State Emergency Communications Committees, or SECCs, are volunteer non-governmental organizations that develop plans for administering the Emergency Alert System in each state. Committee members typically represent EAS participants, such as broadcasters and cable companies, and may also include state and local government officials. The Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau provides this list of SECCs as a resource for Emergency Alert System stakeholders.
