What is Emergency Management?

Emergency management involves planning, response, assignment and coordination of available resources, requesting of additional resources when shortfalls are observed, mitigation, preparedness, and recovery for natural or man-made emergencies. It provides for the safety of our citizens. Since most known possible hazards have been identified, we continually review and develop plans to address the needs before, during and after an emergency or disaster. We work together with our cities, neighboring counties, and Georgia Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security in order to ensure a correct and adequate response will be made in the event of an emergency or disaster.
