Join Us as CMCA hosts the TSA Transportation Security Template and Assessment Review Toolkit (T-START) Workshop on August 17th
Workshop Overview 
The purpose of this workshop is to strengthen prevention, protection, mitigation, response, and recovery capabilities within the Highway Motor Carrier (HMC) industry, school bus, motorcoach and trucking communities by helping companies to develop comprehensive and tailored security plans using a TSA-provided Security Plan template.
The workshop incorporates an industry-specific threat briefing and hands-on instructions on how to use and modify the Security Plan template.
Security Plan Development 
TSA designed the Security Plan template to help surface transportation companies and operators develop effective security plans and activities based on industry best practices and requirements.

The template combines emergency preparedness components and activities into a single document, providing companies and operators a foundation to develop tailored, operator-specific security and emergency procedures.
Please note: This workshop requires each participant to have access to a laptop computer with Windows OS and Microsoft Word 2016 (or newer).  

Space is filling up fast for this event! Please email to RSVP so that you can attend.
