Monterrey Security has been providing Soldier Field with security throughout the two-year, $632 million renovation project. The new facility opened Sept. 29.

Barton adds defibrillators at its guard offices
ATLANTA - Guard service company Barton Protective Services has installed automatic external defibrillator units at 31 of its branches and plans to offer AED units and training to its guard service customers.

Barton installed the units in partnership with Cardiac Science Inc., the manufacturer of the automatic external defibrillators being used. Barton is currently training 350 employees across the country on how to use the device.

According to Patrick McNulty, president of Barton, company officials believe AED units should be as common as fire extinguishers in its branches and the customers it serves.
