Homeland Security Television, an online producer of educational and awareness documentaries for security professionals, reportedly announced that company has produced a two-minute Public Service Announcement for Amtrak detailing the various security precautions that passengers can expect to see throughout the 2010 Olympic games in Vancouver.
The company’s PSA will air on all Amtrak trains servicing the 2010 Olympic Games in the Vancouver region. Company officials said that the video mainly talks about the multitude of security precautions that Amtrak has put in place to ensure the safety of the riding public during the Olympics.
The announcement also informs riders about the various visible and behind-the-scenes security measures being undertaken by Amtrak's Police and Security Office, the video also provides important information about the new travel documentation requirements established by the Department of Homeland Security for traveling to and from Canada.
"This was a unique honor that AMTRAK bestowed upon us," Dan Verton, president and executive producer of HSTV, said.
He said the company had previously worked with AMTRAK on other sensitive training and education programs, and think their confidence in HSTV to produce this very important public service announcement speaks volumes about their production standards and ability to communicate safety and security messaging effectively and accurately.
HSTV programs are produced for general broadcast use, but are made available through a robust and flexible online Content Delivery Network that can stream both live and on-demand programs in up to HD-quality directly to the desktop or mobile computing device.
