Welcome to New Hampshire’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management operations. As Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, I oversee the function as part of the Office of the Commissioner and have a direct line reporting authority to the Governor of New Hampshire. I oversee the Bureau of Emergency Management.

Emergency Management is responsible for coordinating the State’s response to major disasters. This includes natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods and severe winter storms, and human-caused disasters, such as nuclear power plant accidents or chemical spills. In our Homeland Security function, the Bureau also works on planning and training to prepare for terrorist attacks.

The Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management is the State’s primary contact with the federal Department of Homeland Security and our counterparts in other states.

We hope you will find this site interesting and informative, and hope it will assist you in protecting yourself and your family and your loved ones in the event of an emergency.
