PC EMA Director Says Stay Alert

Share this post

Emergency managers like Director of Porter County Emergency Management Russell Shirley stress the importance of being vigilant, all the time, in light of the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon Monday.    "When you're there, you're having a good time, you're not thinking about that kind of stuff," Shirley said. "What you need to do is be more aware of your surroundings. The adage now is, 'If you see something, say something', and that's obviously never been more true. If you see something suspicious, say something to somebody -- let us know that you see something suspicious because the public really is the 'eyes and ears'." Shirley says the public is going to see more than what the police, or the fire, ems, emergency responders are going to see.  You can hear more of our interview with Russell Shirley at News Audio on Demand here at our website.
