About Disaster Management

We coordinate plans and operations to minimize the impact of incidents or disasters. We work with public and private sector partners to ensure a coordinated community response.

Our work helps the public be better prepared in the event of a large-scale emergency or disaster.

We operate in the following areas:

We also oversee the Medical Examiner's Office, which investigates deaths in the county.

Emergency Operations

When activated, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) provides a central location from which local government can manage disaster response in the county. 

The Emergency Operation Center:

Damage assessment

We conduct a damage assessment following incidents with significant impacts to infrastructure and property. This includes reports of damages to facilities and homes to assess the financial losses and community impacts.

Disaster exercises

We lead a disaster exercise program that includes a series of disaster simulations.

Exercises are the primary tool for evaluating preparedness, response and recovery capabilities.

Training

We provide training to county employees and partners to ensure a coordinated response.

Public education and outreach

The public education program educates employees and residents about personal preparedness.

Hazard mitigation

We have an active hazard mitigation program to make our county more resilient in the event of a disaster.
