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.

During times of crisis, businesses and governments rely on employees, contractors, and people with special skills who perform specific functions to help maintain critical operations. When these kinds of essential personnel are prevented from traveling to and accessing their facilities, a domino effect occurs which can cause recovery to grind to a halt. What is often lacking is an effective access control policy and process to help these essential employees and contractors perform their duties.  

Our Mission

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.

Our Goals

To provide a world class, cutting edge post-event access control solution that promotes business recovery. This is accomplished by assisting the private-sector essential employees with access into restricted areas for the purpose of mitigating damage and loss resulting from a disaster or emergency.
