How to Protect the President at the Inauguration or Public Event

A PRIME Insurance Special

Friday, January 20th, 2017 was a busy day for police as they coordinated with the different agencies to protect the incoming president and his audience during the much publicized Washington, DC inauguration.

Besides for law enforcers from across the country, there are important things for regular folks to be aware of at popular events such as this one.

Points to Keep in Mind about Terror and Violence


Counter-terrorism groups advise the average guy on the street to speak up if something appears suspicious.

“If you see something, say something!”

As per national counterterror sources, the chief tactic in keeping ourselves and others safe is to foster a keen sense of mindfulness.

If you are privileged to be part of the 2017 presidential inauguration parades and festivities or something on a grand scale, keep vigilant. If you see something that appears ‘not right’, convey that message immediately to the authorities in Washington by dialing 911.

Be sure to relay the following when making a report:

  • Action you observed
  • Description of those involved
  • Whereabouts of the activity
  • Time you witnessed the activity
  • Why you deemed the action to be suspicious in nature

The Insurance Viewpoint about Terrorism

Question: Does my commercial insurance cover losses and damages related to terrorism?

PRIME Insurance Agency: Prior to the Attacks on September 11th, 2001, life in general was poles apart of what it is today.  Acts of terror were put into a low probability category. Insurance companies were prone to offer property-casualty ‘all perils’ coverage that included catastrophic loss that incorporated the results of any terrorism. Following  9/11, however, terrorism was spicifically excluded from many commercial insurance policies. At that point, terrorism coverage was usually presented as an added ‘rider’.

For more insight  into terrorism insurance in relation to your general liability insurance, homeowner insurance, auto insurance, business insurance, workers compensation insurance, bond insurance, travelers insurance, etc., speak to an experienced independent insurance agent.
