Private Sector Partners


Our strength is in the diversity of our emergency management education and experience.

According to the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), “There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof.” Additional sectors have been added, including National Monuments and Icons and Postal and Shipping. Michigan was the first state to identify education as a critical infrastructure, resulting in a total of 19 sectors.

The Michigan Emergency Management Association represents all 19 sectors of critical infrastructure in support of Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21): Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience aims to advance the national policy by strengthening and maintaining secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure and facilitating collaboration amongst these partners in Michigan.
