Mission
The Fall River County Emergency Management Department has broad discretion and functions within the frame work of Emergency Management.  Perform functions of planning, organization, coordination, training, equipment and facility reviews relative to disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.

Fall River County Emergency Management also coordinates 9-1-1, National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), and Search and Rescue (SAR). As of January 2010 Emergency Management is also responsible for managing the 9-1-1 communications in Fall River County.

Our purpose is to protect Fall River County residents and their property from the effects of natural, manmade, and technological disasters.  To fulfill our charge, we recognize the four phases of emergency management:

  • Preparedness – Planning, training and exercising on how to respond to an emergency.
  • Response – Coordinating activities and resources as the emergency is evolving.
  • Recovery – Assisting the local jurisdiction to return to a normal lifestyle.
  • Mitigation – Ways to reduce or eliminate loss if the same event occurs again.
