1. Secure Hold Requests.
a. Transportation Services Providers (TSPs) transporting AA&E may request Secure Hold in response to an emergency such as natural disaster, civil disturbances, terrorist activity, driver illness, vehicle breakdowns or other emergent contingencies. Currently WSMR does not have a Safe Haven facility established but has identified an enclosed location near the Ammunition Supply Point (ASP) designated as a Secured Holding Yard.
b. The Installation Access Control Point (IACP) regarding AA&E shipment will be Gate 18-A, located on NM Highway 70, Mile Marker 174 (south side of Hwy 70).
GPS Coordinates: 32.4685545698439, -106.40837795967457
c. All TSPs will consist of two drivers for the vehicle and submit to the required NCIC-III before permitted entry to the installation. Any driver failing an NCIC-III check will not access into the installation.
1. The WSMR Dispatch Center may call the Surface Deployment Distribution Center (SDDC) at (618) 220-5060 or (800) 826-0794 to verify the requirement and authenticity of Secure Holding Yard requests.
2. If the driver fails the NCIC-III check, Dispatch will immediately notify the SDDC and inform them that a new driver is required. Dispatch will also notify the Transportation Office (TO).
d. Drivers will be informed of possible delays from the AA&E gate to the Secure Holding Yard based upon availability of security guards or officers.
e. The WSMR Secure Holding Yard area does not have IDS, CCTV, or dedicated guard personnel available to provide a guard to maintain continuous watch over the shipment. The driver(s) will be responsible for the security of the shipment.
f. The driver(s) must remain in the cab of the vehicle and remain fully attentive to the task at hand (not in the sleeper) or remain within 25 feet of the vehicle while maintaining a fully unobstructed view thereof.
g. The Transportation Office (TO) will provide the on-duty Supervisory Security Guard with a weekly scheduled list of AA&E shipments. The Supervisory Security Guard will handle request for Secure Holding Yard.
h. Upon arrival of Gate 18-A, contact White Sands Missile Range dispatch office at 575-678-1234 for further guidance.
