Keeping your site in safe hands

At EMS Security Services we can provide trained keyholding and response officers to protect your assets. As well as attending the site, we will locate the cause of the activation, ensure that the premises is secure, and preserve any potential evidence should a break-in be discovered. Inspections and reports are carried out and findings will be reported to our clients.

Our well-maintained response vehicles are fit for purpose and carry a 2-way communication device and tracker. A 24-hour control room means we can respond to any activation within prescribed timescales. We take great care with your keys from formal receipt until the end of the contract.


Your keys are held securely both on the premises and during transportation. All key movements are logged and regular key audits undertaken.
