Emergency Management

The Emergency Management Division is responsible for coordinating Dutchess County's response to requests for emergency disaster assistance from municipalities. This assistance can include support to local incident commanders during emergencies, the use of the County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to manage assets and resources deployed in a large-scale disaster and being a resource for receiving assistance and support at the state and federal levels such as through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The Division is also responsible for the County's emergency preparedness activities, working with local, state, federal and private sector partners in emergency management to plan and prepare for large-scale, multi-jurisdictional responses to disasters.
