EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

WHAT DOES EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DO?
MITIGATION – PREPAREDNESS – RESPONSE - RECOVERY

Emergency Management aspires to achieve a proactive, risk-based program, which will increase operational efficiency during emergency and disaster situations by:
  • Providing reliable, state-of-the-art emergency communication systems within the county

  • An effective floodplain management program that reduces flood loss and reduces the cost of National Flood Insurance premiums
  • Assist local agencies with training

  • Coordinate a yearly Disaster Exercise giving local industry professionals and response agencies the chance to work together.

  • Maintain the Emergency Operations Plan, Mitigation Plan, and all other Federal Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency documentation.
