Mulligan Security Technology Earns DHS Anti-terrorism Designation
Mulligan Security, a New York City-based provider of security services, has announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has designated its security services as a “Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology” (QATT) under the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002 (the “SAFETY Act
This technology includes physical security services that deter, prevent, detect, alert and respond to a variety of security threats and the processes used to recruit, hire, train, and manage the qualified personnel who perform the services.
"We are honored to receive SAFETY Act designation for our security services,” said Kevin Mulligan, executive vice president. “The Department of Homeland Security has recognized that our security program is effective in combating the threat of terrorism. The coverage provided by this program will allow us to continue innovating and expanding our anti-terrorism security services to better protect clients who know all too well that the threat of terrorism is real.”
The SAFETY Act was written to ensure that the threat of litigation and liability does not deter producers of anti-terrorism products and/or services from developing and commercializing technologies that could save lives. The act creates certain liability limitations for producers of QATTs and their customers for claims arising from acts of terrorism where the designated technologies have been deployed.
The SAFETY Act designation requires an extensive application and evaluation by DHS. Mulligan is the first regional security company in the New York area to receive this qualification, according to the company's press release.
Founded almost two decades ago, Mulligan provides its security services to prime high-rise commercial buildings, major corporate facilities and adjacent critical infrastructure in New York City and surrounding areas. These services include the provision of unarmed security officers who are also specially trained as fire guards, fire safety directors and/or managers and emergency action plan directors.
