FORT MYERS, Fla., September 28, 2022 (Newswire.com) - As Hurricane Ian strengthened into a Category 4 storm with low-lying areas of the west coast of Florida in its trajectory, USPA Nationwide Security stands ready to deploy a complement of security contractors to provide free emergency evacuation services to women and children. "We're allocating the funds and manpower for emergency evacuations, including the cost of lodging and food for women and children who may be trapped in a flooded residence, without power and other emergency conditions while our funding and manpower last," said Daniel Manning, the firm's CEO.
USPA is no newcomer to philanthropic services, as they just recently announced a $1M yearly pledge to fund rescues of missing children. "While the money is available and our security contractors are available, we will continue to go in and evacuate, rescue and transport women and children to safety," explained Brian Fitzgibbons, USPA's Vice President.
The free evacuations are available immediately and will continue until the allotted funds have dried up. USPA has security contractors standing by in the counties of Charlotte, Citrus, Collier, Hernando, Hillsborough, Lee, Levy, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Putnam and Sarasota.
USPA provided similar services in Marsh Harbour in 2019 when Hurricane Dorian ravaged the island. Their disaster relief security division was already operating in the country when their assistance was hailed by local residents, sometimes children without parents, who were holding infants above the water line. Michael Evans, Kingsman's Executive Director, is heading to the affected areas of Florida to lead USPA's evacuation teams. Kingsman is the nonprofit wing of USPA Nationwide Security, which usually funds and performs rescues of missing women and children.
