Alaska Partnership for Infrastructure Protection


The Alaska Partnership for Infrastructure Protection, or APIP, works to integrate the private and public sector critical infrastructure owners into the municipal, state, and federal emergency framework, participating in all stages of the disaster cycle, from preparedness and mitigation through to response and recovery. APIP’s purpose is to improve Alaska’s emergency management capabilities through the following:

  • Resource identification, management, and sharing
  • Information sharing and management
  • Emergency planning and response process improvement
  • Infrastructure sector characterization to understand and address vulnerabilities, dependencies, and single points of failure
  • Provide awareness of physical security, cyber security, law enforcement, and antiterrorism threats
  • Strengthen individual business’s response capacity
  • Team building and partnering for exercises
  • Make recommendations for priorities of protection, support, and recovery of critical infrastructure
  • Provide a safe partnership environment for Critical Infrastructure owners/operators to increase resiliency statewide

To accomplish these broad mission areas, APIP may:

  • Establish infrastructure maps
  • Share infrastructure information with APIP partners and other parties, as required
  • Foster a planning and response environment for critical infrastructure resource holders
  • Develop internal communications procedures
  • Conduct various types of internal exercises and training opportunities
