Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to Announce New Terror Alert System

DHS to roll out new terror alert system | Fox News
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced on Monday the rollout of a new national terror alert system that warns Americans of risks on U.S. soil. Johnson said his department would unveil the new system in the coming days and that it would reflect the “new phase” of the terror threat. The new system will include an intermediate terror threat warning. The new system will be the third since Sept. 11, 2001. The original color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System was ditched for the current system. Johnson said the current system has never been used because it has a “trigger that is a pretty high bar.” He added the new system would represent “the current environment and current realities.”

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said today that in the coming days he will announce a "new terror alert system" for the United States. "I believe that we need to do a better job of informing the public at large of what we are seeing, removing some of the mystery about the global terrorism threat and what we are doing about it and what we are asking the public to do,” Johnson said. Johnson said the United States has moved into a “new phase” in the global terrorist threat and requires an alert system that can respond appropriately.“We're dealing with the prospect of terrorist-inspired attacks by someone who may be totally below our radar and could act on a moment's notice," he said. The current National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS), which replaced the old color-coded warning system, has never been activated because it depends on a specific, credible threat to the homeland.
