    Terrorist Threat Level Returned to "Elevated," Reduced from "High"

    Nation urged to remain vigilant

    Threat level chart(Sept. 24, 2002) -- The federal government has returned the nation's terrorist threat level to "Elevated" (yellow) from "High" (orange).

    At today's daily news briefing, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said the decision tstemmed from a review of intelligence, recent arrests made in U.S. and the passing of the September 11 anniversary. The President made the decision this morning to lower the threat level, Mr. Fleischer said.

    He indicated that the public should remain vigilant since the nation remains at an elevated risk of a terrorist attack.

    When the color code system was first implemented in March, the original level was "Elevated" but was raised to "High" on September 10 Orange.

    The Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS) uses five color codes to disseminate information regarding the risk of terrorist attacks to all levels of government and the American people. It defines the "Elevated" threat condition as:

    [Elevated] Increasing surveillance of critical locations; Coordinating emergency plans with nearby jurisdictions; Assessing further refinement of Protective Measures within the context of the current threat information; and Implementing, as appropriate, contingency and emergency response plans.

    [Guarded] Checking communications with designated emergency response or command locations; Reviewing and updating emergency response procedures; and Providing the public with necessary information.

    [Low] Refining and exercising preplanned Protective Measures Ensuring personnel receive training on HSAS, departmental, or agency-specific Protective Measures; and Regularly assessing facilities for vulnerabilities and taking measures to reduce them.
