Version 3.0 of the Ohio Homeland Security Strategic Plan is
designed to provide a blueprint for coordination among the
multiple disciplines and jurisdictions across Ohio. This coordination
is critical to establishing a consistent course of action for all-hazards
preparedness, response, and recovery efforts.
The Plan is a living document derived from the expertise of first
responders, government officials, non-governmental organizations,
private citizens and many others representing interests across the
state and will require critical review periodically in order to maintain
its mission and remain relevant to all involved stakeholders. I
commend the individuals who served on the many committees that
worked so tirelessly to revise Version 2.0 of the Strategic Plan into
its current form.
