State Homeland Security Strategy A requirement to receive federal homeland security grant funding (updated every 2 years). Intended to help guide State and local homeland security planning and investments. State and local grant projects must link back to the Strategy goals/objectives.
State Homeland Security Strategy A Statewide Strategy, not a State or DHSES- OEM Strategy. Must reflect State and local priorities. More than a grants document; an opportunity to explain homeland security in NYS and outline our collective goals and objectives.

Emergency Management Certification and Training (EMC T) OVERVIEW Developed to support Governor Cuomo’s strategy of creating unified training, education, communication, and response protocols. DHSES-OEM worked with NYSEMA and Local Emergency Managers to develop the curriculum. Goal is to provide stakeholders with the same baseline understanding the State’s emergency management framework, to include key programs and concepts
Emergency Management Certification and Training (EMC T) Three Tiers of Training: County Chief Elected Officials (Tier 1) County Emergency Managers (Tier 2) Local Public Officials, First Responder Leadership and Other Emergency Management Partners (Tier 3) County Chief Elected Officials and County Emergency Managers must participate to remain eligible to receive grants administered by DHSES-OEM.
Emergency Management Certification and Training (EMC T) STATUS Training has been provided on three occasions, including a Tier 1/Tier 2 academy in November (next offering is in June) – 55 of the 58 EMs (or 95%) have completed the program – 39 of 58 Execs or designees (or 66%) have completed the program Tier 3 training will be rolled out in June in this region.
County Emergency Preparedness Assessment (CEPA) OVERVIEW A Governor's initiative to obtain a greater understanding of local preparedness levels and better position the State to support local disaster preparedness and response efforts. It is not intended as a scorecard or ranking system. DHSES-OEM has worked to streamline the approach based on stakeholder feedback. The goal is to develop a flexible, intuitive and user friendly approach that will work for every County. CEPA is an iterative/ongoing process. All Counties and NYC must participate to continue receiving grants administered by DHSES-OEM.
County Emergency Preparedness Assessment (CEPA) OVERVIEW CEPA is a framework and tool to help State and local stakeholders assess risk, capabilities, and the potential need for support and resources during emergencies or disasters. CEPA provides for a standardized and repeatable process to understand capabilities at the County level and identify statewide trends. The key component of CEPA is an in-person meeting between State and local subject matter experts to discuss and analyze local hazard and capability information and potential resource gaps.
