CONCORD, NH – State Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM) encourages the general public, its partners and stakeholders to read the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletins that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security began releasing Wednesday and to share that information as appropriate.
“Staying informed is the first step to preparedness,” HSEM Director Perry Plummer said. “Each of us can do our part by downloading and signing-up for NH Alerts, reading the NTAS bulletins, and helping local law enforcement by reporting anything suspicious.”
The Bulletins describe general trends, current developments and threats of terrorism more broadly than the existing NTAS Alerts and explain why the information is important to the public and how the public can contribute to the overall counterterrorism effort. The Bulletins are available atwww.dhs.gov/advisories. To receive mobile updates go towww.twitter.com/dhsgov.
