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 to expedite the restoration of public services, the rehabilitation and recovery of individuals and businesses, and to return the community back to normal.

We achieve our goals through the four phases of emergency management (Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery), conducting training and training exercises, and through education.

Even with the record quiet spring season, non-severe storms can still pose a dangerous risk, especially in the summer. Join us for our next interactive Let's Talk presentation coming up very soon discussing, you guessed it, lightning! SIGN UP HERE:

Fun fact: the narrow rotating column of air w/ showers responsible for reports of funnels this evening is present more often than you can see it. The very moist low-level environment is creating condensation clouds more easily tonight, making these vorticity tubes non-invisible!
