MISSION 
To provide a comprehensive and integrated emergency management program to prepare the whole community for major emergencies and disasters.


VISION
To build a safe and disaster resilient future for our community through effective public and private relationships.

VALUES
Commitment, Professionalism, Dependability, Accountability

One of the most basic and fundamental responsibilities of government is to provide for the safety and welfare of its citizens before, during and after major emergencies and disasters. Therefore, an effective County-wide emergency Management Program should always remain as one of the highest priorities of elected and appointed officials at all levels. However individual citizens must also accept personal responsibility within their own means and abilities to be constantly aware of risk and always prepared to take protective actions when necessary for their own safety as well as that of their families, friends and property.
