The BRAVO and CHARLIE-CRP alert stages have been extended until May 31st
The alarm level scale has four levels – the second in the scale is the BRAVO level. It can be introduced when there is an increased and foreseeable threat of a terrorist event or when the specific target of the attack has not been identified. It is therefore of a preventive nature.
The BRAVO step was introduced in connection with the Russian attack on Ukraine and increased traffic on the border. From March this year, it was in force in the Lubelskie and Podkarpackie provinces. In April, its range was extended to cover the territory of the entire country.
CHARLIE-CRP was introduced to counteract threats in cyberspace. It is the third out of four and it is the first time it is valid in Poland. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki introduced it on February 21. Previously, the first level of ALFA-CRP was in force.
BRAVO and CHARLIE-CRP alarm levels. What should we pay attention to?
“While the alert level is in force, particular attention should be paid to any non-standard situations and potential threats, for example: abnormally behaving people, packages, bags or backpacks left unattended in public places, cars (especially transport cars) parked near the assembly places”, he reports.
Maintaining security during the alert levels depends on the activities of the services and the preparation of administrators of public utility facilities, as well as the vigilance of all citizens. “Do not disregard any information about the threat! Notify the services immediately by calling 112” – informed the Ministry of Interior and Administration.
