Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI)
Created by the 9/11 Act, the UASI Program provides funding to cities to help build capacity against the threat of terrorism. NOHSEP staff and UASI team members work closely together to ensure New Orleans remains as safe and prepared for any and all disasters as possible.
As the coordinating body for first responders in any emergency, NOHSEP works closely with New Orleans Police Department, New Orleans Fire Department, and New Orleans EMS. Each of these departments maintains a full-time NOHSEP liaison, who work together to coordinate all disaster and emergency operations.
