Protecting our Homeland

7/4/2010:

Celebrating Independence; keeping citizens safe

As you may have noticed, many precautions are being made to ensure the Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular on the Hudson goes off without a hitch. Increased police presence, round-the-clock air surveillance, and undercover homeland security personnel blending into the crowds (I spoke with two of them yesterday).

One thing to keep in mind – in a news story that came out about six months ago – where the Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair said that “An attempted attack, the priority is certain (on the U.S. Homeland within three to six months)”

Hopefully they’re wrong – or they’ve already secretly stymied any potential threats to our country. This just serves as a reminder to keep your eyes open, be vigilant towards any suspicious activity, and have a backup plan in place to be prepared for any future disasters. Can’t hurt to think of what you’d do in case of an emergency, right?

Don’t forget you can listen in on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel at anytime to hear the goings on in town!
