Prevention focuses on preventing human hazards, primarily from potential natural disasters or terrorist (both physical and biological) attacks. Preventive measures are designed to provide more permanent protection from disasters; however, not all disasters can be prevented. The risk of loss of life and injury can be limited with good evacuation plans, environmental planning and design standards.
By working together and promoting initiatives such as “See something, say something!” we work to prevent incidents from happening. Visit https://www.dhs.gov/see-something-say-something for more information.
