Ketchikan Activation Update
The Ketchikan mobile activation center will be in operation from Friday, Dec 5 through Friday, Dec 19, then will return from Monday, Jan 5 through Friday, Jan 9. It will be located in the Ketchikan Harbor Office. Hours: Mon-Fri 8:00a-5:00p.
Note: This center will only be activating those cards enrolled for during the previous enrollment visit this summer.
Several cards which were not activated during the Craig activation visit during the first week of December have been transferred to Ketchikan.  If you enrolled in Craig and did not activate your card this month when they were in town, give me a call and we should be able to confirm that your card is in Ketchikan.
Dutch Harbor Mobile Visit 
Lockheed Martin will be returning to Dutch Harbor to continue the activation of TWIC which were not activated during their previous visit.  They will also be conducting another round of INITIAL ENROLLMENTS for anyone who has not enrolled yet.
The center will be located at the Unalaska Public Library from Monday, January 12 through Friday, January 16.  Hours:  8:00a-12:00p & 1:00p-5:00p.
As a reminder, the TWIC compliance date for waterfront workers requiring access to secure areas is February 12, 2009.  There's still a chance that anyone enrolling during this visit can get their TWIC processed in time to meet this date (or shortly thereafter), but this will require the new enrollee to plan a trip to Anchorage to activate their card once it's processed.
Anyone in Dutch Harbor who has enrolled for TWIC in the Anchorage fixed center and hasn't yet activated your card, please contact me and we'll try to get these cards added to the stack being carried out for this visit.
