The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security intends to amend existing rules. The purpose of amending the rules are as follows: Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the Wyoming Emergency Response Rules have been consolidated into one chapter with three sections. Subsection (iv) was added to Section 2(a)(i)(d.) and verbiage was added to Section 2(a)(i)(e.) to clarify the training requirements of Regional Emergency Response Team members. Sections (a) and (b) in former Chapter 2 Section 2 were combined into one subsection in the new version of the rules in Section 2(b). Four sections of former Chapter 4 were consolidated into one section in Section 3 of the new version of the rules and the requirement of a duplicate report was eliminated from that section. Section 2(a)(i)(f.)  was added to the rules providing policy direction for the use of drugs and alcohol by the Regional Emergency Response Team members.

Office of Inspector General audit on Homeland Security program - status update

The Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS) was audited on Fiscal Year 2010 - 2014 grants by the Office of Inspector General in the summer of 2013. The following information is the current result of the audit. This audit is an open audit – meaning that WOHS is still working with subgrantees, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) to supply any additional information needed to resolve questions that arose during the audit. We anticipate the recommendations to be resolved in August of 2014. For the full status update click here.
