To preserve, protect and prevent is Security 101's motto
HE HAS 20 years' security experience and his new company is ready to serve the Fraser Coast.
Peter Horwath, who is also known as Big Mick, is the manager of Security 101, whose motto is to preserve, protect and prevent.
He's provided security at a wide range of events, including Schoolies, Big Day Out and at Suncorp Stadium.
Peter has also worked as a body guard for VIP clients at the Hilton in Brisbane and says it's important people know who they are dealing with when using a security firm.
"We are the only independent firm in town who provides everything."
Peter said that he along with 20 others were terminated from a local company, so decided a new security company on the Fraser Coast was needed.
"Monopolies aren't good for anyone," he said.
"We are individuals who believe pride of work and pride of place is the best approach."
Peter said his staff are mostly older, with life experience.
"With the number who are ex-service or police background, we believe this will enable us to deliver the accuracy and disciplines to business," he said. "With 10 years direct plus 10 years indirectly involved in the security business you can rest assured your business will be safe with us."
Peter said things were going well for Security 101.
"Every week we are picking up more jobs," he said.
"What more can you ask for?"
His company provide a Grade A1 alarm monitor, which means the client remains monitored during blackouts, bushfires or other extreme events.
"In our modern day of increased unrest, security of your business has never been more important," he said.
"Our team of personnel have been securing business properties for many years,
"We aim to be familiar and personal with the requirements you deem necessary to satisfy your security needs."
Peter said it is important small businesses are aware of criminal activity.
"We believe in the need to be aware of potential risks and monitor these to make practical decisions to ensure appropriate outcomes."
