The National Terrorism Advisory System
The National Terrorism Advisory System, or NTAS, has replaced the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS). 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.
