Responsibilities
Washington County Emergency Management (WCEM) is responsible for coordinating emergency preparedness throughout the county. In addition to the writing and coordination of emergency operation plans, WCEM offers public education and provides assistance to local jurisdictions and county agencies before, during, and after disasters strike.

WCEM works in collaboration with local, state, and federal officials, and partners with neighboring jurisdictions, to facilitate better preparedness, response, and recovery from natural and human-made disasters.

Emergency Management is:
  • The process of prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery from emergencies and disasters
  • The focal point for overall coordination for all disasters
  • Planning, training, conducting drills, testing equipment and coordinating activities with communities
