  2. Reviewing and updating emergency response procedures; and
  3. Providing the public with any information that would strengthen its ability to act appropriately.
Elevated Condition

  1. Increasing surveillance of critical locations;
  2. Coordinating emergency plans as appropriate with nearby jurisdictions;
  3. Assessing whether the precise characteristics of the threat require the further refinement of preplanned Protective Measures; and

4.Implementing, as appropriate, contingency and emergency response plans

  4. Restricting threatened facility access to essential personnel only.

A Severe Condition reflects a severe risk of terrorist attacks. Under most circumstances, the Protective Measures for a Severe Condition are not intended to be sustained for substantial periods of time. In addition to the Protective Measures in the previous Threat Conditions, Federal departments and agencies also should consider the following general measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures that they will develop and implement:
