Government representatives came together today to discuss ways they could keep Guam safe during the inaugural meeting of the Homeland Security Advisory Council.
Topics that were discussed included bolstering cybersecurity, protecting against unmanned aircraft systems, and improving school safety on Guam.
Jenna Blas, the spokesperson of GHS, says that this inaugural meeting was a great opportunity for senior government officials to be aware of their role in ensuring the welfare of the island’s residents.
“It’s really great that we have all the partners that are here — federal and local — to talk about different topics that play a role in homeland security. So a lot of the topics discussed today are more for man-made threats as opposed to natural hazards,” Blas said.
Attendees included personnel from homeland security, the government of Guam, military and federal agencies.
