Website to Combat Terrorism, Targets Florida Businesses

May 7th, 2008 by flanews

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement wants businesses to help them prevent terrorism. Wednesday, FDLE launched a new website called Business-safe. The website will enable businesses to log-on and get updated terror alerts, specific to their industry. The site would also let businesses report any suspicious activity. FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey said the website will also cut down on the amount of calls emergency workers receive during disasters.

“This will allow a one step, one click notification to any business that signed up to see that: Yes, this is what we see the problem is with your utilities. Yes, Florida Power & Light says it’s going to be up in another 45 minutes, or tomorrow, or whenever. It’ll be very effective should we have another statewide disaster,” said Bailey.

The site cost 6,000 dollars to build, but Florida business owners can use it for free.
