Field Support Unit

The DEMHS Field Support Coordination Unit, which reports to the State Emergency Management Director, performs a number of functions designed to enhance and support field operations, including statewide interoperable communications.  The Unit also provides direct communications from the State Emergency Operations Center to the five DEMHS Regional Offices and to every municipality in Connecticut as needed during a significant incident. This unit is responsible for internal logistics for the Division on a daily basis and during activations of the SEOC.
