Production Vehicle Parking Logistics

Remember to bring one government-issued photo ID and a secondary form of ID.

In addition to your own credential, you will also need to visit the Lynn University Information Desk in the Accreditation Center to obtain a “Temporary” truck parking pass and directions to where you will park and power. You must fill in the blanks on the “Temporary” parking pass and display it in the front window of your production vehicle at all times.

This “Temporary” parking pass will allow you to get your production vehicle into the designated truck parking lots. Any vehicle without a pass will NOT be allowed to enter the truck parking lots.

Once you are in the production truck parking area, go to the Lynn University Rate Card Desk, located at the entrance to the Media Filing Center, to pick up a copy of your company’s order for services, and to pay for any additional phone, data, and other services you may require. If your rate card order has already been paid by your home office, ask for a copy of the receipt.

If you are not already in your final parking spot, you will be directed to one, and the onsite vendors will be contacted to supply any services ordered in a timely manner.

The “Temporary” parking pass you received will be good until the Secret Service Sweep the night before the debate. During the afternoon on Sunday, October 21, you will receive an official USSS parking pass to place in your vehicle prior to the Sweep. Any vehicle NOT displaying an official USSS parking pass is subject to removal from the compound during the Sweep.

All trucks and trailers must be in position by 5pm on Sunday October 21st. After this no more vehicles will be allowed in until the debate is over. There will also be no access to your vehicle on Sunday night during the USSS security sweep.

Remember that ALL vehicle doors, access doors, storage compartments, road cases, file cabinets, shipping containers, toolboxes, and any other types of compartments or cases MUST be left unlocked during the USSS Security Sweep.
