Region 2 REPT


The Regional Emergency Planning Team (REPT) for DEMHS  Region 2 operates under their established bylaws which addresses their mission, membership and procedures. The Multi-jurisdictional REPT’s are supported by Regional Emergency Support Functions (RESFs). These RESFs are discipline oriented workgroups that provide collaborative planning and resource support within each discipline and act as subcommittees to the Region 2 REPT.


The REPT’s authority derives from Connecticut General Statutes Title 28, including Conn. Gen. Stat. §§28-1b(a)(4) and (5) and other provisions dealing with the Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS.)


DEMHS Region 2 is comprised of thirty (30) towns and cities located in the south-central portion of the State of Connecticut, it consists of urban, suburban and rural communities located on the shoreline and within the Connecticut River Estuary. New Haven, the largest city in this region has a large commercial and industrial economy with many of the surrounding towns comprising the southern terminus of the "New Haven-Hartford-Springfield Knowledge Corridor".


DEMHS Region 2 encompasses parts of three counties within the State of Connecticut (New Haven, Middlesex and Fairfield). The encompassed counties are unique in nature which require the identification of the populations of individuals with similar cultural, ethnic or functional needs. Identifying the populations served by the RESP, adequately provides the appropriate response.
