(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is encouraging citizens to be aware of the updated National Terrorism Advisory System and to link to it for information.

Citizens can receive federal alerts through IDHS Twitter (https://twitter.com/IDHS), IDHS Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/IndianaDHS/) and the state agency's website (dhs.in.gov).

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, in addition to the current system, will also issue:

  • Bulletins to describe current developments or general trends.
  • Elevated Alerts to warn of a credible terrorist threat against the U.S.
  • Imminent Alerts to warn of a credible, specific and impending terrorist threat against the U.S.

Indiana residents can also link directly to the federal system by visiting http://www.dhs.gov/national-terrorism-advisory-system. The system 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.

See Something, Say Something

State homeland security remind everyone that if they see something suspicious, say something by notifying local security, local law enforcement, or by calling the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center at 1-877-226-1026. If danger is imminent, call 911.

Ready: Whenever. Wherever

The "Ready: Whenever. Wherever." campaign recognizes that violent acts and dangerous events can occur anywhere, anytime -- often with little to no warning. With increased security concerns at the local, state and national levels, IDHS is encouraging Hoosiers to pause and consider potential safety risks in their surroundings and to identify possible actions they could take to increase their personal safety in the event of an emergency.
