About Us

"A very important part of our responsibility is to coordinate the plans and activities of all organizations that might be involved in the response to a disaster. This requires tremendous teamwork. A rapid and effective response to any event will require the inclusion of multiple disciplines at all levels of government. This requires us to build those relationships now and to include all potentially involved entities in the planning process." - Eric Dietz, Director
