Homeland Security

Our Nation was dramatically changed following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. These attacks required our country to refocus on the threat environments that our Nation faced to include not only the traditional spectrum of manmade and natural hazards – fires, floods, storms, hazardous material releases, pandemics, drought and disruptions to energy and information technology infrastructure – but also the deadly and devastating terrorist arsenal of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosive weapons.

Following Presidential Directives and Federal Homeland Security doctrine, in August 2003 by Executive Order, the Governor of Colorado established nine (9) Homeland Security Regions within the State. Teller County is part of the South Central All Hazards Homeland Security Region that includes El Paso, Park, Chaffee and Lake Counties. These creation of the regions was completed to foster the development of professional relationships, and establishment of partnerships among local, county, district and state emergency response agencies; non-profit and community organizations, and private business to enhance resources and capabilities to prepare, prevent, respond and recover for all hazard disaster or emergency incidents.
