For each survey, we ll draw out the names of ten respondents, who will each receive a $100 gift certificate good at Yokwe Yuk Fine Dining, Three Palms Snack Bar, Sunrise Bakery, Bowling Alley, Macy s, Macy s West and Gimbel s. And look for the report to the community on the results in November. Public Announcement The U.S. government remains deeply concerned about the security of Americans overseas. Following the attacks on Sept. 11, we have continuing concern based on threatening rhetoric from extremist groups and the potential for further terrorist actions against American citizens and interests. In this environment of increased tension and concern, the Department urges Americans to review their circumstances carefully and to take any measures they deem necessary to ensure their personal safety. The Department will continue to develop information about potential threats to Americans overseas and to share with them credible threat information through its Consular Information Program documents. These documents are readily available on the Internet at /travel.state.gov. As the U.S. government has reported in Public Announcements and Travel Warnings over the last several months, U.S. citizens and interests abroad may be at increased risk of terrorist actions from extremist groups. In addition to information included in country-specific documents, we recently advised that we had unconfirmed information that terrorist actions may be taken against U.S. military facilities and/or establishments frequented by U.S. military personnel in Korea and Japan. We also remain concerned about information we received in May 2001 that American citizens may be the target of a terrorist threat from extremist groups with links to Usama Bin Ladin s Al-Qaida organization. These individuals have not distinguished between official and civilian targets. In light of the above information, U.S. government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of alert. U.S. government facilities have and will continue to temporarily close or suspend public services, as necessary, to review their security posture and ensure its adequacy. In those instances, U.S. Missions will make every effort to provide emergency services to American citizens. U.S. citizens planning to travel abroad should consult the Department of State s Public Announcements, Travel Warnings, Consular Information Sheets, and regional travel brochures, all of which are available at the Consular Affairs Internet web site at American citizens overseas may contact the American Citizens Services unit of the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate for up-to-date information on security conditions. American citizens in need of emergency assistance should telephone the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate before visiting there. In addition to information on the Internet, U.S. travelers may hear recorded information by calling the Department of State in Washington, D.C. at from their touch-tone telephone, or receive information by automated telefax by dialing from their fax machine.
