Midsumma Pride March is a signature celebration of pride and diversity to march for those who cannot. The 26th annual Pride March took place on the 23rd of May 2021 where 7000+ marchers took to Fitzroy Street in St Kilda Melbourne. Thousands of people lined the cafes and balconies along Fitzroy Street to show their support.

AML Risk Management was proudly involved in the event and supplied Archer 1200 Barriers to secure the venue location, which closed off roads in St Kilda around the Pride March route.

The Archer 1200 barriers were used as part of the vehicle mitigation plan to secure the site perimeters, deployed with quick release certified arrestor cables to allow access to emergency vehicles and the march floats. AML Risk Management staff deployed 99 Archer 1200 Barriers in under 45 minutes to secure the perimeters of the event and also reopened the roads at the conclusion of the event in the same time.

The Archer 1200 Barriers worked to protect the marchers, event staff and bystanders from errant and hostile vehicles to allow for a safe and successful event.

We would like to thank all parties who were involved in the event operations which contributed to the success of the event.

ANZAC Day Dawn Service

ANZAC Day is when we come together to commemorate the soldiers of our nation killed in war and to honour the returned and serving servicemen and women.

AML Risk Management was honoured to be a part of the ANZAC Day Dawn Service held in Mount Maunganui in New Zealand. The Archer 1200 barriers were deployed to secure the area where the memorial was held.

Furthermore, due to the snap lockdown which led to the cancellation of the ANZAC Day Dawn Service and Parade in Perth, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the servicemen and women in Perth as well as commemorate the fallen ones during the war. It was unfortunate that we were not able to proceed with our part in the memorial due to the unfortunate lockdown, however, we were set to protect then and will be set to protect in the future.

New Zealand 36th America’s Cup

New Zealand has proudly hosted their 36th America’s Cup in Auckland as well as the Prada Cup Challenger Selection Series.

AML Risk Management has supplied the event host with the Archer 1200 Mobile Barriers as a safety precaution to safeguard the event location from the risk of errant or hostile vehicles.

The Archer 1200 barriers were installed at the highest risk point of the location which became the most robust hostile vehicle mitigation method installed to date in New Zealand.

The Archer 1200 barriers has provided proportionate security measures as a part of the city-wide security plan. Not only has it been safeguarding the community it has also provided the crowd and traffic management the benefit of increased safety and control of both crowd and automobile traffic within the area.
