Governor Taft has released recommendations on ways families, schools and businesses can deal with future security alerts. The recommendations are included in homeland security response guides from the state’s security task force. The guides provide information to help Ohioans take proper security precautions at each of the five levels of the state’s terrorist alert system. They will be distributed to school superintendents, business associations and local governments. Like the federal government, the state has a five-step colored alert system, with green meaning low possibility of a terrorist attack and red meaning a severe chance that a terrorist attack will occur. The current level is yellow. This means there is an elevated risk of a terrorist attack, but not specific region or target has been indentified.
