About the Riverside UASI

Created in 2008 in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the United States by al-Qaeda, the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) is the only federal homeland security grant program that requires regional governance, strategic planning and investing involving all disciplines - law enforcement, fire service, public health and medical, public works, critical infrastructure owners and operators, and emergency management – in order to acquire the necessary plans, equipment, training and exercises to prevent, protect against, respond to and recover from threats and acts of terrorism and other major hazards.

This program was established to enhance the preparedness level of high threat communities. With support from the UASI and related Homeland Security grant programs, stakeholders in the Riverside/San Bernardino urban areas are engaged in a multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional partnership to improve local capacity to prepare for, protect against, response to and recover from catastrophic incidents.
