Threat Status Explained


National Terrorism Advisory System

Department of Homeland Security Seal: National Terrorism Advisory System


What is the current NTAS level?  The Secretary of Homeland Security has not issued an elevated or imminent alert at this time; we remain at a heightened level of vigilance.  See Read DHS Press Secretary Matt Chandler’s statement of May 5, 2011

This page contains any current NTAS Alerts and archived copies of expired alerts.

The National Terrorism Advisory System, or NTAS, replaces the color-coded http://www.dhs.gov/. This new system 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.

It 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.
