The White House is launching an online “trip alerts” program that will alert Californian residents of a looming terrorist attack in the state.
The “trip alert” feature will allow Californians to receive alerts about upcoming terror attacks in their region, such as a mass shooting in their state, an attack in their home state or an attack on a tourist destination, the White House said in a statement.
The trip alerts will be available via the National Terror Alert System, the government agency that manages the state’s terror alert system.
The alerts will include the name of the planned attack, the location, time and date, as well as the location of a state police unit and an “area of active security,” the White Trump statement said.
In California, there are more than 70 known or suspected terror attacks planned or underway in the next few weeks, and more than 2,400 law enforcement officers have been injured.
