Emergency Management

ALAN S. HARRIS, EMERGENCY MANAGER

Mission

Provide a resilient emergency management structure dedicated to provide for the safety and welfare of the public through the preservation of life, health, property, and the environment.

 

Vision

To be recognized by our community as a model of excellence in providing services through preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation activities, an organization that is synonymous with the term leadership, an organization that fosters an environment of involvement, trust, coordination and cohesion.

Disaster The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for performing technical work in the development, implementation, and management of countywide disaster response, recovery, mitigation, risk reduction, prevention, and preparedness. The emergency management team manages and coordinates the Emergency Operations Center, with support from State and Federal organizations during times of emergency. The Office of Emergency Management provides countywide planning, training and exercise programs in order to be prepared for natural, technological, and/or man-made emergencies.

The development of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP), and Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) is a cooperative effort with various local government entities, non-profit agencies, and faith based organizations. The CEMP provides guidance for how agencies will respond threats or actual disasters in Seminole County. The COOP addresses continuation of critical functions if damage to infrastructures occurs in an emergency. Finally, the LMS provides goals and objectives in an effort to strengthen critical infrastructure from all hazards.

Emergency Operations Center The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the development and maintenance of plans that include evacuation, disaster housing, emergency shelters, debris management, damage assessments, and homeland security. The Office also provides guidance to its municipalities and support agencies on the development of disaster management plans.

Teaching citizens how to prepare themselves for disasters is critical to the resilience of Seminole County. Emergency management staff provide hours of lectures to student groups, homeowners associations, faith-based organizations, businesses, and various institutions and associations. These workshops and seminars focus on disaster preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation techniques. Throughout the year, the Office provides informational brochures and guides, establishes preparedness fairs and events, produces public service announcements and manages the County's preparedness website (www.prepareseminole.org).
