Recent events at Sevier County Lodging establishments have focused attention on the need for individuals and businesses to be aware, alert, and prepared for unlawful intruders and criminal predators.
Pigeon Forge Hospitality Association will hold a Security Workshop at Springhill Suites in Pigeon Forge on November 4, 2014 from 8:30am to 10:30am. Area Law Enforcement will advise on robbery deterrence measures, site security, survival techniques, importance of providing a good description of assailant, and what to do if you or your business is victimized.
Also, Bill Mish, Vision Hospitality, will speak on Human Traficking: a 32 million dollar industry based on slavery and exploitation that significantly impacts the hospitality industry and is increasing in Tennessee.
This workshop is FREE to PFHA members and is $5.00 for non-members and is open to all Sevier County businesses. Please register today for this important workshop at www.pfha-safety.eventbrite.com and be prepared to meet these issues with awareness and action.
Thank you Springhill Suites for hosting this workshop!
