The "Be Vigilant" TVS guides you through three separate, but related, incidents of suspicious activity that could lead to a bombing event. It reinforces the fact that several different people in numerous scenarios have opportunities to spot these indicators and make proper notifications. The videos reinforce the fact that bombs can be made from everyday items, and that retail employees and store managers are the first line of defense in spotting and reporting suspicious purchases, activities and behaviors. The "Be Vigilant" TVS powerfully shows every American that if you See Something, Say Something. You may stop a horrific event and save the lives of potential innocent victims.
