Since September 11th, 2001, it has become quite clear in my mind we can no longer take the safety of our country, families, or ourselves against violent attack for granted. I can’t say I remember a day since 9/11 when I have not seen, or heard of a malicious or deadly attack against a group of people, a school, first responder, concert goers… the list goes on. Many of you will probably agree with me.
Bouchard Insurance has a long-standing reputation for caring. We care about our clients, our employees, and the communities we serve. It also includes caring about their level of safety against violent attacks.
For this and other reasons, Bouchard Insurance is partnering with the US Department of Homeland Security, Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies to promote “See Something, Say Something”.
This is an initiative that encourages individuals across the US to raise the bar on community safety & security to the next level by being the eyes and ears of those whose mission is to ensure we all have a safe place to live, work, and play.
So what does it mean to you? It means ‘we’ (i.e., you, me, our families, friends, neighbors, co-workers and anyone who loves their freedom), must pay closer attention to what’s going on around us and respond appropriately to ‘something’ we ‘see’ and reasonably believe could severely injure or kill us.
We know it's difficult to "See Something, Saying Something" effectively unless you’ve been trained on what to do. That’s why over the next several months, we’ll provide you information, videos, and other ‘how-to’ instructions that will make the campaign a success and enhance your situational awareness to better protect everyone you care about.
Let’s start with something simple, but very important. Commit this phone number to memory:
