Terror threats will no longer be described with color codes

January 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

The US color-coded terror warning system will be phased out. The Homeland Security Department and other government agencies have been reviewing the color system’s usefulness for more than a year. One of the most notable changes to come: The public will no longer hear automated recordings at US airports stating that the threat level is orange. The Obama administration will take the next 3 months to roll out a replacement, which will be called the National Terrorism Advisory System. The new plan calls for notifying specific audiences about specific threats. In some cases, it might be a one-page threat description sent to law enforcement officials describing the threat, what law enforcement needs to do about it and what the federal government is doing.
