FPCON Measures

The FPCON system is mandated by Department of Defense Instruction 2000.16: DoD Antiterrorism (AT) Standards. DoDEA Regulation 4700.1: Antiterrorism Program provides guidance and establishes standards for implementing FPCONs in DoDEA. Local commanders determine which FPCON is appropriate. Updates and important information will be released via the Commander's Access Channel and other avenues as they become available.

Applies when a general global threat of possible terrorist activity exists and warrants a routine security posture. NORMAL measures must be capable of being maintained indefinitely.

Applies when there is an increased general threat of possible terrorist activity against personnel or facilities, the nature and extent of which are unpredictable. The increased measures during FPCON Alpha must be capable of being maintained indefinitely.

Applies when an increased or more predictable threat of terrorist activity exists. Sustaining FPCON Bravo measures for a prolonged period may affect operational capability and military-civil relationships with local authorities.

Applies when an incident occurs or intelligence is received indicating that some form of terrorist action or targeting against personnel or facilities is likely. Prolonged implementation of FPCON Charlie measures may create hardship and affect the activities of the unit and its personnel.

Applies in the immediate area where a terrorist attack has occurred or when intelligence has been received that terrorist action against a specific location or person is imminent. FPCON Delta is usually declared as a localized condition and is not intended to be sustained for an extended duration.

Active Shooter

What is an Active Shooter?

An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people, most often in populated areas. In most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. In some cases, active shooters use improvised explosive devices to create additional victims and to impede first responders.
