for our clients. At the same time, we are firm believers in taking precautions and ensuring we offer maximum security all the time, regardless of the current threat levels in the UK.
