Mission Statement

Jefferson County's Office of Emergency Management's (O.E.M.) mission is to minimize loss of life and personal injury, damage to property and the environment from disasters. We strive to accomplish this through a continuing program of outreach, coordination, planning, training, and exercising, for "all hazards" and for all four phases of emergency management -- mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
