In this round table discussion, state and industry experts and webinar participants will discuss efforts underway within the DHS and state emergency management and law enforcement officials to create state-by-state, access control efforts and standard operating policies and procedures impacting the first responder and security community. Up-to-date status of various state-adopted procedures that could impact security industry companies and employees during a disaster or terrorist event will be reviewed.

Speakers will also discuss the challenges of access to emergency zones, the Mississippi and Louisiana SOP’s and other state activities now underway -- including a national approach to the issue of “access.” Emergency response planning, access control, resources and training, and technology available to first responders will also be addressed.
