terrorism preparedness

Terrorism is a targeted hazard that can occur nearly anywhere.  According to the South Carolina Emergency Management Division, the state has many critical and high-profile facilities, high concentrations of population and other potentially-attractive venues for terrorist activity that are inherently vulnerable terrorist methods. Terrorist attacks may take the form of other hazards when executed for criminal purposes, such as induced cyber failure, prolonged and extensive power outages, dam or levee failures, the use of hazardous materials, bombing, etc.  Federal, state and local law enforcement continuously work together to prevent attacks from occurring.  As a citizen, it is important to remember that If You See Something, Say Something.
