CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) will be holding a one-day information session about the threat of terrorism to the trucking industry.
The session, entitled Adding Eyes and Ears for Rapid Risk Recognition, Assessment and Response, will be held June 21 at the Glenmore Inn in Calgary. It is also being presented by Mullen Transportation, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
In the wake of Sept. 11, key issues such as the possibility of terrorists acquiring commercial vehicles for destructive purposes, what to look for to prevent trucks being used as a weapon and what to do if you observe suspicious behavior will all be discussed. The forum will also help fleet managers modify their company’s post-incident response plan and incident prevention program to reflect the new dangers.
The seminar costs $20 and those interested should sign up by calling the AMTA office at 403-243-4161.
