Emergency Managers Executive Roundtable

Convening executive leaders across the Southern California region

The Emergency Managers Executive Roundtable brings together emergency managers from Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Orange, and San Diego counties, in addition to the state emergency manager from California Office of Emergency Services and the Region IX Federal Emergency Management Association administrator. Each county emergency manager may also invite the emergency manager from their largest and/or most at-risk city or community. The roundtable provides a truly unique forum for these leaders to discuss current and emerging emergency management issues with emphasis on the Southern California region. 

Public Safety Delegations and Information Exchanges

Executive-level public safety delegations and research creation

The Homeland Security Advisory Council, HSAC@SPP, coordinates fact-finding delegations to recent, large-scale, and/or significant incidents, where Los Angeles-based public safety and crisis management and emergency professionals learn about best practices and examine how to prevent or reduce the impact of similar incidents in the Los Angeles region. Delegation members draft a white paper and conduct a symposium to present findings, lessons learned, and other relevant information for public safety officials in the Los Angeles region.

Homeland Security Professional Alliances

Presenting, advising, and leading in the public safety arena

HSAC@SPP's team of subject-matter experts participate in various national organizations, associations, and conferences to develop, maintain, and explore new opportunities. Leaders have engaged in academic training including teaching a class in the School of Public Policy in emergency management. HSAC@SPP's participation in this arena helps strengthen the region's preparedness, security, and resiliency.
