Office of Emergency Services
The Office of Emergency Services (OES) coordinates the overall county response to disasters. OES is responsible for alerting and notifying appropriate agencies when disaster strikes; coordinating all agencies that respond; ensuring resources are available and mobilized in times of disaster; developing plans and procedures for response to and recovery from disasters; and developing and providing preparedness materials for the public.
OES provides for coordination of plans and programs countywide to ensure protection of life and property.

September is National Preparedness Month
Disaster preparedness is a grassroots effort and starts with you. There are things you can do now to effectively guard the wellbeing of your family when a disaster occurs. This includes:
Does Your Family have an Emergency Plan?
Visit www.ready.gov and learn what to do before, during and after an emergency.
Download their Family Emergency Plan worksheet and sit down with your family to decide how you will get in contact with each other, where you will go and what you will do in an emergency. Print out their Family Emergency Plan card for younger or special need members of the family to keep on their person.
