What others say about us

Thanks again for all of the weather support this weekend for the Burning River Festival. The support from your staff helped us keep the patrons safe as a storm came through Saturday night. The police I was working with were impressed and confident that we were making the best decisions based on accurate information. The event paused while we sheltered in place, and then quickly resumed the event minutes after the line had passed.

A big thank you to Brandon for providing excellent support tonight during our Singapore Corporate Challenge race. It was a challenging weather night for our race and he was key in our decision to abbreviate the race distance as lightning strikes moved within 3-4 miles of our location. The written reports sent during the evening were perfect for communicating the reason for the change. We never like having to interrupt our event, but having Brandon’s help made it easier.
