Regional UASI All Hazards Consortium
CHHS staff will attend the first annual Regional UASI (Urban Area Security Initiative) Workshop to bring together federal government to work with the large urban areas from North Carolina to New York to focus on a number of critical issues facing the UASIs today. The Regional UASI Workshop will focus on regional policy, common regional projects, common investments and partnerships in key areas facing the UASIs and the federal government. The goal of this workshop is to better understand what the federal government prioritizes as risks and to initiate an annual examination of the activities within the region to develop collaboration among all of the major urban areas within the All Hazards Consortium footprint. The workshop will result in the production of a collaborative report containing opportunities to work together, recommendations, areas of improvement, and ways to obtain federal support.
