The Emergency Management Division is responsible for work in the development, implementation and management of countywide disaster prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.
Emergency Management is responsible for the County’s all-hazard Comprehensive Emergency Plan and coordinates the activities for the County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC, when activated, is a central location where representatives of local government and private sector agencies convene during disaster situations to make decisions, set priorities, and coordinate resources for response and recovery.
Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Meeting Announcement
