NY Department of Homeland Security

The New York Department of Homeland Security is located in Albany NY. 

Welcome to the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES). I am confident that you will find the information here to be a valuable and useful resource, whether you are an emergency manager, first responder, or a member of the public.

Created in 2010, DHSES and its five offices -- Counter Terrorism, Cyber Security, Emergency Management, Fire Prevention and Control, and Interoperable and Emergency Communications -- provide leadership, coordination and support for efforts to prevent, protect against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from terrorism and other man-made and natural disasters, threats, fires and other emergencies.

The women and men of DHSES are dedicated to working closely on a daily basis with all levels of government, the private sector, and volunteer organizations to improve the readiness, response and recovery capabilities of communities throughout the Empire State.

DHSES has taken great strides in enhancing the State's readiness and response capabilities. From terrorist threats to natural weather disasters, the demands for public health and safety continue to increase as they simultaneously become more complex. As we face these challenges, it is critical that we remain focused on strengthening our partnerships through increased communication and coordination.
