The Vision and Mission

Our vision is to facilitate common standards of knowledge in responses, bridge the gap between government and traditional non-government organizations (NGOs), and between non-traditional NGOs and community volunteer organizations in coordinating responses of various scales to national disaster and other homeland security events.

Our mission is to provide emergency management practitioners, private sector and NGO leaders, and government executives with training and/or certification to facilitate their knowledge of the current prescribed response frameworks.

To achieve these, we will:

  • Utilize subject matter experts to assess, articulate, and meet homeland security training needs
  • Through certification, test executed knowledge to ensure uniformity in assistance across all levels
  • Train agencies and organizations that do not have the collective expertise or resources to do it themselves

With a diverse membership of highly qualified professionals that includes active and retired military, law enforcement and security experts, firefighters and other first responders, physicians, nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, dentists, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, social workers, crisis interveners, accountants, IT and telecommunication professionals, engineers and others, the ABCHS has at the core of its membership some of the world's leading professionals; who have significant experience with and links to homeland security.

Our total commitment to homeland security, together with an extraordinary knowledge base provided by our members, combined with an in-place organizational structure designed to deliver the highest quality training and continuing education opportunities on Homeland Security possible, places ABCHS in a pivotal position to make significant contributions to the big-picture issues our nation faces each day.
