On July 7, 2020, Mr. Sitto responded to a distress call from a customer in the Mall parking lot, stating that they had observed a newborn infant locked inside a vehicle. Mr. Sitto immediately responded to the scene. Troy Police were called, but due to the extreme heat, Mr. Sitto decided to break the window to open the vehicle. Supervisor Sitto's professional and calm assessment of the immediate danger, and his quick reaction to extract the infant from the car, resulted in saving a young life. Prudential Security Management, Mall Management, and your peers are grateful for your quick actions. Congratulations on receiving this prestigious award, and Thank you for a job well done.

Prudential Security Above and Beyond Award is Prudential Security Officer Michael Lopez

Today we recognize Site Supervisor Michael Lopez for going above and beyond his security responsibilities to assist an injured client employee. One of the client managers had an accident and endured a deep cut to the top of her foot. She didn't notice her injury until she saw blood pooling in her shoe. This manager happened to be in the lobby and asked Mike if she could have a Kleenex for her little cut. Mike quickly assessed the foot's damage as being more than "just a little cut," and he grabbed the first aid kit, cleaned the area, and wrapped it all up with gauze and a bandage wrap. The manager felt terrible that she had to bother Mike to assist with the "little cut" but was very appreciative. Mike went above and beyond to help her in her clumsiness (her words). Thank you, Mike, for your quick reaction and assessment of the injury. You definitely went above and beyond to ensure her safety.

Prudential Security is Pleased to Announce Abe Al-Busaid Has Earned the Valor Above and Beyond the Call of Duty Award For May, 2020
Since hiring Abe Al-Busaid this past January, things have drastically changed in our country with the onset of COVID-19. Abe has taken the security role he was originally tasked with, and morphed his responsibilities to not only execute and improve the security program for client property and personnel but has also taken on the extensive project of managing the new health screening procedures for all staff entering the client facility, all while ensuring they are meeting the recommendations of Oakland County. The extra time it takes to complete 200 health screenings a day has increased Abe’s workload. To ensure the security program reporting and communications are handled accurately and timely, Abe will leave the facility at the end of his scheduled shift, and continue his workday from home. Abe brings a level of professionalism to our client that has surpassed expectations for the security program. Abe’s willingness and attentiveness to detail and accuracy of the new health screening procedures and the security program responsibilities have shown us that Abe has a sense of duty, responsibility, and professionalism always to ensure the job gets done! Congratulations on going Above and Beyond Abe!

GROSSE POINT WOODS (WXYZ) — A metro Detroit family is reeling after two devastating losses six hours apart.
David Fowler, 76, and his son, Gary, 56, both died due to complications from the coronavirus, according to Gary's daughter Paris McCray.
McCray said her grandfather, David, died on April 6 and her father on April 7 in his Grosse Pointe Woods home.
"He was in his recliner... that's where we found his body," McCray said. She added that her mother was asleep in the bed next to the chair when he passed.
"My father was a great man," Ross Fowler said. "He was well-loved."
McCray claims three metro Detroit hospitals declined her father COVID-19 testing and treatment. Her grandfather never went to a hospital to be tested before dying.
"If (my father) could of gotten admitted to any hospital and gotten the proper treatment and proper care, he would still be here," McCray said.
Since then, she said three family members have tested positive for the new virus, including their mother, she was rushed back to the hospital on Tuesday due to complications from the virus.
McCray believes the system failed her father. They want others to avoid the heartbreak they've endured.
"Get [tested]! Because we couldn't, we were denied," McCray said.
7 Action News reached out to Beaumont, Detroit Receiving, and Henry Ford hospitals where McCray said they went to get her father help.

To Our Valued Customers Concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak
There is no higher priority to our entire Prudential Security Family than the safety of our customers and employees. We are in contact with medical professionals and are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website, the World Health Organization (WHO) website, and government agency websites to stay on top of this evolving situation. We are making sure that our employees are practicing the proper steps as outlined by the CDC to protect themselvs from both contracting or spreading the virus, with a strict rule to stay home from duty if displaying any cold or flu symptoms.
We want you to feel confident while Prudential Security protects your establishment. As the concern continues to grow for the Coronavirus, we want you all to rest assured that we always take the necessary precautions to establish cleaning and sanitizing practices throughout each business day. Our guards and staff clean and sanitize all surfaces, door handles, work stations, computers, etc., that they come in contact with. As always, we are committed to upholding the highest standard of cleanliness by continuing to work closely with Ecolab, a global leader in cleaning products. Ecolab has shared best practices and the latest products that may be useful to combat the spread of COVID-19. As we continue to monitor developments and navigate through these challenging circumstances, we want you to know that you can rely on us always to put your health and safety first.
How long can the virus last on surfaces? Current evidence suggests that coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials.
How is the virus transmitted? Transmission of the virus occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets than through clothes, utensils, or furniture.
What can we all do to prevent the spread of illness? Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact with people who are sick, or those who you may suspect are sick due to coughing or sneezing. Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash, then immediately wash your face and hands with soap or sanitizer. Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
