The Emergency Management department is responsible for reducing the effects of disasters before they occur. This is done through identifying threats and hazards, and planning for and coordinating the operations and response needed during a disaster.
We manage resources and coordinate any recovery efforts following a disaster, as well as providing public information. We work with numerous local, volunteer, state, and federal organizations on an ongoing basis. We provide:
Effective and orderly governmental coordination of emergency operations during emergencies
Development and maintenance of the County's Emergency Operations Plan (EOP)
Coordination of emergency management activities, services, and programs within Golden Valley County, including:
Teaching people how to prepare for a disaster
Helping prepare first responders
Request for disaster assistance available to our communities, businesses, and individuals following a disaster
