Abstract
Canada (CAN) and the United States of America (US) share the longest terrestrial border in the world. Numerous towns along this border share emergency services and resources interchangeably. These communities have seen a recent increase in the enforcement of border security in response to the 2001 terror attacks which has created complications with cross-border movement of emergency personnel and resources. These changes were most notably felt when the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative [1], in 2009, started requiring Canadian and American travellers to show a valid passport to cross into and out of both countries at land and sea borders.
