Homeland Security Presidential Directive 3 (HSPD-3): Homeland Security Advisory System (Mar. 2002) (full-text).

Overview Edit

HSPD-3 established the policy for the creation of the Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS) to provide warnings to Federal, State, and local authorities, and the American people in the form of a set of graduated threat conditions that escalate as the risk of the threat increases. At each threat level, Federal departments and agencies are required to implement a corresponding set of protective measures to further reduce vulnerability or increase response capabilities during a period of heightened alert.

The threat conditions also serve as guideposts for the implementation of tailored protective measure by State, local, tribal, and private sector partners.
