|9/11 Exhibition at Columbus Circle (NY)|
I remember that day. My husband and I returned from Hong Kong the day before and I got up to go to work as usual. When I got there no-one was at their desk. The first plane had hit the north tower on my way from the elevator to my desk.
I remember phoning my mom. I left a message, “You are going to see something on the news later. I’m ok.”
I went to the break room. What is going on?
When you go on an international assignment you need to prepare for conflict.
What Should You Do?
- Call as soon as you sense something. The communication networks will be cut in the country that you are in if there is a terrorist attack.
- Make sure your family knows your location. Are you close to the conflict zone? They will be concerned.
- Buy a torch/flashlight and some batteries to make sure you can get around your apartment in the dark.
- Have a radio at hand. They will be broadcasting.
- Know where your embassy is in case you need to be evacuated.
- Before you go, review your will to ensure that it us up-to-date.
