Emergency Management

Emergency Operations Center is at a Level III: Monitoring/Normal Conditions

The Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management is within the Public Works Division. Our principle responsibilities are in supporting the safety of our citizens and visitors, protection of our infrastructure, as well as our environmental and cultural resources, and assisting the community in recovery efforts after an incident occurs. We seek to promote safer, less vulnerable communities with the capacity to cope with hazards and disasters. Achieving this is only accomplished by embracing the Whole Community approach, in which emergency management engages business, government at all levels, nonprofit sectors to integrate the needs, capabilities and resources of the communities in all stages of an incident.
