Services - Emergency Services

The role of the Emergency Services Division encompasses emergency preparedness which is a continuing cycle that includes mitigation, response and recovery. The office maintains the development and updating of the county's emergency operations plans. These plans address all types of hazards, including: nuclear, hazardous materials, terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, wildfires, flooding, severe weather, and more.

During a disaster, emergency preparedness brings key personnel into the Emergency Operations Center to coordinate the response and recovery from the disaster.

The primary function of the Emergency Operations is to coordinate activities of the Sheriff's Office in the event of a natural disaster.
