Metro Wants to Raises Rider Awareness During National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month and Metro aims to raise riders’ awareness of the Metro Transit Police telephone number so that riders know how to contact the police department. Metro also is hosting a series of informational outreach events at six Metrorail stations throughout the month to talk with riders and help them prepare for emergency situations affecting Metro service.

As part of Metro’s efforts to increase awareness of its police department’s 24-hour telephone number, starting this month, a new public service announcement by U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will play in the rail system to remind riders that if they see something suspicious, they should say something.

"Report all suspicious activity on buses, trains or in stations to a Metro employee or call the Metro Transit Police at 202-962-2121," Napolitano says.
