Homeland Security Region IV

Never Forget.

Since the attacks of 9/11/01, Homeland Security has received a great deal of attention, and Emergency Management plays a lead role in coordinating local efforts.

Washington State is divided into nine Homeland Security Regions. Clark, Cowlitz, Skamania and Wahkiakum Counties make up Region IV. The four counties of our region are working together to better prepare our First Responders with training, equipment, interoperable communications, plans, ecercises and other resources.
