Quick Reaction Force

Quick Reaction Force Afghnistan

Watan Group is able to offer clients a Quick Reaction Force (QRF). On call 24 hours through our Operations Centre, trained and ready to react to all incidents including civil unrest, the QRF is able to respond in the event of an emergency to reassure clients and if necessary evacuate them to a safe location. The use of the QRF would be closely integrated into a client's contingency and evacuation plans.

Watan's QRF will also provide critical personnel and PSD personnel with a personnel recovery capability in the event there is an attack or accident. The QRF will be responsible for coordinating with all PSDs prior to any movement of protected personnel. They will also be responsible for obtaining threat information, employ operational risk management, obtaining primary and alternate routes from the PSDs, developing a personnel recovery plan, obtaining the PSD communications plan, developing an EPA, responding to an attack, extricating personnel from vehicles, providing advanced field medical treatment, and extracting personnel to a medical facility.

Watan Operations Centre

Watan is able to integrate client communications systems into our Operations Centre in Kabul ensuring we have an overview of all client activities and provide an appropriate response in an emergency. As part of any security audit we can look closely at a client's communications systems and make recommendations as to its integration into a command and control network. Watan can also source a variety of additional communications systems appropriate to clients needs, including HF, VHF, UHF and mobile phone or satellite tracking systems.

Secure Tracking

Watan can supply GPS/alarm tracking systems on all client vehicles or provide personal devices to individuals. This enables us to track client movements and ensure a faster response in the event of an emergency, which might be anything from a security incident to a traffic accident. Clients can activate an alarm in the vehicle and prompt an appropriate response from our Operations Centre or their Security Manager.
