Friday February 1st, 2013 - 2:46PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD—In keeping with LodgeNet Interactive Corporation’s 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,” LodgeNet is continuing to help its hotel partners broadcast DHS-produced video spots encouraging proactive measures against suspicious activities.

The videos are shown on a free promotional and information channel that appears when the guestroom 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, in a statement. “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.”
