The Port Authority of Guam has been awarded $827,025 in federal 2017 Port Security Grant Program funding to further enhance the security posture and port resiliency at the island's only commercial seaport.

The grant award will be used to:

  • refurbish load centers housing newly acquired Federal Emergency Management Agency-funded prime power generators;
  • procure a three-year contract to maintain and sustain FEMA-funded prime power generators; and
  • provide operational and tactical training for the Port Police Division's Maritime Enforcement Unit through the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators training program.

"We are pleased and thankful that FEMA continues to recognize the port's efforts to improve its maritime domain awareness," said PAG General Manager Joanne Brown.

"Enhanced security measures are a critical part of our modernization program and these projects fall in line with the necessary upgrades that has enhanced the Port's core capabilities and resiliency," she added.
