National Advisories

In 2011, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) replaced the color-coded alerts of the Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS) with the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS), designed to more effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public.

The Homeland Security & Intelligence Unit recognizes that all of us should be aware of the heightened risk of terrorist attack in the United States and what to do. The below public link contains any current NTAS advisories, archived copies of expired advisories and general information about the NTAS.
