The MCCP is a joint initiative between the Massachusetts Harbormasters Association Inc. and the United States Coast Guard to better secure the waters within, and surrounding the Port of Boston. Lan-Tel Communications Inc. is the contractor implementing this regional system.
The initiative is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency through the Port Security Grant Program (“PSGP”) and Chapter 220 of the Acts 2016 Section 6.
The PSGP plays an important role in the implementation of the National Preparedness System of being a secure and resilient nation. This effort requires the combined effort of our entire maritime community.
The primary objective is to enhance the maritime domain awareness to secure all the harbors within the Port, providing ancillary benefits to assist Harbormasters and local first responders with daily operation including but not limited to responding to: 1) Emergencies 2) Law enforcement issues 3) Natural disasters.
