As of approximately 00:10 HRS EST, a series of potential terrorist attacks allegedly involving one or more super-powered individuals and targeting several Manhattan-based Stark Industries holdings have been reported.
All Agents should consider this an ongoing and active event and by Director’s order Emergency Protocol Beta is in effect until further notice. All S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel are ordered to shelter in place and await orders from their superior officers regarding deployment, containment, or S.H.I.E.L.D.-sanctioned defensive measures.
At this time, our intelligence does not suggest that S.H.I.E.L.D. holdings will be targeted, but all S.T.R.I.KE. squadrons and S.H.I.E.L.D. internal security have been directed to hold their positions and S.H.I.E.L.D. SaR is on standby awaiting preparatory command. Additionally, as of 00:22 HRS EST both S.H.I.E.L.D. Manhattan Headquarters and Helicarrier Illiad are currently in protective lockdown.
NYPD and FDNY Emergency Services are already in place and will be handling any casualties.
There is currently no active S.H.I.E.L.D.-sanctioned involvement in this event. All Field Agents are reminded that Emergency Protocol Beta requires them to defer to local and federal First Responders.
