Region One Homeland Security Planning Board

The Region One Homeland Security Planning Board is a consortium of representatives from each of the nine counties located in Region One which includes the counties of Clinton, Eaton, Gratiot, Hillsdale, Ingham, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, and Shiawassee, and other such entities or individuals as is deemed appropriate by the Regional Board and certain other representatives as described in the Board Bylaws. 

The Regional Board is organized to foster, develop, facilitate, and strengthen collaboration, cooperation, and interoperability within and between jurisdictions in Region One in order to enhance both inter- and intra- regional capabilities to prevent, mitigate, protect against, respond to, and recover from large-scale disasters and/or catastrophic incidents.

The Regional Board recognizes that large-scale disasters and catastrophic incidents often require responses that are beyond the capability of a single jurisdiction, region, or even state. Consistent with the principles of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Preparedness Goal, the Regional Board’s primary objective is to strategically assess regional capabilities, identify capability gaps, and facilitate a collaborative effort on the part of all jurisdictions within the Region to launch coordinated initiatives to address program capability gaps. 

The Eaton County Emergency Manager is the Chair of the Board for 2021. Per the Board Bylaws the meeting dates, times, and locations are posted here to remain consistent with the Open Meetings Act.
