Homeland Security and Emergency Response
Phone: (304) 558-5938
The Homeland Security and Emergency Response group is responsible for a wide range of activities that have impacts far beyond the Agency. Response to chemical and other hazardous materials spills is their highest profile and, perhaps, their most important job. They also serve as the liaison between DEP and other state and federal agencies in times of emergencies. Additionally they represent the State on a number of national and regional homeland security and emergency management study and response groups.
