What is the “SECC”? The Montana SECC has been established to coordinate support for response and recovery to multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional emergencies across the state. By standardizing key elements of the emergency management system, the ECC is intended to:
What is the “SECC”? (cont.) Facilitate the flow of information within and between agencies and levels of the government (Local, County, State, and Federal) during times of emergency/disaster. Facilitate the coordination of resources among all responding state and federal agencies during an emergency/ disaster.
SECC ORGANIZATION OPERATIONS – Similar to an expanded dispatch – Filter resource requests – Gather intel from the field – ESF Divisions (Public Health, Public Safety & Public Works) Mission assignments to Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) – Assumes role of the DES Duty Officer when activated
SECC ORGANIZATION Logistics – Tracks deployed state owned resources including the National Guard – Supports state owned deployed resources – Supports the SECC and staff – Communications – Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) – Works closely with Finance for daily cost estimates, financial documentation, etc.
SECC ORGANIZATION FINANCE – Liaison to Governor’s Budget Office to ensure funding for activation – Assigns task profiles for tracking costs – Develops daily costs estimates – Documents costs for potential reimbursement from FEMA, responsible party, etc.

SECC Resource Mgmt All resources ordered through the SECC are on behalf of the local or tribal jurisdiction. Local / Tribal jurisdictions are financially responsible for all resources ordered by them and deployed through the SECC – “Emergency or disaster expenditures -- restrictions. (1) The governor may authorize the incurring of liabilities and expenses to be paid as other claims against the state…………….” We cannot compete against local or private enterprise with state or federal resources…..
Mission definition is critical when ordering resources. – Who, What, Where, When, Why – May not be able to get what you want when you want it. – Can’t be pro-active without knowing what you are doing. INTEL – When resources are scarce….. May need to paint a picture for the MAC-G and others to get you what you need. SECC Resource Mgmt (cont.)
