CEAS is a pre-event credentialing program, which authenticates critical business employees for access to restricted areas following a disaster or serious emergency using a secure identification card recognized by the police. Municipalities must adopt the CEAS Program for use in their jurisdiction before businesses can enroll in the Program and receive ID cards. The local authorities can implement CEAS following an emergency once immediate threats to life are stabilized.
Fulton, NY – This week, Winter Storm Juno caused the Cities of Boston, Cambridge, Providence and New York City to institute travel bans restricting access within these cities. With the thought that businesses would not be able to maintain critical functions during this event, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza and Cambridge City Manager Richard Rossi activated their Corporate Emergency Access System (CEAS).
