Amid growing concerns of security risks to members of Congress, more than 50 senators have been issued satellite phones for emergency communication, people familiar with the measures told CBS News. The devices are part of a series of new security measures being offered to senators by the Senate Sergeant at Arms, who took over shortly after the assault on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

The satellite phone technology has been offered to all 100 senators. CBS News has learned at least 50 have accepted the phones, which Senate administrative staff recommend senators keep in close proximity during their travels.

In testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee last month, Senate Sergeant at Arms Karen Gibson said satellite communication is being deployed “to ensure a redundant and secure means of communication during a disruptive event.”

Gibson said the phones are a security backstop in the case of an emergency that “takes out communications” in part of America. Federal funding will pay for the satellite airtime needed to utilize the phone devices.

A Department of Homeland Security advisory said satellite phones are a tool for responding to and coordinating government services in the case of a “man-made” or natural disaster that wipes out communication.

Gibson has also opened an office “demonstration space” in the basement of the Russell Senate Office Building to offer senators and staff an exhibition of new home state office security upgrades. The demonstration room offers exhibitions of “duress buttons,” mail screening devices and safety glass to reduce the risk of attacks.

In her testimony before the Senate panel in April, Gibson reported, “Our team provided initial physical security enhancements for 31 offices and improved existing security for 52 others in 2022. Maintaining security systems in good working order is a priority, and to support this effort our team conducted over 622 service calls to maintain, repair, and or test and inspect state office physical security systems in 2022.”

Senate administrators have also offered “stop the bleed” training to better equip staffers to respond to medical emergencies and victims of attacks.

In April, the House Sergeant at Arms William McFarland told legislators there is “robust participation” in a program to help House members secure their home residences. McFarland said that House administrators are coordinating with local police departments to help protect members of Congress who hold events in their home states and to help better secure the homes of members.

A spending bill passed in late 2022 provided additional funds for hometown security measures for Congress. The legislation required security administrators to “enhance member protection including providing a security program for Congressional Leadership, expanding Dignitary Protection Division services and expanding USCP field office presence,” which would deploy and broaden Capitol Police protection in cities outside of Washington.

Though the U.S. Capitol complex is shielded by a force of nearly 2,000 Capitol police employees, there have been growing concerns about hometown security for members of Congress. A California man was charged in a 2022 attack at the San Francisco home of then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The assailant was allegedly targeting Nancy Pelosi when he confronted and attacked Pelosi’s husband Paul with a hammer.

  1. The rapture may not be like that. Scripture tells us that we as believers shall put off this corruptible body and take on a new un-corruptible body. Scripture also teaches to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord. I believe the rapture will be a quick death in the twinkling of the eye. Our old corpses will be left here. After all, paul said in me this flesh dwelltheth no good thing.

  2. Probably issued for the soon coming chaos after millions of people disappear and the grid goes down temporarily. All men and women who are saved by believing the Gospel, “how that Christ died for our sins, was buried, rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures”. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

    The level of confusion and panic, when late term pregnant mothers water breaks on the subway and suddenly the child they were carrying is gone into thin air; when cars by the hundreds of thousands are suddenly hurling down the interstates with NO DRIVERS and when every toddler and child under the age in which they comprehend their sins is suddenly taken, it will cause chaos and confusion such as has never seen before by the eyes of men.

    UNTIL a man steps from behind the world stage claiming to have the answers (order out of chaos) and tells the world we were abducted by aliens to be taken and schooled in “spiritual evolution” or some other nonsense because we were backward, archaic thinkers who believed in a book of fairy tales written by goat herders thousands of years ago. He will say we will be returned in order to quiet the populous. Do NOT believe him. He is the antichrist who was prophesied to come.

  3. They are going to cut of cell towers and blame whomever. Sat phones won’t work in say Raven Rock. America, has become a clueless society. Gen Z is literally less intelligent, than prior generations. A generation, of dunderheads. Just the way want it.
