The Homeland Security responsibilities include coordinating critical infrastructure security assessments and coordinating access to tools that businesses and individuals can use to self-assess cyber security vulnerabilities.
Emergency Management develops and maintains the Albany County/City of Laramie/Town of Rock River Comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) which consists of several governmental emergency and mitigation plans. We also assist local businesses with Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP) and work with regional partners to develop congruent emergency plans.

Our agency is responsible for several grants issued by the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS). We also assist other public safety agencies with Homeland Security grant and mitigation grant acquisitions and requirements.
