Superb seaside security

Careful planning meant the event ran without a hitch

It was all good: sea, sand, sunshine – plus sponsors, 1000 spectators and 2000 people hoping to hook the ‘big one’.  The annual Beach & Boat Fishing Competition, held in Ruakaka, Whangarei, is big news on the local event calendar.

Armourguard provided round the clock guard services for the three-day event, which featured fishing during the day and prize giving and entertainment at night. Our services included:

  • Ticket checking
  • Crowd management and dispersion
  • Assisting with identifying intoxicated/underage persons and removing them safely from the venue
  • Keeping the venue, vehicles, boat, trailers and equipment secure
  • Assisting with parking management
  • Evacuation and other safety precautions.

The event presents many security challenges due to its varied requirements, and because the combination of alcohol and thousands of people can potentially lead to trouble. Careful planning meant the event ran without a hitch. All of our key security managers receive formal comprehensive training in event security planning and organisation, ensuring that potential issues are anticipated and resolved long before they can cause problems.

Ensuring large and complex events run super smoothly is simply part of the job – a job we’re proud to do every day and every night.

The client Lessa Quann commented "I have long struggled to find a security firm that had the right skills to handle the many different aspects of the Carters Beach & Boat Fishing Competition event. I am thrilled to say Armourguard fulfilled all my requirements and exceeded expectations when delivering a range of security services for us."

We take great pride in our professional approach to all matters and I view our security services partner as an extension of ourselves. Your Whangarei branch team were thoroughly professional at all times during the event; I have never received so much positive feedback from entrants and sponsors in relation to any other security firm we have used in the past. I very much look forward to working Armourguard Whangarei again.
