Terrorism

The primary objective of a terrorist is to create fear. With accurate information and basic emergency preparedness, you can fight back.

Know the Facts:

  • Seek the facts of a situation and think critically. Confirm reports using a variety of respected sources of information.
  • Over 90% of all past terrorist attacks have used conventional weapons, explosives, or incendiary devices as they are inexpensive and easy to obtain.

Be Responsible:

  • Do not spread rumors- confirm information with a credible source.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. Notice where emergency exits are located. Consider the best way to evacuate the area- wherever you are.
  • Report suspicious objects, vehicles, or persons to the appropriate authorities.
  • Cooperate with security procedures at work and in public places.
  • Take precautions when traveling. Be aware of unusual behavior. Do not accept packages from strangers. Do not leave luggage unattended.

If There Is a Terrorist Attack:

  • Stay calm.
  • Be vigilant. Look out for secondary hazards such as falling debris or additional attacks.
  • Know who to call and follow the instructions of emergency service personnel.

If You Are Trapped in Debris:

  • Move around as little as possible so that you don't kick up dust.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a handkerchief or clothing.
  • Tap on a pipe or wall so rescuers can hear where you are. Us a whistle if one is available. Shout only as a last resort.

If You Receive a Suspicious Package or Envelope:

    PUT IT DOWN- preferable on a stable surface.

  • Cover it with something like a trashcan or plastic bag.
  • Alert others to the presence of the package or envelope and evacuate the area.
  • Leave the room and close the door behind you.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Call 9-1-1

If You Receive a Bomb Threat:

  • Ask the caller the following questions: When is the bomb going to explode? Where is the bomb right now? What kind of bomb is it? What does the bomb look like? Why did you place the bomb? Where are you calling from?
  • Record the exact time and length of the call.
  • Write down the exact words of the caller.
  • Listen carefully to the caller's voice and background noise.
  • After you hang up, call 9-1-1 immediately.
