Preparing Makes Sense In Indian Country

 

In today's world, it seems as if a day doesn't pass without us hearing another report of a shooting or bombing taking place somewhere in the world, in our country and yes, even in our state. There again are critical steps we can take to prepare for such happenings. They happen without advance notice and at any moment, and we all have a responsibility to be aware and to plan as we work to keep our communities and one another safe.

  • CONNECT:  Reach out and develop relationships in your community, including local law enforcement. Having these relationships established before an incident occurs can help speed up the response when something happens.
  • PLAN: Take the time now to plan on how you will handle a security event should one occur. Learn from other events to inform your plans.
  • TRAIN: Provide your employees with training resources and exercise your plans often. The best laid plans must be exercised in order to be effective.
  • REPORT: “If You See Something, Say Something™” is more than just a slogan. Call local law enforcement.
