The Environmental Emergency Response Section is very active with homeland security. As we have learned by past events, a disaster can strike without warning. The section's goal is to be prepared for any emergency. In the event of a homeland security threat, the department can use its training and equipment to aid Missouri's existing 28 Homeland Security Hazardous Materials Teams and help better serve and protect the citizens of Missouri and its natural resources.
