‘Let’s Talk Port’ to Focus on Security March 24
Port protection highlighted at El Dorado Park community forum
March 11, 2010
Port security will take center stage as the "Let's Talk Port" series of community forums continues March 24 at 6:30 p.m. at El Dorado Park, with an evening focused on protection of the Port of Long Beach.
Safeguarding the Port of Long Beach is a top priority, given the Port's role as a major international hub for trade and an economic engine for the region. Some of the most common questions the Port receives are about security and the progress made since 9/11.
At the forum, Port officials and security partners will discuss how highly skilled personnel, high-tech equipment and comprehensive organizational efforts are brought together to secure the Port of Long Beach and its business operations.
- The event starts at 6:30 p.m. at the El Dorado Park Senior Wing/Bridge Room, 2800 Studebaker Road, Long Beach, 90815.
Port officials will be joined by representatives from the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, and the Long Beach Police and Fire departments.
The "Let’s Talk Port" series of traveling forums is open to the public, giving residents a chance to interact with Port representatives and an opportunity to provide feedback on the issues that matter to them.
There will be light refreshments and giveaways. This is the third of four Let’s Talk Port forums set for this year, each with a unique theme. For more information on Let’s Talk Port, please visit our website at www.polb.com/outreach
