Hoosiers Encouraged to Be “Ready: Whenever. Wherever.”
When Attending Events This Summer
Memorial Day weekend is considered by many the unofficial start to summer festivities,
and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) encourages Hoosiers to be
prepared when attending one of the many events occurring over the next several months.
The “Ready: Whenever. Wherever.” campaign recognizes that violent acts and dangerous
events can occur anywhere, anytime – often with little to no warning. The campaign suggests
that event attendees practice reasonable awareness, report suspicious activity and develop
a plan for action in the event of an emergency.
“We continue to encourage Hoosiers to enjoy events as usual but plan ahead and be aware of
their surroundings when attending large events this summer,” said John Erickson, Director
of Public Information at IDHS. “Preparation can help ensure safety and calmness in the
event of an emergency.”
Hoosiers should consider potential safety risks in their surroundings and identify possible
actions they could take to increase their personal safety in the event of an emergency.
These are some tips to consider when attending events:
IDHS also asks Hoosiers to be vigilant when attending events and report any suspicious
activity. Suspicious activity is any observed behavior that could indicate the potential for
criminal activity. This includes, but is not limited to:
To report suspicious activity at an event, contact on-site security or the local law enforcement’s
non-emergency line. If violence is imminent, call 9-1-1.
