Hurricane Lee warnings are indicating it may impact the Northeast, with tropical -storm-force winds (which are 39 mph or higher) pushing west to Route 495. If it tracks a little further east then those heavier winds will follow and perhaps hug the coastline of New England, according to the National Weather Service. With the potential of increasing bad weather and damaging winds, CEAS Coordinators should be mindful that all essential employee credential holders who may be required to travel for business purposes are reminded to carry their CEAS cards as a precautionary measure.
Coordinators can also authorize self-printed vehicle dashboard placards for physical cardholders by opening the “Placards” tab from the “Card Management” screen and checking the box(s) to the left of the employee(s) name, then clicking next at the bottom of the screen. On the “Send Placards Batch” screen, check the Printable Dashboard Placard, then Send. This will send an email to your employee with a printable placard that can be placed in their vehicle windshield.
The below links contain some helpful information for CEAS Coordinators and Credential Users, which provide valuable information about the CEAS program functions. Please review this information and share it with your essential employees, as necessary.
CEAS is a voluntary program and is NOT intended to place users in harm’s way. A cardholder should only travel or enter a restricted area when they can do so with reasonable safety and ONLY as directed by the appropriate company authority for business emergency purposes. Cardholders should always follow the directions of on-site law enforcement personnel.
