EMI Campus Security
Note for students attending Emergency Management Institute (EMI) National Emergency Training Center (NETC), Emmitsburg, MD:
For all students attending Emergency Management Institute (EMI), effective 12:00 a.m., Saturday, August 2, 2008, FEMA will re-instate security measures at the main entrance to the National Emergency Training Center (NETC). The security measures include the introduction of two armed security officers at the main entrance. Please coordinate your arrival at least 24 hours ahead of your scheduled arrival. Also please be prepared to present a government-issued photographic identification for yourself and anyone traveling with you. Failure to complete both processes may delay or prohibit your entrance into the NETC.
Non-FEMA employed Students: Students on the access list and traveling by shuttle bus will be directed to Building C for registration. Students arriving in other vehicles must be on the pre-approved access list to be granted access to NETC and are subject to a vehicle search. At registration, all students will receive a temporary photo identification badge and a temporary parking permit to individuals driving a motor vehicle.
FEMA employed Students: Students who are FEMA employees will be granted access using their FEMA identification. At registration, all students will receive a temporary photo identification badge and a temporary parking permit to individuals driving a motor vehicle. Vehicles are subject to search.
National Fallen Firefighters Memorial and cafeteria visitors will be granted access to the campus for visitation purposes and are not required to be placed on the access list. Government-issued photo identification (i.e., valid state driver’s license) for each individual will be retained by security until the visitor badge(s) and temporary parking permit are returned. Visitors to NETC accompanied by an NETC staff member will be granted access at anytime. The NETC staff member is responsible for the individual. The driver will be issued a temporary parking permit if the employee’s permit is not displayed, and will be returned to security upon departure.
Visitors that do not require housing, including individuals desiring to use the Learning Resource Center, will be granted access to NETC upon receipt of a request (i.e. SARA) from an NETC staff member. The request should be made at least 24 hours in advance. If this cannot be done, advance notice can be accomplished by contacting Security at ext. 1111 after making the entry in SARA.

Everyone will be required to provide a government-issued photo identification (i.e., valid state driver’s license), which will be retained by security until the Visitor badge and temporary parking permit are returned.
