The Citywide Continuity Program’s purpose is to facilitate the mitigation, prevention, response, and recovery of City services from disruptions through developing, maintaining, and expanding continuity of operations plans (COOPs) and the Continuity of Government (COG) plan. As outlined in the COG plan, the City should ensure internal City business processes, facilities, personnel, and other City resources are functional in order to continue to serve the residents of Denver, regardless of the cause of a service disruption. 

Securing The Cities

The purpose of Securing the Cities (STC) Program is to augment local resources with federal funding with the goal of detecting, deterring, and defending against terror attacks that use radioactive material. In the development and operations of the Program, Denver OEM collaborates with five Principal Partners: Colorado State Patrol, Denver Department of Public Health and Environment, Denver Fire Department, Denver Health and Hospital Administration and Denver Police Department. When the Program was awarded in 2019, Denver joined a select group of cities, including New York, Los Angeles, the National Capital Region, Houston, and Chicago to develop a national and local safety net via equipment, training, and exercise.
