Emergency management is the managerial function that is charged with creating the framework within the communities they support, to reduce vulnerabilities to known and unknown hazards, and cope with all aspects of disasters.
Emergency management protects the communities they support by coordination and integration of all functions necessary to build, maintain and improve the ability to mitigate against, protect from, plan, train, and exercise response and most importantly recover from risks faced.
Emergency Management isn’t just a one, two or three person job though, it takes an entire community.
We all need to start with ourselves and our loved ones. Have a plan, you never know what tomorrow may bring.
