More Information on Threat Advisory Conditions and Associated
Protective Measures

The world has changed since September 11, 2001. We remain a Nation at
risk to terrorist attacks. Our Department of Homeland Security has
developed the Threat Advisory System. The following Threat Advisory
Conditions each represent an increasing risk of terrorist attacks.
Beneath each Threat Advisory Condition are some suggested Protective
Measures, recognizing that the heads of Federal departments and
agencies are responsible for developing and implementing appropriate
agency-specific Protective Measures.

Threat Advisory System Protective Measures:

Threat Advisory Low Condition (Green): This condition is declared when
there is a low risk of terrorist attacks. Federal departments and
agencies should consider the following general measures in addition to
the agency-specific Protective Measures they develop and implement:

   1. Refining and exercising as appropriate preplanned Protective
Measures;

   2. Ensuring personnel receive proper training on the Homeland
Security Advisory System and specific preplanned department or agency
Protective Measures; and

   3. Institutionalizing a process to assure that all facilities
and regulated sectors are regularly assessed for vulnerabilities to
terrorist attacks, and all reasonable measures are taken to mitigate
these vulnerabilities.

Threat Advisory Guarded Condition (Blue): This condition is declared
when there is a general risk of terrorist attacks. In addition to
the Protective Measures taken in the previous Threat Condition,
Federal departments and agencies should consider the following general
measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures that
they will develop and implement:

   1. Checking communications with designated emergency response or
command locations;

   2. Reviewing and updating emergency response procedures; and

   3. Providing the public with any information that would strengthen
its ability to act appropriately.

Threat Advisory Elevated Condition (Yellow): An Elevated Condition
is declared when there is a significant risk of terrorist attacks.
In addition to the Protective Measures taken in the previous Threat
Advisory Condition, Federal departments and agencies should consider
the following general measures in addition to the Protective Measures
that they will develop and implement:

   1. Increasing surveillance of critical locations;

   2. Coordinating emergency plans as appropriate with nearby
jurisdictions;

   3. Assessing whether the precise characteristics of the threat
require the further refinement of preplanned Protective Measures; and

   4. Implementing, as appropriate, contingency and emergency response
plans.

Threat Advisory High Condition (Orange): A High Condition is declared
when there is a high risk of terrorist attacks. In addition to the
Protective Measures taken in the previous Threat Advisory Condition,
Federal departments and agencies should consider the following general
measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures that
they will develop and implement:

   1. Coordinating necessary security efforts with Federal, State,
and local law enforcement agencies or any National Guard or other
appropriate armed forces organizations;

   2. Taking additional precautions at public events and possibly
considering alternative venues or even cancellation;

   3. Preparing to execute contingency procedures, such as moving to
an alternate site or dispersing their workforce; and

   4. Restricting threatened facility access to essential personnel
only.

Threat Advisory Severe Condition (Red): A Severe Condition reflects
a severe risk of terrorist attacks. Under most circumstances, the
Protective Measures for a Severe Condition are not intended to
be sustained for substantial periods of time. In addition to the
Protective Measures in the previous Threat Advisory Condition, Federal
departments and agencies also should consider the following general
measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures that
they will develop and implement:

   1. Increasing or redirecting personnel to address critical
emergency needs;
 
  2. Assigning emergency response personnel and
pre-positioning and mobilizing specially trained teams or
resources;

   3. Monitoring, redirecting, or constraining transportation systems;
and

   4. Closing public and government facilities.

These procedures correspond directly to the Department of Homeland
Security Threat Advisory Conditions. Threat Advisory Live is connected
directly to the Department of Homeland Security's Threat Advisory
System and will reflect the current live US terror threat level at all
times.
