North Central All-Hazards (Emergency Management) Region (NCR) is one of nine emergency preparedness and response Regions within the State of Colorado. The NCR is organized around ten counties (and their cities, districts, towns and municipalities): Adams County, Arapahoe County, Boulder County, Broomfield County, Clear Creek County, Denver County, Douglas County, Elbert County, Gilpin County & Jefferson County.
In 2002, Governor Owens announced the establishment of seven regions to support this response capability. These seven regions were later expanded to nine as part of the continuing effort to coordinate the response and foster the development of professional relationships. Governor Owens’ Executive Order in 2003 designated each region as an All-Hazards Emergency Management Region.
