Corporate Emergency Access System

The City of Boston has taken steps to ensure that businesses in Boston remain operational wherever possible in the wake of an emergency or disaster, by implementing the new Corporate Emergency Assessment System (CEAS). The city's partner in this is the Business Network of Emergency Resources (BNet), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to establishing emergency and crisis management solutions through partnerships between local government and business.

How does CEAS work?

Boston businesses can elect to enroll online for a per card fee. Companies may designate a limited number of critical employees or contractors to receive a CEAS card prior to any emergency or disaster.

The CEAS Program enables law enforcement officials to immediately recognize authorized users, allows critical employees to enter restricted areas, reduces enterprise risk, and ensures that the right people have access to the right places at the right time. These critical employees can quickly get back to work, assess damages and ensure their companies' viability, continuity and recovery.
