The Challenge: High Security Detail
As you can imagine, security around the Federal Reserve Building is tight. There was initial paperwork for Warren Roofing to fill out which included details about the crew members ranging from their date of birth and social security numbers to previous work experience. Once the paperwork was turned in, each crew member was subjected to a background check. This was followed by having fingerprints taken, plus another round of security procedures including proper use of badges and ID cards. And that’s just what it took to get started!
Every day, the crew had to have all equipment and tools inspected. Normal tools like hammers are considered potential weapons by the staff at the Federal Reserve, so each tool had to be inspected and then put through an X-Ray unit before it could be taken into the building. Even some of the materials had to be inspected because they are flammable. Once inside, there were only certain areas that were made accessible to the crew, so it was tough to navigate and gain access to the roof. Logistics were a challenge, but the crew adapted and made it happen.
