Public Safety Outreach- Southeastern Pennsylvania Regional Task Force

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Regional Task Force is comprised of the city of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery, and the adjacent counties in New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland.  The Task Force combines the efforts of Federal and State agencies, as well as the private sector, in the preparation of catastrophic events that would overwhelm the capabilities of a single county.  Lafayette Group prepares a quarterly newsletter and a series of informational bulletins on communications issues, which has included articles on the Southeast Communications Network and Knowledge Center, a web-based interactive incident management tool used by the Task Force.  The bulletin has also provided updates on recent events and incidents requiring emergency communications deployment and announcements regarding upcoming meetings and training in the region, such as All-Hazards Communication Unit Leaders training and Regional Urban Areas Security Initiative Workshops.
