Terrorism & Homeland Security Committee

The Terrorism and Homeland Security Committee is composed of fire and emergency service leaders who provide guidance to the IAFC and policymakers about how to prepare for the next terrorist attack. The committee:

  • Identifies terrorism and homeland security issues for IAFC advocacy
  • Is a resource on homeland security issues
  • Fosters and maintains crucial relationships with homeland security leaders
  • Strengthens IAFC visibility as the fire service leader on terrorism and homeland security issues

The Terrorism and Homeland Security committee has created resources like the Terrorism Response Checklist and Guide to improve the fire and emergency service’s preparedness to respond to acts of terrorism. In addition, the committee has provided valued input to American decision makers in the White House, federal agencies and Congress about how to craft national legislation and policies to protect the public.
