Abstract:

This guide provides, for each of the 54 states and territories, the identity and responsibilities of the directors of the following offices state emergency management agency, state homeland security agency, and state adjutant general andor military department. In states where the functions of homeland security and emergency management are combined, this is so indicated. The guide also enumerates the qualifications necessary for the director position and indicates the statutory or regulatory authority under which the position exists. For each state, the researchers have retained the language used in the respective state codes andor statutes. The authors of this guide researched three primary online sources state codes and statutes, executive orders, and Web sites of the respective agencies. In instances where laws could not be identified online, the resources of the Law Library of Congress were used. Finally, for those statesterritories that did not provide the requisite information online, the researchers telephoned the relevant homeland security or emergency management office.
