Welcome to RPCfirst

firstRPCfirst—the Regional Partnership Council—is an umbrella organization formed by ChicagoFIRST in 2005 to foster collaboration among the regional partnerships that have formed across the United States to focus on homeland security and emergency management issues with the public sector. These public/private partnerships have formed organically in various cities or states, originally within the banking/finance sector, but several have developed into multi-sector coalitions.

The first few partnerships within the financial sector formed soon after ChicagoFIRST organized in 2003. By the end of 2005, a half dozen such organizations had developed, and there are now over twenty groups participating in RPCfirst.

Over the years, the value of these coalitions collaborating with each other to share best practices and lessons learned became more and more evident. Beginning in 2006, the group began holding quarterly conference calls, and then, in 2007, ChicagoFIRST partnered with public sector partners to host and facilitate annual in-person meetings around the country for RPCfirst members.

RPCfirst mission

The mission of RPCfirst is to create a forum within which the FIRST member coalitions:

  • Share lessons learned and best practices about how these partnerships can coordinate with local, county, and state government;
  • Participate in national homeland security policy making through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security partnership structure; and
  • Leverage their relationship with one another to engage in business continuity and homeland security efforts effectively and efficiently.
