The University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security (CHHS) works side-by-side with the nation’s top emergency responders in the public and private sector to develop plans, policies, and strategies that ensure the safety of citizens in the event of natural or man-made catastrophes.

To fulfill that mission, CHHS focuses on general emergency preparedness planning, continuity of operations planning and training, preparation of special needs populations during emergencies, mass evacuation and sheltering planning, emergency communication systems, hospital coordination, table top and field emergency response exercises, the provision of adequate energy supplies during emergencies, and grant writing assistance for governmental institutions seeking funding for emergency planning efforts.
