Equipment to Facilitate Issuing of Secure Credentials for Volunteers During Emergencies
ASHBURN, Va. – March 8, 2011 –For Telos ID® employees like Lisa Kimball, information technology and identity protection are a way of life. In addition to the support she provides to her Department of Defense customers every day, Kimball was recently able to use her expertise to help match up the needs of one local charity to benefit the citizens of Loudoun County.
“The mission of the Loudoun County Medical Reserve Corps is to improve the health and safety of communities across the county by organizing public health, medical and other volunteers,” said Kimball, who is Vice President of DMDC Operations for Telos ID and also a volunteer who chairs the information technology subcommittee at LCMRC. “In my job at Telos ID, I support the largest biometric program in the world, and we help to provide secure identity credentials for millions of military members, retirees and their family members and I realized the Medical Reserve Corps had many of the same needs.
Lisa selected Datacard Group solutions to produce trusted credentials for the volunteers who serve our community during a medical emergency.
“Datacard recognizes the growing challenges of the identification needs of first responders and emergency response volunteers” said Mike Berman, Vice President and General Manager, Datacard Public Sector. “Our software and printer solutions will help increase the efficiencies and reduce risk in the secure credentialing process.”
Both Telos ID and Telos® Corporation have a long-standing tradition of supporting the community through local charities such as Loudoun Cares and the Loudoun Education Foundation, as well as supporting national organizations such as Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) and Trout Unlimited’s Veteran’s Service Program.
