Corporate Emergency Access System (CEAS) Program

The City provides information about the Corporate Emergency Access System (CEAS) Program. CEAS, the only program recognized by the NYPD and NYCEM that allows emergency access to businesses, enables employers to issue credentials to employees they identify as essential staff members. CEAS-credentialed employees may be permitted access to restricted areas following an emergency, allowing them to sustain or suspend core business functions until normal entry is restored.
