Working as a security guard means that you will need to wear a uniform while you are on duty. But, this is not the only thing that you should have after landing a security guard job. It is best to equip yourself as soon as you start applying for jobs to make sure that you will be ready on your first day.

Reusable Bottle

Getting an insulated water bottle is a smart investment for a security guard, especially if you take up a position in which you are on your feet through most of the day. It can get rather tiring to patrol an area for eight hours straight, especially if you are not used to being this active on a regular basis. Filling up on water before you leave for work will ensure you have plenty of water to drink while on the job. It is best to get a large bottle if you know that you will not have access to more water while you are working.


In most places throughout the country, it can get quite cold at nighttime. It is best to have a heavy-duty jacket that you take with you when going to work as this will help you focus on your job. You do not want to be struggling to stay warm as a security guard who is responsible for keeping an area safe and sound.


If your job requires you to sit in a chair for most of the day, your shoes may not be much of an issue. But, walking around or at least standing on your feet all day makes it important to use good shoes. A classic black boot or shoe with great foot support will keep your feet comfortable through your whole shift. By spending a little more on shoes, they will most likely last longer and provide extra comfort.

Shopping for a few essentials is an excellent way to get ready for security guard work.
