Elected officials play a crucial role in public safety. Their understanding and support of emergency management is vital to the safety and well-being of the public and communities.

Elected officials must have a clear understanding of how government responds to emergencies and disasters, what resources are available, what types of assistance can be provided to citizens, and how much time it may take to deliver that assistance.

They must be able to instill a sense of calm in disaster victims and the public, and temper expectations of what government can do to aid in the recovery. A coordinated message between elected officials and emergency management is necessary so people do not receive conflicting information.

To help you better serve your community, we developed an Elected Officials Guide. The guide is a condensed summary of emergency management responsibilities in the event of an emergency or disaster. It is designed to provide elected officials with an understanding and overview of emergency management at the county level.
