The Office of Emergency Management has a mission which is mandated under Ohio Revised Code Section 5502. which requires every county to have an Emergency Management program. The purpose of such a program is to minimize the effects of a disaster and to help the community recover. There is a 4-stage process to the program.
- Preparedness (planning)
- Mitigation (identify and attempt to minimize risk)
- Response (actions taken during the actual event)
- Recovery (the work needed to restore the community)
The Emergency Management Office is asking all citizens to prepare for the Possible. Feel free to contact the EMA office or click the following links to go to the FEMA and OHIO EMA web sites.
