Homeland Security Teams Up With Major Hotel Chains To Fight Terrorism One Room At A Time

Just like last year’s program that once again made Walmart safe from terrorism, the Dept. of Homeland Security has announced a partnership that will remind us all to fight terrorism while stealing towels and toiletries from the hotel bathroom.

Around 1.2 million TV sets in hotels run by Marriott, Hilton, Sheraton, Holiday Inn and others will now show a 15-second PSA from DHS, telling hotel guests what they already know: If you see something, say something.

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano says the deal “is a significant step in engaging the full range of partners in our Homeland Security efforts.”

The deal was made through LodgeNet, which provides TV content to millions of hotel rooms around the country.

“It’s about everyone doing their part to help keep each other and the country safe,” a rep for LodgeNet explains.
