A supplier for the United States Park Police, Federal Resources delivered equipment for the Veterans Day event and trained event staff, Park Police, and other law enforcement agencies on equipment usage and safety. Equipment training also included solving technical issues and answering questions to ensure a safe event for thousands of concert attendees.
“Federal Resources is proud to supply the training and equipment needed by our nation’s military, law enforcement, and first responders,” said Robert McWilliams, Federal Resources’ Chief Executive Officer. “We are especially honored to have provided support for an event such as the Veterans Day Concert for Valor recognizing our country’s brave military personnel.”
Equipment provided by Federal Resources included detection and monitoring devices by Thermo Fisher, Smiths Detection, Flir, and Bruker, as well as shelters by FORTS and lighting by Airstar. Federal Resources instructors trained law enforcement personnel and event staff from the United States Park Police, United States Secret Service, Virginia State Police, and the Alexandria, Virginia Sheriff’s Office.
Sponsored by HBO, Starbucks, and Chase, the Concert for Valor was a first-of-its-kind Veterans Day event. The free, three-hour concert was broadcast to over 30 million homes across the United States.
