The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Health Affairs (OHA) has been working diligently with the DHS Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to foster collaboration between Emergency Medical Services (EMS) stakeholders and fusion centers. A new resource guide was recently distributed to all fusion centers on behalf of Scott McAllister, Deputy Under Secretary for State and Local Program Office, DHS I&A and Dr. Alexander G. Garza, Assistant Secretary for Health Affairs and Chief Medical Officer, DHS OHA to promote awareness and strengthen relations between EMS stakeholders and fusion centers.
