Port of New Bedford Awaits Security Equipment

Monday, October 13, 2008

With nearly $2m in federal port security funding awarded to New Bedford, Mass., Port officials are expected to purchase a range of security equipment . The Port of New Bedford won two grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Port Security Grant Program. The first grant of $918,256 was awarded in 2007, and the second one of $948,177 was awarded in spring 2008.

Neither grant has been released to the city due to a post-award review process related to environmental and historical preservation compliance guidelines, according to FEMA officials and Kristin Decas, executive director of the New Bedford Harbor Development Commission (HDC).
When the funding is delivered, the list of security items to be purchased includes: explosion detection devices, X-ray equipment, night vision binoculars, a new patrol boat, port security cameras, sonar machines, card reader systems and security training.
