    "What level of ID card?"
    ID card??
    What the hell is an ID card??

    In Newfoundland, Canada, the Government of Newfoundland, Department of Government Services, Trade Practices Division, gives you a paper - paper, mind you, not even laminated - licence with no picture. It's almost useless.

    And there was talk just a month or so ago by the government of eliminating that.

    That's the same government that allows guards to work for 3 months(!!!) without a Certificate of Conduct (criminal record check), training, or licence. Thank the gods they're not armed...


    So many reasons to hate working here...

    By HIPPA, I mean storing your edition of the card information, since you'd need a copy for scene management, like your engine and FF tags. That information would be privvy to HIPPA safeguards.

    A medical "breakaway" card is useful. However, you have to weigh one thing: The HIPPA requirements, and the possibility that the employee may fail to disclose information on that card - fearing that you'll terminate their employment due to a medical issue they're hiding. This may generate liability on the company for providing "negligent" data.

    These are brushed aside if the card is strictly optional.
    Good point about the medical issue. As far as the HIPPA the info is on the side that is on the inside of a two sided folded card inside a sealed pouch.

    JFK badge, IL? What is that?
    Company I work for has 2 buildings at JFK. Can't walk around the building without an escort if you don't have a NYPA badge. So, I got the badge. Miami and Atlanta ID's to follow shortly

    Good point about the dog tags Bill.

    The reason I am thinking of going with an offshoot of my FD ID is that if a guard is injured the tag can be opened with medical and contact info there for EMS and ER to see. Also I think with a company card I can have other info there that would not be on a generic ID.

    I like the swipe card idea but an EMT or Medic would not have access to a card reader in my area at point of contact.

    I have my 'guard card' from the State in my wallet. The plant where I work issues those of us working contract Security a photo ID we are supposed to wear clipped to our uniform but nobody ever bothers wearing it unless we know the Coast Guard is coming to do an inspection.

    I only carry my state commission card (they don't call it a "guard card" here, tg) and my driver license. Both of them have my photo and pertinent information.

    Hey, why not. 9 times out of 10, your standing there going, "So, who is this guy?"

    Fargo or other Card Systems are infinitely better than your laser printer and a laminator.

    Spend the grand on a Fargo or Magicard or whatever system. I plan (sorry, distributors) to pick one up off ebay. You can encode them magnetically, or have RFID tag in them. Full face printing. With a Logitech Quickcam, a PC with printing software, and a Magicard printer, you have a complete DMV-style document creation station. Total cost used? About 2.5 grand, with PC. Total cost new? I've seen the printers go for about 3 grand USD, but those are super expensive.

    I'm sure some of our integrators have their preferences, and why they have them, on manufacturer and unit. I'd like to hear about them, and will post some basic criteria for a card system for my organization:

    - Full face printing on front. Optional face printing on back depending on printer cost.
    - Tamper resistant printing media (film). I don't care how its tamper resistant, ie: Holocote, holographic die (Magicard), etc. Just make the film unique.
    - Ability to print from multiple templates (Robust software to drive the printer)
    - Small Duty Use - I'd print about 1-4 cards a day, not 1000-4000 like some companies do.

    I think these are basic for any startup organization.
