DHSEM 2019 Fiscal Year Annual Report Published

From DHSEM Division Director Kevin R. Klein

I am pleased to present the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s (DHSEM) Fiscal Year 2019 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019) Annual Report. The report displays the concentrated effort of the division to protect those that live, work and play in Colorado.

DHSEM’s vision is to create a prepared, safe and resilient Colorado! The ongoing commitment of all members and offices within the division during Fiscal Year 2019 is visible throughout this annual report. A large part of the report summarizes the division’s activities in a collection of metrics. The numbers are impressive, but more important are the people behind each of the measurements. Whether it is the number of training sessions delivered, intelligence products written, disasters handled, communities assisted in recovery efforts, plans written, school safety tips handled through Safe2Tell, or the myriad of other programs provided by the division, a DHSEM staff member is behind each of the numbers presented in this report. Our highly talented and dedicated staff members plan and implement each meaningful task in the division’s mission to lead and support Colorado’s effort to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to and recover from all-hazards events.
