Recent Rash of High Profile Disasters and Emergencies and What They Have in Common

From the Boston bombings to the Texas explosions and Ricin letters they all have elements in common, each needed citizens to be involved in helping government prevent the events. When unusual events occur we find that people have knowledge about what precipitates these events. There are always signs that can be interpreted that would indicate a significant event is about to occur. While we vigorously defend people and organizations rights to operate freely in this Country, we also have a responsibility to protect the public. In Texas we had a chemical company that had problems that could be interpreted and predicted that this event could have been prevented. In Boston there may be people that knew the disgruntled or malevolent participants had the capacity to perpetrate the bombing but they stood silent as events unfolded. Since Ricin events are so uncommon it is highly likely someone knew the suspect was pursuing this course.

We rely on each other in this society to be involved and get involved to protect our lives and limbs. As citizens we need to assist our federal, state and local government partners to make sure they are efficient and effective in their effort to protect us. Too often people see strange or unusual actions but do not report them. We see unusual packages or out of place packages and do not tell those in authority so that they can check these things out. The “See Something, Say Something” terrorism prevention program gives citizens a tool to prevent unwanted events that threaten us. Stay involved and do your part to prevent disasters and emergencies.
