What is Emergency Management?

Emergency Management assists with planning and coordination between:

  • Emergency communications
  • Local, state, and federal emergency response agencies
  • Municipal and private sector agencies

Working together, these groups provide a framework that encompasses all hazards and all levels of government. Agencies work together for all types of emergencies, whether it is a swift water rescue, a wildfire, or a hurricane.

During large emergencies such as hurricanes, the Emergency Management Department operates the County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC).

There are four phases of Emergency Management: preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.
