Recognize, report suspicious activity
Though Antiterrorism Awareness month has just passed, the responsibility of remaining vigilant continues daily. Remember the theme observed during August? “Recognizing and Reporting Suspicious Activity.” You’ve heard it said often before; “If you see something, say something.” Know who to call if you see something suspicious or to report a crime.
To report suspicious activity,click on the iWatch/iSalute link in the center of the page (<—). To report an imminent threat or crime in progress, immediately contact the Military Police by dialing DSN 114 or civ (0611) 143-548-7777/7778/7779; or call Host Nation law enforcement by dialing commercially in Germany or Netherlands: 112; In Italy: 112 or 118; In Belgium: 112 or 101.
If you see a rabbit that has visible puffiness around the eyes and appears fatigued (won't run when you approach it), then they may be sick with a virus called Myxomotosis. Rabbits that become infected by the myxoma virus develop skin tumors followed by fatigue, fever, and panting and usually die within 14 days. The virus is rabbit-specific and does not pose a danger to humans (or cats/dogs); however, as with any wild animal, contact should be avoided. If you notice a rabbit displaying symptoms of being sick, contact the Directorate of Public Works Customer Service at civ (0611) 705-9999.
