Security Contractors in Haiti
The calls are out for qualified people to go to Haiti as security contractors, medics, escorts, and to help out in the general relief efforts. The earthquake was devastating and the security situation is worsing every day. Telephone calls and emails are being made by security contract firms looking for folks who have military or security experience - if you speak French or have been to Haiti that is a plus. News services, relief organizations, and corporations with employees and assets in Haiti are seeking protection from the dire security situation on the ground in Haiti. Some news articles are providing glimpses of the security contracting world as it relates to Haiti - see "Private Contractors to the Rescue?", The Huffington Post, January 15, 2010 or "Jobs: Static Security and Mobile Security Positions, Haiti", Feral Jundi.com, January 19, 2010. Some of the firms on the list provided at this following link provide military support, disaster relief, and security contracting services.
