About Us

The goal of the security / emergency assessment is to evaluate the security technologies, policies and procedures, emergency response plans, training and awareness, landscaping, lighting, etc. As a part of the assessment, interviews should be conducted with faculty, administrators, professors, teachers, employees, students, area business owners, law enforcement, fire department leaders, emergency management agencies, and area security professionals.

Most Protection Specialists understand that the cornerstone of an effective Executive Protection Program is the Security Assessment (AKA – The Advance).

It’s every parent’s worst nightmare – “Report of shots fired at XYZ School. Several students injured.” Those parents that have children at the school are mortified, unable to think clearly, all they want to do is get to their babies.

ARMADA helping Higher Education clients with Continuity of Operations Planning

ARMADA Ltd. is excited about a new opportunity to provide Continuity of Operations planning, training and support for a Higher Education Client.

The development of viable Continuity of Operations Plans is a vital step that organizations must take in order to continue providing essential services that their clientele rely upon. 


Cincinnati Metro

Having not exercised our security plan for many years, there was great hesitation from our organization as we started this process. I can tell you that the professional service that we received from Armada, in particular from Lee Foster was the success of our mission. 

Mr.Foster was able to custom tailor a scenario that challenged our organization without disrupting our day to day operations, and provided us with solid feedback to improve upon as we look ahead. 

We will certainly use Armada again in the future, and I would highly recommend any initiative that Lee Foster is involved in.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Barb Farr from ARMADA ltd. for the amazing assistance she has provided in the Irene Local Roads Recovery Effort.
I could not have done my job without her assistance and input – she has been invaluable!!!!

Hamilton County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

With the Hamilton County Local Emergency Planning Committee, I have had the privilege of working with Mandy on the 2012 Functional Exercise, involving the Emergency Operations Center.  This exercise was extremely complex, as it dovetailed into the larger multi-operational period Functional Exercise involving the other county Emergency Operation Centers within my region and the State Emergency Operations Center.  She did a masterful job of applying the ideas from the design team into exercise products.  She and her team were of great assistance during the implementation of the exercise as well.  I am looking forward to working with Mandy and her team in the future.
