Local Emergency Management
Local Emergency Management Departments
The role of your local emergency management department involves several components. One is emergency planning and coordination between state, local, and federal emergency response. This also includes emergency communication and coordination with private sector agencies. Local emergency departments also play an integral role in mitigating, preparing, responding, and recovering from potential disasters. These departments offer information about sheltering in place, different shelters in the area, evacuation, how to create an emergency supply kit, and resources concerning senior and functional needs in an emergency.
