Guam - The Office of Civil Defense and Homeland Security is educating Government of Guam agency heads about the global terrorist threats we face today. Plexus Scientific Corporation Vice-President Robert Walker says the training allows people to perform better at their jobs, while staying aware of the threats both inside and outside the United States.

He also encourages the community to remain alert, as he says we have picked up some bad habits since the 9/11 attack.  "We've been nine years since a major terrorist attack inside the United States, as a result a great deal of complacency has set in throughout the country. We need to especially be cognizant that this is no time for complacency in America," Walker explained.

The training will continue at the Emergency Operations Center in Agana Heights tomorrow.
