Emergency Management is a community wide effort to incorporate available government, private and civic resources and to coordinate their application to mitigating against, preparing for, responding to and recovering from significant emergencies and disasters that can impact our county wide community.

Emergencies and disasters impact local citizens and community systems first and the most effective response is primarily performed by local emergency services and support organizations. Truly neighbors helping neighbors in time of need.

The Wayne County Emergency Management Agency is the unit of county government established under state law and county ordinance responsible for coordinating the efforts of these services and organizations through comprehensive "all hazard" planning, effective training and realist exercises.


OUR MISSION

To Save Lives, Protect Property and the
Environment in Our Wayne County Community.

OUR MOTTO

Training to Serve,
Planning to Protect,
Acting to Save.

Supporting Partners

Our supporting partners provide the hard work of making our Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan effective. When emergencies or disasters occur, they are the ones "out there" treating the injured, keeping law and order, putting out the fires, containing the spilled chemical, getting the electric power restored, operating the shelters for displaced persons, opening up the roads, clearing away the debris and a host of other things that must be done. We are proud of our fire fighters, law enforcement officers, EMS providers, hospital staff, local utility services, local businesses, churches, school districts, colleges, and civic and community organizations that take their emergency management responsibilities seriously and serve our community so well.
