Senior Advisory Committee (SAC)

The joint MDH – HSEM (Homeland Security and Emergency Management, a division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety) is a requirement of both agencies federal funding agencies; the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), The Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). MDH and HSEM must establish and maintain advisory committees of senior officials from governmental and nongovernmental organizations involved in homeland security, health care, public health, and behavioral health to help integrate preparedness efforts across jurisdictions and to maximize funding streams. This will enable HPP, PHEP and HSEM programs to better coordinate with relevant public health, emergency management, health care, and preparedness programs.

Meetings of the Senior Advisory Committee are held twice a year (February and September, although subject to change).

Next meeting: September 25, 2017- 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
