The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) and the Mariana Regional Fusion Center (MRFC) hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the recent completion of the MRFC facility on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. at the GHS/OCD in Agana Heights.
The purpose of the ribbon cutting ceremony was to commemorate the recent completion of the expanded MRFC facility. The MRFC was first recognized as the nation’s 78th Fusion Center in April 2013. Since then, the MRFC has expanded to 12 full time intelligence analysts, with the inclusion of the Fusion Liaison Officers (FLO) Program with partnerships from local, private, and federal partner agencies. The MRFC also partner with the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Fusion Center node out of Saipan.
The new facility provides more space for the expanding MRFC team and allows for greater connectivity and continuity of operations within the MRFC, providing more communication tools needed to work with stakeholders and partners in homeland security and emergency management. The facility provides the capability to enhance information sharing system to prevent crime and terrorism in the Asia-Pacific region.
The community is always reminded of the resource to report any suspicious activity to the MRFC online at https://mlrin.org/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org, following the Department of Homeland Security’s campaign, “If You See Something, Say Something.”
