Emergency Services and Homeland Security


The Mid-America Regional Council helps strengthen the region’s emergency services and homeland security capabilities to protect, prepare, respond and recover. Through MARC, the region coordinates plans and gains access to high-quality training, exercises, technology and equipment. 

MARC’s role includes:

  • Convening individuals, local governments and organizations to support the region’s efforts to ensure our communities can effectively face hazards and threats. 
  • Coordinating training and exercises for agencies across the region.
  • Providing resources to advance the region’s ability to respond and recover.
