Chapter member Ted Wade, President of All Hazards Security was presented with the Mrs. Smith Award by the South Central Task Force: Business, Industry, and Infrastructure Subcommittee. Ted is a chapter member, former officer, and the current Regional Vice President for ASIS International Region 5B.
Ted was recognized with the Mrs. Smith Award from the South Central Task Force Business, Industry and Infrastructure Subcommittee. For those who are not aware of the South Central Task Force, it is one of 9 regional counter-terrorism task forces in Pennsylvania. The South Central Task Force provides emergency preparedness and response capabilities for emergencies that exceed the capabilities of local jurisdictions across an eight county area.
The symbolic Mrs. Smith is used as a catch phrase within the task force as the ‘customer’ who picks up the phone and calls 911 during the worse day of their life. Mrs. Smith can be a citizen, small business owner, or a large business that is impacted by a man made or natural disaster. Making Mrs. Smith’s problems go away regardless of jurisdictional borders and functional specialties is the task of all emergency responders in the region.
Ted was nominated and selected for his significant and substantive efforts to improve regional emergency preparedness. He has provided training and situational awareness updates on physical security and terrorism prevention issues to ASIS International and the SCTF Business, Industry, and Infrastructure Subcommittee for more than a decade. Ted serves on the regional Incident Management Team that assists local jurisdictions provided command, control, and assistance during incidents exceeding local capabilities.
