U.S. Security Associates Security Officer Braves Irma Without Relief

Our company’s resilience in the face of catastrophic disaster response is outstanding and credit goes to both Larry and Eric for steering our Florida and Texas teams through these horrific storms.

U.S. Security Associates, the market-leading and wholly-owned North American security solutions provider, maintained services in the face of Hurricane Irma. Security Officer Harold Russell braved the worst of Hurricane Irma for two days alone on duty.
