Energy & Utilities
A Better Choice for Protecting America’s Energy Future

Protection 1 is an acknowledged leader when it comes to delivering business security solutions to the energy industry—gas and oil, power and utility, and alternative energy companies. We provide seamless protection to help safeguard American energy facilities, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, refineries, power plants and utilities. A high level of protection is crucial to protecting our homeland and controlling our nation’s energy future.

We understand the risks you face and the important role that energy plays—energy efficiency is a priority when it comes to promoting resource sustainability and ensuring economic stability. Since the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued the Chemical Facilities Anti-Terrorism Standards in 2007, facilities involved in the manufacturing, storage and distribution of high risk chemicals have been working to understand the full scope of these requirements—along with the steps necessary for compliance. Protection 1 is well aware of CFATS regulations and has experience implementing large-scale security projects in the energy sector.
