Background

In 2004, EOPSS designated five Homeland Security Regions and appointed a multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional Advisory Council for each region.

Council members represent all relevant public safety disciplines. These include law enforcement, fire service, emergency management, local public health, hospitals, emergency medical services (EMS), public works, transportation, corrections, and local government administration.

Working with our partners at the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC), Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD), and the Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG), MAPC is now the lead fiduciary for four Homeland Security Councils in the Commonwealth: the Central, Northeast, Southeast, and Western Homeland Security Regional Advisory Councils.

Our statewide fiduciary contracts currently include Federal Fiscal Years 2011, 2012, and 2013 funding.
