Alert Levels

Code Green - All Clear

Standard operating level. No immediate or clear threat to the station. All departments may carry out work as normal.

  • Weapons worn by security are to be hidden except when in the case of an emergency.
  • Crew members may freely walk in the hallways.
  • AI/Cyborgs have no need to bolt down any secure areas.
  • Security must respect the privacy of crew members and no unauthorized searches are allowed.

Elevated alert level. There are reports or other proof available to indicate that there is a threat to the station.

  • Security may have weapons visible.
  • Crew members may be searched by security if deemed necessary.
  • AI/Cyborgs may bolt down high secure areas.
  • Suit sensors are mandatory, but coordinate positions are not required.
  • Energy guns, laser guns and riot gear are allowed to be given out to security personnel if the HoS or warden agree.

When a CentCom summary is received and printed at communication consoles the blue alert level is applied automatically.

Code Red - Immediate Threat

Maximum alert level. There is an immediate threat to the station or severe damage. Martial Law is in effect.

  • Security can raid departments and arrest any crew member deemed a threat to the station.
  • All crew members must remain in their departments.
  • Suit sensors are to be turned fully on at all times.
  • AI/Cyborgs may bolt down maintenance and airlocks leading to space.

Code Delta - Imminent Destruction
