Solutions with a demonstrated ability to protect lives

"I am thoroughly impressed with the proactive approach to public safety that the Carlsbad Police Department has displayed for this event.," said Schanzenbach. "It is no longer enough to set out cones, fencing or water barriers that have no capacity to stop vehicle encroachment. We need a solution that is built for the problem and has demonstrated the ability to protect lives. I couldn’t be happier with the Carlsbad Police Department’s selection of The MERIDIAN products."

MERIDIAN’s Archer 1200 Barriers have seen recent use for large-scale SEAR (Special Events Assessment Rating) Level 1 events like the Tournament of Roses Parade and Game as well as Super Bowl LIII. The product, as well as MERIDIAN’s deployment training, was awarded SAFETY Act designation this year. The Congressional Act, established in the wake of 9/11, specifies Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies (QATTs) which receive liability protections in the event of a terrorist attack. MERIDIAN, as well as its customers, receive the protection from claims.

"Our business is simple," said MERIDIAN CEO Peter Whitford. "We make people, communities and places safer. We are thrilled to be working with the Carlsbad Chamber and the city of Carlsbad to ensure that this hallmark event is a success – that begins with the right equipment and the right plan of action."
