In the event of a disaster, Delaware County Emergency Management coordinates the county’s resources and agencies to reduce the impact it has on the county.
The Delaware County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s main goal is to save lives, prevent injuries, and protect property and the environment from “All Hazards” – Natural, Manmade, or Terrorism.
We strive reduce or eliminate the effects of day to day emergencies and large scale disasters in Delaware County through preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery.
We achieve our goals through the four phases of emergency management (Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery), conducting training and training exercises, and through education.
