Army Deploys Antiterrorism Themes For Month
August 3, 2011
REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala.--Team Redstone will undergo additional antiterrorism training and education in August in support of Antiterrorism Awareness Month.
Training will enhance the current level of antiterrorism awareness for Soldiers, civilians and family members.
The purpose of the AT awareness month is to instill and sustain heightened awareness and vigilance to prevent and protect the Team Redstone community and critical resources from acts of terrorism. Leaders, Soldiers, civilians and family members will better understand the key AT concepts, principles, roles, responsibilities and suspicious activity reporting procedures.
Additionally this campaign will strengthen relationships with local civilian emergency response agencies such as police, fire and medical emergency response agencies in order to enhance responses to acts of terrorism and other hazardous events.
Army headquarters has identified the following themes to be used during the AT awareness month and as quarterly themes throughout the year:
• Recognizing and reporting suspicious activity and indicators of high risk behaviors
• Active shooter response procedures
• Application of AT doctrinal principles
• Integrating AT into the operations process
Take a minute to review upcoming AT awareness messages that will be published in the Redstone Rocket, Army awareness posters on bulletin boards, banners and iWATCH Army public service announcements being played on Channel 42 during August.
Antiterrorism awareness tools, videos and information are available through the OPMG-Army ATEP on AKO Page (www.army.mil/suite/page/605757).
