The Arizona Fusion Center is comprised of two suites; an unclassified environment comprised of multi-public safety agency personnel and classified environment comprised of FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) personnel. ACTIC is a unified effort to secure Arizona, to prevent and deter terrorist attacks and protect against, and respond to, threats and crimes to ensure a safe and secure state while protecting civil rights and liberties of citizens.
Through situational awareness, ACTIC provides a higher level of preparedness by disseminating focused, relevant incident alerts. The Center is responsible for sharing early, reliable and consistent incident information about situations that might affect jurisdictions. Situational readiness is enhanced when agencies are enabled to be more aware of events surrounding their facilities. The Center leverages thousands of diverse informational sources to provide early warning of incidents at the local, regional and state levels. Situational awareness provides for situational response, allowing emergency response personnel to collaborate and manage efforts, across multiple organizations, from a single common view and coordination point.
