We hope that the information contained within this site will help guide you in preparing for and surviving through an extreme event.
The purpose of the Emergency Management Agency is to create, review and update emergency operation plans for extreme events that occur in our area. Some of the plans include; heating and cooling shelters, weather events, pandemic events, evacuation and transportation. Having this information available to our citizens, businesses, and guests will help to keep them informed and safe.
We provide information before an event to let you know what the event is and what to expect during and after the event. Information will be provided during the event as much as possible, and post event will include information on what happened, guidance towards resources and assistance to everyone to return things back to as close as normal as possible.
Having coordinated and planned responses to these types of extreme events helps keep everyone informed and safe. Please take the time to review the information on this site so that you can use it when the time comes.
