Terrorism at the top of the list of threats according to Swiss Federal Council report

While the coronavirus demonstrates the vulnerability of an interconnected world, the main risks for Swiss security remained the same in 2019. The worsening of the terrorist threat still tops the list in the annual report published by the Federal Council according to RTS. Further information

One of these threats is of course the crazy car or truck driven to carry out an attack on innocent people during public demonstrations or sporting events. BAAVA barriers are an adequate and efficient response in a security plan. With their mobility, it is possible to quickly implement effective protection.


Course de l'Escalade 2019

BAAVA barriers to protect the famous run "Course de l'Escalade" in Geneva

As a sporting and popular run, this race brings together an impressive number of runners every first weekend in December. There were more than 42,000 of them this year, placing the event by far at the top of the Swiss hiking race rankings and among the most important in Europe.


Counter-terrorism exercise of the Public Prosecutor's Office

The BAAVA barriers were chosen during the anti-terrorist exercise that took place on 11 December at the Public Prosecutor's Office in Geneva.

Our ram vehicle barriers were used to protect the entire site. Their mobility and modularity were praised by the organization as well as the security company in charge.

Official photos will follow.


Estivale Open Air 2019

We would like to warmly thank the Security company in charge of the Estavayer-le-Lac Open Air Festival for renting our BAAVA 156VL barriers to secure access to the site.

The mobility of the barriers has been very useful in facilitating the receipt of goods while maintaining a high level of safety.

We look forward to repeating this experience next year and at other festivals!


National Day in Chêne-Bougeries

The municipal police of Chêne-Bougeries trusted us by using the BAAVA 156VL rental barriers to secure the festivities for the national holiday of August 1st.

About ten police officers were trained in the assembly and dismantling of the barriers to enable them to be rented with moderate blows for the next use.

The red and white colours of the fences are beautifully blended into the background with our nearby Swiss flag.

We are looking forward to repeat this experience with the other counties of "Les 3 Chênes".

 


Fête des Vignerons 2019

We are proud to contribute to the security of the 2019 Winegrowers' Day (Fête des Vignerons) with the use of BAAVA 1800PL barriers in multiple colours:

  • yellow barriers: acquisition of more than 150 modules by the Cantonal Police of Vaud
  • red/white barriers: rental park managed by the Practeo Group (baava.ch)

The equipment is put to the test during this major event. Its mobility is one of the strong points for filtering vehicle passages that must have access to the arena site. The reception of the public on site is excellent. The feeling of security provided is real and welcome.
