What is Emergency Management?

  • Emergency Management is a coordinated effort, involving local, state, and federal government agencies as well as volunteer organizations and businesses.
  • These various entities assist citizens and their communities to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and eliminate or reduce the effects of natural, civil, and technology emergencies and disasters.
  • The primary goal of emergency management is to prevent injuries, save lives, and reduce property damage in your community.

Four Phases of Comprehensive Emergency Management

  • Mitigation:  Activities which reduce or eliminate the degree of risk to human life or property
  • Preparedness:  Pre-disaster activities to develop and maintain capabilities or respond rapidly and effectively to emergencies, disasters
  • Response:  Activities to assess and contain the effects of disasters, provide life support to victims, and deliver emergency services
  • Recovery:  Activities to restore damaged facilities and equipment, and support the economic and social revitalization of affected areas to their pre-emergency status
