Highway Watch to share intel directly

Dec. 7, 2005
The Highway Watch program will begin disseminating reports from its Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) directly to the Emergency Management and Response’s (EMR) ISAC network

The Highway Watch program will begin disseminating reports from its Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) directly to the Emergency Management and Response’s (EMR) ISAC network. Prior to this, the EMR received Highway Watch data through the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security and other sources.

"This new alliance automatically puts the Highway Watch information into the hands of first responders in every major city in the country,” said Don L. Rondeau, director of the Highway ISAC. "It greatly enhances our ability to immediately mobilize and respond to an incident and that increased capacity to react will pay tremendous dividends in our efforts to keep America safe and secure."

The EMR-ISAC network is comprised of 22,000 first responders including fire departments, law enforcement personnel, emergency medical technicians (EMT) and state emergency management personnel.

The Highway Watch program operates ooperative agreement with the Dept. of Homeland Security trains. It trains transportation professionals on how to report safety and security issues to a Highway Watch hotline.
