Governors Group Publishes Guide to State Homeland Security – HSToday

In the wake of last week’s elections, the National Governors Association (NGA) Monday released a handbook to guide newly elected state governors through setting up and managing state homeland security operations.

“Governors must be ready–from their first hours in office–to respond to the threats of terrorism and disasters and ensure the necessary mechanisms are in place to protect citizens, property and businesses,” said John Thomasian, director of the NGA Center for Best Practices, in a statement.
