During emergency situations, such as a wildfire, the aftermath of a tornado with widespread damage or terrorist event, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) would be activated. The EOC brings together key agencies in one room to facilitate sheltering of evacuees, search and rescue, law enforcement, debris removal and much more. Emergency Management also activates the citizen information lines to pass on critical information to concerned residents and visitors.

Emergency Management plays a key role in evacuating citizens who are in danger and registering those who need special medical attention or would require transportation to a shelter. For more information on the Special Needs Program, call (719)523-6796.
