Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) has released a special report Hospitality Attacks: Tips That Could Save Lives. The feature is available free to the hospitality industry via PineappleSearch.com, HFTP’s hospitality-specific search site that was built for hospitality by hospitality. The comprehensive report prepares a hospitality property for a hostile attack, and includes a review of security assessments, staff training, response plans and active shooter response.
“With all of the global developments around public safety, HFTP saw a need for a high level document on the topic” said HFTP Global President Arlene Ramirez, CHAE, CHE, CHIA, MBA, principal at ADR Hospitality Consulting and on the faculty at the C.N. Hilton College, University of Houston. “Although public safety in hospitality is a slight departure from finance and technology education, we felt that education on this topic is critical.”
Hospitality Attacks was written by Eliza Selig, HFTP director of communications and Frank Wolfe, CAE, HFTP CEO. The report is written to counter potential dangers with preemptive response planning. It encourages organizations to implement appropriate security measures, collaborate with local authorities and train staff in proper prevention and reaction methods.
