The All Hazards Consortium (AHC) is a state sanctioned 501c3 non-profit organization focused on homeland security, emergency management, and business continuity issues in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast Regions of the United States.
Serving state/local governments and the infrastructure owners and operators in the private sector, the AHC provides an “enabling framework” which allows various stakeholders to come together on specific projects and issues, sometimes with competing or overlapping interests, to collaborate on common initiatives that result in unique benefits to each group :
· Integrate planning efforts on specific topics
· Identify interdependencies & common vulnerabilities
· Develop pre-event resiliency projects and initiatives
· Adopt common standards and best practices
· Develop plans and agreements
· Conduct joint exercises to identify joint gaps, projects, plans, agreements
· Improve business operations and reduce risk
The AHC helps governments work across geographic/agency boundaries with critical infrastructure owners and operators to get “businesses back” faster after an event. To date, companies in the following sectors have been engaged in the effort: Power, Transportation, Telecommunications, Medical, Food, Water, Banking & Finance, Information Technology, Commercial Facilities, Retail and Chemical.
