Warren County Emergency Management
Warren County, with a residential population of more than forty thousand persons, is vulnerable to many hazards, all of which have the potential to disrupt the community, create damage, and cause injury or death to the citizens of the county. An Emergency is defined as any event, which threatens to, or actually does, inflict damage to property or people. A Disaster is defined as an emergency of such magnitude that resource capabilities (personnel, equipment, or financial) are exceeded and/or overwhelmed to require assistance from state and federal agencies.
Emergency Management is a coordinated effort to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to and recover from an emergency or disaster. The Emergency Management Agency's office is a result of the changing attitude of governmental bodies; changing from a reaction point of view to a readiness state.
