Task Force to Work on Terror Alert System

September 14, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

The Homeland Security Department wants to make its color-coded terror alert system more user-friendly.

The agency has created a task force to review ways that the system could provide more specific guidance to state and local government officials about how to respond when the alert level is raised, department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse said.

He said meetings have been set up for October to get reaction to how the system is working.

The alert level, now on yellow, has been raised to orange four times since the system was introduced in March 2002.
