Emergency Response

The Homeland Security and Emergency Response branch of HSEM works to protect the lives and property of Minnesotans from the threat or act of terrorism.

It does this through Emergency Alert System, a number of emergency response teams, a partnership with the National Guard’s 55th Civil Support Team and the Emergency Management Assistance Compact. 

Decontamination Trailers


Decontamination Trailers are strategically placed across Minnesota to help first responders who may encounter hazardous materials on the job. These trailers are also available for use as showers for communities during an emergency or disaster.

HSEM has posted this training video so all jurisdictions will have advance knowledge of their use.
