     Emergency Management is defined as the coordination of local responders, state and federal agencies, and volunteer organizations. An Emergency Management program enhances protection of the community and its citizens when disaster strikes through planning, training, and education.
     The Department of Emergency Management assists county department heads in developing and maintaining operational plans; assists local industry in developing emergency plans and capabilities in support of the local government plan, and is responsible for coordinating maintenance and revision of the Local Emergency Operations Plan (LEOP), which is required by state statute. Emergency Managers guide their jurisdictions toward National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliance, a system that uses standardized practices. 
Public education and citizen preparedness play a large role. It is important that the public be aware of the power they possess to take care of themselves first, before a greater response is needed. The EM speaks to civic groups, distributes information and provides training.
     The Emergency Manager is expected to serve as the coordinator and advisor to local officials before, during, and following disasters. In this role, the Emergency Manager brings awareness of potential, as well as existing, problems and suggests solutions based on the needs of the community and the resources available. During times of crises, the Emergency Manager keeps local officials apprised of situations so they can make the best decisions possible for response and recovery efforts.
