Emergency management is the managerial function charged with creating the framework within which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters.  In the event of a large incident or event, the office supervises and activates the Emergency Operations Center to support incidents and events, as well as oversight on mitigation and planning.

Emergency Management disseminates information and provides training to various emergency-response agencies.

It also deals with situations related to SARA Title III Community Right to Know.  The office updates and maintains an emergency resource list and an Emergency Operations Plan, and organizes and supports the Local Emergency Planning Committee.

In addition, grants are managed to bring in training and improve responder equipment and infrastructure.
