Public gathering places like houses of worship, shopping malls, concert venues, and businesses of all sizes need to consider the proper measures required to protect staff and visitors.

Applying these four steps can help better prepare businesses and their employees to proactively think about the role they play in the safety and security of their businesses and communities.

The Department of Homeland Security encourages businesses to Connect, Plan, Train, and Report.

  • CONNECT: Reach out and develop relationships in your community, including local law enforcement. 
  • PLAN: Take the time now to plan on how you will handle a security event should one occur. 
  • TRAIN: Provide your employees with training resources and exercise your plans often. 
  • REPORT“If You See Something, Say Something™”
