Print Terrorism Brief PDF

A terrorist attack will happen without warning and can occur anywhere. Be aware of your surroundings, especially in crowded and populated places. Take note of where exits are located, including emergency and fire exits. Whenever you enter a building, pay attention to the various ways to exit the building - especially the staircases since elevators cannot be used if there is a fire or explosion. If you are in a building explosion, stay low to the floor, cover your mouth and nose with a wet cloth, touch closed doors to see if they are hot before you open them, then exit the building as quickly as possible. If you are walking near tall buildings, be aware of objects that could fall. Don't ever leave your luggage unattended at an airport or accept packages from strangers. Carry a cell phone with you. Call 9-1-1 if you see something that appears to be a dangerous or suspicious situation. Follow the advice of authorities in the event of an attack.
