Center for Health and Homeland Security

The University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security (CHHS) is a university academic center that works side-by-side with the nation's top federal, state, and local emergency responders, assisting them in the development of plans, strategies, policies, regulations, and legislation to ensure the safety of our citizens in the event of man-made or natural catastrophic events. CHHS has grown dramatically since its founding in 2002, now boasting a staff of more than 70 experts and professionals who focus on general emergency preparedness planning, continuity of operations planning and training, preparation of special needs populations during catastrophic events, mass evacuation and sheltering planning, emergency communication systems, hospital coordination, table top and field emergency response exercises, the provision of adequate energy supplies during emergencies, and grant writing assistance for governmental institutions seeking funding for emergency planning efforts.

The Center was founded and is directed by Michael Greenberger, JD, who also serves as a Law School Professor at the University of Maryland.
