Training is essential for an effective disaster response. Our fire fighters, police officers, and EMS are very good at handling emergencies and crisis situations. However, when disaster strikes on a large scale, extraordinary measures are needed to manage our resources and deal with situations that are not normally part of our daily functions. This is where training becomes very important. The Office of Emergency Management works with the city and county agencies to identify and coordinate appropriate training opportunities.
The Office of Emergency Management takes an “all hazards” approach to disaster management which is reflected in our disaster plan. The plan is made up of several components that include the Basic Plan. It is the job of the Office of Emergency Management to gather the local experts in these areas to write, regularly review, and when necessary update the basic plan.
Leon County Emergency Management hopes this website provides the citizens of Leon County with the proper information that is needed to make informed decisions and preparations regarding your disaster preparedness plans.
During a storm event, it is our goal to provide the latest emergency information available regarding protective action decisions and safety information.
