How we Live



The provision of a robust emergency services system is essential to ensure that the daily and long-term health and safety needs of county residents are met.


Coordination between the Department of Emergency Services, municipalities, and service providers will continue, and evolve to address contemporary issues as they relate to emergency services. The county will continue to update services (such as operating the 911 system and providing countywide hazardous material spill response) and plans (including the Emergency Operations Plan and Hazard Mitigation Plan) as needed. Support of training across all emergency service disciplines will continue. Municipal partners should implement local plans and programs that are both consistent with and complement countywide plans.
