Homeland Security

The National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS)

The National Terrorism Advisory System replaces the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System.  This new system is more effective in communicating information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public, government agencies, first responders, airports and other transportation hubs, as well as the private sector. 

It recognizes that all Americans share a 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. 


The NTAS Alert - How You Can Help?

Citizens should report suspicious activity to their local law enforcement authorities or by calling 9-1-1.  The "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign across the United States encourages all citizens to be vigilant for indicators of potential terrorist activity, and to follow NTAS Advisories for information about threats in specific places or for individuals exhibiting certain types of suspicious activity.



If You See Something, Say Something

Across the country, in our communities, we share everyday moments with our neighbors, family, coworkers, and friends. We go to work or

 school, the grocery store, or the gas station. It's easy to overlook these routine moments, but as you’re going about your day, if you see something that doesn't seem quite right, say something. 


If you see something suspicious taking place then report that behavior or activity to local law enforcement or in the case of emergency call 9-1-1. Click here to learn more about this national anti-terrorism campaign. By being alert and reporting suspicious activity to your local law enforcement, you can protect your family, neighbors, and community.
