An Unusual Night at Shergroup | The Case of the Suspicious Noise in the Dumpster

At Shergroup USA, our commitment to maintaining safety and security extends to all areas of our clients’ properties, ensuring a secure environment day and night. One recent evening, this dedication was put to the test during an unusual incident involving a suspicious noise coming from a dumpster.

It was a typical quiet night when one of our vigilant Shergroup USA Supervisors heard an unexpected sound emanating from a nearby dumpster. The noise was persistent and unusual enough to raise concerns. To ensure the safety of the area, the supervisor took immediate action and called 911 to report the incident.

The call was made to the non-emergency line, a prudent choice to avoid unnecessary panic while still addressing the potential issue. The Orlando Fire Department (OFD) promptly responded to the scene. Upon arrival, the firefighters assessed the situation and decided to cut the chain securing the fenced area around the dumpster to gain access.

Once the area was opened, the OFD team conducted a thorough search of the dumpster. To everyone’s surprise, they discovered an active smoke detector buried within the refuse. The device had somehow been triggered, causing the noise that had initially raised alarm. The firefighters carefully removed the smoke detector and disarmed the alarm, ensuring that the disturbance was resolved.

After ensuring that there was no further threat, the firefighters placed the disarmed smoke detector back in the dumpster. With the situation under control, both the Orlando Fire Department and the Orlando Police, who had also arrived to provide support, left the site.

This incident, while seemingly minor, highlights the importance of vigilance and swift action in security operations. Our Shergroup USA Supervisor’s quick thinking and appropriate response ensured that the situation was handled efficiently and safely. It also underscores the effective collaboration between Shergroup USA and local emergency services, ensuring that any potential threats are managed with professionalism and care.

At Shergroup USA, we are proud of our team’s dedication to maintaining a secure environment. Incidents like these, though rare, remind us of the unpredictable nature of security work and the importance of being prepared for any situation.
