Emergency Management

The Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the regional Emergency Management Agency, which provides disaster preparation, prevention, response and recovery services to citizens and businesses. We work with local responders to create plans, conduct training, and secure equipment to enhance emergency preparedness for our community. We also work closely with the Ohio Emergency Management Agency and work to secure funding, training, and information for our local emergency response.
