SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LodgeNet Interactive
Corporation, the leading provider of interactive media and connectivity
services to hospitality and healthcare businesses and the consumers they
serve, today provided an update on their collaboration with the Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) and the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA)
in support of an ongoing public awareness campaign called "If You See
Something, Say Something.™"
Now in its second year of partnership with DHS and the AH&LA, LodgeNet is
continuing to help its hotel partners broadcast DHS produced video spots
encouraging vigilance and pro-active measures against suspicious activities.
The videos are shown on a free promotional and information channel that
appears when the guest room TV is turned on.
"Since November 2011, LodgeNet TV systems in more than 6,000 hotels have been
airing public service announcements designed to help make travel safer across
the U.S.," said Frank Elsenbast, Interim Co-CEO for LodgeNet. "With 98% of all
hotel guests turning on the TV during their stay, our TV systems represent a
highly utilized and broadly distributed platform that is helping DHS reach a
500-million traveler universe with messages of national significance."
"Reaching millions of guests that stay at hotels and motels each year is a
step in engaging partners in our Homeland Security efforts," said Secretary of
Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. "When we each do our part, we keep our
nation safe, one hometown at a time."
"If You See Something, Say Something." is a nationwide campaign designed to
engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report
indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime to the proper law
enforcement authorities. Additional information about the campaign can be
found at www.dhs.gov/if-you-see-something-say-something-campaign. DHS has
formed partnerships with a variety of groups including Amtrak, major sports
leagues, and community groups to enlist public support.
