WASHINGTON, D.C., November 1, 2012 (HAF): When hate crimes and domestic terror strike, individuals, families, and communities suffer immeasurably. The unfortunate reality is that such attacks may not be preventable or predictable, but temples, community centers, and other institutions can implement protocols to better prepare and protect its members in the event an attack does occur.

On this page ("source" above), the Hindu American Foundation seeks to provide a convenient, one-stop space with training videos, toolkits, and other resources to better enable you to prepare for the worst.

You will find there more about the Department of Homeland Security's "If You See Something, Say Something(TM)" - a simple and effective program to raise public indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper local law enforcement authorities. The campaign was originally used by New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which has licensed the use of the slogan to DHS for anti-terrorism and anti-terrorism crime related efforts.

You will also find a link to download the booklet, pocket card, or poster provided by the Department of Homeland Security on what to do in the event of an active shooter.
