What is CEAS

CEAS is a crisis response and recovery program, which allows private-sector employers to provide identification to their essential employees through the use of a centrally issued “CEAS credential.” This credential helps law enforcement manage the difficult task of deciding who can travel, access, and operate their business in a specific locale. The CEAS credential certifies the essential nature of the holder for access to restricted areas during a crisis.

Before businesses can enroll to certify their essential employees, a government entity must become a “CEAS Community” by acknowledging the CEAS credential as a validation of essential employee status. CEAS Communities can be State, regional, or locally based. Government authorities can use the program anytime following an emergency event that results in access restrictions or limitations to an area.
