Emergency Management

Mission:

To provide Worth County residents, businesses and industries, non-profit organizations, and local governments the education and support necessary to reduce the loss of life and human suffering; to minimize property damage; and to protect environmental sensitive areas from all types of disasters through a comprehensive, risk-based, all-hazard emergency management program.

Vision Statement:

The goal of the Worth County Emergency Management Agency is to educate the Citizens of Worth County about their ongoing role in preparing for emergencies through education, community outreach and training. Through creating an increased emphasis on disaster preparedness, the Worth County Emergency Management Agency looks forward to reinforcing interdepartmental communications and cooperation throughout our County.
