Speaker : TSA Nebraska

Kathy Bogus with the TSA Nebraska and Paul from Omaha Eppley is our Kiwanis speakers today. 

TSA is more than airports. TSA is all transportation - air, rail, roads, ports and pipeline. But airports are about 80% of TSA's time and resources. There are about 300 employees in Nebraska, 200 in Omaha. 

The vetting process begins as soon as the airplane reservation begins. 

International packages are tracked coming into the U.S.  

The Advanced Imaging Technology actually does not detect medical implants. Better than the metal detectors. Pregnant women should check the website and heart implant patients should check with their doctor.
