The U.S.Department of Homeland Security(DHS) encourages business to Connect, Plan, Train, and Report. Applying these four steps in advance of an incident or attack 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.
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.

REPORT: “If You See Something, Say Something” is more than just a slogan. Call local law enforcement.
