Who goes where, when?

A new federal initiative is intended to help get the right people to the scene in the wake of major disasters such as hurricanes, terrorist attacks or earthquakes. Mark Reddig will find out how it’s supposed to work from OOIDA’s Director of Security Operations Doug Morris. They also discussed a warning from TSA that terrorists are being encouraged to steal trucks and use them to ram into crowds of people. Truckers who see people acting suspiciously around loading docks, parking lots, carrier terminals, truck stops or any other places trucks frequent are encouraged to call TSA.

  • If you see suspicious activity please call TSA at (844) 872-3778;
  • It’s never too late to share your views with lawmakers. You can do that at FightingForTruckers.com.
  • To call members of Congress, dial (202) 224-3121;
  • Read OOIDA’s Guide to Contacting Lawmakers.

Air date: April 20, 2017.
