Frank – Just writing to let you know that we really appreciate the very thorough and professional job done by Global in preparing our Fire Safety Plan. On a personal note, my thanks for all the time you took to answer the many questions I had, some even dealing with matters not directly related to the Plan.
To whom it may concern,
New York City has hundreds of security training schools which are available to the general public. But what is not known that the best kept secret is “Global Security Group Inc.” This company not only covers all aspects within their curriculum but provides hands on and visual training to assure all students absorb all necessary details to advance to better careers. The instructors are highly qualified and certified with years of on the job experience. Their individual one on one training with students, separates them from all regular security training schools. As a Director of Security working with Global Security Group Inc. has been a tremendous experience which I highly recommend.
It’s hard for me to overstate how much Global Security Group helped us through FSD training. They are a company that I’d be happy to do business with again.

The Kimberly have acquired the services of Global Security Group, Inc. to complete our Fire Safety and Evacuation Plans which have proven to be a task in the past, but putting these plans in the hands of knowledgeable professionals at Global have given me the assurance that the plans are not only being done right, but being done right the first time.

I can not thank Global Security Group enough for all their help. I had worked individually with Frank Papalia, Lieut FDNY (ret.) on several issues and we have been impressed by his broad knowledge base, years of experience, familiarity of FDNY regulations and promptness of fire safety services. Frank is also a delight to work with and I would highly recommend GSG for your fire safety needs.

It is my pleasure to recommend Global Security Group as an excellent teaching facility for anyone interested in entering the field of building safety. They believe in their mission, in that they don’t cut corners. When you complete their courses, you are well versed in the material you need to know to pursue your career in fire safety,emergency action planning, standpipes and sprinklers, etc. Their teaching staff is comprised of seasoned veterans, many of whom are former members of the New York City Fire Department. They have been there, they have done it, and they have done it successfully.
We have hired Global Security Group to write the fire safety plans for three of our hotels. Frank Papalia has been great to work with. He is responsive, thorough & is excellent at following up. Frank does what he says he will do, when he says he will do it. Not many people can say that! We have also sent people to his FSD training course. We believe his model of 5 consecutive half days, combined with his teaching approach, ensures a higher success rate that having students take the course once per week over several weeks. We would not hesitate to recommend or use them in the future.

I want to thank you for the excellent work you did to get the hotel’s Fire Safety Plan accepted. I can’t begin to tell you how difficult it was when we attempted to do it ourselves. Your coordination with FDNY’s Bureau of Fire Prevention and the hotel’s architect was done efficiently. Your experience with FDNY guided the plan effortlessly and successfully. Also, the price was very cost effective for the hotel. I would highly recommend you to hotels that need these types of services.
Again, Thank you!

After years (yes years) of frustration trying to get my Fire Safety Plan approved, I decided to give Global Security a chance to complete my plan. It was a very good decision. Through it all Frank Papalia was always there to help us with all of the red tape that the FDNY put us through. They finally got our Plan approved. We sent our staff to their school for the fire safety director’s course. At Global Security they did an outstanding job preparing them for testing certification.

Global Security Group was hired to expedite our Fire Safety Plan re submission. The main reason for the job awarded to Global Security Group is the wealth of knowledge and experience demonstrated by Frank Papalia. Throughout the process of re filing Frank was able to expertly guide us thereby prevented the famously rejection redo letters from FDNY. Although the process was lengthy we did receive approval on our second submission which Frank had anticipated at least one rejection. All in all it was a pleasure to have worked with Frank on this project.
