Call for Security Upgrades at Penn Station -- Security Today

It is scary to think that this has not been done. Considering that most of the larger stations along the rail line has been conducting drills with all entities involved as well having command centers that take in camera feeds, and communicates with the all the Law Enforcement and Security having anything to do with the Station. That Penn station is not up to speed borders on the unbelievable. CTI was conducting table top drills for Union Station in Washington DC back in the 90's and early 2000's, Philadelphia had security assessments to it main station, that brought everyone into the loop, as well as table top drills. Boston, Atlanta and Fla. all worked on this issue back in the early 2000s as well. It is a good idea for any facility to conduct at a minimum table top drills covering things like active shooters, to weather issues, to medical issues. Every EP team let alone ever corporate security team should be using table top exercises to insure that they are prepared, why Penn Station has not, is hard to explain. FEMA has an excellent online course in setting up Exercises to include Table Top's It will take you less than 2 hours to complete and after the test will send you a certificate. http://ift.tt/2q1WPtP
