Region 8: Who We Are


Who We Are  

ABOUT OUR REGION 

Serving just over 11 million people and covering 573,259 square miles of mountains, rivers, high deserts, plains, farmland, urban areas, unique geologic features and one of the largest coal reserves in the world, Region 8 is a complicated and ever-changing part of the country. Natural risks impacting the area are diverse. Drought and wildfire in summer and fall, flash floods following extreme rain and hail events in spring, plus snow and ice storms in winter all pose significant threats to critical infrastructure and the surrounding communities. Adverse human-caused events, such as cyber and physical security attacks, chemical hazards, and shooting and bombing incidents, also have lasting and dramatic effects. Regardless of the nature or cause of an incident, CISA Region 8 staff is ready to help partners build resilience and readiness for mitigating risk and provide training and program exercises to support preventative and proactive planning.
