OOIDA to participate in DHS security program
May 29, 2008 2:42 PM
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) will be working as a sub-contractor with the HMS Company, which was chosen by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to receive a grant to provide program management, planning, and support services for the trucking security program.
OOIDA said HMS will support the security program as part of an anti-terrorism and security awareness program for highway professionals. OOIDA will provide training and outreach to its 162,000-member base of small-business truckers and professional truck drivers. Other subcontractors under HMS include the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Total Security Services International Inc, and Patton Boggs LLP.
OOIDA and the Teamsters are joining forces to build a team among their respective memberships and other transportation stakeholders to institute a training and communications network that coordinates with DHS in analyzing and responding to potential homeland security threats.
