TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A new tool kit, designed to provide safety information for businesses and residents, was unveiled Monday by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

The "If you see something, say something" tool kit has a variety of videos and flyers to educate family and visitors on public safety information.

Officials said after the pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, a tool kit like this one will help remind others to recognize and report suspicious activity.

"If you remember, after most terror attacks, somebody knew something or saw something but never reported it so this is a way of getting the message out asking the public to be vigilant. It also sets up a new toll kit on our website that allows the public citizens and businesses to go to this site and find all the information that you use to have to look for on a variety of websites. Now its all at your finger tips on one sit," said Rick Swearingen, commissioner with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Officials have asked for gas stations to place the stickers on their gas pumps.

The "if you see something, say something" tool kit is available on the FDLE website here.
