Corporate Emergency Access System (CEAS) is America’s Credentialing Standard for Emergency Access
How Well-Prepared Communities Recover From Disasters
The Corporate Emergency Access System (CEAS) is a turnkey pre-event credentialing program, provided at no cost to governments, that allows critical business employees to travel through or gain access to restricted areas following a disaster or serious emergency. Credentialing is done through the use of a common identification card recognized by law enforcement and emergency management officials.
With disasters in the news seemingly on a daily basis, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has placed a great deal of emphasis on critical infrastructure protection and whole community preparedness. The private sector is responsible for operating and maintaining the vast majority of the critical infrastructure that helps our communities function, such as power, fuel, water, money, food, medication and jobs.
Our Mission is to help restore normalcy to communities impacted by disaster by removing obstacles to travel and access that impede the recovery of businesses and the flow of vital supplies, goods and services into these communities.
