Natural disasters and manmade disasters, whether intentinal or unintentional, can result in pollution that threatens human health, the environment and our economy.

Provides an overview of EPA's homeland security roles and responsibilities, and links to specific homeland security issues: water security, research, emergency.

The United States is regularly affected by such disasters. Communities must be resilient to such catastrophes.

Resilience requires scientific information to support good decisions. EPA's Homeland Security Research Program provides science and technology needed to rapidly and effectively respond to environmental catastrophes.
