Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

 
 
 
The Homeland Security Program's goal is to provide assistance and support to governmental entities and First Responders in formulating a regional strategy necessary to access funding to address any disaster whether weather related or man-made.

As an ongoing part of securing our nation from threats of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, The State of Texas has developed plans and strategies to enhance Homeland Security statewide. This planning has been delivered as a message to make sure all local governments and regions are well prepared. However, this preparation goes beyond threats of terrorism, but also includes preparedness for other disasters whether man-made or naturally occurring. First Responders are always the first on the scene to assist victims of any such disasters. Protecting and preparing these First Responders, then, is a number one priority

 

DETCOG EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS/HOMELAND SECURITY GOAL

The Homeland Security Program's goal is to provide assistance and support to governmental entities and First Responders in formulating a regional strategy necessary to access funding to address any disaster whether weather related or man-made.

As an ongoing part of securing our nation from threats of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, The State of Texas has developed plans and strategies to enhance Homeland Security statewide. This planning has been delivered as a message to make sure all local governments and regions are well prepared. However, this preparation goes beyond threats of terrorism, but also includes preparedness for other disasters whether man-made or naturally occurring. First Responders are always the first on the scene to assist victims of any such disasters. Protecting and preparing these First Responders is a number one priority


OUR MISSION 

  • Establish effective, mutually beneficial communication among the communities in the DETCOG Region.
  • Facilitate a coordinated plan of response to any weather related or terrorist incident.
  • Identify equipment, training and exercise needs in the region.
  • Identify areas of strength, weaknesses and possible threats to the region when dealing with disasters.
  • Ensure that all entities are advised of future funding opportunities and are prepared to apply for funding that will assist them in the coordinated plan of response to weather related or terrorist events.
  • Identify existing mutual aid agreements and where additional mutual aid agreements are needed.
  • Assist jurisdictions in the development of Emergency Management Plans.
  • Provide jurisdictions in the DETCOG region with technical assistance necessary to meet their Emergency Preparedness needs.

The major focus of these programs is to assist city and county governments in developing basic emergency plans and/or upgrading existing emergency plans. Programs include the development of mutual aid agreements, facilitation of interoperability protocols, and the upgrading of public health preparedness for and in response to Bioterrorism and other public health threats and emergencies.
