U.S. Travel Applauds New Terrorism Advisory System

 

Dow

Reacting to the new two-tier terrorism advisory system introduced by the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, applauded the move.

”On behalf of the entire travel community, I applaud Secretary Napolitano for establishing a clearer communications process to more accurately reflect situations that may involve terrorist threats,” said Dow. “Breaking communications for specific situations into elevated or imminent threats provides a mechanism for the traveling public to better understand current circumstances so they can travel with confidence.”

Dow continued, “We look forward to working with officials at the Department of Homeland Security to identify and effectively address other circumstances, such as state of emergency declarations, where clearer communications can help the public and avert confusion that may lead to significant economic impact.”
