Homeland Security Chief Reminds Public to Be Aware of Surroundings


New Hampshire’s director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is calling on Granite Staters to be vigilant in the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting at a church in Texas.


Perry Plummer says residents should be aware of their surroundings and report anything they think does not look right.


“We have an intel center that tries to communicate with all law enforcement. Our local and state law enforcement, and federal law enforcement, work every day to try to prevent these things from happening and communicate. Some efforts you see, and a lot of efforts you don’t see.”


Plummer was asked about the Texas shooting during a Monday appearance on The Exchange.

Twenty-six people were killed in the shooting in Texas, in what was the fifth deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
