Emergency Management

The Emergency Management Department is tasked with the discipline of dealing with and avoiding risks within our community. This department has 4 phases for managing emergencies:

  • Assist the community in the recovery and restoration of the affected area so it is returned to it’s original state
  • Coordinate with area stakeholders to plan, organize, train and equip them so that everyone is better prepared for disasters
  • Work with the community to identify hazards and take steps to prevent hazards before developing into disasters
  • Mobilize necessary emergency services to deal with the emergency up to and including a national response

Roscommon County Emergency Management is committed to serve the community in time of disaster.
