KGH is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We extend equal opportunity to all individuals without regard to race, religion, color, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability or any other status protected under the applicable law.
KGH believes that security sense is common sense that everyone can learn and apply, as ordinary really as fastening your seatbelt without thinking about it. It is a skillset that can be learned at a very early age and carried throughout life.
It matters first and foremost from an individual survival perspective should an ordinary day turn extraordinary. It matters from an organizational standpoint in recruiting and retaining personnel, reducing corporate liability, and protecting your brand. It matters from a community perspective to develop a shared sense of responsibility in awareness, preparedness, response, and recovery.
Our mission is to educate, engage, and empower a community with preparedness education and training from the classroom to the boardroom. We believe that preparedness is a mindset that enables individuals and organizations to take the advantage away from conditions that threaten them.
G.O.T. Preparedness® is designed to provide both online and in-person training resources for individuals and organizations to prepare for, respond to, and recover from active threat situations. KGH’s team of training, security, and preparedness experts offer a Preparedness Review approach the assist organizations in navigating the myriad of security, emergency, and safety plans, regulations, compliance, and audit requirements.
We believe that preparedness is a mindset and the foundation for resiliency at an individual and community level which requires a holistic approach, not a single-threaded tactical solution. We know that in most active threat situations it takes an average of six-eight minutes for the first responders to arrive and that time can be best used to take the advantage away from an individual seeking to do harm. Replacing fear with confidence to react without hesitation can dramatically change the outcome when an ordinary day turns into an extraordinary one without warning. See: https://gotpreparedness.com
KGH’s integrated team of experts offer a Preparedness Review that supports organizations in preventing, preparing for, and mitigating across hazards and threats. KGH guides organizations through the myriad of security, emergency, and safety plans with a comprehensive process that ensures compliance with government regulations and industry standards and requirements. The KGH team performs Preparedness Reviews through a risk-based framework that helps organizations focus on their highest risk areas and identifies gaps, or vulnerabilities, in current policies, plans, procedures, and training. The KGH team then provides recommendations (e.g. training, technology, policies) to fill the identified gaps and guides the organization in prioritizing those recommendations based on the greatest potential for risk reduction and compliance. This holistic process is tailored to meet the needs and unique conditions of each organization, which includes an awareness of operational needs and organizational culture.
