Disaster response measured

A legislative audit report released Tuesday says the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management needs to do a better job of meeting performance goals. Auditors briefed lawmakers Tuesday morning on the finding that while the agency has done a good job of stating its goals for disaster response and emergency management, it's not tracking whether or not it's achieving those goals. Auditors recommended the agency come up with new performance measures that it can adequately track. The state Division of Homeland Security responded, saying it's hard to provide concrete performance measures for things like disaster response.
