COULD THIS BE TERROR RELATED?

We are not experts by any means but let’s look at what has transpired over the last few weeks….

September 3 – Phillipines (Bomb Explosion)

The State Department Travel site posted this:  “After explosion in Davao, Philippines a State of Lawlessness has been declared by the Philippine government.”

The message is here —> https://ph.usembassy.gov/emergency-message-u-s-citizens-davao-bombing-september-3-2016/

September 18 – US Embassy (Worldwide Alert)

An Alert is issued to all worldwide travelers on the US Embassy’s messages on where and when to travel, what to look for and how to use situational awareness.

SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

Here are ways to put your Situational Awareness skills, experience and training in effect. These are only basic glimpses into each section of SA.

Observe – where you are and memorize in detail things all around you.  This will assist you at a later time to make a plan on how you will work to respond in the future.

Orient – Create a baseline for each and every environment you visit.  Observation is good but what do you look for? Knowing what to look for such as human behavior, are the things in the environment normal and planning on how to respond to what was those observations were.

Behavior – It is most difficult to use all three systems at once as the brain can easily get overloaded with information.  Using the first two sections and focusing on behavior of those around, such as are their hands shifty, appear to be comfortable or uncomfortable, agitated or appear out-of-the-norm. These are signs to look for at all times.
