Jackson County Emergency Management Program is responsible for the mitigation, preparedness, planning, coordination of response, and recovery activities related to county emergencies and disasters.  County Emergency Management also serves as the primary coordination point between local, State, and Federal agencies when emergency activities are affecting more than one jurisdiction, county department, incorporated city, unincorporated area, special district, or other partner agencies.

Emergency management is the managerial function charged with creating the framework within which communities mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters.

Jackson County Emergency Management focuses on the following primary areas:
  • All-hazards disaster planning
  • Countywide testing, training and exercises
  • Public education and outreach
  • Public alert and warning
  • Emergency Operations Center (EOC) operations
