Regional Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee (REPAC)
Established in November 2004, the Regional Emergency Preparedness Advisory Committee is a Technical Committee of the Emergency Preparedness Planning Council (EPPC), which was established and authorized by North Central Texas Council of Governments' Executive Board. The scope of the REPAC is to assist the Council in carrying out its duties and responsibilities and to formulate strategies and recommendations to affect an approach to accomplish coordinated and integrated emergency preparedness planning. The initial focus was on reviewing and approving regional homeland security projects. Subsequent activities will include strategic planning, project implementation, evaluation of ongoing regional projects, and other current and future issues facing our region.
REPAC membership consists of sixteen county representatives, three urban area representatives, fourteen subject matter experts representatives, and leadership. The subject matter expert representatives come from a wide range of disciplines including police, fire, emergency management, public works, communications, medical/public health, and education.
REPAC meets quarterly to hear reports from various working groups and insure homeland security grant projects are completed in a timely manner. Meeting information is provided below.
