U.S. DHS Updates National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin

U.S. DHS Updates National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) and the Mariana Regional Fusion Center (MRFC) follow the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) updates to the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS).  
Since December of 2015, DHS has included a new form of advisory, the NTAS Bulletin, which provides information to the public. It describes broader, more general trends and current developments regarding threats of terrorism. The NTAS features an advisory system that consists of three types: Bulletin, Elevated Alert and Imminent Alert, with the Bulletin being the lowest form of advisory. For more information on the levels of advisory, visit https://www.dhs.gov/ntas-frequently-asked-questions.
“The current NTAS bulletin is in effect until January 18, 2020. The current bulletin provides a brief summary of the situation with Iran,” stated Tim Aguon, Homeland Security Advisor. “While the bulletin highlights there is no specific, credible threat to the United States at this time, the Department of Homeland Security is actively monitoring and preparing for any threat. It is important for the community to be aware of the current situation with foreign nation states and remain vigilant.” 

The community is advised to report any suspicious activity, threatening social media posts or messages relating to current events, to local authorities and the MRFC online at https://mlrin.org/, following the joint campaign between Department of Homeland Security and Government of Guam, “If You See Something, Say Something” or call 671-475-0400 / email mrfc@ghs.guam.govIn the event of an emergency, call 911.
