The federal government announced that on April 26, 2011, the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) will replace the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS). The NTAS will more effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public, government agencies, first responders, airports and other transportation hubs, and the private sector. The NTAS recognizes that Americans all share responsibility for the nation’s security, and should always be aware of the heightened risk of terrorist attack in the United States and what they should do.
NTAS Alerts will be organized into the following two threat categories:
Imminent Threat Alert - Warns of a credible, specific, and impending terrorist threat against the United States.
Elevated Threat Alert - Warns of a credible terrorist threat against the United States.
Please see the box below to know what Alert we are currently under as a country.
