"And at home, Australia's national terrorism public alert is currently at medium and has remained unchanged for the last 11 years. (Aussie ABC)"

What meaning does ‘at medium’ have?

1 Answer 1


See this link on Australia's National Terrorism Public Alert System

The National Terrorism Public Alert System is a range of four levels that communicate an assessed risk of terrorist threat to Australia. The four levels are:

  • low—terrorist attack is not expected
  • medium—terrorist attack could occur
  • high—terrorist attack is likely
  • extreme—terrorist attack is imminent or has occurred

So, it just means the current level of threat is medium, as defined by this alert system.
