11 Jul 2005 Protect Yourself from Terror Attacks
The Fox News Channel website has an interview posted with a terrorism expert, Juval Aviv, who predicts a terror attack on U.S. soil within the next 90 days.
Aviv has this advice for people who use mass transportation:
…have with you, a bottle of water, a small towel and a flashlight. What happened in London is exactly a point to look at. Those people who were close to the bombs died, then others were injured or died from inhaling the toxic fumes or getting trampled. The reason you take a bottle of water and a towel is that if you wet the towel and put it over your face, you can protect yourself against the fumes and get yourself out of there.
Aviv also advises:
Don’t be bashful. If your gut feeling tells you when you walk onto a bus there is something unusual or suspicious, get out and walk away. You may do it 10 times for no reason, but there will be one time that saves your life. Let your sixth sense direct you.
