Most importantly during an emergency, the American Red Cross highly advises that people remain calm. Reacting with surges of panic is not helpful and only contributes to mass hysteria.
While the U.S. found itself unprepared for the deadly terror catastrophes that slaughtered thousands of Americans on the now-fateful September 11, 2001, it brought to the forefront how countries should be prepared and sufficient emergency reaction techniques that should be in operation.
Just as President Franklin Roosevelt said in his infamous speech to Congress after Imperial Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941:
“Yesterday … a date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked …”
Never again should countries be unprepared. Individual citizens have a responsibility to understand the basics of terrorism so that they can persevere and survive terrorist attacks.
