Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization, and Security (DPTMS)

DPTMS’ structure contains three divisions: Plans and Operations Division, Training Division and the Security and Intelligence Division.  The directorate provides command and control and daily operations to U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hamilton.  DPTMS executes support of operational, disaster, antiterrorism, and special plans, policies and directives.  DPTMS is responsible for coordinating inspections, exercises, managing the personnel security program and provides audiovisual support.  The directorate also coordinates training, ceremonies, special events and observances.  DPTMS maintains close liaison with local, state and federal emergency response agencies and coordinates disaster management function:


The Plans and Operations Division formulates, coordinates and executes operational, emergency and disaster plans and policies for the Garrison and Mission Partners.  The team performs a myriad of activities in support of Fort Hamilton, during emergencies from the Emergency Operations Center, and serves as the Command and Control element for tracking, coordinating and reporting to the command and higher headquarters. Serves as the conduit between higher headquarters and garrison directorates for taskings, managing and coordinating the use of post facilities, military support requests, ceremonies and special events support.

The Operations Division coordinates:

  • Helicopter Landing Zone requests
  • Ceremonies and Special Events equipment (flags, sabers, harnesses, etc.)

The threat of terrorist activity is persistent and enduring. Fort Hamilton's Anti-terrorism officer executes a comprehensive Antiterrorism program that educates, deters, defeats or mitigates Force Protection vulnerabilities that provide an appropriate level of safety and security for all Soldiers, Civilian workforce, Family-members, Contractor's, infrastructure and Critical information. The ATO ensures Garrison and Mission Partners identify, mitigate and protect vulnerable areas from acts of terrorism or criminal attacks. The Army needs everyone’s help (including contractors) in protecting against the threat of terrorism. By understanding your role and having a base of knowing of the possible indicators of suspicious activity or behavior, every person can serve as an extra set of “eyes and ears” for law enforcement and security. If you see something suspicious -- report it!


The Emergency Management Program develops and coordinates Contingency Plans, Exercises, Continuity of Operations program (COOP), Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and High Yield Explosives (CBRNE) planning and preparedness, and the Ready Army Program.  The EM Specialists provides information, training and exercises to prepare for weather and natural hazards, diseases, CBRNE emergencies, emergency actions during emergencies, family plans and emergency kits to the Fort Hamilton Military Community.  Maintains close liaison with local, state, and federal emergency response agencies and coordinates efforts in the event of an emergency or disaster incident.
