The Allen County Office of Homeland Security leads a whole-community approach to preparedness.  Our diverse community consists of all individuals, families, and organizations. When disaster strikes, the local individuals and institutions will secure our homeland together. Our strong, inclusive, trusting partnerships create a better prepared, more resilient Allen County.

To be effective, our Homeland Security program must be federally supported, state-managed, and locally executed.  Through our partnerships, we engage the full power of our community and its resources.
