    Protection of the building occupants through the implementation of physical or electronic security measures, the application of window film to reduce glazing hazards, and increased employee awareness is often a first step in many terrorism risk management plans.

    Finally, comparing the incidence of terrorism with that of common accidents is an incompetent and irresponsible use of statistics. Household accidents are lots and lots of small, unrelated events.

The policies of the past two administrations—one Republican and one Democratic—have been successful in hunting down terrorists, destroying their safe havens, and preventing them from planning and executing attacks on the homeland. Knowing your response procedures will speed up that decision-making, and help reduce the risk of injury or fatalities. Some important points to consider if an incident were to occur: If your primary evacuation route is no longer safe, employees will have to find an alternative route - or find a place to hide.

This poses constraints on what can be done to reduce consequences once such an attack has occurred. While shopping center operators could choose to implement some of the security measures identified in this report immediately, many of.
